You know that age is going to catch up with you at some point in your life. You can’t avoid the changes that come with the passing years. You were ready for wrinkles and a gray hair or two. You even accept the fact that your figure isn’t quite as trim as it used to be. However, you weren’t ready for sagging breasts. One day you looked in the mirror to see that your breasts were headed to your waistline. You’ve tried using bras to look your best, but there’s no hiding your droopy bust when the bra comes off. It makes you really self-conscious. If you want to give your sagging breasts a boost, consider a breast lift.
Is a Breast Lift Right for You?
Sagging breasts are a common problem for women as they get older. There are many changes throughout your lifetime that can take a toll on your breasts. Pregnancy is one of the leading causes of sagging breasts. While you are pregnant and nursing, your breasts swell to a much larger size. Once you are done breastfeeding, they shrink. In many cases, they never snap back to the perky position they had before you were pregnant. If you have gained weight and lost weight, this can cause your breasts to droop as well. Breasts often begin to droop as you hit middle age because your body is producing less collagen. This causes the skin to lose its elasticity. If any of these situations apply to you and have made your breasts droop, a breast lift could be the best alternative for you.
What Happens During a Breast Lift?
When your breasts begin to sag, there is nothing that you can personally do to change your situation. Supportive bras are your only option. If you want something permanent that will make your breasts look more youthful again, our plastic surgeon can assist you with a breast lift.
While the exact procedure varies between patients based on their particular needs, it typically consists of lifting and resculpting the breast tissue, giving your breasts an appealing shape once again. If needed, our plastic surgeon can also remove excess skin to further enhance your results.
