Breast Lift in Manhattan
Breast lift (mastopexy) is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in Dr Choi’s practice, and one of our most popular services. Breast lift can give women with droopy breasts a lifted, firmer, better-proportioned look.
Our patients elect to undergo breast lift for many different medical and aesthetic reasons, including balancing breast size, compensating for reduced breast mass after pregnancy or surgery, and correcting a congenital breast defect. Under Dr. Choi’s expert care, patients enjoy great-looking breasts that are more youthful and lifted.
Complementary Breast Procedures
Breast lift can achieve dramatic and beautiful results on its own as well as in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery or non-invasive procedures. We sometimes recommend combining breast lift with other procedures such as a breast augmentation for more satisfying results.
Breast Lift Incision Techniques
The breast lift performed by Dr Choi lasts one to two hours and is typically performed with general anesthesia. Dr Choi may recommend an incision just around the border of your areola, lollipop technique or inverted T technique depends on your breast shape.
After the incisions are closed, then taped, and sterile bandages placed. A surgical bra is used for support.
Recovery from Breast Lift Procedure
Most patients feel tired and sore after breast augmentation surgery, but this usually passes in a day or two. Many patients return to work within the week.
Sutures are usually absorbable. Any post-operative pain, swelling and sensitivity will diminish over the first few weeks.
Scars from breast lift incisions will begin to fade in a few months and will continue to fade for months or years.
