Breast Lift After Baby

Throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s body is not her own. She shares it with her baby—and for good reason! Mothers in NYC are miraculously able to nourish their babies for nine months and may continue to do so as they breastfeed their growing babies.

But once you’re done with pregnancy and breastfeeding, you may be surprised that your body refuses to return to normal. Unfortunately, the majority of mothers are frustrated and disappointed with their post-baby breasts. Your once over-filled breasts might be sagging, uneven, or lacking fullness.

Dr. Steinbrech created a special grouping of cosmetic surgery procedures called the “Mommy Makeover” in order to renew mothers’ confidence and restore their youthful appearance. Post-baby breast lifts are a popular option as part of the Mommy Makeover for women in NYC. Would a post-baby breast lift help you feel more like yourself again?

For most women, the answer is a resounding “yes!” After a breast lift, your breasts will once again have a high, firm appearance. A breast lift is also able to correct downward-pointing nipples and oversized areolas. The results will be stunning for you and your partner!

Breast lift surgery is pretty straightforward. It’s an outpatient procedure that lasts between 1.5 to 3.5 hours, depending on your individual circumstances. You will recovery in the post-op room for awhile before going home. The bandages come off after just a few days and you will be able to return to work within one or two weeks. Your breasts will settle into place as you recover and the permanent results will be visible after a few short months.

Pregnancy is a wonderful thing, but once you’re doing having children, you should do something special for yourself. If you’d like to restore your youthful breasts, call Dr. Steinbrech for a consultation today at (212) 750-7100!

Your First Consultation: What to Ask Your NY Plastic Surgeon

Finally taking the step from online searches to your first consultation? It is common that the excitement and/or nervousness we feel during the first consultation makes us forget what we should be asking when we finally sit down with a doctor. Mommy Makeover New York wants to provide you with the questions you should be asking during your first consultation. NYC’s Dr. Douglas Steinbrech provides his patients with answers to the following questions during his consultations:

  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

After most likely doing some research at home, you have probably targeted the procedures you think will best treat your problem areas. However, the doctor will provide you with his expertise as to if the procedure(s) you seek are best for you. The doctor will also make sure you are in good health and ask you other health related questions to make sure you are a good candidate.

  • What will be expected of me to get the best results?

To get the best results possible from your procedure, often times a surgeon will provide you with what you can do. Maybe brisk exercise post-recovery time, massaging the breasts after a breast augmentation and/or a change in diet after a tummy-tuck may be recommended by the doctor.

  • How will you perform my procedure?

Cosmetic surgery procedures are not all performed alike. A surgeon may use different techniques depending on the patient’s needs and/or unique body type, to use the least invasive route, or because they have developed an expertise with a certain technique. Asking how your procedure will be performed is an important question.

  • What surgical technique is recommended for me?

You may have a specific technique in mind when going into your consultation, for example, you may want your incision for breast augmentation to be under the armpit. However, a benefit of seeking an experienced plastic surgeon is also receiving knowledge recommendations.

  • How long will my recovery period be, and what can I expect?

Making sure you clearly understand the recovery process is something you should ask during your consultation. Arranging a few days off of work, knowing when you can resume regular activities and other such questions are helpful to ask.

  • What kind of help will I need, if any, during my recovery?

A surgeon may recommend having the care and supervision of a friend or family member when leaving the surgery center. This information will help you plan ahead for your surgery date.

  • What results are reasonable for me?

When researching cosmetic surgeries, thousands of before and after photos are sure to be found, but it’s important to remember everyone is different. Looking specifically at the before and after photos of the plastic surgeon you are consulting with can give you a greater idea of their specific work, also bringing along photos of your desired results can offer more insight.

Making the decision to feel happy with your breasts provides women with numerous benefits, including a new found confidence. Seeking an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Douglas Steinbrech in NYC, can give you the natural results you’re looking for-among other wonderful benefits.

  1. Improved appearance of breasts. Appearance is more than just size. Breast augmentation can improve unevenness, fullness, poor cleavage, lack of projection and lack of proportion.
  2. Enhances your figure. A breast augmentation can complement your curves and enhance the contour of your body.
  3. Increased feeling of youth. As women age, it is common for the breasts to droop because of high density tissue. Breast augmentation or breast lift can raise the breasts back to their youthful state.
  4. Improved self-esteem. A breast augmentation can increase your confidence in your appearance. As a result of this, many women feel increased satisfaction in their sex lives.
  5. Increased clothing options. When shopping for clothes, you may feel that your body is disproportionate or unbalanced. Women who have breast augmentation experience more enjoyment in shopping for clothes, and feel that clothes fit better.
