Breast Lift (Mastopexy) in Manhattan, NYC & Long Island
Your natural anatomy and pregnancy may cause your breasts to hang low on the chest. A bra may help the situation, but you deserve to feel good about your body in any type of clothing. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Craig Baldenhofer, MD, offers breast lift surgery to reposition your breasts higher on the chest. The surgery has helped women like you in Manhattan, New York City and Long Island.
What is a Breast Lift?
Mastopexy is a plastic surgery procedure that lifts the breasts so they appear perky and higher on the chest. Sagging breasts on a woman does not necessarily mean that she is out of shape. The skin on the breast may stretch during pregnancy, or you may have a greater volume of tissue in the lower portion of the breast. Although mastopexy is not intended to enlarge the breasts, removing excess skin often gives the breasts a fuller appearance.
What are the Benefits of Mastopexy?
Mastopexy is an excellent option for women who have drooping breasts, yet do not want a full boob job with implants. Breast lifts can be combined with breast augmentation, though.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?
One of the best ways to determine if you have sagging breasts is to place a pencil in the breast crease. If the pencil does not fall away, you may be a good candidate for a breast lift. You can get an indication of what your breasts will look like after mastopexy surgery by lifting your arms over your head. Although this does not give you an idea of the exact result of the surgery, it gives you an idea of how the surgery improves breast position.
What Should I Expect from Mastopexy?
By removing excess skin from the natural breasts, Dr. Baldenhofer achieves a lifted appearance. The procedure is performed in our certified in-house surgical suite, so you should not need to be in the hospital.
You will need to rest for a few days and avoid excessive exercise and intense activities for a few weeks. Your breasts will be swollen for three to six months after your mastopexy.
How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost in Manhattan?
The cost of mastopexy varies by patient, so we prefer to provide this information after your consultation. We advise our patients that breast lifts are not covered by medical insurance, so you will need to pay the entire cost by cash, check, credit card or CareCredit® financing.
Sagging breasts can be hidden by your bra and clothing, but you should feel confident about your appearance every moment. If you have naturally drooping breasts, or if your breasts have stretched due to pregnancy and aging, we recommend that you learn more about breast lift surgery.
