What Are my Breast Lift Options?

Not every woman is comfortable with the size or shape of their breasts. Life may provide circumstances where the shape or size of the breast may leave an individual feeling uncomfortable in their body. There are a number of situations where the the breast may not take on the ideal shape one desires, and among them are age, pregnancy, and fluctuations in weight.

While this is a common situation many women have to deal with at some point in their lives, you can rest easy knowing that there is a solution. Through the power of a breast lift surgery, you can get assistance in obtaining the beautiful breasts you desire.

Sometimes, even young adults and teenagers deal with the problem of sagging breasts, and the underlying factors leading to this can be anything from genetic to age related. Depending on how far the breasts have sagged, it is possible to get surgery to restore your breasts to have more youthful contours.

Cosmetic surgeons accomplish this by removing excess skin from around the breasts, reshaping existing breast tissue, and even correcting the size of the areola or nipple to ensure that the final shape of the breasts is more shapely, perky, and symmetrical to the rest of your body.

One of the most common reasons why women need breast lifts is due to pregnancy. More prevalent in women who have multiple pregnancies, the changing size of the breasts often results in extreme sagging. In some other cases, people also find that they have been born with asymmetrical breasts.

Fluctuating weight might also lead to sagging breasts that require a breast lift surgery to return to their normal shape. However, the most important factor behind going in for this surgery is how you feel in your own body. If you feel that your breasts are making you unhappy and self-conscious, then a breast lift surgery may be a solution worth considering.

What You Need To Know About Breast Lift Surgery

Depending on how far your breasts have sagged, there are various surgical techniques that may be recommended to you. It is important to know that for those surgeries that require much more extensive reconstruction, there exists a chance that post-surgical marks may be left behind.

At the end of the day, it is your doctor who can tell you which surgery would be ideal for your body shape. You must ensure that you perform the proper background research to find a cosmetic surgeon who is not only highly skilled, but also has an established rate of success performing the surgery.

The first of the four lifts that may be recommended to you is called the crescent lift. It is ideal for those who have minimal sagging. You may notice some post-surgical marks left behind, but they will remain hidden within the curves of your body.

The next lift, known as the donut lift, is great for those who experience mild sagging. A single surgical mark may be left behind after this surgery. The lollipop lift is perfect for those with moderate sagging. Such a surgery may also call for a need for more in depth repairing.

Finally, the arena lift is for breasts that have extensive sagging. You can expect to return to work within a week after this surgery. Often used in conjunction with breast augmentation, it may not be ideal to engage in heavy exercise for about a month.
