For many women, their breasts are associated with womanhood. It is what makes them feel feminine and confident in their own skin. However, over time, many changes can happen to a woman’s body, especially if she has experienced dramatic weight gain and loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. A common complaint is that of sagging breasts. When the volume of the breasts change with time, it can result in sagging that causes the breasts to point downward. Skin laxity is also a reason this change may occur. In situations such as this, many women may be told about the benefits of the breast lift procedure.
How does a breast lift work?
The breast lift is often considered in women who have sagging breasts that make them feel self-conscious about their appearance, especially when in situations where they may be showing off their body, such as swimsuit season at the pool. The breast lift is achieved by removing excess skin to reposition the breasts higher on the chest for a more youthful appearance. It may also include repositioning the nipples as well for symmetry. It is important that women understand that the breast lift does not address volume loss. In situations such as this, Dr. Rachel Walker of the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas may recommend combining the breast lift with breast augmentation. This includes the insertion of a breast implant at the same time the breast lift is performed to add volume and size to the breasts simultaneously. In doing this, women can address various concerns with a single surgery, while reducing cost and recovery time when compared to performing the procedures separately.
