    What Is a Breast Lift?

    Mastopexy, more commonly known as breast lift surgery, corrects sagging breasts, usually the result of aging, pregnancy and other naturally occurring irregularities. Breast lift surgery gives your breasts a more youthful, perky appearance. Naturally, you want the best breast lift surgeon when considering a breast lift in Manhattan, one who can deliver results that include:

    • Giving your breasts a symmetrical and identical look
    • Creating a more rounded appearance
    • Providing better support to your nipples and areolas by tightening your breast tissue
    • Correcting areolas and nipples that face downward
    • Adjusting nipples that point in different directions

    Your breasts become fuller and rounder with a more aesthetic breast shape. Dr. David Shokrian at Millennial Plastic Surgery in Midtown Manhattan offers several different approaches to achieve the desired effect and meet your personal appearance goals.

    Why Would I Want a Breast Lift?

    Everyone has different reasons for wanting to undergo specific aesthetic procedures. You don’t have to justify your desire for perkier breasts to anyone — and you don’t have to change the way you look for anyone but yourself. Dr. Shokrian respects your decision-making abilities. Some of the common reasons you may want a NYC breast lift include:

    • Restoring your figure after you’re finished having babies
    • Desiring a more youthful appearance as you age
    • Looking better in the latest fashions
    • Landing a role in the entertainment industry

    In your initial consultation, the best breast lift surgeon also queries you about what you find most bothersome about your breasts so he knows how best to proceed to help you reach your goals. Clearly voice your desires to make the most of your time with the best breast lift doctor in New York City. Typically bothersome aspects of breasts often include:

    • Awkward facing nipples and areola
    • Loose, flabby skin
    • Sagging
    • Large, stretched areolas
    • Loss of volume, leading to flatter, elongated breasts

    What Can I Expect from a Breast Lift?

    A New York City breast lift can reset the clock with immediate results. Aging, gravity, weight loss and pregnancy sometimes lead to a poor body image. A breast lift is an ideal choice for correcting those imperfections that you can’t really address any other way, except with uncomfortable bras that have underwires. Having a breast lift gives you a boost of self-confidence by providing you with:

    • More youthful proportions
    • More comfortably fitting bras and clothing
    • A new upright position with a fuller, rounder breast profile
    • Firmer, perkier breasts

    During your initial consultation, it’s a good time to also discuss combining your breast lift with another procedure that might fully rejuvenate your outlook and overall silhouette. Consider, for example, adding procedures such as:

    How Is a Mastopexy Done?

    A breast lift is an outpatient procedure that allows you to return home the same day with your firmer, fuller, more contoured figure. A mastopexy elevates and shapes your breasts through a series of incisions, specialized techniques and applications for:

    • Removing excess skin
    • Reshaping breast tissue
    • Tightening remaining skin
    • Reducing the size of large areolas
    • Moving areolas to face forward
    • Repositioning unbalanced nipples

    Three different techniques are available to give you the maximum results for your desired outcome. Each one is specific for its lift and the amount of correction it provides. Your experienced cosmetic surgeon makes recommendations and discusses with you the pros and cons of each. The different kinds of breast lifts available include a:

    1. Traditional or anchor breast lift. This procedure is optimal if you have moderate to severe sagging and want the maximum lift.
    2. A vertical or lollipop breast lift. This is best when you have mild to moderate sagging.
    3. A circumareolar, a periareolar or donut lift. This is ideal if you have minimal sagging and just require a single incision around the areola that blends with the skin's natural texture.

    Standard procedures for any of the techniques discussed with your surgeon include:

    1. Incisions made according to the recommended method and chosen process for your breast lift
    2. The breast tissue lifted and reshaped for improved firmness and contouring
    3. Nipples and areola repositioned to a more youthful and natural height
    4. Excess skin removed to compensate for the loss of elasticity
    5. Remaining skin tightened while the incisions are closed

    Your stitches might be placed deep within the breast to help reshape the breast tissue. Incisions are closed with stitches, surgical tape or skin adhesives. Expect breast lift procedures to take about two to three hours to complete. Typically, you return home the same day as the procedure with clear instructions for caring for your breasts.

    What Is a Vampire Breast Lift?

    A vampire breast lift uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve the look of your breasts and give them a fuller, rounder shape. A vampire breast lift offers a different approach to enhancing your breasts. It’s ideal if your breasts are not yet ready for a breast lift, but would benefit from enhancement. The benefits include:

    • Increasing elastin
    • Promoting collagen growth
    • Stimulating new growth cells

    Designed to improve the appearance of your breast tissue, a vampire breast lift also:

    • Makes your breasts look fuller
    • Improves the texture of your breasts
    • Reduces scars, stretch marks and wrinkles
    • Leaves you with less pain and no downtime

    For your vampire breast lift in New York, platelet-rich plasma is injected into your breasts with thin needles. PRP comes from your own blood. It contains proteins that foster blood clotting and assist with cell growth. Your blood contains white blood cells, red blood cells and PRP. During your procedure:

    1. Your surgeon takes a blood sample.
    2. The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of your blood.
    3. Numbing cream is applied to your breasts to decrease sensitivity during the procedure.
    4. PRP then is injected throughout your breasts with thin needles.
    5. Injections usually take about 20 minutes, and the procedure lasts about an hour or less.

    What Can I Expect after My Breast Lift?

    The team at Millennial Plastic Surgery dresses you in a gauze dressing and a surgical support bra to cover your breasts while small tubes are placed at the incision sites for normal drainage. You’re given instructions on wound care.

    Tubes are typically removed after a few days, and your bandages are changed. Some stitches may dissolve independently, while others are removed by your doctor during your follow-up visit one to two weeks after the procedure. After a breast lift:

    • Most typical side effects diminish in the first few weeks.
    • If non-dissolvable stitches or surgical drains are used, removal occurs three to seven days after surgery.
    • Plan for a week of downtime.
    • Avoid strenuous activities for about four weeks.
    • Your breasts may feel swollen and bruised for about two weeks.
    • Numbness in your nipples and breast skin is normal and may last up to six weeks.
    • Avoid excess upper body movement and chest pressure for a more prompt and comfortable recovery.
    • Avoid sleeping on your stomach for about four weeks to keep pressure off your chest.

    At first, your incision scars may appear pink and lumpy. This is normal before they fade into thin white lines with time. While healing, it’s best to protect your incisions from exposure to the sun. Bras and bathing suits usually cover any scarring after a breast lift. Your NYC breast lift results finalize after a few months, once the swelling subsides.


    Their attention to detail is unmatched. Highly recommend!

    How Long Will My Breast Lift Last?

    Many enjoy lifelong results from their surgery. Of course, you want to do everything you can to protect your new figure by maintaining practices that encourage long-lasting results such as:

    • Living a healthy lifestyle
    • Avoiding smoking
    • Maintaining a stable weight with a healthy diet and proper exercise

    Your breast lift procedure counteracts the effects of pregnancy and aging, along with other correctable irregularities. After years of enjoying your breast lift, you may require a touch-up. The aging process doesn’t stop and so, if you hope to retain your youthful figure, you may need a slight revision down the line.
