Mastopexy Is Also Known As A Breast Lift
New Jersey’s Best Plastic Surgeons For Breast Lift Procedures
If you live in the New Jersey area and experience sagging, misshapen, flat, elongated, or disproportionate breasts, you’re the ideal candidate for a professional breast lift from Palisades Plastic Surgery. Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure performed to raise and reshape breasts that have become unshapely due to aging, pregnancy, weight loss, gravity, or other factors. By trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissue, patients achieve uplifted, youthful breast contours. The procedure leaves the breasts firmer and higher on the chest. The nipple and areola can also be repositioned or resized to further enhance the appearance of the breast. Mastopexy does not change the natural shape or fullness of breasts but the procedure can be combined with breast augmentation or reduction to achieve that result.
The NJ breast lift procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and takes one to three hours. Depending on your breast size and shape, our very own Dr. Rosenberg will determine what incision is appropriate for the procedure. The incision options include the opening the area around the areola and down the breast crease in a lollipop shape and creating a lollipop shape with additional incisions along the breast crease that forms an anchor shape which is ideal for significant sagging. A portion of excess skin will then be removed to tighten and reposition the breast. The nipple and areola may also be moved higher or resized. The incisions are then stitched closed and tend to heal well.
Once you’re procedure is completed, you will likely be required to wear an elastic wrap or bandage for about a week followed by a support bra that is continuously worn for a month. You may experience bruising, soreness, and swelling for a few days. In just a week, you will be able to return to work but must avoid strenuous activity for about a month. The results of the breast lift are visible immediately after surgery and will continue to improve after swelling subsides and any scars fade.
