When it comes to procedures involving your breasts, the first thought that may come to mind is breast augmentation. You don’t have a problem with the size of your breasts. Your main concern is the fact that your breasts have really begun to sag. You are afraid they will touch your belly button soon. You’ve tried to handle the problem with bras that fit well, but you still have to deal with droopy breasts. If you are really unhappy with the way your breasts look, a breast lift could be the right procedure for you.
When to Consider a Breast Lift
You are not alone when it comes to sagging breasts. Many women experience this problem as they get older. It is all tied in to changes in your breasts over time. If you have had major changes in your weight over the years, your breasts will be affected. You may also be dealing with droopy breasts after pregnancy, especially if you have had more than one pregnancy. Every time that you are expecting and nursing, your breasts swell only to go down again when you are no longer breastfeeding. Your breasts may not snap back into shape. You may also find that your breasts have begun to sag more as you get older. That is due to a decrease in collagen, the substance that makes your skin elastic, in your body. If life has been dragging down your breasts, a breast lift can help you do something about it.
What Happens During a Breast Lift Procedure?
A breast lift is a procedure designed to lift and reshape the breast tissue. Excess skin, fat, and tissue will be trimmed away. Your areolas will be raised and your skin will be tightened around the area. Patients are usually able to go home after the procedure is completed. During your consultation, our plastic surgeon will explain the procedure to you in more detail and let you know what you can do to prepare.
