Why Get a Breast Lift?

Conventional body sculpting involves a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. However, some of the changes our bodies experience are as a result of causes beyond unhealthy food choices and lack of exercise. The specific body parts we desire to change may also lie beyond the regions where diet and regular exercise have tangible effects, such as the case of breasts.

In such situations, getting a cosmetic procedure is a fast and incredibly effective way of regaining your perkier, younger look. The straightforward process produces fantastic results, and with the skilled doctors at our clinic, we are your ideal partner in your search for your dream silhouette.

Are You an Ideal Candidate?

Breast lift surgeries have two main effects; reducing sagging and repositioning the nipples. The doctor checks for some things in determining if the operation suits you, and here are some of them:

  • You have unwanted sagging. If you have experienced a loss of shape and or volume, or your breasts have gotten longer and flatter.
  • If your nipples have fallen below the creases of your breasts due to a lack of support in your bosom.
  • If you have downward-pointing nipples.
  • A lack of proportion between your breasts and areolae due to stretching.
  • If you experience a lack of proportion as a result of one breast falling lower than the second.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding have a significant impact on your breasts and are one of the causes of drooping. You should have a breast lift after your last pregnancy for the surgery to prove a long-term solution. However, you can still comfortably breastfeed after surgery, but one should wait until the nursing period is over as this procedure may lead to reduced milk production in some individuals. This surgery has the best impact on smaller, sagging breasts as larger or heavier ones remain likely to decline in future.

Preparation Phase

Breast lifts have three main phases, the preparation phase, the actual surgery, and the recovery phase. Preparation phases include having a consultation with the doctor. This stage avails all the essential information you need for a successful procedure. You get to know what medication to avoid when to stop drinking or smoking, as well as vital details regarding the recovery phase. A physical exam at this point determines suitable treatment options and may involve taking pictures to form part of a strategic approach for the best outcome. Discuss your expectations with the doctor at this stage and ask any necessary questions.

The Breast Lift Surgery

Each case is unique, and this demands tailor-made solutions for patients at our clinic. The main idea is to remove extra skin in the area and reshape the breast. The doctor administers anesthesia, which relaxes you and ensures that you remain comfortable throughout. The physician then proceeds to make incisions in around the areolae – area surrounding your nipples, and around or along your breast creases. Shaping breast tissue under the surface may at times involve placing stitches under the skin. If you so desire, the doctor may resize your areolae. The excess skin on your breast comes off, and the skin brought together with the incisions finally closed using a suitable method.

This straightforward surgery takes between two and three hours depending on the complexity or nature of individual cases.

Post-op Recovery Phase

Once the surgical process is complete, you will have to wear a compression garment or surgical bra for a part of the recovery period. This protective cover has to remain on for the period recommended by the doctor. For the first two or three days, get as much rest as necessary. A smart approach involves having someone to help you with daily tasks around the house, and this preparation gives you the chance to get enough rest and kick off the healing process in the best way possible. After a short duration, you may have to maintain a reasonable degree of activity to aid blood circulation and stimulate healing.

During the recovery period, avoid smoking and consuming alcohol, as well as a medication like aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and NSAIDs as they trigger bleeding and may hamper the healing process. You should also keep all treated areas away from direct sunlight and have it appropriately covered for the best outcome.

The Benefits of Getting a Breast Lift

This procedure has a myriad of benefits, including the following:

  1. A youthful, perkier look is a guaranteed confidence booster. You get to enjoy a life free of anxiety about your looks. Any discomfort about your looks subsequently leads to low self-esteem and, in turn, messes your zeal for life’s fun moments.
  2. With better outfits comes the rebirth of the spring in your step. You no longer skip clothes you want to wear at the store but enjoy virtually unlimited wardrobe options.
  3. Some clothes such as swimming costumes are a better fit if you have a fuller bosom. You can now have real fun with all manner of activities such as visits to Chicago’s scenic beaches or your friends’ pool parties. The right cosmetic procedure frees you to a fuller life.

All factors considered, breast lifts roll back the years and are worth every penny.
