Women who are not looking to enlarge their breasts, but want to make them younger-looking and more attractive, are instead having breast lifts to achieve the look they want. Studies indicate breast lifts have increased dramatically in popularity in recent years, with more and more women selecting this procedure.
If you are interested in having a breast lift, contact Transformations Plastic Surgery in Rockford, Illinois. Doctor Landon Pryor, one of the region’s top cosmetic surgeons, will discuss this procedure with you to determine if a breast lift is the right aesthetic procedure for you.
What Is a Breast Lift?
Known as a mastopexy, a breast lift helps patients with:
- Uneven or sagging breasts.
- Decreased breast volume.
- Drooping nipples.
- Stretched areolas.
Breast lifts offer patients the opportunity to recreate their youthful shape and lift breasts that have become saggy during the natural aging process. Thousands of women have breast-lift surgery every year because it is both safe and effective. And the vast majority of patients are happy with their new look.
Sagging breasts often come as women age, especially after they have had children. Breast lifts allow women to return their breasts to the condition they were in before age and gravity took over.
Breast lifts can be combined with other surgical procedures. Doctor Pryor reviews these options with each patient individually to determine the best treatment plan.
Benefits of having breast lift surgery include:
- Improved breast shape, symmetry and projection.
- More youthful-looking breasts.
- Increased self-confidence. You will look and feel great, in clothes and without clothes.
Some other things to consider about breast lifts are that results may fade over the years. Lifts can leave scars, but they are easily hidden by bras and swimwear. If you become pregnant after having a breast lift, your results may diminish after you give birth.
Am I Candidate?
Here are some common reasons why women have breast lifts:
- They are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts, which have begun to sag.
- Their breasts need more substance and firmness.
- Their areolas and nipples point down too far.
- Their breasts are different sizes.
Breast lifts tend to be more effective on smaller breasts, but larger-breasted women may be good candidates for other procedures.
Breast lifts are also better in women who are done having children. If you plan to have children, it’s better if you wait until later in life to undergo a breast lift. That’s because pregnancy often stretches breasts and reduces volume, which can compromise the benefits achieved by lift surgery.
With the skilled breast lifts performed by Dr. Pryor, patients can expect their breasts to remain younger-looking and without droop for decades.
Results can be lost from gaining a significant amount of weight or going through a pregnancy.
Breast lifts are designed to elevate and reshape breasts that have become loose and saggy. After your procedure, you will notice your breasts are higher on your body and feel much firmer.
Major complications from breast lift surgery are rare. Doctor Pryor will review potential risks with you before you decide to have surgery.
All surgeries carry some risk, including bad reactions to anesthesia and potential infection. But the vast majority of patients suffer no issues during surgery and no major side effects.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your sagging breasts and want to return to a younger-looking you, it’s time to consider breast lift surgery. Contact Transformations Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation and begin the journey toward regaining a more youthful figure.
