WEST PALM BEACH PATIENTS ASK, “WHAT IS A BREAST LIFT?”
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that addresses sagging. Like other parts of the body, breasts begin to sag during the aging process. For many women, this also happens following pregnancy. The skin on the breast may become stretched out, or you may notice that breasts feel deflated, flattened, or less firm. Breast implants alone will not solve the problem of sagging breasts. Instead, they must also be lifted. Breasts can change for a variety of reasons; the most common are a result of:
- Age – the skin begins to produce less collagen and elastin, which leads to sagging.
- Genetics – Not only does genetics play a role in the size and shape of breasts, it can also play a role in how well
- the skin retains elasticity.
- Weight – Significant changes in weight can lead to sagging.
- Gravity – Women with larger breasts tend to deal with more sagging.
A Breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure that will lift the breasts, giving the nipple a more desirable location and make the breasts appear more youthful. Lifts can be combined with augmentation (implants) to give patients a total breast makeover.
During a breast lift, Dr. Jarial will begin by removing excess skin, and then lifting the area to make it tighter in a more appealing way. The final result is correct nipple alignment and firmness and fullness that have been lost over the years.
