According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lift was the fifth most popular cosmetic procedure in 2021 and 2022. Women choose breast lift for countless reasons. The most common motivation involves age-related changes, pain associated with drooping breasts, and a desire to look and feel better about their breasts and body. Dr. Avron Lipschitz at Athena Plastic Surgery has restored a perky bust with the breast lift procedure for many women throughout Florida and nationwide.
1. Drooping Breasts Caused by Aging, Weight Loss, and Pregnancy
The breasts go through many stages in a woman’s life. The skin tissue thins with age as it loses collagen and elastin. The breasts are often the first body area to lose volume during weight loss, and the hormone changes associated with pregnancy can drastically alter the breasts’ appearance. Breastfeeding may leave some women struggling with deflated, drooping breasts as well. Breast lift can elevate the bosom by removing excess skin, tightening tissues and muscles, and raising the nipples and areolas for a proportionate and youthful shape.
2. Sagging Breasts May Worsen Back and Neck Pain and Cause Skin Irritation
Drooping breasts can put extra pressure on the shoulders and neck, causing or worsening pain. Wearing a supportive bra may not improve these symptoms because the bra straps dig into the shoulders, attempting to hold the breasts at their desired height. Breast lift can relieve the pressure and pain of sagging, heavy breasts. The stress of the drooping tissues can make it difficult to exercise and perform some activities, such as weightlifting and running. Breast lift lightens the load, allowing women to pursue more activities they enjoy.
Skin irritation is another common complaint because the drooping breasts rub against the upper abdomen and under the arms and may lead to chafing and infections. Breast lift removes the excess skin causing these issues.
3. Look and Feel Better with A Perky Bust
Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their body and wardrobe. Many women seek breast lift because they’re frustrated with their appearance and feel of their sagging breasts. The procedure can restore self-confidence and helps you feel younger and more attractive, especially in swimwear or lingerie.
The breast lift procedure focuses on raising the breast position on the chest and removing excess skin and glandular tissue. It will not address concerns with the upper portion of the breasts. If you struggle with a deflated appearance or want a rounder breast shape, breast augmentation with breast lift may be necessary to achieve your desired results.
