You’re not happy with your breasts and you’re not sure what to do about it. You could choose a breast augmentation, but you’re not sure that is the procedure for you. Breast augmentation is recommended when you are looking for an increase in cup size, you want more volume, and you would like to modify the shape of your breasts. If your breasts are not balanced in appearance, breast augmentation is a popular option. However, if your breasts are sagging and have lost their youthful perkiness, a breast lift is the best alternative that can give you the boost that you need.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that is designed to lift your breasts when time, gravity, or pregnancy has been dragging them down. It is common with aging or after pregnancy and breastfeeding to see the breasts begin to droop. The surgeon can remedy the situation through a breast lift procedure, offering you dramatic results that will make you feel like you have a new set of breasts. This is not the procedure for you if you want larger breasts. When you’re looking for a considerable increase in size, breast augmentation is advised, although some women do choose to have a breast lift and breast augmentation at the same time.
What to Expect During a Breast Lift
The surgeon will want to ensure that you do not experience any discomfort during your outpatient procedure. Speak with the surgeon whether anesthesia or intravenous sedation will be used. The surgeon will make an incision in the nipple area and remove any excess skin or tissue that is causing your breasts to sag. Your breasts will be raised to a higher position. All incisions will be closed and you will be sent to recovery. Expect to wear a sports bra after your procedure to minimize swelling and discomfort. Be sure to follow your surgeon’s care instructions in order to ensure a successful recovery. You will have restrictions in physical activity until your breasts heal.
