Why might a woman need a breast lift?
Time takes a toll on the body and skin. More than most areas of the body, the breasts are subject to many stresses in a women’s life. Breast feeding, collagen loss in the skin with aging, and weight gain change the shape and firmness of the breasts over time. A breast lift turns back the clock to a more youthful figure.
What is a breast lift?
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, can reverse the problem of sagging breasts by reshaping the breast tissue, tightening the skin, and elevating them to a more youthful position. If desired, the size of the areola can also be reduced during the same procedure.
What are the benefits of a breast lift?
A breast lift can restore the breasts to a firmer and more aesthetically pleasing shape. The benefits of this procedure are not limited to the breasts alone; it improves the overall figure of a woman’s body. The more youthful and uplifted breasts help to bring the rest of the body into proportion.
What does a breast lift not do?
A breast lift does not significantly reduce the size of the breasts like a breast reduction. For women that want to increase the size of the breasts or develop cleavage should consider breast augmentation. No plastic surgery procedure should be considered a weight loss procedure or a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle.
