1 Hr Procedure
Breast lift surgery usually takes only about an hour in my practice and is done in my accredited private surgery center with a board-certified anesthesiologist. The anesthesia is very short-acting so you wake up quickly and feeling much better than with older types of anesthesia.
A long-acting local anesthetic decreases the need for pain medicine, because if you wake up comfortable, the need for pain medicine is MUCH less and you just feel BETTER! If you meet a past patient, the vast majority will tell you that this system allowed them to have their lift with little or no discomfort at all and they were out and about in just a few days.

Having shapely breast is important to many women. If your breasts used to be firm, shapely, and youthful but now sag, droop, or look deflated, you can return them to their beauty with breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy. Aging, gravity, weight gain and weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can all contribute to sagging breasts.

Breast Lift Techniques
Dr. Joel Studin has many years of experience doing thousands of breast lifts. There are several techniques used for lifting the breast. It is important to understand the difference.
The lollipop (LeJeour) lift
The lollipop lift is allmost always the procedure of choice for Dr. Studin. It results in the least possible scarring to get the best result. The incision resembles a lollipop on a stick in its appearance. It goes around the edge of the areola and straight down beneath it. There are no additional incisions made, and there is also no cut made under the breast. After the procedure, the breast is given a lifted appearance, giving the impression of more youthful vitality, and it also feels more firm. The amount of scarring is usually slight. Dr. Studin almost never uses drains for this procedure, making for an easier recovery!
The donut (Benelli) lift
For patients who have just a very slight breast droop, a single incision that encircles the areola can be done to correct the condition. The breast skin is pulled tauter, and the nipples are moved to a more aesthetically attractive position while doing so. This procedure has significant limitations though, that you need to discuss with the doctor before you decide whether or not to request it.
The anchor lift
An anchor (Wise pattern) lift is the oldest method of breast lifting. An incision is made that encircles the areola, descends vertically to the breast crease, and then runs horizontally along the inframammary fold in this procedure. This creates the shape of an upside-down "T" or an anchor. Dr. Studin almost never uses this procedure as it results in much more, and usually unnecessary scarring of the skin.
The crescent lift
Individuals who have only mild to moderate sagging of the nipples and areolae, might be good candidates for the crescent lift, which is one of the less invasive forms of breast contouring. An incision in the shape of a half circle is made around the upper edge of the areola in order to move the nipple and areola upward. The breast itself is not lifted with this procedure.
What To Expect From during your consultation
A breast lift is a surgical technique to address sagging breasts and restore an appearance that is fresher and more youthful. The first step in breast lift surgery, much like the first step in any other surgical operation, is a consultation explaining the procedure in detail and going over pictures of previous patients. That way, the doctor can decide with you if this procedure will help you achieve what you would like, and which technique will be best. You also need to see if additional enhancements, such as breast implants and areolar reduction should be planned as well. If you are a good candidate and would like to go ahead with a breast lift, your surgery date will be scheduled.
Not only will you have time to ask questions during your initial consultation comma but there will be a second visit with both the doctor and the nurses prior to your surgery.
