A woman’s breasts will not retain their shape and position forever. When aging and other factors begin to get the best of your breasts, a breast lift can help rejuvenate them for a more youthful shape and position.
Is A Breast Lift Right For You?
There are several factors that can cause your breasts to change over time. A loss of skin elasticity can lead to the loss of shape or firmness as the breasts begin to droop or sag. This can be due to:
- Pregnancy and/or breastfeeding
- Significant weight loss
- Aging and gravity
A breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding breast tissue to achieve a youthful appearance of the breasts. Women also have the option to supplement their breast lift surgery with breast implants to restore volume to breasts that also appear flat or deflated.
Enlarged areolas or downward pointing nipples can also be improved with breast lift surgery by elevating the breasts to a youthful profile.
While a breast lift in the Hudson Valley and New York area will not affect your ability to become pregnant in the future, it is recommended to wait for surgery until you are finished having children. This will avoid any changes to the results of your breast lift.
Your Breast Lift Procedure With Dr. Fugo
For your surgery, New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Fugo will place you under general anesthesia. To begin your procedure, Dr. Fugo will make an incision based on your situation and what was discussed during your consultation. These possible incisions are:
- Around the areola
- Around the areola and downward from the center
From the incision, the underlying tissue can be lifted and tightened to improve your breast contours. The nipple and areola can also be repositioned at this point if needed. Any excess skin is then removed and incisions are closed.
What To Expect After Your Breast Lift in NY
Once your surgery is complete, Dr. Fugo will apply any necessary bandages or surgical dressings to your incisions. A special elastic bandage or support bra should be worn throughout the recovery process to ensure proper healing and to minimize swelling of the breasts. Scarring will continue to fade over time and can be easily concealed beneath a bikini or lingerie. In order to best maintain the results of your breast lift, it is important to stick to a healthy lifestyle.
