Many women have confusion over what types of breast augmentation are available. You may be thinking that the only kind of breast augmentation is breast enlargement or reduction. In decades past, this was certainly the case. Today, however, there are other forms of breast enhancement to meet the needs of women dealing with other breast issues. One such procedure which is gaining in popularity is breast lift surgery. Breast lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure which corrects sagging breasts. Women who suffer from uneven breasts also find this procedure beneficial.
What Is Involved in Breast Lift Surgery?
Breast lift surgery is usually recommended for women who are tired of sagging or uneven breasts. It is also recommended for women who deal with drooping nipples, or disproportionate areolas. The breast lift surgery can successfully recreate the former shape and size of a patient’s breast. This procedure is helpful for individuals who are not attempting so much to change (increase or decrease) the size of their breasts, but rather restore their breasts to their former shape and size.
Why Consider a Breast Lift
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is usually considered by women who have experienced a negative change in their breasts. These changes can be brought on by pregnancy, breastfeeding, age, weight loss, or weight gain. All of these life factors can change the size and shape of breasts. Many women find that these changes leave them feeling less than confident about their bodies. Although a breast lift will not affect your health either positively or negatively, many women find that the results of the surgery have a huge impact on their emotional well-being and their sense of self-confidence.
This procedure can improve the shape of breasts, their projection and in many cases, the symmetry as well. Breasts can be restored to a more youthful appearance after a breast lift surgery. Many women find that they are more confident in their clothes and have an easier time fitting into the types of outfits that best reflect their personality.
What Is Involved in This Procedure?
This type of breast enhancement surgery is performed using general anesthesia. Your doctor will discuss with you if you are a good candidate for this type of procedure. Your surgeon will plan your procedure to involve a minimum of incisions and scarring. Through expert techniques, your surgeon will remove excess skin, relocate the nipples and areola to reflect your former breast shape. The skin above the areola will be brought lower so that overall the breast is lifted to a more ideal position. Scarring in this procedure is minimal. Most women who undergo this procedure never lose any sensation in their breast or nipple and still retain the ability to breastfeed in the future.
