Breast Lift Westchester
Many women will experience a displeasure with the positioning and/or projection of their breasts. This loss of volume and tone is usually a result of weight gain or loss, pregnancy, heredity, or advancing age. In order to achieve that more youthful, higher, and firmer appeal, a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy may be right for you.
Breast Lift Procedure
A breast lift or mastopexy will change the shape of the breast and repositions the nipple to a higher level for a more pleasing aesthetic presentation. If you lost breast volume and desire more fullness, implants can be inserted during surgery.
During your mastopexy, Dr. Farella carefully removes excess skin. He then lifts the nipple so as to improve the shape and contour of your breast. The incision lines are designed so they are concealed under the bra. Scars are permanent but will fade with time.
