For many of our patients, their breasts are such an important part of who they are. A woman’s breasts can express her femininity, her form, her confidence, and the very way she projects herself into the world. Viva Eve exists with a radical mission to empower all women through compassionate and holistic health services.

One of the ways we offer radical wellness is through a number of breast lift services in NYC. Many of our patients are interested in this procedure because they are dealing with saggy breasts as a result of breastfeeding, weight loss, or a genetic condition. The “deflated” and sunken look that breasts can have after going through a big change often leaves women feeling insecure and unsexy. Fortunately, there is a healthy and realistic way to restore a youthful look to your whole body with a breast lift in NYC at Viva Eve!

A lot of patients will include a breast lift as part of a Mommy Makeover package, but this procedure can be performed on its own as well. Keep reading about how you can take advantage of this opportunity and finally have control over the look of your own body again.

What is a Breast Lift?

If you are concerned about your sagging breasts, a breast lift might be the perfect procedure for you. Using advanced surgical techniques, our NYC breast lift surgery procedures offer incredible, aesthetically-pleasing results. Breast lifts will lift up your sagging breasts by removing excess fat, reshaping the breasts, and adding possible implants to enhance your look.

Viva Eve’s Unique Approach

Our plastic surgery team at Viva Eve consists of best-in-class experts who are dedicated to putting your needs and comfort first. It’s important to establish an understanding of what you want to accomplish and what procedure is best for you.

Every patient is unique, and results will look different for every patient. All of our Manhattan and Queens locations are equipped with luxury-style accommodations, giving you the best possible experience. We are driven by a modern take on plastic surgery that puts the empowerment of women at the forefront.

How do you prepare for a Breast Lift?

Preparing for a breast lift requires certain medical clearances to ensure you are physically healthy and approved to undergo anesthesia. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will likely ask you to: 

  • Complete lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust medications you’re currently taking (such as avoiding aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs that can increase bleeding)
  • Get a mammogram prior to and after surgery to identify possible future changes in your breast tissue
  • Pause smoking

Why is a Breast Lift performed?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to correct droopy breasts, which can naturally occur from aging, pregnancy and breastfeeding. The procedure lifts sagging breasts and reshapes them so they look perkier, fuller and more youthful. 

A breast lift can be performed in a variety of different ways with varying degrees of invasiveness. For some, it is as simple as tightening the skin and repositioning the nipple. More complex cases may include the use of breast implants or even tissue removal to reshape breasts. 

Ultimately, it will be your plastic surgeon who will ultimately make this determination based on your overall health and specifics of the procedure you choose.

How the Procedure is Performed

At Viva Eve, we use advanced incision techniques to ensure not only the most aesthetically pleasing results but also minimal scarring. Depending on the type of breast lift surgery that your surgeon recommends for you, the surgery itself might happen in one of a few different ways.

Traditional breast lifts include a periareolar (around the areola) incision, which is a vertical line going down the breast. From there, the breast tissue is readjusted and realigned before being closed back up. There may be some scars left over after the procedure, but it typically becomes less noticeable over time.

How to Ensure Permanent Results

Any board-certified plastic surgeon that offers breast lift surgery in NYC will ensure that your aesthetic results will last for as long as possible. Some women have enjoyed the results of their breast lift surgery for decades.

But if there is one big factor that needs to be mentioned, it’s that breast lift procedures do not stop the natural process of aging. If you are still reasonably young and have many years ahead of you, just expect that gravity may take its toll on your breasts again in the future.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for a Breast Lift in NYC?

We encourage all of our independent and wellness-driven patients to schedule a personal consultation with Viva Eve’s surgeons. We strive to find a health plan that works best for your needs, taking into account your individual body and preferences. That is why we will never turn anyone away from our wellness and plastic surgery services.

That being said, there are some patients that are perfect candidates for a breast lift in NYC. Typical breast lift candidates at Viva Eve are experiencing:

  • Sagging breasts after a life-changing event
  • A desire for breasts that are higher up on the chest, giving a more firm and round shape
  • Plenty of excess skin and fat that exaggerates the saggy look
  • Issues with self-image and confidence around the breast area
  • A desire for smaller or more evenly matched nipples

We also recommend that all of our breast lift patients are in good general health and are not currently breastfeeding. If you are still nursing a child, you should wait at least 12 weeks after the nursing has stopped since the breasts can still change shape and size many times over the course of the post-pregnancy period.

What is the followup and recovery like for a Breast Lift?

While breast lift surgery is one of the safest and most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures, following your surgeon’s instructions after the surgery is essential to recovery. Once you’re able to return to your daily activities, you’ll find that your breasts generally feel less sore with each passing day.

Post-operative care is just as important as your surgical lift itself. Good post-operative care can reduce the chance of complications and improve healing. Great post-operative care will allow you to see an even greater result than what you had initially expected before the surgery. 

It is important to follow your doctor’s advice at all times and he or she will advise you when showering and the like is appropriate.

What are the potential costs for a Breast Lift?

Since cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, insurance doesn’t cover the cost. It is best to answer potential costs during a face-to-face evaluation, as pricing varies depending on your specific case and the level of cosmetic adjustment you want. For pricing information on specific procedures, please contact our Cosmetic Concierge at 212-988-2111.

Breast Lift Benefits & Risks


We take a close look at your unique body type, shape, and aesthetic needs to determine which one of our wellness-focused plastic surgery services will best serve your ultimate desires. While every procedure is different, you can expect to benefit from the following advantages of an advanced breast lift surgery in NYC:

  • A lift of your drooping breasts, getting rid of south-pointing nipples.
  • There is an opportunity to reduce the size of your areolas, which may offer a more aesthetically pleasing look depending on the shape of your body.
  • Your clothes and accessories will fit better on you – and your smile will come back!
  • Breast lifts can be combined with breast augmentations for ultimate results.
  • Gain beautiful cleavage to heighten your confidence.

Breast lifts are a popular procedure for moms who are looking to add a little something special to their Mommy Makeover plans. A lot of women experience suddenly sagging breasts after birthing and breastfeeding a child. Once the nursing process is over, the first thing you should do is treat yourself the way you deserve to be treated.


Every plastic surgery procedure offers a certain number of risks because of the nature of surgical procedures. Surgeries always carry a small risk of infection, but our Viva Eve clinics are designed with top-notch sanitation and safety features to make our locations some of the most sterile surgical centers in New York.

Here are some specific risks that a breast lift procedure may also pose:

  • Swelling, bruising, and soreness can be side effects of surgery and may be felt during recovery.
  • Some patients carry a risk of excessive bleeding, in which case, your doctor will create a special care plan for you.
  • Not all wounds heal cleanly, and there may be a slight alteration in your aesthetic look throughout the course of healing.

Historically speaking, breast lifts carry a very low risk of complications, and most side effects are expected and manageable. If you are worried that you will experience a certain difficulty during the recovery process, we encourage you to advocate for your comfort and needs.

Any of our Viva Eve staff members are here to be a listening ear.

Are there related procedures to a Breast Lift?

A breast augmentation is another breast enhancement procedure typically included in a Mommy Makeover. They are frequently combined based on the patient’s goals and needs with surgery.  While a breast lift is a surgical procedure used to lift and reshape breasts that have lost their firmness and contour, breast augmentation increases the volume of your breasts through implants of fat grafting. Both are a great choice for any woman who has lost volume due to post-pregnancy weight loss and/or breastfeeding.
