Determining Your Breast Lift Candidacy
For women who are unhappy with the perkiness of their chest, a breast lift can provide the younger-looking, firmer breasts they desire. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg is a renowned plastic surgeon who is able to provide superior treatment and results. During a consultation, he can help you understand your breast lift candidacy at his Long Island, NY, practice. Through this discussion, he can help you understand the best procedure for your needs and goals and the benefits that you can experience.
What a Breast Lift Can Achieve
A breast lift is designed to reposition the breasts, lifting them higher on the chest. The procedure can be completed using a variety of incision techniques to remove excess skin and raise the location of the nipple. Patients can achieve more height and projection for an improved figure with this surgery. However, the procedure does not increase the size of the bust line. If patients desire to increase breast volume, they may be more suited for a breast augmentationor a combined lift with augmentation.
This elective surgery is not recommended for women currently in the process of medical treatment. Women who are planning to have a baby in the near future, and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, are also recommended to delay having a breast lift.
Candidates for Varying Techniques
In order to undergo any breast surgery, you must be in good overall health to reduce the risks of surgery. You should also have realistic expectations of the results you can achieve. Women who have sagging, drooping breasts are typically the best candidates for a breast lift. You may begin to notice sagging breasts as a result of age, weight loss, or pregnancy and breastfeeding. The amount of sagging that you experience can affect the technique used during your procedure.
Also known as a donut lift, this surgery uses an incaision around the areola. The technique is best for patients with only mild to moderate drooping. Mild sagging usually results in the nipple being located below the center of the breast, but not below the crease of the breast along the chest wall.

This technique is also known as a lollipop lift, and it allows Dr. Greenberg to achieve more advanced results. The incisions for a lollipop lift are placed around the areola and down the front of the breast to the crease. This approach helps to address more significant droop by removing excess skin. Candidates for this procedure typically experience more moderate sagging, with the nipple at or below the level of the crease of their breast.
Sometimes known as an anchor lift, this surgery can provide the most dramatic results. Incisions will be placed around the areola, down the front of the breast, and along the crease. Most patients who have nipples that face completely downward are typically the best candidates for this method.
An in-depth consultation with Dr. Greenberg can help you understand the best options for you. He will review your health and your concerns with the appearance of your breasts, as well as discuss your goals for the procedure. If he determines you are a good candidate for a breast lift, you can discuss the best technique to help you achieve your desired silhouette.
