Time is an aging factor that is not unavoidable. Gravity, a reduction in collagen production, and natural damage to the skin are some of the reasons why time is so powerful when it comes to aging. Thus, this is what leads the breasts to sag over time. This is a condition known as breast ptosis and it is often accelerated by other factors like pregnancy and genetics. The procedure to correct this sagging is a breast lift. Dr. Blyer and Cameo Surgery Center provide the best breast lift Long Island, NY.
The Run Down On Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift procedure is essentially a skin removal surgery. Also, it often will reposition the nipple and areola to a higher point on the breasts. The goal is to create perkier breasts and to correct nipples that sit below the breast crease or which point downward. The surgical used for this will depend on the degree of ptosis a patient presents with.
There are three basic grades of breast ptosis:
The nipple and areola sit beneath the level of the inframammary fold at or less than one centimeter, but they still point forward.
The nipples sit between one and three centimeters below the fold and point downward.
The nipple position is more than three centimeters below the inframammary fold and the nipples point downward.
In addition to the three grades above, there is also pseudoptosis where the breast does not sag traditionally. The nipple will likely remain in the ideal position, but the breast tissue sags over the inframammary fold. This type of breast sagging does not always require mastopexy surgery.
When performed on a good candidate, breast lift surgery offers several possible benefits. Some of which can include:
- Corrects breast sagging
- Restores breast perkiness
- Creates a firmer breast appearance and feel
- Enhance the shape of the breasts to appear rounder and fuller
- Removes extra breast skin
- Corrects breast volume loss/sagging due to weight loss, pregnancy, aging, genetics, and smoking
- Easily accommodates the placement of breast implants
- More youthful body contours
- Increased confidence and self-esteem
- Reduce chafing and rashes under the breasts
- Can reduce the size of the areolas if necessary/desired
- Effective surgery that provides long lasting results
- Low risk for ideal candidates
- Focuses on removing only excess skin and leaves breast tissue intact
- Can combine as part of a mommy makeover
- Performed by one of Long Island’s most experienced cosmetic breast surgeons
Breast Lift Techniques
Dr. B can perform a breast lift in a variety of ways. The surgical technique is typically determined based on the grade of breast ptosis, other performed procedures, and what is necessary for a good result. Below are the breast lift options Dr. B offers at Cameo Surgery Center.
The anchor incision breast lift is the traditional method. First, it involves an incision that encircles the areola, the incision then continues vertically down the breasts and then spreads out across the breast crease. This makes the shape of an anchor and it is also sometimes called a fleur-de-lis breast lift.
While it does involve extensive incisions, this is the most effective method for correcting breast sagging of any grade. Though, it is the only surgical technique for the highest grade of ptosis. Additionally, the incisions can be thin and hidden underneath a bra. Still, it is understandable that patients may be hesitant about this technique because of scars on the breasts.
The lollipop breast lift technique utilizes the first two parts of the anchor incision: the areola and vertical incisions. Thus, this forms the shape of a lollipop. For patients with less extensive sagging, the lollipop may adequately lift the breasts. Otherwise, a lollipop breast lift works in exactly the same way as a traditional mastopexy surgery.
A donut breast lift only involves an incision around the areolas. This is only utilized in specific circumstances of mild sagging or pseudoptosis where only the areola and nipples need repositioning or the sagging can be adequately addressed by removing skin from the center of the breasts and pulling it tight.
For this uncommon breast lift technique, Dr. B makes an incision in the armpit and within the inframammary fold. This keeps scars away from the breasts and in places naturally concealed by anatomy. Dr. B is one of the only surgeons in the United States trained in this technique. Patients who are candidates will have mild or moderate sagging and may be fearful of traditional mastopexy incisions.

Breast lift results are expected to last between ten and fifteen years on average. Unfortunately, the factors that cause the breasts to sag cannot fully be avoided. Thus, over time the breasts may begin to sag again. However, breast lift results overall are long lasting and patients can expect to enjoy them for several years.
Sometimes patients may lose about a cup size during a breast lift. However, it is not a breast reduction and is not meant to make the breasts smaller. When the breasts carry excess skin, this can sometimes require a larger bra size to adequately lift the breasts and hold the extra skin. Patients with mild sagging may not experience any significant change in breast size.
Patients concerned about their breast size may consider a breast augmentation. This can be done at the same time as a mastopexy. Breast lift incisions easily accommodate the placement of breast implants. Therefore, no additional incisions are necessary.
During surgery, patients are placed under general anesthesia. After surgery, this helps reduce the pain initially. Dr. B will prescribe pain medication to help patients manage their recovery. Many patients are surprised that the recovery and pain are less than they expected.
Tenderness and nipple numbness or sensitivity is normal for several weeks. Patients generally discontinue pain medications within one week. Overall, patients do not find the pain unbearable.
