About Breast Lift

A breast lift in NYC is a plastic surgery procedure that allows patients to reduce breast sag, restoring firmness and perkiness to the breasts. Also called mastopexy, the breast lift is an effective way to enhance the breasts’ shape and contours.

What Is a Breast Lift?

Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Francesco Gargano performs a highly advanced technique that he created himself: the Yin-Yang Breast Lift. With this innovative method, Dr. Gargano achieves longer-lasting results that look incredibly natural. He regularly performs this specialized technique and has performed over 1,000 breast surgeries using it.

The Yin-Yang Breast Lift is designed to narrow the base of the breast and maintain the projection of the mammary cone. It involves creating two dermo-glandular tissue flaps. Dr. Gargano uses a spiral movement to reposition the flaps, thus repositioning the breast.

Good Candidates for a Breast Lift

The best candidates for a mastopexy procedure are patients who want to lift their sagging breasts, restore symmetry, and/or resize and reposition their areolae. Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts after breastfeeding are excellent candidates for a breast lift.

Candidates must be in good overall health without any pre-existing conditions that could cause issues with the procedure. Smokers will need to quit several weeks before their procedure date.

Your Consultation

You will meet with Dr. Gargano for a breast lift consultation before a date is set for your surgery. This will allow the surgeon to learn about your goals for the procedure. He will perform a physical examination and go over your medical history, including allergies and any past procedures.

Dr. Gargano will talk to you about the procedure in great detail, discussing preparation steps, the Ying-Yang Breast Lift itself, and all recovery instructions. Make sure to ask any questions you may have.

The Mastopexy Recovery and Healing Process

Once your breast lift is complete, you will be able to return home to heal. The recovery process will involve taking time off from work and avoiding physically strenuous activities. Bruising and swelling will be present but will fade over time. Painkillers may be prescribed, along with antibiotics. Wearing a surgical bra will be necessary in order to support the tissues as they heal.

You will need to come in for a follow-up appointment so that Dr. Gargano can check on the status of your mastopexy healing. Your sutures will be removed, and Dr. Gargano will ensure that no complications have occurred.

Once all healing is complete and swelling has ameliorated, the final results of your breast lift can be seen. Patients can enjoy perkier breasts with improved shape and symmetry.


How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?

Several factors can affect the cost of a breast lift. The total time needed to complete the surgery may be taken into account, along with anesthesia fees and the techniques utilized.

What Is Breast Lift Surgery Like?

At the start of a patient’s breast lift procedure, either general anesthesia or a combination of local anesthesia and sedation will be administered. After it has taken effect, incisions will be created. Dr. Gargano will perform his Yin-Yang Breast Lift technique, accomplishing all of the patient’s desired changes. Finally, the incisions will be closed with the help of medical stitches.
