Breast Lift ~ Mastopexy Surgery
Turn Back Time by Lifting Sagging Breasts
The most commonly requested breast surgery is the breast lift, also called a Mastopexy. Aging breasts tend to sag, and the affects of gravity over time often cause the breasts to descend below the chest. Post-childbirth, the breasts can be marked by overstretched skin and skin involution when delicate breast tissue expands during pregnancy and then shrinks back. Natural breast shape can be restored with a breast lift.
A Breast Lift is accomplished not only by lifting the skin of the breasts, but by reshaping the 3-dimensions of the breast to a rounder, firmer, higher appearance. A breast lift may sometimes incorporate a breast augmentation (implants), to better define the natural shape. Mastopexy/Breast Lift surgery brings the breasts back up to a more youthful position.

Is Breast Lift Surgery right for me?
Before and After Gallery: Breast Lift/Mastopexy
Breast lift surgery is a highly individualized procedure. Sagging breasts can occur from heavy breast tissue, weight loss, breastfeeding, pregnancy, or aging. A Breast Lift surgery can literally lift the breasts to a more attractive, youthful-looking position.
A breast lift is a good option for you if:
You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
You do not smoke or use nicotine products
You have realistic expectations
You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag, have lost shape and/or volume
Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
Your nipples/areolas point downward
You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
A Breast Lift usually takes two and a half to three and a half hours. You can expect to return to work in a week or more, and resume strenuous activity in one month. Scars will fade over the course of several months to a year. Consultation is complimentary. We proudly serve patients in the NJ, NY, and Tri-state area for Mastopexy/Breast Lift surgery.
