Introduction to Breast Lift

Restoration & Rejuvenation

A woman’s body can undergo a serious amount of changes as she ages, especially if she has given birth or is undergoing serious weight loss. While all life changes are to be celebrated, sometimes they come with specific physical side effects. Breasts may often start to sag due to the natural effects of aging, heredity, gravity, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. This can be considered a challenge for many women to see. It’s not always easy to witness your body transform! A Breast Lift—also referred to as a Mastopexy—is a modern procedure performed to return youthful shape and lift to breasts that have begun to sag or lost volume and firmness. This popular surgical procedure removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to create a new breast contour.

Dr. William Samson diligently works to deliver some of the best breast lift results in New York City. Below, we’ve included our guide for the surgery, but if you’d like to schedule a consultation, or have any questions, please contact us today.

Before & After


New York

Let’s start with the basics

What is Breast Lift?

Mastopexy is the medical name for a breast lift. Some women feel very self-conscious about the deflation of their breasts, and a Breast Lift could be the procedure they are dreaming of. A Breast Lift in New York City can restore the chest to a more feminine and natural position, solving cosmetic insecurities and resolving mental fatigue or frustration. In most cases, the procedure repositions the nipple and areola placement to enhance the new contoured appearance. Dr. Samson and his skilled team use their experience to create a surgical plan that rejuvenates the breasts by trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissues; this achieves an uplifted, youthful silhouette. After a Mastopexy, the breasts are higher on the chest and firmer to the touch.

Dr. Samson usually performs Mastopexy on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, and the surgery lasts from one to three hours. While swelling will need to subside, our patients are immediately satisfied with their new breasts and can typically return to work one to two weeks following the procedure with a new walk of life and confidence.

Main Advantages

What are the Benefits of Breast Lift?

A Breast Lift procedure will technically lift and firm breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue and muscles. Still, the positives to the surgery do not stop at the aesthetic result. A Breast Lift is a very sought-after procedure for the many benefits it offers our patients, and Dr. Samson is focused on helping connect you to specific benefits that will help you live a better life. Our office has created a list of benefits that may apply to you:

  • More Attractive Breast Shape: By lifting the breast tissue, we can restore a more attractive and supple breast figure.
  • Improved Nipple Projection: Frequently, drooping breasts have nipples that point down toward the floor; a breast lift can help resolve this. Dr. Samson can reposition the nipple, giving it a more natural projection.
  • Youthful Breast Appearance: Sagging is most related to aging, post-pregnancy, and weight loss. Our Breast Lift can restore that youthful position and projection you desire, giving form to high, perky breasts.
  • Reduced Under Breast Irritation: Many patients come to Dr. Samson because the low-sitting breasts lead to irritation caused by excess skin; this can even be painful. The surgery will reduce the amount of excess breast skin to improve painful chafing.
  • A Breast Lift with Dr. Samson can also help eliminate stretch marks on the breasts. This popular surgical procedure can also reduce the size of the areola if they have become enlarged over time.

What to expect on the day of surgery

On the day of your Breast Lift, Dr. William Samson will aim to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. When this day arrives, you will have a clear path toward your goals and recovery; this is extremely important to our team—comfort is key. Based on your breast’s style and the procedure’s goals, there could be many variations in the technique Dr. Samson will use. Breast Lifts in New York City are often performed as outpatient procedures using a local anesthetic.

When it comes to the actual procedure, we focus on every detail. First, Dr. Samson will circle the areola or the dark skin around the nipple. The second incision begins under the nipple and continues to the bottom of the breast. A final incision is along the breast crease at the base of the breast. These incisions define the areas where excess skin, left from aging or sagging of the breast, can be removed. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. Once the excess skin has been removed, the nipple and areola will be placed in a new position, and the breast will be reshaped about them, completing your new chest and look.

Often the first step can be the most difficult, especially when it comes to the world of Plastic Surgery.

Breast Lift FAQs

Is A Breast Lift painful?

Pain is a serious topic; sometimes, the fear of the conversation stops many from getting the treatments they need and deserve. After a Breast Lift, you'll have some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. While distress or pain after surgery is to be expected, our patients usually mention that Breast Lift surgery is a lot less painful than what they expected. The skin around your chest and breasts may feel tight; this is normal. These effects will get better over time and last about a total of two weeks. If you have drains near the incisions, our team will remove them a few days after the procedure.

How many appointments will I need?

Every patient is different, and this creates distinct frequencies of appointments. We understand the importance of knowing a plan for your schedule ahead of time, which is why after a consultation, we will have a clear path in the future for your Breast Lift. It's not uncommon for Dr. Samson to see patients weekly until the breasts are healed and everything about the lift feels complete. You can expect an appointment for scar checks, then a further review at three months to check the results. 

How long until I see results?

The majority of our patients report seeing results when most of the swelling disappears within a few weeks after Breast Lift surgery. It should be noted that there can be some residual swelling that hangs around; the final results will only be optimal once this levels out. Approximately six to twelve weeks after the Breast Lift surgery with Dr. Samson, your breasts should be mostly settled into their new positions. However, it may be between six months and a year before you see your complete and final results. 

Can I combine Breast Lift with other procedures?

While some patients seeking a Breast Lift are satisfied with the results, others often look to combine it with other surgeries for even more successful outcomes. In these cases, Dr. Samson recommends combining a lift with Breast Augmentation to achieve a gorgeous and more feminine contour. The best way to determine which procedure best complement your Breast Lift is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Samson.

What are the risks associated with Breast Lifts?

Every procedure comes with a certain amount of risk; our team is here to discuss this in detail. Dr. Samson combines decades of experience, direction, and technique to minimize as many risks associated with our procedures; safety is our top priority. Breast Lifts are incredibly safe, with minimal risks, though some rare occurrences can contain:
