A Breast Lift Can Really Make A Difference

A Breast Lift Can Really Make A Difference

The first thought that usually comes to mind when women are thinking about improving the appearance of their breasts is breast augmentation.  Although breast augmentation can provide outstanding results for women seeking to improve the size and shape of their breasts, it is not always for everyone. A breast lift (also known as mastopexy) does not involve implants at all but instead lifts and tightens the existing tissue to make the breasts look firmer, perkier, and more youthful.

Patients can regain the appearance of fullness and shape of their breasts. If you do not want breast implants, that doesn't mean that there isn’t a breast surgery that can still give you the results you wish for. A breast lift is a great alternative, and yes, it really can make a difference. 

How Do I Know If I Want A Breast Lift Or Breast Augmentation?

The first thing you should think about before you consider which type of breast surgery you want is what concerns you have with your breasts and what you wish to have changed. If you want your breasts to be smaller with less volume, breast reduction surgery may be the best option for you. If you want to make your breasts bigger and dramatically improve their appearance and shape, you might want to consider breast augmentation. If your breasts have succumbed to the forces of gravity and your breasts have sagged over time, a breast lift may be the best option for you to avoid implants. Sagging can result from many factors including breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, genetics, and aging. 

Benefits Of A Breast Lift

Although a breast lift procedure is as commonly discussed as augmentation or reduction, it can make a huge impact. Something as simple as improving the shape of your breasts can improve your entire body contour. Your clothes will fit better giving you more confidence. Newly enhanced, firmer breasts can do a lot to improve a woman's self-esteem. After your surgery, your nipples will be better positioned and your areolas will be smaller. Improvements to the shape and firmness of the breasts can help a woman feel more feminine in her own skin, a truly priceless result that will last for years to come. 

How Does A Breast Lift Work?

A breast lift surgery aims to uplift and improve the shape of a woman's breasts. The incision for this procedure may include one around the areola, a vertical incision down to the lower breast from the areola, and a long line crease incision under the breast. Your surgeon will decide which particular incision pattern best suits your individual case best. Once your surgeon makes the incisions, he or she will then remove the excess skin and fat and reposition the nipple and areola to a more natural position. The remaining skin is tightened and the incisions are closed. Breast lift surgery does require patients to be under general anesthesia and does require some downtime to allow the breasts to heal.

Following your breast lift procedure, you should expect a recovery period of two to four weeks. Your plastic surgeon will cover specific care instructions and will provide you with the necessary support garments to help your body heal. A breast lift procedure is a great way for women to improve the shape and appearance of their breasts without requiring implants to increase their size. Youthful, perkier breasts can help you feel confident in knowing that you will be on the path to looking and feeling your absolute best.

Q: How do I know if I want a breast lift or breast augmentation?

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
