Breast Lift New York City and New Jersey
How long has it been since you stepped out of the shower and saw beautifully contoured, perky breasts in the mirror? In New Jersey and New York City, many Breast Lift patients have watched helplessly as their breasts slowly migrate south while losing volume and shape. Age, significant weight fluctuation, and having children considerably affect skin laxity and breast structure causing our breasts to sag.
Pouring your sagging breasts into a bra every morning and watching as they fall the moment you remove your lingerie every night isn’t the answer. And no amount of diet or exercise – nor creams or pills – can tone and shape your breasts. Breast Lift surgery with Dr. John Mesa may provide the lasting solution you seek.
How is a breast Lift in New Jersey and New York City with Dr. John Mesa performed?
Dr. John Mesa, MD usually performs breast Lifts in New Jersey and New York City on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. The design of the incision varies, but usually includes an incision around the nipple-areolar complex and a vertical incision bellow the areola (“lollipop” scar) and in the crease under the breast ( “anchor” or “Inverted T” scar).
Dr. John Mesa, MD uses the latest techniques, including vertical and periareolar mastopexy, which not only reduce the amount of scar, but also shape the breast tissue into a more pleasing and long-lasting contour. The nipple-areolar complex (NAC) is repositioned higher, the excess skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a more pleasing contour. A breast Lift involves moving the nipple and breast tissue to a higher level on your chest so that the nipple will lie at the level of the breast fold. The skin below the nipple is then tightened and contoured to your new shape. If breast augmentation or enlargement is also desired, a breast implant can be used in conjunction with the breast Lift. That decision will be based on your personal goals, he amount of available breast tissue and the degree of anterior breast projection desired.
What is to expect during breast Lift surgery?
You will undergo surgery under general anesthesia at one of the fully accredited hospitals or surgery center operating rooms where Dr. John Mesa routinely performs surgery in New Jersey or New York City. The procedure takes 3 to 4 hours to complete. Dr. Mesa closes the incisions with dissolving stitches and places you in a supportive bra for your comfort during the recovery. Generally, breast augmentation with breast implants is performed on an outpatient basis. You will need to have a close friend or family member drive you to and from the surgery center and care for you for the first 24-48 hours after surgery.
What is to expect after breast Lift surgery?
Patients may have varying degrees of temporary bruising, swelling, and some discomfort. Dr. John Mesa, MD will prescribe medication to help you with any soreness after surgery. You will wear a special support bra after surgery. You will be up and moving around the day of surgery. Depending on your type of employment, you may return to work between 7-14 days after your breast procedure. Stitches will dissolve and do not need to be removed. Swelling in your breasts may take a few weeks to disappear. Dr. Mesa will closely follow your recovery to ensure you are able to resume normal exercising and activities.
Why not go to an Obstetrician, Gynecologists, Internists, Primary Care Physician Dentists and “cosmetologists” for breast Lift surgery?
Practitioners like Obstetricians or Gynecologist and other doctors who are not formally residency-trained and Board Certified to perform Breast Lift surgery have been found to suffer a much higher rate of complications, as it’s a side interest to them, and not a treatment they’re certified to do all day long. One of the most common complaints is minimal improvement, asymmetries, “operated look”, etc.
Only a licensed professional with the knowledge, training and skills required to achieve optimum results should perform Breast Lift. Look for a plastic surgeon who is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who has completed his training at some of the top residency and fellowship institutions.
