If you are feeling down about your sagging breasts, Avante Plastic Surgery can assist you with breast lift plastic surgery. Breast ptosis (sagging) commonly occurs following pregnancy, aging, and dramatic weight loss (e.g., after procedures such as Lap-Band or gastric bypass). A breast lift can restore the normal shape and position of the breast, as well as add support to the breast tissue. Many women find that a breast lift, along with breast augmentation, can give them the results they have always dreamed of!
What are the Most Common Causes of Sagging Breasts?
As you get older, your skin loses elasticity and your breasts can sag, particularly if you have larger breasts. If you have recently been pregnant or experienced extreme weight loss, your breasts can also sag from loose skin. A breast lift will not impact your ability to breastfeed, and your breast should function normally after the procedure. If you are wondering whether you could benefit from a breast lift, put a pencil or pen under your breast. If your breast holds the pen in place, you would be a great candidate for breast lift plastic surgery.
What is the Breast Lift Procedure Like?
The most common breast lift procedure is a mastopexy. This is when the surgeon repositions the nipple higher on the chest wall. Depending on your situation, the length of the surgery may vary, especially if you are also getting breast augmentation at the same time. You can expect the procedure to consist of:
•A thorough initial consultation with Dr. Ahmadi and his team of breast lift experts. You will discuss your ideal finished product and go over any medical history concerns.
•Dr. Ahmadi will discuss the procedure from start to finish and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
•You will be put under general anesthesia, so you will not feel pain or be aware during the procedure.
•A breast lift can take about 2-3 hours, depending on your specific situation.
•You should be able to return to your normal activities after a few days of recovery. You may be limited from heavy lifting for a period of 4-6 weeks.
