What is Breast Lift?
Over the years breasts can lose their shape and firmness due to pregnancy, nursing and loss of skin elasticity, causing them to sag. Mastopexy will raise and reshape breasts—slowing the effects of aging and gravity.
Surgeons generally perform mastopexy in conjunction with breast augmentation (implants) to increase breast firmness and size. This may appeal to women who have lost breast volume after pregnancy. Pregnancy and nursing often result in stretched skin and therefore decreased volume. If you are planning a future pregnancy, it is advisable to postpone your breast lift as pregnancy will likely cause further stretching.
As with all plastic surgery, realistic expectations and emotional stability are important. Though breasts of any size can be lifted, women with smaller breasts enjoy longer lasting results.

The Day of Breast Lift Surgery
Though not a simple operation, mastopexy is normally safe when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Beran. He usually performs breast lift under general anesthesia. We may use local anesthesia with a sedative if the incision is small; you’ll be awake but relaxed, and will feel minimal discomfort.
The surgery may take between 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours. A more common approach involves an incision along the natural contour of the breast where excess skin will be removed. The nipple and areola are then repositioned. The skin surrounding the areola is brought together to reshape the breast, with stitches around the areola and the lower breast area.
Possible Complications during Breast Lift
As with any surgery, there are possible complications. A patient may suffer an adverse reaction to the anesthesia (rare), or experience bleeding and infection following a breast lift, causing scars to widen. Poor healing and wider scars, however, are more common with breast lift newburgh patients who smoke.
For best results, follow your physician’s advice both before and after surgery.
After Breast Lift Surgery: What to Expect
After surgery, we will cover your stitches with gauze and an elastic bandage or a surgical bra will hold the breasts in place. Your breasts will be bruised, swollen, and you may experience some mild discomfort for a couple of days. Your doctor may prescribe pain medication. A soft support bra replaces the bandages or surgical bra after a few days. In the recovery stage, it is important to wear the bra at all times.
After a week or two, the stitches will be removed. Some noticeable, permanent scarring is normal, but easily covered by your bra or bathing suit. The scars may be red and lumpy for a few months, eventually fading and becoming less obvious. The procedure can also leave you with unevenly positioned nipples, or a permanent loss of feeling in your nipples or breasts.
To ensure proper healing, plan to stay at home for at least a week before returning to work. You will need to avoid lifting anything over your head for 3-4 weeks and avoid strenuous sports for a month.
FAQs about Breast Lift
The effects of a breast lift can last for several years, depending on factors like age, lifestyle, and whether you experience significant weight fluctuations or go through pregnancy. However, gravity and aging will eventually affect the lifted appearance of your breasts. Some women opt for follow-up procedures to maintain their desired look.
A breast lift works by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. This elevates the breasts and repositions the nipples to a higher, more youthful position. It’s an effective way to rejuvenate the appearance of sagging or drooping breasts, often restoring their natural contour and firmness.
The cost of a breast lift varies based on factors like the surgeon’s experience, the complexity of the procedure, and geographic location. In Newburgh, NY, prices are generally in line with national averages. Always consult a healthcare provider for a personalized estimate. For a detailed estimate tailored to your specific case consult with Dr. Rubinstein at Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists.
While a breast lift can offer long-lasting results, it’s not a permanent solution. Factors like aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can impact the longevity of the results. Some women choose to undergo additional procedures or combine a breast lift with implants for more enduring outcomes.
Like any surgical procedure, a breast lift comes with potential risks such as infection, scarring, or changes in nipple or breast sensation. However, these risks are generally low when the surgery is performed by an experienced healthcare provider.
You’ll notice an immediate change in the position of your breasts, but final results may take a few months to appear as swelling subsides and scars fade.
