Over time, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight changes and aging can take their toll on a woman’s breasts. If you feel your breasts have changed in shape and size and that you’d like to have fuller, perkier breasts than you do now a Breast Lift can be the solution.
It is natural for the breasts to lose their firmness, because with time the skin loses its elasticity and ligaments stretch out. However, you don’t have to live with all of the issues that this has caused. A breast lift can rejuvenate your appearance and enhance your figure, making it look more youthful and feminine. New statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show breast lifts have grown 75% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1.
Why you want a breast lift
- Your breasts sag.
- Your breasts have lost their fullness.
- Your breasts have become flat, elongated, or pendulous.
- The skin around your breasts and areolas has become stretched out.
- Your nipples and areolas point downward.
- One of your breasts is lower than the other.
- You are happy with their size.
Complimentary scar therapy
Scarring can be a big issue when it comes to breast lifts. You may be hesitant about undergoing the procedure just because you don’t want to be left with extensive scarring. You may even be prone to hypertrophic scars. Dr. Levine takes your concern seriously. He’ll show you where your scars will be during your consultation. You’ll receive extensive instructions on how to care for your incisions so you can help them heal properly. This may include massaging the scars with a silicone cream and keeping your incisions out of the sun. You’ll also see our scar therapist, a fully licensed nurse who specializes in scarring. She’ll assess your scars and provide further details on what you can specifically do. This is all included in the cost of your surgery. As a result, our patients experience minimal scarring, and with proper care, so will you.
Although your incisions can look large at first, their location makes them ideal for fast healing, and with proper care will likely fade to a scar so faint they’ll be invisible.
The most effective method of lifting
Dr. Levine only performs the anchor lift, a procedure that involves an incision around the areola, vertically down to the breast fold, and horizontally in the breast fold. In the 30 years of performing breast lifts, Dr. Levine has found the anchor lift to be the most effective method of recontouring sagging breasts. The technique maximizes the fullness in the upper pole, reshaping the breast for the perkiest and most buoyant improvement. No other technique is as effective.

I received a magazine with varies plastic surgeons featured in it. Since I was interested in doing some plastic surgery myself, I decided to do some consultations.
I was not really impressed when I met the doctors that I read about in the magazine. When I started doing more research I discovered that plastic surgeons usually finish school at approximately 30 years old, and work as junior surgeons for 5 years before they can perform surgery on their own. After doing consultations with them, I feel like they don't have enough experience. Most clinics that I walked into seemed very glamorous but that wasn't important to me, I was looking for experienced surgeons and good results.
I am a business owner and laser technician. I have met a few clients who have done surgery with Dr. Levine and was impressed so I booked a consultation with him. When I walked into his clinic I felt like I was walking into a real doctors clinic.
Dr. Levine looks very confident and you can tell he loves what he does. He is very honest and straight forward and really cares about his patients. I booked surgery with him for a Brazilian but lift and tummy tuck and am very happy with my results. The scar isn't noticeable and my bum looks very natural. After that I had a breast lift. He did great! I recommend him to my clients and everyone!
I did consultations with 4 different doctors before I met Dr. Levine. When I met Dr. Levine, I liked him right away! He was very honest and straight forward. I booked my surgery after 3 weeks for a Tummy tuck and Brazilian but lift. He performed surgery for me in September of 2014. He did a great job! The scar is not noticeable and my bum looks very natural. After one year I decided to do another surgery for a Breast lift. He did a great job! I am 49 years old and my breasts look nice and perky like an 18 year old! This is the first time in my life that I have ever written a comment. I decided to write a comment because I think Dr. Levine is an amazing doctor with great experience. I think sometimes people expect miracles. Before I did surgery with him, I read his comments. Other peoples comments did not effect my decision, I used my own judgement and I am glad I did! I am very happy!From Rate MDs

If you have saggy breasts and want to make them perkier and larger, this surgery may be suitable for you.
This is a common question we get from patients. Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine whether you need just implants, or if a breast lift is better. Generally speaking, if your breasts sag mildly to moderately, then breast augmentation alone may be sufficient. If you have severe sagging and want to have bigger breasts, then you’ll need implants.
An immediate improvement may be visible, but you should wait about 6 months to a year for the optimal results to appear.
Complications related to any surgery exist with this one as well. These include risks related to anesthesia, infection, poor healing of incisions, and fluid accumulation. Other risks that are related to this particular surgery include the following:
- Permanent numbness
- Undesirable aesthetic results
- Breast asymmetry
- Potential partial or total loss of nipple and areola
- Possibility of revisional surgery – this risk is reduced by having the breast lift performed first, then the breast augmentation performed at a later date.
