Aging, pregnancy, and weight loss can all take a toll on the appearance of your breasts. If you’re experiencing sagging or drooping breasts, a breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, can help restore your youthful appearance and improve your self-confidence.
At Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey, our board-certified plastic surgeons specialize in breast lift surgery and use the latest techniques to ensure the best possible results. We work closely with each patient to create a personalized surgical plan that addresses their unique needs and goals.
Breast lift surgery can help address sagging or drooping breasts by removing excess skin, lifting and reshaping the breast tissue, and repositioning the nipple and areola to a more youthful position. The result is a firmer, more youthful breast appearance.
Some of the benefits of breast lift surgery include:
We recommend breast lift surgery for women who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts due to sagging or drooping. Candidates for the procedure should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the results.
Breast lift surgery typically involves making incisions around the areola and down the breast to remove excess skin and reshape the breast tissue. The nipple and areola are then repositioned to a more youthful location on the breast. Our surgeons use the latest techniques to minimize scarring and ensure the best possible results.
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours to complete. You can expect to go home the same day and return to work and other activities within a few weeks.
For women who desire both a lift and an increase in breast volume, a breast lift with implants, also known as augmentation mastopexy, can be a great option. At Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey, our board-certified plastic surgeons have extensive experience performing breast lift with implant surgeries and can help you achieve your desired breast appearance.
A breast lift with implants surgery combines the techniques of a breast lift and breast augmentation. During the procedure, our surgeons will lift and reshape your breasts, reposition your nipples and areolas to a more youthful position, and insert implants to add volume and enhance the shape of your breasts. Our surgeons use the latest techniques to minimize scarring and ensure the best possible results.
Recovery from breast lift surgery typically takes several weeks. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort during this time. Our team will provide you with post-operative instructions and medication to help manage these symptoms and ensure a smooth recovery.
You should avoid strenuous physical activity for several weeks after surgery and wear a supportive bra to help minimize swelling and support the healing process.
Most patients return to work within a week’s time. You can start walking around as soon as you are comfortable after the breast lift procedure. Avoid placing your arms above your head or lifting any heavy objects. Light exercise and moderate workouts can be considered after 3-4 weeks. Difficult workouts should be avoided for a full month. Always consult with your physician before starting an exercise program, as recovery times vary per patient.
