Why might a woman need a breast lift?
- Posted on: Mar 15 2021
Women often find that their breasts help them feel feminine, so when they are less than perfect, women might feel self-conscious about their appearance. This is especially true when sagging of the breasts occur with age, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. In order to combat these changes, women are encouraged to book a consultation visit with Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Sasson Plastic Surgery and ask about the breast lift procedure.
How a breast lift procedure is performed
The breast lift is used when patients are experiencing sagging breasts. The nipples may face downward and excess skin might allow the breasts to hang lower than desired. During the breast lift procedure, Dr. Homayoun Sasson will remove excess skin on the upper portion of the breast to reposition it further up on the chest in a more youthful appearance. In some cases, women might have their areola and nipples repositioned at the same time for better balance and harmony for the final appearance.
Can a breast lift address volume loss?
Sometimes, women who have had larger breasts during pregnancy and breastfeeding and then have their breasts return to their original size may notice extensive volume loss. This cannot be corrected with a breast lift. Instead, women will want to ask the doctor about combining breast augmentation with their breast lift to address all issues at once. Breast augmentation incorporates the use of an implant to add volume or size to the breasts. Breast augmentation can help in restoring volume loss or adding size to the breasts when compared to their original size.
What about scarring?
During the surgical procedure, Dr. Homayoun Sasson will strategically place incisions in areas where they can be easily disguised or hidden with clothing. This is important to many of our patients who do not want it to appear obvious that they’ve had “work done.”
