When it comes to the aging process, gravity always wins. If gravity has taken a toll on your body, particularly your breasts, there is a procedure that can help defy gravity and give you the ideal, lifted appearance. At My Cosmetic Clinic, conveniently located throughout NSW, Australia, we offer mastopexy, also referred to as a breast lift, so that you can reach all of your aesthetic goals, look good in whatever you choose to wear, and walk into a room with confidence.
What Is the Right Age for a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is versatile. It can help women in many different age groups achieve their aesthetic goals. Women ages 18 to 50 and beyond may qualify as candidates who can benefit from this procedure and all that it has to offer.
Young Women Aged 18 to 25
For many women, breast tissue is fully developed at age 16, but for others, their breasts continue to grow and develop well into their 20’s. Young women ages 18 to 25 whose breasts are fully developed and want a more lifted appearance can undergo this procedure.
Women Aged 26 to 35
Many women ages 26 to 35 begin to feel dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts not only because of the aging process but because of pregnancy and nursing. Pregnancy causes many different changes in your breasts, as does nursing, and as a result, they can feel deflated once you finish nursing.
Women in this age range can undergo a breast lift to help restore the appearance of their youthful, pre-pregnancy breasts and even combine this procedure with a breast augmentation if they so desire. A consultation with a plastic surgeon is the best way to determine if combining these two procedures would be in your best interest.
Women Aged 36 to 45
Every year after the age of 25, the body produces less collagen, a protein that is essential for youthful-looking, lifted skin. While many women notice the effect of this decreased production on their face, it affects the breasts as well and can cause sagging. A breast lift can help women between the ages of 36 and 45 address such sagging skin and in doing so, increase their confidence.
Women Aged 46 to 50
Many women wait until their mid-forties to undergo this procedure and experience all of the benefits that it has to offer, but they’re not too late. This age range still qualifies such women as potential candidates for treatment.
Women Over 50
Some factors decrease the chance that a woman over the age of 50 would qualify for this procedure, but that doesn’t mean that they are excluded entirely. If you are a woman over 50, we can help determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. We will review your health history, discuss your concerns, and evaluate your condition to see if this procedure is right for you.
There some other considerations that need to be taken into account to determine if this procedure is right for you. An initial consultation is an essential first step in this process because it helps us learn more about you, your health, your goals, and how we can help you reach those goals.
More than your age, your current state of health is the most important factor in determining if this procedure is right for you. The best candidates are those who are in good health, at a healthy weight, and who don’t qualify as obese. Additionally, the best candidates do not use nicotine or tobacco or have a history of breast cancer or bleeding or clotting disorders.
What Can a Breast Lift Treat?
A breast lift can treat many different problematic breast conditions, including problems with symmetry, shape, and loose skin.
Symmetry is important when it comes to achieving the most aesthetic breasts. Different factors can cause asymmetrical breasts, including genetics, breastfeeding unevenly, or scoliosis. During a breast lift, the surgeon can address and correct breast asymmetry so that they are even and symmetrical. If your concern is asymmetry, you can discuss it with the surgeon during your initial consultation.
Excess skin on your breasts can cause sagging and drooping. This skin often results from volume loss in the area due to age and other factors. Whatever the case, this procedure can remove excess skin and tighten the rest of the skin in the area. This aspect of the procedure can help your breasts feel more youthful, your bras fit better, and your clothes look better.
Your Breast Shape
Shape and position are important when it comes to the most aesthetic breasts. If you are not happy with the shape and position of your breasts, you can discuss your concerns with the surgeon during your initial consultation and learn more about how this procedure will help you reach your aesthetic goals.
