Breast Lift Surgery in Princeton, New Jersey

As a natural side effect of aging, our skin begins to produce less and less collagen, which is the essential protein responsible for keeping the skin tight and youthful-looking. In addition to lost collagen, women who have been pregnant and/or breastfed often experience some sagging or loose skin in the breasts afterwards, leading to an aged appearance. To restore the appearance of the breasts and help enhance women’s self-confidence, Dr. Jill Hazen offers breast lift procedures in Princeton, New Jersey.

What a breast lift can do

This procedure lifts the breasts by removing excess skin to achieve a perkier, firmer, more youthful-looking breasts with discreet scars. The main benefits of a breast lift include:

  • Restoring volume to the breasts
  • Improving breasts that feel deflated or flat
  • Balancing breasts that are uneven in size or shape
  • Correcting nipples that are positioned very low
  • Improving sagging breast skin
  • Correcting breast tissue that has migrated down

Before & After

Breast lift surgical details

During a breast lift, Dr. Hazen removes stretched-out excess skin, lifts and re-shapes the breast tissue, and may also re-position the nipple to achieve a balanced result. Every patient has a unique breast shape and size. Because of this, Dr. Hazen will meet with each patient during a consultation prior to the procedure to learn about expectations and concerns to ensure a comfortable treatment and amazing results. 

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes 2 to 3 hours, unless another procedure (such as adding implants) is being done as well.

There are different types of incisions which may be used, including an anchor incision, lollipop incision, donut incision, or crescent incision. 

Recovery and results

Most breast lift patients need about a week of recovery. During this time, you will wear a surgical bra to help with swelling and healing. (After wearing the surgical bra for one week, you’ll need to wear a support bra for several weeks.) It’s critical during your recovery that there is no pressure applied to your chest. You can expect some bruising, swelling, and soreness for about two weeks. Dr. Hazen will let you know when exercise may be resumed. You will have a follow-up appointment a week after your visit. Results can be seen a few weeks after the procedure, with final results becoming apparent about six months after your surgery.
