A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is often the best option to improve the positioning of your breasts to reduce sagging. Over time, skin loses its natural elasticity. In combination with the effects of gravity and bodily changes such as pregnancy, nursing, weight gain, and weight loss, breasts will begin to sag, losing their youthful shape and firmness. If you are unhappy or uncomfortable with sagging, deflated-looking breasts, you may want to consider a cosmetic procedure to lift and reshape their appearance. Dr. Giese offers many cosmetic breast procedures, including a breast lift, at her NYC office to turn back the clock.
Breast lift is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Dr. Giese performs a special “internal bra” technique during this procedure, re-arranging the breast tissue under the skin to self-support the breasts, thereby requiring little to no brassiere support following surgery. You are encouraged to speak to Dr. Giese during a personal consultation to discuss the many options that are available and how a breast lift at our NYC office can benefit your condition.
Depending on each individual case and your desired results, three incision options are available to achieve enhanced lift and more youthful curves during the breast lift. These incisions are largely dependent upon the severity of your condition:
Dr. Giese will discuss which breast lift technique can achieve the best results for you.
