Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

A breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure used to address breast sag and make the breasts look firmer, rounder, and more symmetrical. With the help of a breast lift, New Jersey patients can contour their breasts for a perkier and more youthful appearance.

Why Choose a Breast Lift?

The number-one reason to undergo a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is to enhance or restore the shape of your breasts after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or major weight loss.

If your breasts point downward or if the nipples/areolae are positioned beneath the breasts, this procedure is an excellent option.

Additionally, if your breasts are asymmetrical or if they have an unusual shape that makes you self-conscious, then mastopexy is right for you. It can improve symmetry and restore your breasts to a more natural and rounded shape.

Remember, the breast lift is specifically used to address breast shape issues. To enlarge the breasts, breast augmentation with implants is the better option.

In some cases, a breast lift and a breast augmentation can be performed during the same surgical session. This is called augmentation mastopexy. A breast lift with implants requires only a single recovery period and provides comprehensive breast enhancement.

Which Lift Is Best for Me?

During your consultation, Dr. Ganchi will perform an examination and advise you on the best type of mastopexy surgery for you.
There are three types to choose from:

  • Donut Lift (Periareolar Lift) – This corrects minor to moderate sagging and involves two concentric circles around the areola.
  • Lollipop Lift (Vertical Lift) – This is used to address moderate sagging. It features the creation of a circular incision around the areola and an incision down to the breast crease.
  • Anchor Lift (Inverted-T Lift) – This rectifies breasts that sag severely and are pendulous. It involves creation of a lollipop incision, along with a curved incision along the breast crease.

What Happens During the Breast Lift Procedure?

Breast lifts are mostly performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure lasts for an hour or two. First, the patient is given general anesthesia or a combination of local anesthesia and sedation.

Once the anesthesia has taken effect and the patient is comfortable, the chosen incisions are created. Dr. Ganchi removes the excess skin and reshapes the breast tissues while also lifting up the nipples and areolae. Areolae that are stretched or oversized can also be reduced. Finally, incisions are closed with the help of surgical stitches.

The Mastopexy Recovery Process

After surgery, your breasts will be bandaged, or you may be asked to wear a surgical bra. Mild swelling and soreness will be felt, but you can walk around in your home on the day of the surgery. Bruising will also be present for a time.

After a week, you can most likely return to work. After around four to six weeks, you will be able to resume strenuous activities like heavy exercise and sports. After eight weeks, you may resume wearing underwire bras.

Once all healing is complete and swelling has fully disappeared, the breasts will look more proportional and natural. Look over our breast lift before-and-after photos to learn more.

Breast Lift Cost

Patients typically list the cost of their mastopexy procedure as a major consideration. The price of your breast lift will depend on the exact techniques utilized, along with factors like the total surgery time and anesthesia fees.

Dr. Ganchi and his team are the best around! The facility is absolutely beautiful. During my consultation appointment, I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. My rhinoplasty surgery was more than successful and recovery was quick and painless! 1 year later and I'm still complimented on his beautiful work!
I just had my rhinoplasty surgery 1 week ago . Dr. Ganchi did an amazing job. Exactly what I was hoping for is what I received. I was unsure about the surgery and the process because I never had any before. The whole staff was great, patient, understanding and took great care of me. Dr. Ganchi has such a soft, gentle touch and takes his time. It shows with the results. Very minimal bruising first day and after that gone. Day by day, results are getting better and better. If you are feeling hesitant or have concerns let me ease your mind and tell you, they were great and you are in great hands.
Recently I had reconstructive nose surgery. The process was simple. So far I am 10 days into the recovery phase. It has not been scary or dreadful. Swelling around the eyes reduced after a few days! All that is left is keeping my nose protected! If you follow the instructions that Dr. Ganchi and his team lay out for you then it is smooth sailing!

Greetings all! I recently had labiaplasty done with Dr.Ganchi. I found Dr.Ganchi’s practice long before life gave me time to proceed with this procedure. Therefore I was very happy through each step of the way. After a wonderful consultation in which Dr.Ganchi thoroughly explained what I should expect as far as having the procedure done and the healing process etc. I too am thorough and was left without a question to ask. The front desk staff is fabulous. They were informative which made me feel comfortable and at ease. I even purchased a facial and they were sweet and helpful. The surgery room was airy and I loved my view. I was totally comfortable during the entire procedure. I went right in and in no time I was home. The healing process was just as I was told it would be so felt just fine all throughout. I went back to work on the seventh day after the procedure. I am proud of myself for achieving this and you should too. It’s a life changer in many ways, from clothes feeling comfortable to wiping differently after peeing. I will certainly continue seeing Dr.Ganchi for other procedures, he is really the best! Thank you Dr.Ganchi!!

Best decision I've ever made. Period. For most, plastic surgery decisions are life changing. Not only physically, but mentally as well. Going under the knife voluntarily is a wild experience because YOU choose the surgeon, and with the surgeon, their team. Let me just say real quick...Dr G., Laila, Karen, and Marcela are NJ's DREAM TEAM. I had a breast augmentation performed at the end of June 2021, and WOW. Worth. Every.Penny. It hasn't even been a month of recovery and my results are amazing. I feel so sexy, so confident, and so complete. Brings me tears knowing something I've wanted for ten years, is here, and I've been given exactly what I dreamt of. Dr.G is the REAL DEAL. They make me feel like family when I'm there and can't wait to continue seeing them... from my breasts to my routine botox.. there's nothing he can't do.

Dr Ganchi is a wonderful, caring doctor and a true artist. He put me back together again after four kids that did a number on my abdominals and I am so grateful to have found him. My results are unbelievable. His staff is also top notch and hold your hand through every step of the process. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Ganchi and his staff are the best of the best. They all made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Ganchi is so gentle, which made my recovery process painless and easy. I was worried about the recovery process for a rhinoplasty, but I would do it all over again if I had to. It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be all thanks to Dr. Ganchi. I will definitely be recommending Dr. Ganchi to everyone I know!!!
