When a woman has low, sagging breasts, there are plenty of issues that can arise from the condition that negatively impact her life. For example, she may find that her back and shoulders hurt because the weight is too low and moves around too much throughout her daily routines. She may feel as if she is not attractive to her partner and may be too embarrassed by her sagging breasts to enjoy the beach. She may wear restrictive bras in an attempt to lift the breasts and hold them close to the ribs, leading to chafing and soreness from the straps. A breast lift procedure can address all of these issues and then some.
The Causes of a Low Bust Line
Some women are simply genetically predisposed to having low breasts, causing the breasts to grow low on the chest wall. For others, age, weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding can contribute to sagging breasts. The elastic quality of breast tissue can also be impacted by certain types of cancer treatments and medications. No matter what caused the issue, a breast lift can resolve it.
The Surgical Technique Used to Lift the Breasts
Surgical approaches tend to differ depending on the situation. Your procedure will be tailored to suit you. During a typical breast lift procedure, excess skin is removed and the tissue is tightened. The breasts and nipples are moved to a higher position. The main goal is to raise the breasts in order to give them a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
Recovering from a Breast Lift
Patients are instructed to wear a sports bra for three to four weeks after the procedure. As your body heals, you will be able to return to more and more of your previous responsibilities and activities. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results.
