Breast Lift

A procedure that repositions breasts to a higher, more youthful position on the chest is known as a breast liftNew York City surgeons Drs. Vickery and Keegan can guarantee the very best care and attention to detail for all of their patients undergoing the surgery. In this surgery, skin is removed from around the areola, and possibly from the bottom of the breast. The remaining skin is then tightened, and the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position. The procedure helps to create a better-proportioned body, enhancing the patient’s appearance and potentially elevating her self-image.

Ideal candidates for a breast lift generally have one or more of the following conditions:

  • breasts that are pendulous, but of satisfactory size
  • breasts that lack substance or firmness
  • nipples and areolas that point downward, especially if they are positioned below the breast crease

A breast lift can also be performed in conjunction with breast enlargement or reduction procedures, or as part of a postpartum mommy makeover.

Depending on the technique used, most cases take about one to three hours to complete for a breast liftNew York City Drs. Keegan and Vickery can generally perform a breast lift surgery on an outpatient basis, and most patients are able to return home on the day of the surgery.
