Spring is the time of year when women start to look at ways to improve their bodies for summertime. Sagging breasts is a common concern, and many women believe that the issue has to be corrected with breast augmentation. If you are happy with the size of your breasts and only wish to help them look perkier, you may be a good candidate for a breast lift.
What is a Breast Lift?
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that elevates the breast position. Your breast position changes for many reasons, such as pregnancy and aging. Some women have breasts that naturally hang lower on the chest. Removing small amounts of skin and breast tissue using a special type of incision allows your surgeon to lift the breast tissue.
How Can a Breast Lift Help Me?
If you are curious to know how mastopexy will change the way that your breasts look, stand in front of a mirror and hold your arms up over your head. Although this is not an exact technique, it does give you an idea about how breast lift surgery is intended to change the look of your breasts.
Will a Breast Lift Change the Size of My Breasts?
Your breasts may look larger after mastopexy, but this is not a result of changes to the breast tissue. Breast size may appear to have changed because the breast tissue is more compact after the breast lift.
What If I Also Want Larger Breasts?
Women who want to lift their breasts and add volume may be candidates for a breast lift and augmentation procedure. We perform the lift and enlargement during the same surgery. Your downtime may be slightly longer with this procedure versus a breast lift alone.
