Questions to Ask your Breast Lift Surgeon
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from weight fluctuations, pregnancy, aging, gravity, heredity and more. A Breast lift can rejuvenate drooping, sagging breasts by trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissues to achieve an uplifted, firmer contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your breast profile and provide you with a higher level of self-confidence.
