What makes breasts beautiful? Ask most expert cosmetic surgeons, and they will tell you: it’s all about their shape and contour.
Sadly, factors like childbirth, genetics, and age can sag the breasts, pushing many women to search for solutions to this aesthetic concern. If you’re ready to love the way your breasts compliment your physique again, it may be time to consider a breast lift.
In this article, you’ll discover all you need to know about this rejuvenating procedure.
Benefits of the Breast Lift
Women who want to improve their breast shape can benefit greatly from undergoing a breast lift. During the 1-2 hour procedure, the sagging excess skin is removed and the nipples are raised.
After a breast lift, the youthful contour of the breasts is restored. Patients can expect their breasts to feel firmer, perkier, and look more aesthetically pleasing. When the breasts are lifted, it gives the appearance of a smaller waistline. In other words, patients can enjoy more flattering body proportions and a more feminine overall figure.
To improve the aesthetic proportions of the breasts, patients also have the choice to reduce the size of areolae which may have been stretched out over time.
Breast Lift vs. Augmentation
A breast lift is an ideal solution to correct concerns such as:
- Lift drooping breasts
- Raise downward-pointing nipples
- Contour a perkier shape of the breasts
A breast enhancement will remedy the following insecurities:
- Correct asymmetry in breast size
- Inflate loss of volume
- Create a rounder, youthful shape
It’s very common to combine the two procedures for optimal results. That way, women who are looking for more dramatic results can achieve their aesthetic goals by both lifting and increasing the size of the bust.
How To Know If a Breast Lift Is Right For You
If you check yes for a majority of these concerns, it may be time to schedule a consultation with your preferred cosmetic surgeon.
- Are your breasts beginning to sag and sit lower on your frame? (yes/no)
- Do your nipples point downward towards your stomach? (yes/no)
- Do you wish your breasts were perkier? (yes/no)
- Have you lost the fullness of your breasts after childbirth? (yes/no)
- Have you lost a large amount of weight, resulting in less volume in the breasts? (yes/no)
- Are your nipples beginning to stretch and increase in size? (yes/no)
After the procedure, which takes about 1-2 hours to perform, patients are either bandaged or given a surgical bra before they are free to go home.
The First Week
During the first week of recovery, patients are prescribed pain medications to relieve any soreness and swelling they may be experiencing. To ensure an optimal recovery, it’s important to rest and avoid any strenuous activity throughout the first few days.
The First Six Weeks
Most surgeons do recommend that you take it easy within the first six weeks of a breast procedure. Patients must continue sleeping on their back for at least the first month after a breast lift. During this period, it’s also essential to limit exercises that involve the upper body or jumping.
Throughout the first few months after the breast lift was performed, the swelling will gradually begin to go down. Two months after the procedure, patients will be able to go back to wearing underwired bras again.
How to Ensure Optimal Results After Your Breast Lift
