Breast Lift With or Without Implants
Dermatology, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in New York City (NYC) and Manhattan
If you are looking to restore your breasts to a more youthful position and shape, then a breast lift may be the right procedure for you. A breast lift reshapes breasts that have begun to sag with age, giving them a more youthful shape and position on the chest. A breast lift will not increase the size of breasts, but it can be combined with breast implants to add volume or restore lost volume.
Our board-certified New York City cosmetic surgeons can determine whether or not you are a good breast lift candidate. Call (888) 610-3133 today to schedule a consultation at our Manhattan practice.
A Common Problem
With age, most women experience some sagging of the breasts. Sagging of breasts can occur more rapidly due to:
- Weight gain or loss
- Smoking or other lifestyle choices
Breast augmentation is a procedure for enlarging breasts and can also resolve some amount of sagging due to lost volume, but the procedure that can best reshape sagging breasts is a breast lift.
How a Breast Lift Works
In a breast lift, your breast is reshaped and repositioned to create a more youthful-looking combination of breast tissue and breast skin. Excess breast skin is removed, the nipples are elevated, and existing breast tissue is reformed into a more youthful shape. Although your breast tissue is not removed, your breasts may look smaller (or larger) because of the reshaping.
If you are unhappy with your breast volume, breast implants can be used to increase your breast size as part of the breast lift.
Deciding whether a breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast lift with implants is the best procedure for you depends on a number of factors that we can only determine during consultation. During your consultation, we can listen to your cosmetic goals, make measurements of your breasts, and evaluate your skin condition to recommend the ideal procedure to achieve your desired results.
