Is Breast Lift (NYC) New York City Right for Me?
Mastopexy, or breast lift, is popular among women who desire to:
- Reverse breast changes of pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss, often as part of a mommy makeover
- Reduce breast sagging and drooping
- Correct breast asmmetry
- Reduce areolar size
While breast augmentation (breast implants) remains the most common cosmetic surgery in the United States, mastopexy is actually growing more than breast augmentation, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Breast lifts have grown at a rate of 108% since 2000, more than twice the rate of growth of breast augmentation. They are popular in part because of their ability to change the breast shape without the need for a breast implant.
During your consultation with Dr. Schulman, he will examine your body, noting your breast shape, degree of sagging or drooping, nipple location, quality of breast tissue and skin. These are all factors in determining which breast procedure is best for you. Dr. Schulman will develop a personalized treatment plan that takes into account both your body and your desired appearance.
Breast Lift in New York city does not significantly alter the size of your breasts. For women who want their breasts to appear larger, having a breast lift with augmentation may be necessary.
Conversely, some women want less breast tissue, so they may combine breast reduction with lift.
While a mastopexy is likely to have long-lasting effects for most women, it’s unlikely the results will last forever. Some amount of sagging in the breasts is an unavoidable result of the normal aging process. It’s especially important for women who have large breasts who choose to have a breast lift. It’s very likely that large-breasted women will experience sagging in the future because their breasts are simply heavier than women with smaller breasts.
Also, consider your life plans. If you intend to have children in the future, it may be best to delay your surgery since pregnancy and breastfeeding can undo the results. Additionally, a small number of women who have surgery may have difficulty breastfeeding after their surgery.
Your weight and fitness journey also plays a role. The ideal patient is one who has maintained their current weight for an extended period and is at or near their ideal weight. Fluctuations in weight, up or down, can cause the breasts to change.
