Introducing breast lift, a transformative procedure for women seeking to enhance their breast shape and restore youthful contours. Dr. Karan Mehta, our renowned board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan, provides expert care for patients aiming to lift sagging breasts, achieve improved symmetry, and regain confidence in their appearance.

Elevate Your Breasts & Restore Youthful Contours

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to lift and reshape sagging breasts, giving them a youthful appearance. Over time, factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and aging can cause breasts to lose firmness and sag. By removing excess skin and repositioning the breast tissue, a breast lift can restore a more youthful shape, enhancing both the appearance and self-confidence of women.

Breast Lift Corrects:

  • Sagging or drooping breasts
  • Loss of breast volume
  • Nipple and areola that point downward
  • Uneven or asymmetrical breasts
  • Excess skin or stretched areolas
  • Lack of breast firmness or perkiness

Breast Lift Surgical Details

Your breast lift with Dr. Mehta is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure comfort. During the surgery, Dr. Mehta will make incisions in a pattern that suits your specific case, considering your breast size, degree of sagging, and desired outcome. Common incision styles include the anchor incision, lollipop incision, or donut technique.

Once the incisions are made, Dr. Mehta will reposition the nipple and areola to a higher, more youthful position. Excess skin will be removed, and the breast tissue will be lifted and reshaped to achieve a more desirable contour.

In some cases, he may also recommend combining a breast lift with breast augmentation or reduction for enhanced results.

Dr. Mehta’s expertise ensures minimal scarring, as he utilizes advanced suturing techniques and places incisions in discreet locations. The surgical details will be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring a safe procedure that delivers beautiful and natural-looking results.

Candidates for Breast Lift:

  • Women who experience sagging or drooping breasts
  • Women with uneven or asymmetrical breasts
  • Individuals who desire to achieve a more youthful and lifted breast appearance
  • Women who have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure
  • Non-smokers or those willing to quit smoking before and after surgery
  • Individuals who are in good overall health
  • Individual who have no underlying conditions that may increase the risks of surgery
  • Those who have stable body weight, as weight fluctuations can affect the results
  • Women who have completed their pregnancies and do not plan to have more children
  • Individuals who are mentally and emotionally prepared for the surgical and recovery process

The Recovery Process

You can expect temporary discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication and by following post-operative instructions. Dr. Mehta will provide specific guidelines tailored to your needs, including instructions on wearing a supportive bra, avoiding strenuous activities, and taking time off work. It is crucial to adhere to these guidelines to promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.

During the initial weeks, you may experience some limitations in arm movements and discomfort. However, as time passes, these effects will gradually subside. Dr. Mehta will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns or questions you may have. While you can resume normal daily activities within a few weeks, it may take several months for your breasts to fully settle into their new position.
