A breast lift can enhance the appearance of the breasts by tightening and lifting loose breasts tissue and improving the overall shape of the breasts. At Glassman Plastic surgery, our team is dedicated to providing our patients with the personalized care they need. Dr. Lawrence Glassman can provide you with beautiful results from your breast lift in NYC.
Breast Lift Overview
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is performed to return youthful shape and lift to breasts that have sagged as a result of weight loss, pregnancy, loss of the skin’s natural elasticity or simply the effects of aging and gravity. The procedure can also reduce areolar size (the dark skin surrounding the nipple), and it can be combined with breast augmentation for added volume and firmness. It is usually done under general anesthesia, and lasts from one to three hours.
Recovering from a Breast Lift
Once the procedure is complete the incisions will be sutured shut and the breasts will be bandaged. There will be some swelling and bruising around the breasts that will subside over the course of your recovery. A surgical bro may need to be worn to provide additional support and to help manage swelling. It will be around two weeks of recovery before you can resume most of your normal activities. Heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided for four weeks or longer.
The Cost of Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift is a highly personalized surgical procedure that can involve the use of different surgical techniques and approaches in order to provide the best possible aesthetic results. During your consultation, Dr. Glassman can go over any questions you have about the procedure and let you know what the expected cost of your breast lift in NYC will be.
