Several common factors can cause the breasts to change over time. Your breasts may begin to sag or droop due to events such as pregnancy or weight loss, or simply due to the normal effects of aging. The breast lift is a surgical breast enhancement procedure that is designed to elevate a woman’s breasts to a more youthful position.
Considering Breast Lift Surgery in West Virginia?
Each year, many women choose to undergo breast lift surgery as a means to restore the youthful appearance of their breasts. Breast lift surgery is especially common with mothers who have experienced some drooping or sagging of the breasts due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. Women who have lost a large amount of weight may also need a breast lift to correct the position of their breasts.
Age and gravity are other big factors that can contribute to sagging of the breasts. As the skin around the breasts loses elasticity, it can cause the breasts to point downward or begin to droop. This is a normal effect of aging, but can be corrected with a breast lift.
During your consultation, Dr. Paine will listen to your expectations and analyze your condition to determine if a breast lift is right for you. Women who wish to increase the size of their breasts in addition to correcting sagging may benefit from supplementing their breast lift with breast implants (augmentation).
After Your Breast Lift
Dr. Paine will apply dressings and bandages to your incisions once your surgery is complete. You will be required to wear a special support bra to help minimize swelling. You should be ready to take at least a week off work, but should wait 4-6 weeks before heavy lifting or other more strenuous tasks.
As your body heals, the changes in your breasts will become more apparent. You will notice a firmer, tighter silhouette and a perkier position.
