3 Signs You Might Benefit From Breast Lift
Breasts play an important role in how feminine and sexy a woman feels. But pregnancy, nursing, weight loss and aging significantly affect the breasts’ appearance over time.
Mastopexy or breast lift has helped countless women recapture perky, youthful-looking breasts. The procedure is designed to restore breasts to their former glory.
If you are wondering whether you could benefit from breast lift, the best way to know for sure is to meet with a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Byun for an examination and consultation.
Here, Dr. Byun reveals three signs that you could benefit from a lift.
Saggy or Droopy Breasts Bother You
The first telltale sign that you could benefit from breast lift is that you have issues with breast sagging or drooping. It is natural for the breast skin to lose elasticity and breast tissue to stretch out over time. Rapid weight fluctuation and hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy and nursing can exacerbate the sagging.
Breast lift tightens the skin and elevates the tissues higher on the chest wall to restore the breasts to a more youthful and perky position.
Your Breasts Look Flat, Elongated or Shapeless
Pregnancy, weight fluctuations and the natural aging process can rob you of the beautiful breast shape you once enjoyed. What were once round or teardrop-shaped breasts can look flat or shapeless after kids or losing weight. This might cause you to feel embarrassed when wearing swimsuits or other styles of clothing because you do not want to attract attention to your breasts.
Not only does breast lift elevate the breasts, it also reshapes the breast tissue to create a more appealing shape. Breast lift alone does not significantly affect breast size, but you can always choose to have saline or silicone implants placed during your breast lift.
Your nipples and areolas point downward
Another obvious sign you could benefit from breast lift is that your nipples and areolas point downward or sit at the bottom of your breasts (below the breast crease, where the breasts meet the torso).
During breast lift, the nipple-areolar complex is lifted higher on the breast mound in a more youthful arrangement. If desired, oversized areolas can also be reduced in size.
