Breast lift (mastopexy) may be just what you need if you would like to look younger and more vibrant. Countless women have undergone breast lift surgery at our Fairfield practice in order to enhance their figure and even to look years younger.
Let's take a moment to consider the basics of breast lift surgery and who it might benefit most.
About Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery is a breast enhancement procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of breasts that are drooping or sagging. After undergoing the procedure, a woman's breasts will be pert, firm, and perky again.
General Candidates for Breast Lift Surgery
Good candidates for breast lift surgery are women who have breasts that droop or sag in an unwanted way. They should be in good overall health and not suffer from any kinds of health conditions that would make a surgical procedure a potential risk to health and wellness.
Ideal for Age-Related Drooping and Sagging of the Breasts
One of the most common reasons why women undergo breast lift surgery is due to the natural aging process. The effects of time and gravity will lead the breasts to sag to a certain degree, especially if a woman has large breasts. Breast lift surgery is an ideal way to reduce sagging and give a woman a youthful and enhanced bustline.
Good for Women Who Have Lost a Lot of Weight
Losing a great deal of weight can lead to excess skin that hangs and sags. While the weight loss is most pronounced around the lower abdominal area, it can also affect the breasts. Like other body contouring procedures, breast lift surgery is the only way to remove the unwanted skin folds and sagging.
Excellent for Mommy Makeovers After Giving Birth and Nursing
Having a child can be very rewarding, though it can affect your overall body contour in major ways. In addition to causing stretchmarks and loose skin around the abdominal area, breastfeeding and the weight loss after childbirth can cause a woman's breasts to sag. Breast lift surgery is ideal for mommy makeovers, which restore a woman's appearance to what it was prior to pregnancy.
Ideal for Issues with Breast Asymmetry
Sometimes woman experience issues with uneven or asymmetrical breasts. In these cases, breast lift surgery may be the ideal option to consider. Breast lift surgery will remove tissue from one breast in order to make overall appearance, size, and shape of each breast even.
Can Be Combined with Breast Augmentation and Reduction
You may have noticed how versatile breast lift surgery is given all of its uses. In addition to the above, breast lift surgery can be combined with other breast enhancement procedures.
For instance, a breast lift can be combined with breast reduction surgery to reduce the size and drooping of very large or pendulous breasts. It's also possible for breast implants to be placed as part of a breast lift surgery in order to increase breast size and enhance the overall shape of the bustline.
