Breast Lift

Based in New York City

Breast Lift is performed using the same incisions as breast reduction. Excess skin is removed, but not breast tissue. In essence, this operation creates a tighter, higher skin brassiere. When there is less dramatic sagging of the breasts, smaller incisions will often suffice, sometimes only around the areola, where scarring is minimal.

Dr. Imber’s Tips!

In all the years I’ve been performing breast reductions no one has complained about scars, which rapidly fade. The change in body image, lifestyle, and new confidence make for a happy patient.

Gerald Imber, MD

The level of patient satisfaction with both breast lift and breast reduction is very high. Scars fade with time, but never fully disappear. None-the-less, patients are delighted with the trade off.

Preparing for Your Breast Lift

The first step is scheduling a consultation for your breast lift. During your consultation, Dr. Imber will ask about your reasons for wanting a breast lift and ask about what your desired results are. He will also perform an exam and go over your medical history to determine if you are healthy enough to undergo surgery.

During this time, Dr. Imber can also let you know what the expected cost of your breast lift will be. Cost will vary based on the techniques used and the work needed to provide the patient with results that satisfy their aesthetic needs.

Breast Lift Recovery and Results

The incisions will be sutured shut and a surgical bra will be placed over the breast. This surgical bra will provide support during the recovery process. There will be a bit of bruising and swelling. These issues are to be expected and will subside over time. Pain can be managed with medication.

It will take some time to see the full results of your breast lift. Most patients can resume their normal activities after two weeks or so. More strenuous and physically demanding activities should be avoided for longer.

Is a Breast Lift Right for Me?

If you are bothered by the saggy or wrinkled appearance of your breast, you are likely to be a good candidate for a breast lift. If you desire larger breasts, a breast lift will not provide you with the results you are looking for. a breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation for more comprehensive results. A breast reduction and lift is also an option that can be discussed.


Your Breast Lift will be performed in Dr. Imber‘s Surgery center located in NYC.

How much does a Breast Lift Cost?

 Any questions you have regarding procedure costs can be discussed during your consultation at Dr. Imber’s office.

I’ve been visiting the Youth Corridor every few weeks in attempts to rejuvenate my skin after years of sun damage. I can’t say enough good things about their “No-Peel Peel,” which I credit for saving my skin. I’ve also had a deeper chemical peel there and have been astounded at the results. Their office is so clean and the estheticians are so patient and knowledgeable. I’ve already sent many of my friends there who have also had similarly positive experiences.
