Skin Care Clininc NYC

Breast Lift

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David P. Rapaport, MD is in private practice in Manhattan, New York and has been performing breast lift plastic surgery for over twenty years.

Breast lift surgery elevates and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin, raising the remaining skin and tissue, and repositioning the nipples. Breast lift surgery helps patients achieve a more attractive, feminine shape and contour, and more proportionate areolas.

Breast augmentation with breast implants is often part of the breast lift procedure.  In fact, many women seek out Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David P. Rapaport MD for his ability to achieve a natural appearing breast lift often with breast implants alone, placed via a small underarm scar, using his specialized endoscopic technique.

Why is breast lift plastic surgery performed?

  • To lift sagging or droopy breasts
  • Restore the contour of the breast after pregnancy or nursing
  • To lift the breast after loss of breast volume, or weight changes
  • Correct asymmetries in the breast

How long is the breast lift plastic surgery procedure? Usually 1-3 hours are needed for breast lift surgery. Time requirements can vary from case to case.

Where will my breast lift procedure be performed?  Your breast lift plastic surgery procedure will be performed in Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David P. Rappaport's Manhattan, New York fully accredited surgical facility. 

What are the side effects from the procedure?  What should I expect? Breast lift side effects can include temporary discomfort, bruising, and swelling. Breasts may be temporarily numb, or the skin may be dry. All patients wear a surgical bra home from surgery, and have dressings over the incisions for about 2-3 weeks

How long with the  results last? Breast lift plastic surgery results can last permanently. However, aging, gravity, and weight changes can also alter the results and create need for eventual breast lift revision.

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David P. Rapaport, MD will meticulously evaluate your breasts during your consultation at his Manhattan, New York office to determine if a breast lift procedure is appropriate or if a simple breast augmentation would be a better surgical option. The plastic surgeon will discuss the eventual breast shape and size, and give you an idea of what you can realistically expect after breast lift surgery.
