Breast Lift in Paramus, NJ

Youthful breasts are part of the ideal feminine silhouette in our culture. Yet, in reality, many women’s breasts undergo an array of changes over time because they lose firmness and elasticity, whether that’s the result of pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or gravity. Other women have always been dissatisfied with the shape of their breasts, inheriting a breast shape that is downturned or droopy due to genetics.

Breast lift surgery is an excellent solution to sagging breasts. Dr. Nouri is a talented and compassionate plastic surgeon dedicated to safety, patient satisfaction, and producing beautiful results. His specialized training in breast enhancement procedures enables him to shape breasts that suit your body and your desired aesthetic.


What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgery designed to lift the breasts so they sit higher on the chest. Excess skin is removed, tissue is reshaped, and a new breast contour is formed. A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola and put the nipple in a more pleasing position.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?

A good candidate for breast lift surgery is ideally in good health, does not smoke (or is willing to quit), and has realistic expectations.

Find out if you’re a candidate by scheduling a consultation with Nouri Plastic Surgery. Call us today: (973) 200-2050!

What Techniques Are Used for the Breast Lift Procedure?

There are a few incision placement options for the mastopexy procedure. The type of incision depends on the level of ptosis (sagginess), the amount of tissue to be removed, and the nipple-areola location. Dr. Nouri will discuss the best incision for you at your consultation.

What is a Periareolar Breast Lift?

  • Incision: Around the outer edge of the areola.
  • Shape: Circular.
  • Scarring: Minimal, concealed along the areola border.
  • Usage: Good for mild to moderate ptosis.

What Is a Lollipop Breast Lift?

  • Incision: Around the areola and extends vertically down to the breast crease.
  • Shape: Circular with a downward vertical line to the inframmary fold like a lollipop.
  • Scarring: Moderate but fades over time.
  • Usage: Good for moderate or severe ptosis. Provides more lift and shaping than periareolar.

What Is an Anchor Breast Lift?

  • Incision: Around the areola, vertically down to the breast crease, and along the inframammary fold.
  • Shape: Circular around the areola, straight vertical line down, and horizontal line along the breast crease, resembling an anchor or inverted T.
  • Scarring: Most extensive but fades over time with proper care.
  • Usage: Good for severe ptosis and allows for substantial reshaping and lift.

What Procedures Can Be Combined With Breast Lift?

It can be a wise choice to combine plastic surgery procedures to maximize recovery time and minimize general anesthesia exposure. You can discuss your overall body aesthetic goals with Dr. Nouri at your consultation appointment. In any case, the following are popular procedures to combine with a breast lift:

Breast Augmentation and Lift

Combine your breast lift with breast implants for not only more youthful breasts but an increased size for your ideal bustline.

Breast Reduction and Lift

If you desire a reduced breast size, combining a breast reduction with a breast lift can transform your breasts into a smaller, more youthful aesthetic that increases your comfort and confidence.

Breast Lift with Fat Transfer

If you’d like to add volume to your breasts but don’t want implants, fat grafting is an excellent option for you. Reduce fat in undesired areas, like the abdomen or hips, and place it in the breasts—with this procedure and a breast lift, you’ll walk away with a transformative new look overall.

What Is Breast Lift Recovery Like?

After your procedure, you will be placed under observation until you’re ready to be discharged. You will be wrapped in bandages and other surgical dressings and most likely wearing a surgical bra to support the breasts. Dr. Nouri’s team will provide you with post-operative instructions to follow.

Swelling, discomfort, bruising, and skin tightness are normal sensations following breast lift surgery. These will improve over the next two weeks.

Many patients can return to a desk job and mild activity, like walking, after about a week. You will be restricted from more vigorous activities for up to six weeks. Most women can resume wearing a normal bra after eight weeks.

What Results Can I Expect From Breast Lift?

After the initial swelling subsides, your final results will become more apparent, although your breasts will be noticeably lifted immediately. You can reasonably expect to enjoy the results of a breast lift for years. Mastopexy does not prevent normal aging, but results are generally long-lasting and will always look better than if you’d never had a breast lift.

You will have visible scars after surgery, but these scars will fade significantly over time. Breast lift scars can take up to two years to fade until they’re nearly invisible. How your scars heal depends on your skin type and scar care. We will provide you with care instructions after surgery.

How Much Does Breast Lift Cost in Paramus, NJ?

The cost of a breast lift depends on various factors and is highly individualized. During your consultation, Dr. Nouri can provide a more accurate cost estimate and pricing details for your breast lift.
