What is a Breast Lift?

A Breast Lift, scientifically known as Mastopexy, stands as a refined cosmetic surgical technique. Its purpose is to elevate and restore the contours of breasts that have gracefully evolved over time, adapting to the rhythms of life, including age, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight changes, and genetics. This procedure begins a new chapter of youthful uplift and harmonious form, redefining beauty with precision.

What are the Benefits of Breast Lift?

Our New York City Breast Lift patients have discovered the following benefits from their surgery:

  • Natural nipple projection
  • Youthful breast appearance
  • Reduced discomfort
  • Reduced irritation under the breasts
  • Better mobility for a more active lifestyle
  • Improves sagging breasts
  • Increased confidence
  • Long-lasting results
  • More attractive breast shape

Who are the Best Candidates for Breast Lift procedure?

At KH Plastic Surgery, we feel that ideal Breast Lift surgery candidates have lost their natural shape and firmness but have adequate breast tissue for tissue redraping. Additional characteristics of our patients include:

  • Astable and healthy weight
  • In good overall health
  • At a stable and healthy weight
  • Have good skin laxity
  • Maintain a positive attitude and realistic expectations
  • Non Smoker

Dr. Hoschander and the KH Plastic Surgery team work closely with each candidate to determine their candidacy based on these factors, ensuring that the procedure aligns with their goals and expectations for a beautifully rejuvenated outcome.

Types of Breast Lift

Dr. Ari Hoschander at KH Plastic Surgery employs a variety of surgical techniques for Breast Lift procedures, ensuring personalized solutions that align with your unique needs and desired outcomes. Following your consultation, Dr. Hoschander will thoughtfully discuss and recommend the most suitable approach for your individual case.

  • Anchor Lift: The anchor lift technique involves a circular incision around the areola, extending vertically downward along the lower breast crease, and horizontally across the natural breast fold. This approach is chosen for cases requiring significant lifting and reshaping.
  • Crescent Incision: Using the crescent lift technique, Dr. Hoschander creates an arch-shaped incision along the upper portion of the areola. Excess skin is removed, and for patients considering breast augmentation, implants may be inserted.
  • Donut Incision: Referred to as a peri-areolar lift, the donut lift entails a circular incision encircling the entire areola. This technique can also reduce the size of the areola. While typically employed for mild sagging, Dr. Hoschander’s expertise extends to performing this technique effectively on individuals with more substantial sagging.
  • Lollipop Incision: The lollipop lift involves two incisions – a vertical one along the chest wall and another encircling the areola, resembling a lollipop’s shape. This technique addresses moderate sagging and suits individuals seeking a moderate lift.
  • Breast Lift with Breast Implants: For those desiring enhanced perkiness and increased breast volume, a combined breast lift and augmentation may be considered. Dr. Hoschander usually places an implant through an incision at the breast fold, positioning it beneath the tissue or deeper under the chest muscle. If this combination interests you, it can be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Hoschander at KH Plastic Surgery.

What’s the First Step?

The step towards achieving your desired Breast Lift with Dr. Ari Hoschander at KH Plastic Surgery begins with a personalized and comprehensive consultation. During this initial step, you will have the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals, concerns, and expectations with Dr. Hoschander.

Dr. Hoschander will conduct a thorough examination of your breast anatomy, skin quality, and overall health to determine your candidacy for the procedure. This consultation serves as a platform for open communication, allowing you to ask questions and address any doubts you may have about the breast lift procedure.

Dr. Hoschander will explain the surgical process, potential outcomes, and recovery timeline, ensuring that you are well-informed and confident in your decision. The consultation sets the foundation for a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and aspirations, ensuring that your journey toward a rejuvenated, uplifted appearance is seamless and satisfying. When scheduling you for surgery, your surgeon may ask you to:

  • Quit smoking from at least four weeks before surgery until two weeks after surgery, as smoking impedes the process of healing
  • Arrange for transportation, since after the surgery, you will not be able to drive home yourself
  • Bring comfortable clothing with you on the day of surgery

Additionally, your surgeon may want to know about:

  • Any energy supplements, multivitamins, or prescription drugs you’ve been taking
  • Any medical treatments you’ve received recently
  • Medical conditions, allergies, and treatments you’ve had
