Breast Lift On Long Island
Helping you achieve firmer, more youthful breasts
Many factors can influence the shape of your breasts. Weight gain, pregnancy
and breastfeeding, the natural aging process, and the simple forces of
gravity all take their toll on the elasticity and firmness of breast tissue.
Over time, breasts start to sag, leaving many women longing for the days
of their youth. Fortunately, Island Plastic Surgery offers an effective
breast lift procedure that can tighten and lift the skin of the breasts
without having to resort to the use of implants. A breast lift, or mastopexy,
won’t significantly change the size of your breasts, but can be
performed on its own or in conjunction with a breast augmentation or breast
reduction to help you achieve the firm, youthful breasts you have always wanted.

Contact Island Plastic Surgery today for a consultation.
You may be a candidate for a breast lift if:
- Your breasts have fully developed
- You are at a stable weight
- You are not pregnant or planning to become pregnant in the near future
- You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
- One breast is lower than the others
- Your nipples and areolas point downward
- You are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts
- You have sagging breasts that are loose and lack substance
At Island Plastic Surgery, we are happy to help you restore the appearance
of your breasts. During your initial consultation, we will sit down with
you and obtain a full understanding of your goals, especially if you have
other breast improvements in mind. Our surgeons will carefully evaluate
your breasts to determine if a breast lift is right for you.
What to Expect
After medications are administered to ensure your comfort, the surgeon
will make several incisions. The underlying breast tissue will be lifted
and reshaped, the nipple and areola repositioned, and the excess breast
skin removed. Then, the incisions will be closed and a surgical dressing
will be applied. Breast lifts usually take 1-2 hours and you will most
likely return home the same day.
Recovering from Surgery
After surgery, breasts will be swollen and bruised for about 2 weeks, and
you will likely feel pain and soreness around the incisions. Although
you will need to wear a support bra to aid with recovery, you will be
able to move around normally. Most sutures do not need to be removed.
You should be able to return to work in 3-4 days and can start exercising
again in 3-4 weeks. Avoid actions that involve lifting, straining, or
strenuous exercise until the breasts have completely healed.
Breast Lift Results
Breast lift surgery produces immediate results! The final shape and position
of your breasts will be revealed as the swelling recedes and the incision
lines fade. Results are long-lasting, but you can retain your look longer
if you maintain your weight and keep a healthy lifestyle.
