Summer is here. And, as the truncated song goes, the time is right for… Not for dancing in the street, you see. But the time is right to look your absolute best at the beach.
Have the effects of age and/or having children, made your breasts appear deflated? Are they sagging with stretched skin, have they lost shape and volume due to pregnancy or weight gain? Have you lost that confident feeling you once had? Have you resorted to a push-up bra for that full chest appearance?
Well, nothing flatters the figure of women at any age quite like shapely, supple breasts. Dr. George Solomon at the Solomon Cosmetic Center in Palm Harbor, FL, has an answer for you. A cosmetic surgery procedure known as the breast lift. For some women, breast renewal through a breast lift is all it takes to look younger or simply feel more confident.
What is a breast lift?
A breast lift is a procedure designed to reshape the breasts to attain a firmer, perkier appearance. Breast lifts are commonly performed after breastfeeding or significant weight loss to restore the breasts to their prior appearance. Additionally, breast lifts also provide some women the opportunity to enjoy a more desirable breast shape for the first time. Breasts with nipples that point down or reach below the infra mammary crease (the skin fold below the breast) may benefit from a breast lift. This technique may also be appropriate for some cases of breast asymmetry.
How is a breast lift performed?
A breast lift is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. It is achieved by removing excess tissue and repositioning the nipple. Large, stretched areolas can also be reduced in size and reshaped during a breast lift procedure. The incisions used to perform a breast lift will depend on the amount of breast tissue requiring reshaping, the desired outcome and any additional procedures that will be performed. Incisions may be located around the areola only, in the infra mammary crease, or in some combination of these sites.
Aftercare and Recovery
You will experience swelling, discoloration, and tightness, around the treated areas. You may also experience numbness in the nipple and areola areas. Surgical drains inserted during the procedure will be removed a few days after surgery. You will need to wear a special support bra for few weeks after the surgery and sleep on your back. Most patients return to work within a week and can resume normal activities including light exercise after several weeks. Aside from a large shift in weight or pregnancy, the results of your procedure should remain stable. However, the natural aging process will continue to change the shape and size of your breasts over time.
