Breast Lift

Home | Breast | Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery can restore a more youthful and perky appearance to your breasts and improve their overall shape and symmetry. Dr. Frank Lalezar offers a personalized breast lift procedure in NYC to make your breasts look firmer and more youthful, thus reversing the signs of aging, genetics, weight loss, and childbirth on your breasts.

Restore Youthful Firmness & Perkiness

Breast lift and breast augmentation are separate procedures, each with unique goals. Breast lift surgery is designed to lift and firm the breasts, while breast augmentation is designed to increase breast size and volume. However, you can combine the two procedures to achieve a lift and an increase in size — breast lift with augmentation. Dr. Lalezar will discuss your goals and examine your breasts to determine if you need a breast lift with augmentation.

The Goals of Breast Lift:

  • Lifting sagging or drooping breasts
  • Making the breasts look and feel firmer and more youthful
  • Improving the shape, size, and symmetry of the breasts
  • Correcting the downward-facing appearance of the nipples
  • Making the breasts and nipples look more youthful

Your Recovery Journey

After your breast lift procedure in NYC, you will need to rest and allow the incisions to heal. You will experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days after the procedure. During the first week of recovery, you should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting. You must also avoid exposing the incisions to water, such as by taking a shower or bath, until the surgeon gives permission. Dr. Lalezar will provide specific aftercare instructions, including taking prescribed pain medication and wearing a supportive bra.

Most patients can return to work and other activities within a week, but it may take several weeks for the swelling to subside and for the incisions to heal. While recovery can vary from patient to patient, most people must avoid strenuous activities for 6 to 8 weeks. You must be patient and give your body time to heal. Any discomfort or side effects should improve over time, and the final results should become apparent within a few months.

Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation

Breast lift and breast augmentation are two separate procedures, each with their own unique goals. Our breast lift procedure in NYC is designed to lift and firm the breasts, while breast augmentation is designed to increase breast size and volume. However, you can combine the two procedures to achieve a lift and an increase in size — breast lift with augmentation. Dr. Lalezar will discuss your goals and examine your breasts to determine if you need a breast lift with augmentation.

Dr. Lalezar’s Surgical Technique

Dr. Lalezar performs personalized breast lift surgery based on your unique needs and goals. He makes incisions around the areolas, down the breasts, and/or in the creases under the breasts, depending on the amount of lift needed. The incisions are hidden in the natural contours of the breasts, so they remain well-concealed. After making incisions, he removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin to lift the breasts. He may also reposition the nipples and areolas to a more youthful position.

How long does a breast lift last?

The longevity of a breast lift depends on factors like genetics, aging, and lifestyle. While results are long-lasting, natural changes in breast tissue over time may alter appearance. Maintaining a stable weight and following post-operative instructions can help prolong the effects.

What’s included in a breast lift?

A breast lift addresses sagging by removing excess skin, reshaping breast tissue, and repositioning the nipples. Incisions are strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. The procedure can also enhance breast symmetry and shape, restoring a more perky appearance.

Does breast lift affect cup size?

Breast lift surgery doesn’t significantly change breast volume or cup size. However, it can create a more lifted breast contour. Combining a breast lift with augmentation can increase size while addressing sagging.

Can a breast lift fix saggy breasts?

Yes, a breast lift is specifically designed to address sagging or drooping breasts caused by aging, weight loss, or pregnancy. By removing excess skin and reshaping breast tissue, a breast lift can restore a firmer, more youthful appearance and correct nipple positioning.

Should I get a breast lift with implants?

The decision to combine a breast lift with implants depends on individual goals. While a breast lift addresses sagging, implants increase volume and size. Dr. Lalezar evaluates each patient’s anatomy and desired outcome to determine if combined surgery is appropriate.

Do breast lifts look natural?

When performed by a skilled surgeon like Dr. Lalezar, breast lifts can produce natural-looking results. Dr. Lalezar’s careful planning, precise incision placement, and attention to detail support symmetrical, proportionate outcomes. Our patients often report feeling more confident with their rejuvenated yet natural-looking breasts.

Is a breast lift worth it?

For many patients, a breast lift can be a life-changing procedure because it can restore confidence and improve body image. The physical and emotional benefits of achieving a firmer, more youthful breast contour often outweigh the investment. However, whether a breast lift is worth it to you depends on your specific goals.

How do I know if I need a breast lift?

You may consider a breast lift if you’re bothered by sagging or drooping breasts, loss of breast volume, or asymmetry. Factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can contribute to breast ptosis, which can be reversed with a breast lift. Dr. Lalezar evaluates your concerns and medical history to determine if a breast lift is suitable for you.
