Is Breast Lift Surgery Right for You?
Women experience a number of unique situations that have an impact on their overall physique. Pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, and weight loss are just a few that can alter the size and shape of the breasts. Often, the changes that take place lead to feelings of dissatisfaction and, sometimes, frustration. If your once-firm and perky breasts are now deflated and saggy, you may be interested in learning more about breast lift surgery. Your Las Vegas plastic surgeon Dr. Alexander is happy to provide information that will help you discover how you can regain confidence in your appearance.
What can a Breast Lift help?
Breast lift surgery is formally referred to as mastopexy. This procedure helps lift the breasts to sit higher on the chest by removing skin and re-positioning the nipple resulting in a more “youthful” look. With the firmness and higher positioning of the breasts, patients feel much more satisfied with their shapeliness. It is important to note that breast lift surgery does not increase the size of breasts. Chances are you will still wear the same bra size. However, breasts may appear enhanced as a result of their new position. If size is also a matter of importance to you, Dr. Alexander can discuss the addition of breast implants into your surgical plan.
How long will results last?
In addition to the end-result in terms of shape and size, an important consideration in choosing breast lift with or without implants is how long the results will last. This is somewhat of a difficult question to answer because every woman is different. Generally speaking, younger tissues are more resilient, which means results could be expected to last longer when breast lift surgery is performed at a younger age. However, there are numerous factors to discuss with your physician. In most cases, the results of breast lift surgery remain noticeable for several years.
If you are considering if a breast lift is right for you, the next step is to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic surgery and discuss your wishes.
