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.

After your surgery, Dr. Cutolo applies bandages to your incisions. To minimize swelling and provide support to your breasts as they heal, you will need to wear an elastic ACE bandage for the first 4 days, and then a sports bra for the next 3 weeks.
