One of the more common concerns regarding a woman’s appearance is related to her breasts. As women age, the effects of gravity on their breasts start to take a noticeable toll, creating sagging. This aesthetic issue can be compounded by the dramatic changes brought about by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Women are left feeling very aware of these breast changes and often feel less confident about their overall look. A breast lift is a surgical procedure designed to restore perkiness and reduce sagging of the breasts.
In addition to the increased fullness a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, can reposition nipples that are lower than desired and reduce the size of the areolae which frequently enlarges as the skin stretches.
Breast lift procedures use a variety of techniques. As one of the most experienced breast surgeons in the New York, Long Island and Westchester areas, Dr. Newman uses every available technique. The most common techniques include incisions from the outside that may include a vertical scar or a scar under the breast. In most cases today Dr. Newman will reshape the shape of the internal breast tissue itself giving a result that’s fuller and longer lasting than older techniques. In some cases only an incision around the areola is needed.
Using a technique known as the “Auto Implant,” Dr. Newman is able to significantly reshape and lift the breast from inside. This technique is ideal for candidates who are not interested in implants but want more fullness and breast projection.
With the Auto Implant procedure, Dr. Newman recruits breast tissue near the bottom portion of the breast and repositions it under the breast it in a way improve projection and perkiness while also rounding out the upper portion of breast.
Today is a week since my surgery and I just saw Dr. Newman for my second post-op visit. I am so thrilled. First of all his staff is wonderful. I am amazed at how I feel now only one week later. Dr. Newman told me that I'd be OK to return to work this past Monday only 3 days after surgery. Honestly, I didn't believe him but as it turned out he was correct. I returned on Tuesday after surgery last Friday. At this point I have almost no pain and I only have a small bruise on my left side. My result is amazing and exactly what I told him I wanted. I heard from other people how good he is and, to be honest, I'm amazed at how easy this was. Go Dr. N!!!JessieRK
Aside from the Auto Implant procedure, Dr. Newman offers nearly every available surgical option when it comes to a breast lift. In certain situations, he can even implement a technique that leaves no visible scarring on the breast. Sometimes a small breast implant can be used in addition to a breast lift procedure to enhance the results significantly and reduce scars.
Other types of breast lift are the Crescent Lift (more of a nipple lift with an incision around the top half of the areola), the Vertical Lift (similar to the Inverted-T but without the incision under the breast), and the Horizontal Lift (a variation of the Inverted-T Lift but without the vertical incision).
Choosing the best breast lift technique will depend on the several factors, such as the severity of the sagging, the patient’s desired results, and the preferences of Dr. Newman. These options will be discussed in great detail during the initial consultation. From there, the doctor can get a better understanding of the patient’s cosmetic goals while also assessing the severity of the issue.

Am I A Breast Lift Candidate? (Choose one below)
Most patients who feel their breasts are too large also feel their shape is droopy, saggy or 'ptotic'. For this reason, when a breast reduction is performed to reduce the breast size, it is common to lift the breasts at the same time.
Many patients fall into this category after losing weight or having children. With weight-loss or childbirth the breasts usually go from larger to smaller yet the skin stays stretched. Some patients in this category desire an increase in breast size, while others are happy with their size and just want their shape improved.
It is normal for breasts to be somewhat uneven, but in many cases the breasts are so uneven that if causes patients to feel self-conscious. Sometimes the reason is because of the way the breasts developed in the first place. In other cases the breasts became uneven after pregnancy.
It is not uncommon for patients with breast implants to feel their breasts are sagging after a period of time. More commonly the two breasts simply mature differently as time goes on and differences become apparent. Sometimes this is related to the original surgery and sometimes it is simply the normal aging process. In some cases this is due to scar tissue or could be due to a change in the implant.
Breast Lift Surgery, also called ‘Mastopexy’ is a procedure that changes the shape of the breast.
Patients who feel their breasts need to be ‘lifted’ fall into a variety of categories and the treatment for each has different possible options.
