Rejuvenate Breast Volume and Shape with a Breast Lift
Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. We can perform a breast lift, or mastopexy, at Jain Plastic Surgery in Columbus, GA, to raise and reshape sagging breasts.
A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume, saline or silicone breast implants inserted in conjunction with a mastopexy, can increase both the firmness and size of your breasts.
The best candidates for a breast lift are healthy, emotionally-stable women who are realistic about what the surgery can accomplish. Optimal results are typically achieved in women with small, sagging breasts. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in heavy breasts. These candidates may be better suited to a breast reduction.
Many women seek a breast lift because pregnancy and nursing have left them with stretched skin and less volume in their breasts. If you are planning to have more children, it may be a good idea to postpone your breast lift until you have completed your family. While a breast lift usually doesn’t interfere with breast feeding, pregnancy is likely to stretch your breasts again and offset the results of the procedure.
You should also keep in mind that a breast lift will not keep your breasts firm forever; the effects of gravity, pregnancy, aging, and weight fluctuations will eventually take their toll again. Women who have implants along with their breast lift may find the results longer lasting.
