Breast Lift – Get Breasts That Defy Gravity With Some Help!
There is a definite solution for sagging breasts. Mastopexy or breast lift procedure is a cosmetic surgery that takes care of uneven sagging breasts, loss of volume, nipples that droop and stretched areolas. A breast lift can help you improve the shape of your breasts and regain the youthful projection.
There are 3 different breast lift techniques that are used during the mastopexy procedure and these are differentiated based on the pattern in which skin is removed and the resulting scar. Depending on the degree of your sagging, the amount of excessive skin and your breast size, your surgeon will decide which technique to use.
The Traditional lift – during this technique, the incisions are made around the nipple’s border. A vertical incision runs down from the nipple to the breast folds and there is another incision under the breast fold. Due to its outline, it is also called the anchor lift. If you have very droopy breasts, you will be the best candidate for this breast lift technique.
The Vertical lift – in this technique also, the incisions are made around the nipple and the vertical incision which runs down from the nipple’s border to the folds under the breast. Due to its shape, this incision is also known as the lollipop lift. This is an ideal choice for those women who have only moderate degree of sagging.
The Circumareolar lift – during this procedure, the skin that is removed is limited to the area surrounding the nipple only. This is also referred to as the Benelli or the donut incision. This allows the surgeon to give your nipples elevation but the internal breast tissue is not rearranged. The results with this are not dramatic, making this the right choice for those who are suffering from mild to moderate sagging.
Let’s learn a bit more about what makes you the ideal candidate for a breast lift:
If your breasts differ from each other in firmness, volume or size.
If your breasts are hanging below the folds; your nipples point downwards. Your surgeon may suggest combining breast reduction surgery together with a lift to help you achieve your desired results.
If you have decided to get a breast lift, it is recommended that you:
Undergo the procedure after you are done with your pregnancies and breast feeding. This is because any consequent pregnancy will stretch the breasts reducing the volume and the results of your lift will not sustain.
Discuss the breast tissue rearrangement procedure your surgeon will use in order to give you the lift. The more you are aware of the procedure, the more likely you will have realistic expectations.
Ensure going through as many before and after photos that you can at the surgeon’s during your consultation. This will give you an idea of the exact size and projection that your surgeon will give you. Ask for photos that are taken after a year or two so you can also be aware of the scarring.
Last but not least research well to engage a well experienced and board certified surgeon for your breast lift procedure.
