A breast lift is also called a mastopexy and can be helpful in recontouring the breasts for a more desired look, and it can even boost self-confidence. Sometimes it is performed in conjunction with breast augmentation. A breast lift provides many benefits, which we will discuss on our blog today. If you have been considering getting a breast lift in Manhattan, reviewing these benefits may help you decide if it the right time for you.
If you experience any of these aesthetic concerns with your breasts, you may want to consider receiving a breast lift from Manhattan’s board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Aviva Preminger.
Breasts can become droopy from having gained and then lost an excessive amount of weight, especially during pregnancy. Breastfeeding also causes breasts to become flabby and lose their vibrancy. For some, aging or getting older causes breasts to lose their fullness and shape. A breast lift can restore breasts to their desired resting position, and augmentation can also be done to enhance results.
Excess breast tissue can cause them to look deflated and flat. If you desire rounder breasts, a breast lift can fix this problem as well.
Often times, when breasts sag or become loose, the nipples hang below the natural crease of the breasts. A breast lift not only gets rid of excess tissue but may involve repositioning the nipples to a more preferred and natural location on the breasts. Nipples would point in a more forward position instead of down or outward.
Sometimes, the nipples change size or shape, especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding, but also may occur with age. A breast lift can fix this aesthetic concern as well.
Receiving a breast lift is major surgery, although it usually does not require you to stay in a facility overnight. The procedure usually takes between two to three hours, and you should expect to be put under general anesthesia. This means that you need to prepare ahead of time to have someone drive you to and from your surgery, as well as sit with you until you are fully awake from your anesthesia. Also, make arrangements for childcare, pet care, or any housework that needs to be taken care of for the first couple of weeks. Expect to take off about two weeks from work, and only participate in light activity during that time. Swelling may last as long as 8-12 weeks. Results are permanent as long as you do not experience dramatic weight gain and loss again.
It is essential when considering a plastic surgeon in NYC that performs breast lifts that you choose one that is highly-qualified, and board-certified. Dr. Preminger of Preminger Plastic Surgery is considered one of the top-female plastic surgeons in NYC. Being a woman herself, she understands and relates to women and how their looks have a significant impact on self-confidence.
