Have your breasts become droopy and lost their firmness? Don’t be alarmed. Droopy breasts that have lost their shape can be fixed with a breast lift. Breast lift surgery is a popular procedure that can be done on its own or in combination with breast augmentation. But what are some of the benefits of a breast lift.
What is a breast lift?
A breast lift (mastopexy) is designed to lift and shape sagging breasts. The sagging is usually due to the effects of pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or aging. During the procedure extra skin is removed and the surrounding tissues are tightened in order to reshape the breasts. The nipple/areola complex is also re-located if it’s too low.
Benefits of a breast lift
A breast lift makes the breasts look perkier and fuller, as it adjusts the elevation and contour of the breasts. Loss of skin elasticity causes the breasts to sag and droop, but mastopexy lifts them to a higher position on the chest wall, and the increased projection makes the breasts look perky.
Mastopexy also improves body proportions, as the breasts look more proportional with the rest of the body after surgery. The increased projection makes the figure more attractive.
Most women that choose to undergo a breast lift are very satisfied with the results. They generally experience a significant boost in their body image, and feel more confident in their appearance. That’s why breast lift surgery is often done by women wanting to reshape their breasts after pregnancy.
