Top Reasons to Get a Breast Lift

With cosmetic surgery on the rise, breast lifts are getting quite a bit of attention nowadays. Commonly referred to as a mastopexy, a breast lift can help rejuvenate your breasts and give them back that perkiness you used to have in your youth. As the perfect choice for ladies who wish to reclaim their old breasts without adding extra volume, breast lifts can finally allow you to go braless without any worries.

With that in mind, what exactly are breast lifts, and why would they be such a fantastic choice for your needs? In this blog, you will discover why Dr. D’Souza recommends this procedure.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is designed to reposition the areola and nipple so that they are located at a higher point of your breast. Additionally, excess skin is removed. The goal of this procedure is to create a more youthful look to the breasts while decreasing skin sagging.
This surgery is common among women whose breasts have grown saggy with pregnancy as well as women who have lost a lot of weight. When excess skin makes the breasts look deflated and droopy, a breast lift can help restore their appearance.

What Can a Breast Lift Achieve?

There are several benefits that a breast lift can bring you, including:

  • Reduction of Back Pain
    Breast lifts are usually performed for cosmetic purposes, but there are also health benefits to getting this procedure. The most notable effect is the reduction of back pain. During a breast lift, the weight of your breasts is redistributed correctly on the chest, which can significantly improve your posture. Since your bra will no longer have to do the entire job, the strain on your shoulders should be reduced, and this can decrease pain.
  • Refreshing Aesthetics
    Sometimes, you may want to improve the shape of your breasts just to refresh your look. As you age, the collagen and elastin in your skin diminish, which can cause your breasts to start sagging. A breast lift can remove unappealing, excess skin to rejuvenate the shape of your breasts.
  • Reduced Irritation
    When you have sagging breasts, the excess skin can subside in the area underneath your breasts, making you feel uncomfortable. Moreover, the chafing, mixed with high humidity levels, can lead to the appearance of rashes. Breast lifts can reduce the amount of skin chafing you experience, therein decreasing overall discomfort.
  • Restores Areola and Nipple Proportion
    If your breasts are sagging, you probably notice that your areolas are more prominent than ever before. This is quite common as the skin stretches. Breast lifts can bring them back into proportion so that the area is perfectly balanced.

Combination Breast Lift Procedures

Breast lifts can be combined with other procedures for additional benefits. As such, at Iconic Plastic Surgery, you can benefit from the following combination procedures:

  • Reduction and Lift
    While so many women desired large breasts over the past several years, we are now noticing a downtrend: women want smaller breasts instead. However, breast reduction leaves a lot of sagging skin behind, which can look unappealing if left that way. This is why the procedure is often combined with a lift, which can definitely improve breast appearance.
  • Augmentation and Lift
    Breast lifts and augmentation also go hand in hand, especially when you don’t want the skin removal to lead to volume loss. Adding implants to a lift can offer fuller breasts, making them look perkier and symmetric. Plus, if you already wanted to get their size fixed, doing it through this combo could spare you from having to go through recovery twice.

Verdict: Is It Worth It?

Getting a breast lift can change various aspects of your life, from improving your health to making your chest look much more attractive. Whether you choose to remove the excess skin or you simply want to make some further modifications, a breast lift can make you feel “lifted” in both body and spirit.
