Weight loss, pregnancy, your genetics, age, breastfeeding— these are all things to be proud of, but they are also things that can wreak havoc on your breasts and can cause them to lose their shape and firmness. With a breast surgery, however, we can help you gain back your appearance and self-confidence. Let’s take a closer look at how.
A Breast Lift
When it comes to breast surgeries, Dr. George Philip Smith does more than just breast augmentations. He also does surgeries like breast lifts. A breast lift is a surgical procedure designed to lift and reshape your breasts to improve their contour and firmness. Additionally, he will also reposition the nipple and areola so that they are at a more youthful height than they were before.
One thing that we like to be extremely transparent about is what a breast lift won’t do. A breast lift won’t change the size of your breasts— make them larger or smaller. If you are looking for breasts that look fuller or smaller, we can usually perform a breast augmentation or reduction surgery at the same time as your breast lift.
Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?
Just like with every surgery, a breast lift may not be right for you. We recommend that patients consider getting a breast lift if:
- You don’t smoke
- You have realistic expectations
- Your nipples fall below the breast crease when unsupported
- Your breasts are elongated, flat, or pendulous
- You feel like your breast sag
- You are physically healthy
- You maintain a stable weight
- One breast is lower than the other
- Your skin is stretched
- You have enlarged areolas
During your initial consultation with Dr. George Philip Smith, he will perform a brief physical evaluation and go over all of your surgical and nonsurgical options. If you want to learn more about breast lift surgery or to schedule a consultation, call our office at (718) 608-1111.
