How can you stand out, get noticed, and turn heads at a Halloween party in the midst of ghoulish costumes and scary make-ups? Simple, get a breast lift and then get into a Halloween costume that will let you show off your enviable, youthful figure. A breast lift surgery improves the shape and position of the breasts to impart a perkier look. The increase in the size of the breasts during pregnancy, the weight loss afterwards, and breastfeeding tend to make breasts droopy. Sagging boobs give you an aged appearance, which is something you don’t need not just this Halloween but ever.

What is a Breast Lift Surgery?

First, a disclaimer. A breast lift surgery does not increase the size of the breasts. It improves the appearance of droopy and/or deflated breasts, uneven breasts, and breasts that have lost volume and now appear elongated and pendulous. A breast lift can also improve the appearance of nipples and areolas that point downward or are positioned in the crease of unsupported breasts.

The goal of a breast lift surgery, as the name suggests, is to improve the shape of the breasts and position them higher up on the chest. The result is perkier and more upright breasts. The procedure reverses the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding and gives you a youthful, attractive look.

There are four different types of breast lift techniques. Your surgeon will decide on one depending on your goals. All the procedures leave the milk duct and the nipples unaffected. So if you want to have more babies afterwards, you can go ahead without worrying about the after-effects of your breast lift surgery or wondering if you will be able to breastfeed again.

What to Expect During the Breast Lift Recovery Period

A breast lift is usually performed on an outpatient basis and the procedure takes just a few hours. You can go back home the same day, which is an ideal situation for a new mommy who doesn’t want to be away from her baby for too long.

Like any other surgical procedure, a breast lift too can cause some pain and discomfort after the surgery. But these go away within a few days. A skillful surgeon makes the incisions such that the scars do not show, so you don’t have to wear buttoned-up costumes on Halloween.

You can get back to your normal life within a few days after the surgery. So if you undergo breast lift now, you will be ready to party in time for Halloween. But you have to avoid physically demanding tasks and jobs that involve heavy lifting for three weeks to a month.

The results of a breast lift are immediately visible; take a look at some breast lift before-and-after photographs to know what you can expect from the surgery.

Breast lift is a standard procedure if you want to go in for a mommy makeover. Being a mommy is a tough job and kudos to you, for carrying it out perfectly. But don’t let the stresses of pregnancy and breastfeeding show. Reclaim your pre-pregnancy body by going in for a breast lift. You can look both sexy and scary this Halloween!

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!
