Breast Lift

Aging, weight loss, or motherhood can cause your breasts to sag, droop, and lose their shape. Women come to Dr. Cutolo's practice for breast lift surgery from Staten Island, Brooklyn, and throughout New York City to correct these concerns. Also known as a mastopexy, this procedure reshapes and repositions the breasts for a naturally youthful appearance.

Take the first step to enjoying firm, attractively positioned breasts that look as young as you feel. Request a complimentary consultation online, or call us today at (718) 720-9400 to schedule a visit.

Who is a Good Candidate?

You may benefit from a breast lift if you want to:

  • Restore a more youthful shape and position to breasts that are sagging
  • Reduce stretched and excess breast skin
  • Reposition or resize your areolas.

If you want to restore your breasts' youthful position and also achieve fuller breasts, Dr. Cutolo may recommend combining breast augmentation with your Staten Island breast lift. He has performed this breast enhancement for many of his patients, providing them with a more complete solution to their goals.

Your Procedure

At the consultation, Dr. Cutolo will discuss your breast surgery, and guide you in making the following decisions:

  • Surgery location, such as an accredited office-based surgical center, outpatient/ambulatory surgical center, or a hospital, to adhere to the highest levels of quality and safety.
  • Medication, which includes a choice between oral sedation, intravenous sedation and general anesthesia, to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.

During the surgery, Dr. Cutolo uses an incision technique chosen for your breast lift goals. The extent of the incisions depends on the degree of correction needed. Most breast lift patients will require an incision around the areola, one descending vertically, and in some cases an additional inframammary incision, forming an anchor or inverted "T" pattern. After removing excess skin, he repositions the nipple and areola and then reshapes the breasts. For those with small breasts and less sagging, Dr. Cutolo may perform a concentric lift by making circular incisions around the areola and removing a circular strip of skin shaped like a doughnut. For patients who require a minor elevation of the nipple, he may remove a small crescent shaped area of skin at the upper portion of the areola. For his patients with enlarged areolas, Dr. Cutolo reduces the size by removing skin around the perimeter. The surgery usually takes 1 to 3 hours based on the complexity of the lift needed to achieve the desired results.
