Weight fluctuations, childbirth and breastfeeding, and the natural aging process can alter the appearance and texture of a woman’s breasts. To compensate for these changes, some women turn to special bras and articles of clothing that flatter their figures. Other women want a more lasting solution, and choose to undergo breast lift surgery. Renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Craig Foster can perform a breast lift at his Manhattan, New York practice. The procedure is designed to remove sagging, excess tissue and elevate the breasts for a younger, better-proportioned appearance. If you would like to find out how a breast lift can rejuvenate your physique, please contact our practice today and schedule a consultation.
The Breast Lift Procedure
Before he recommends a particular procedure, Dr. Foster will carefully evaluate your unique needs and goals to develop a treatment plan that is best for you. During a private consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss what to expect during your breast lift surgery, as well as the incision pattern and surgical technique that will deliver an optimal outcome and will minimize the length of recovery. Regardless of the specifics of your particular surgery, a breast lift can raise the breasts and alter the position of the nipples for a more youthful silhouette.
Breast lift surgery typically involves creating an anchor-shaped incision that encircles the nipple, runs from beneath the nipple to the base of the breast, and runs along the breast crease. For smaller breasts with a moderate amount of sagging, Dr. Foster may be able to use only an incision around each areola. Through these incisions, Dr. Foster will reposition the breast tissue and remove excess, sagging skin. He may also place the nipples higher on the breast mound. In some cases, he may reduce the size of the areolae for a more balanced, youthful look. With his surgical skill and eye for subtlety, Dr. Foster can create shapely and aesthetically pleasing results that look completely natural.
Candidates for Breast Lift Surgery
Candidates for breast lift surgery should be in good overall health and have breasts that have lost their shape, and begun to sag or droop. Patients should have realistic expectations about what their breast lift procedure can achieve. It is important to keep in mind that while a breast lift can improve the contour and positioning of the breasts, it cannot compensate for lost volume. Women who want to lift and increase the size of their breasts might consider combining a lift with breast augmentation. During your consultation, you can learn which cosmetic breast procedures will deliver the results you want and deserve.
Many women choose a breast lift to help them achieve:
- A perkier bust that enhances their overall figure
- Enhanced symmetry between their breasts
- Improved proportion of their breasts in relation to the rest of their body
- Better-fitting clothes, like low-plunging shirts, swimsuits, or evening gowns
- A great boost in body image and self-confidence
