Women in New York City always want to look and feel their best, and some women avail themselves of a breast lift to make this happen. Even if a woman has never had children or breastfed, the “girls” are going to lose their shape simply because of time and gravity. Other reasons for unwanted sagginess are shifting weight gain or loss and genetic factors. A breast lift in NYC can restore breasts that have lost their youthful firmness and shape.
Who is a Candidate for a Breast Lift in NYC?
A candidate for a breast lift in New York City is at least 18 and does not have a serious illness that can interfere with her recovery from the surgery. She doesn’t smoke, has realistic expectations as to what the surgery can accomplish, and is neither pregnant nor nursing. She should also not be planning to lose a large amount of weight, as she would if she planned bariatric surgery. This can affect the outcome of the breast lift.
When the patient has a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons, she should tell them exactly what she wants from her surgery. In turn, our plastic surgeon should go into detail as to what a breast lift does and how it is performed. For example, the surgeon should let the patient know that some breast lifts are done with implants and some without. The doctor will also examine the patient’s breasts, checking their size and shape as well as the elasticity of the skin.
The doctor will also tell the patient everything they need to know to properly prepare for the surgical procedure.
A breast lift involves the removal of excess skin and reshaping and lifting the breast tissue. The skin that remains is tightened. Our surgeon may also add permanent sutures into the breast tissue to add extra support. The operation takes anywhere from one to three hours, and it is performed with general anesthesia.
After a breast lift in NYC, it is important to give your body the time it needs to heal and recover. Our team will provide you with all of the information you need to take the best care of yourself.
