What can a New York City patient expect during a breast lift?
Many changes can happen to a woman’s body over time and can transform the way her body is contoured. When women go through changes such as pregnancy, weight loss, or aging, the appearance of their breasts can change. Breasts can be of an adequate size, but sag. Dr. Kwan can correct this for women in New York City. Breast lift surgery is the proper way to fix this.
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, is a procedure in which the breasts are “lifted” to give a more youthful appearance, while also maintaining a more desirable nipple position. It can also be combined with breast augmentation (mammoplasty), allowing patients to add breast implants in during the same procedure.
During the breast lift procedure, Dr. Kwan will remove excess skin from the breasts, lifting the area with tighter, firmer skin, and re-draping the skin in a more aesthetically pleasing way. This gives the breasts firmness and fullness that it may have been lost over time. The nipple positions are realigned accordingly.
The process of a breast lift begins with an examination and consultation appointment. Patients who are considering this treatment will be able to discuss their concerns with Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD, to learn whether a breast lift is the proper way to address the problem, or whether another treatment would work better. Patients will be examined and will have a thorough medical history done to ensure candidacy for treatment.
Many women enjoy making positive changes to their body. Pregnancy and weight changes can alter the contours of the body, and plastic surgery can help refine troublesome areas. Patients who want to see a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon can consult with Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of New York City. Breast lifts, breast reconstruction, and breast augmentation, among other services, are available at his practice for women to transform their bodies in a positive way!
