When Is a Breast Lift the Ideal Solution?
Having beautiful breasts is not all about size. The shape and overall appearance of the breasts are also determining factors. If you have sagging breasts, poor breast shape, or a lack of projection, a breast lift may be your ideal solution. At Blackhawk Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen J. Ronan offers some of the best and most natural-looking breast lift results Danville has to offer.
What Is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that can reshape sagging breasts to make them perkier, rounder, and more attractive. During breast lift surgery, the surgeon will remove excess and stretched skin and will reshape the breast tissue. The surgeon will then raise the areola and nipple to better suit the new contour of the breasts.
The surgeon can also reduce the size of the areola of the breast if it is large or stretched, in order to achieve a more proportional and natural looking breast.
Good Candidates for a Breast Lift
There are many reasons why women choose to undergo breast lift surgery.
To restore the youthful appearance of the breasts – A large number of women have sagging breasts right from their teenage years. Over the years, this tends to affect their self-confidence. Breast lift surgery provides these women with an opportunity to get address drooping breasts and enhance their appearance to improve their self-confidence.
To restore breast shape after pregnancy – Pregnancy and breastfeeding take a toll on a woman’s breasts. Hormonal changes and breastfeeding over a long period of time can leave the breasts sagging and stretched. Even though a woman may have had firm breasts before pregnancy, they will not naturally return to their prior form after giving birth. A breast lift can undo the unwelcome changes that occur during pregnancy and restore the appearance of the breasts.
To improve the breast contours after weight loss – Losing weight can also result in a loss of breasts volume or noticeable breast sagging with the presence of loose skin. A breast lift can remove the excess skin and create a more proportional and youthful breast contour.
If your nipples point downwards – If the skin at the base of the breasts begins to stretch out, the weight of the breast will cause the nipple to get pulled downwards. A breast lift can restore the nipple to its original position.
If your breasts are asymmetrical – If you are not happy with the shape of your breasts or if you feel that your breasts are asymmetrical, you can opt for a breast lift to achieve a more symmetrical shape.
