While many women are concerned about the aging appearance of their faces and necks, the process of growing older is affecting every part of the body, from the hands to the breasts. Medical science hasn’t yet found a way to interrupt the effects of time and gravity on the body, but there are ways to mitigate them. When your breasts are sagging, a breast lift procedure can restore a more youthful shape and contour.
Signs a Breast Lift Can Help You
You might wake up one day and notice that your breasts look like they’ve started to sag, but the transition definitely won’t happen overnight. Your body will change gradually at its own pace, so there’s no magic age when a breast lift is most recommended. Your number of pregnancies, time spent breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, and the elasticity of your skin will all contribute to the rate at which your breasts will sag. As the skin stretches and gravity helps it along, the breasts will sag lower and lower. One day, you might notice this change for yourself.
If you suspect you might be eligible for a breast lift surgery, read through these tell-tale signs before you schedule your consultation with a plastic surgeon:
- Lost volume and firmness from your breasts
- Sense of frustration about the sagging of your breasts
- Flatter, elongated or pendulous breasts
- Your nipples point downwards
- Your nipples hang below the natural crease of your breasts
- Visibly stretched skin around your breasts
- Enlarged areolae surrounding the nipples
- Asymmetry or unevenness in your breasts
The Qualities of a Good Breast Lift Candidate
Beyond the physical frustrations that breast lift patients experience, there are other elements that can make a prospective patient into an actual patient. You should also be in good overall health, not smoke, and have realistic expectations about your breast lift results. In addition, you should have a good idea of the result you’d like to accomplish, whether you’d like to simply lift and reshape the breasts or add volume with a potential breast augmentation. A credentialed plastic surgeon can help you to determine whether you’re a good candidate for breast lift surgery and what approach could best achieve your results. Schedule a consultation to get more information on the procedure.
During your consultation, your surgeon can discuss the results he or she would expect from a breast lift or a lift with breast implants. Either way, he or she will use the VECTRA 3D Imaging system to modify a 3D photo of you with the changes he or she plans to make. This helpful tool provides the ultimate way to really see if breast lift surgery can make a dramatic change for your body and achieve your desired results.
How Patients Benefit From Breast Lift Surgery
Women today are busy. Women are often concerned about the amount of time they will need to fully recover from breast lift surgery and whether they can squeeze it into their busy schedules. While it will take a few weeks until you can do all of your daily activities again, you will heal gradually and start taking on tasks one by one until your full recovery. Although you may have days that are frustrating, remind yourself that a breast lift is an investment in yourself. The benefits of this procedure far outweigh the few days of discomfort.
After the patient’s breasts are reshaped and lifted, a woman at nearly any age can see these benefits for herself. The damage done by pregnancy, age, nursing, gaining and losing weight can all be corrected with a breast lift, giving you a noticeable boost to your body contour. A new, more youthful look has a direct impact on patient self-esteem and self-image, letting you feel comfortable in your body again. After recovery, you may also see an immediate change in how your clothes fit, how easy it is to shop for new bras, and how much younger your silhouette appears. Get your body back through a breast lift procedure. Every moment of recovery time will be worth the years of benefits to come.
