When to Consider a Breast Lift
May 15, 2017
You have a problem with your body. It’s your breasts. You don’t want to pump up the volume. You are happy with the size that you are. Your problem is the fact that your breasts are hanging down to your belly button. You’ve tried everything you can think of to give them a boost. You’ve focused on upper body strength and your arms in the hopes that toning would somehow tighten up your bust. No amount of exercise in the world can make your breasts snap back into a youthful position. You found lotions that are supposed to tighten your skin, but creams are not enough to give you a perkier bust. Your bras won’t do the job either. They only create the illusion that your breasts are where they should be. As soon as you take off your bra, you are back to where you started. It’s time to consider getting help from our plastic surgeon. A breast lift can give you the bust you used to have.
When Is it Time for a Breast Lift?
Think about a breast lift when you do not want to enhance the size of your breasts, but you need to lift them up until they are no longer sagging. It’s common for women to struggle with sagging breasts. You may find that this is a concern after losing weight. Even though you have trimmed off the excess pounds and your breasts have become smaller, the skin around your breasts has been stretched out. A breast lift can take care of that problem for you.
You could also consider a breast lift after having children. Pregnancy can put your breasts through the wringer. They swell while you are expecting and continue to stay larger as long as you are nursing. Once you stop, you may notice that your breasts have started to droop. If you have had more than one child, your breasts may sag even more. Sagging breasts are common in middle age as menopause sets in. Hormonal changes cause the skin to be less elastic. The end result is drooping breasts. You can change that with this procedure.
What Can You Expect with a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is intended to resolve any problems with sagging breasts. While the exact procedure varies from patient to patient based on their needs, it typically consists of sculpting and lifting the breast tissue to provide a more youthful appearance. If desired, Dr. Pryor can also remove excess skin in the area and raise the areolas to a higher position.
