Most people may think a breast lift is only a solution for aging breasts. Instead, sagging and deflation in the breasts can be caused by a variety of factors, including pregnancy, breastfeeding, dramatic weight fluctuations, and in some cases, puberty. These life changes can cause the breasts to lose their perkiness and fullness, creating the appearance of deflated breasts. A breast lift (mastopexy) is a breast enhancement procedure that improves or restores the shape and appearance of the breasts. This surgical procedure trims excess skin, tightens glandular tissue, repositions the nipple-areola complex, and elevates the position of the breasts. The incisions used during your breast lift will depend on the level of ptosis (sagging) you would like to have corrected.
A breast lift is very effective for improving breast shape, but if you would like more dramatic improvements in breast volume and projection, you may want to combine your breast lift with breast augmentation. Breast augmentation can add significant volume and shape using breast implants. Recovery after a breast lift varies depending on the level of correction performed, but most patients can return to regular activities after one week.Learn More About Breast Lift View Photo Gallery
Women consider breast implant exchange to adjust the volume and shape of their already augmented breasts to better suit their needs and cosmetic desires or when they experience an implant-related complication, such as rupture, capsular contracture, or implant displacement.
Breast implant exchange removes the unwanted or damaged implant and replaces it with healthy implants. These replacement implants can be larger, smaller, or the same size as your previous ones. This secondary breast surgery allows women to fine-tune or repair their augmented breasts whether they experience a change in aesthetic preference or weight fluctuations and pregnancies have changed how they perceive their enhanced breasts. Incisions are often made along the inframammary fold to remove and replace the implants. Breast implant exchange can be combined with a breast lift to tighten and elevate your breasts if needed.Learn More About Breast Implant Exchange Photo Gallery
