Augmentation or Lift, which should you get with a My Mommy Makeover in Pearl River, NY


After having a baby or two or three, the breasts go through many changes, with weight increase and loss (whether from pregnancy or not), this can cause significant changes in the breast tissue. Then add aging and these conditions bring on drooping and sagging.

Breast Lift

If you are happy with the size of your breasts, but they are drooping you will want to consider a breast lift. The lift focuses on positioning of the breasts by trimming away excess skin and tightening the supporting tissue that holds the breasts up. The areola may have also stretched and/or drooped, so they can be reduced and repositioned. This is a good solution for misaligned breasts, misshapen breasts, nipples located in the breast crease, to name a few reasons. For the procedure, there are three incision types that Dr. Fiorillo will choose. First, there is small-incision mastopexy, used for patients with small breasts and minimal sagging. Second, is an incision around the areola and down to the breast crease. Third is the same as the second, but with a curved incision at the breast crease. After the incisions are done, the breast tissue is reshaped, the nipple and areola are moved higher onto the breast and layers deep within the breast are are stitched to support the breast lift.

Breast Augmentation

If you would like to add to the volume of your breasts, then you will want to consider an augmentation. If Dr. Fiorillo feels that you need a lift as well, you may receive a lift with the augmentation. But if your breasts are currently in healthy, youthful condition and you would just like to increase their size, an augmentation will do. Breast augmentation is done with the insertion of a special saline filled pouch either over the pectoral muscles or under the muscles. The incisions can be made in inconspicuous places like in the armpit, in the crease on the underside of the breast, or at the areola. Saline implants can even be inserted endoscopically through an incision in the navel area. Dr. Fiorillo’s preference for implant are Gummy Bear implants, for durability and safety. He has been using them for many years and has many, many satisfied patients.
