Best Candidates for Breast Lift
The best candidates for a breast lift are women who are unhappy with the current position of their breasts. For women who would like to return their breasts to a more youthful position as well as add volume, a combination breast lift with augmentation could be the best option.
Generally healthy women who are able to maintain a stable weight make the best breast lift candidates. If you’re uncomfortable with sagging breasts that have lost their shape, you could be an ideal candidate.
There are different degrees of ptosis that a breast lift could help correct. With the potential to address everything from a slight droop as the result of age and downward pointing nipples to stretched skin or one breast that sits lower than the other, a breast lift could help correct your breast position and help you achieve the silhouette you desire. If your nipples are positioned lower than the natural crease below your breasts, breast lift surgery may be right for you.
What to Expect
During your breast lift consultation, Dr. Cuber will discuss the methods of breast lift surgery. Together you will discuss your concerns, how they can best be addressed, and what results you can realistically expect to achieve. Your consultation is also the time to ask Dr. Cuber any questions you may have about the surgery, recovery or results.
In breast lift surgery, the most common place for an incision to be made is around the areola. Once the incision has been made, the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped. This can result in improved firmness and a more pleasing breast contour. The nipple and areola will be repositioned to suit the new shape of the breast. Excess skin from the breast may also be removed.
Your Breast Lift Recovery and Results
Immediately following surgery, you should able to see a noticeable difference from your breast lift. Final results, however, may not be apparent for several months due to swelling. Wearing bandages after surgery can help reduce swelling and may speed up healing time. A small tube may also be placed under the skin to drain excess fluid from the area during recovery.
Many women feel comfortable returning to their normal routine roughly a week after surgery, but you will need to avoid strenuous activity for several weeks. Dr. Cuber will provide you with a comprehensive care plan for your individual recovery and achieving your best results.
If you’re unhappy with your sagging breasts, a consultation with Dr. Cuber can be an excellent first step toward creating your ideal figure and returning your breasts to a more youthful position. Contact us online or over the phone at (888) 713-7814.
