Breast Lift Information New Jersey
Weight loss, breastfeeding, and natural changes with aging can all take a toll on the breasts, which can commonly cause them to droop, sag, or deflate. Breast lift surgery (“mastopexy”) is performed to help tighten excess skin, reshape the breast itself and raise the nipples to a more youthful position.
Morristown breast lift surgeon Brian S. Glatt, M.D. is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Individuals throughout Northern New Jersey, Morris County, and the entire tri-state area, often seek his keen aesthetic skills and knowledge of the latest and most innovative cosmetic and reconstructive surgical techniques.
Offering a personal touch, an exceptional artistic vision, and technical expertise, Dr. Brian S. Glatt MD, of the Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey, can help patients achieve a natural-looking, more balanced and lifted appearance with a breast lift procedure.
Depending on the extent of the patient’s condition, Dr. Glatt will decide between two incision location options. Occasionally, only a periareolar incision is used, which is extremely well hidden and offers minimal scarring. This incision is made around the areola and a circular path of skin is removed, thus tightening the breast and raising the level of the nipple and areolar. In cases where more skin needs to be removed or if the breast has lost more volume, a vertical incision will be made under the breast from the crease to the areola, and will be combined with a circular incision around the areola (the “lollipop” incision).
Women who are seeking to enhance the size of the breasts or regain lost volume from deflation or changes from aging or pregnancy, may also decide to undergo breast augmentation (“augmentation mammaplasty”) combined with a breast lift. Breast lift with augmentation (“augmentation mastopexy”) will require the lifting of the breasts along with the placement of saline or silicone gel filled breast implants (Dr. Glatt usually places breast implants under the breast muscle).
During the consultation, breast lift surgeon Dr. Glatt will assess the patient’s health, body type, and aesthetic goals. At this time, additional breast lift information will be provided.
