Aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, gravity and other factors can lead to sagging breasts, a major aesthetic concern for many women. Mastopexy or breast lift surgery is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure that addresses this concern. However, a traditional breast lift involves incisions and scarring, which makes most women hesitate to go ahead with the procedure. Fortunately, with breakthroughs in technology, women can now have a scarless breast lift in NYC. Performed by expert plastic surgeons, the procedure provides women with firm, shapely, attractive breasts with hardly any pain or downtime.
The scarless breasts lift is performed using BodyTite™, the FDA-approved device that utilizes Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology. This minimally-invasive procedure tightens, reshapes, and lifts the breasts without the scarring associated with a surgical breast lift. It gives you immediate, natural-looking results, along with immediate and noticeable skin tightening benefits. The procedure also stimulates the production of subsurface collagen fiber and improves the skin’s structure.
The BodyTite handpiece that features an external electrode and an internal electrode. The procedure starts by numbing the treatment area with local anesthesia. After that the external electrode is applied to the site and the device’s cannula is carefully inserted beneath the skin through a small incision. The electrode and cannula work together to deliver RF energy, which results in immediate skin contraction at the surface of the skin, and simultaneously increase the production of collagen to improve skin structure and tighten the skin.
As it is performed under local anesthesia, a scarless breast lift frees patients from the concerns associated with general anesthesia. The other benefits of scarless breast lift are listed below:
- Reshapes the breasts without invasive surgery
- Improves breast symmetry
- Natural looking, long-lasting results
- Immediate skin tightening, with results continuing to improve over time
- Improved skin structure with collagen production
- Needs only local anesthesia, which means lower anesthesia-related risks and short downtime
- Shorter recovery time than the traditional breast lift
Most patients resume their normal activities soon after a scarless breast lift. However, strenuous activities are advised only after one week. Results are noticeable in as little as one week but are far more pronounced within three to six months.
A breast lift does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. Instead, the procedure is mainly focused on addressing sagging and raising the breasts to an aesthetically pleasing position. It can result in a more proportionate and youthful-looking bust line. An expert plastic surgeon will determine the appropriate technique for the patient based on factors such as:
- Breast size and shape
- The size and position of the areolas
- The extent of sagging
- Skin quality and elasticity, and amount of extra skin present
