Kick Off 2018 with a Lift and Breast Implants in New York

2018 is upon us. A brand, new year to make something new happen in your life.  Maybe you are not happy with your appearance.  Maybe due to age, child birth or weight loss, your breasts sag or droop and so you may want to consider a breast lift.  While that is being done, maybe you’d like to have implants to fill out or re-shape your breasts.  Dr. Fiorillo can give you a lift and re-shape.

What to Expect During Surgery

As an outpatient, with general anesthesia, lasting from 2 to 4 hours, Dr. Fiorillo will perform the surgery by making one of three types of incisions. Then, depending on the size of the breasts, the breast tissue is lifted into desired position, excess skin is trimmed, the nipple area is lifted as well, layered stitches aid in keeping the lift in place and the implants are put in place.  The incision is closed, leaving minimal scarring usually in the crease under the breast or around the nipple area.  The breasts are then wrapped with gauze dressing.

What To Expect After Surgery for Breast Implants in New York


After the surgery, be prepared for bruising, swelling, numbness and discomfort, which will disappear in a few days. There may be a need to wear an elastic bandage or a surgical bra.  After a few days, the surgical bra can be replaced with a soft support bra to be worn all day and night for about a month. In about one to two weeks, stitches will be removed and many patients can return to work at that time.

The implants most asked for are Gummy Bears.  Don’t let the cute name fool you, they are seriously one of the favored implants used by top plastic surgeons, like Dr. Fiorillo.  

Whatever you choose, Dr. Fiorillo and his staff are happy to help you decide what is right for you.  Call us at 845-623-6141 to make an appointment to discuss a lift for your new year.
