Has your bosom begun to droop as a result of pregnancies, weight fluctuations, and age? Would you like to improve your figure by lifting and reshaping your breasts? A breast lift from My Cosmetic Clinic in Balmain, NSW, could be just the solution you’re looking for. Although it won’t increase your cup size, a lift can perk up breasts that have begun to sag and restore them to a more natural position on the chest.
How Long Does a Breast Lift Typically Last?
A lift involves a reshaping of your breast tissue, and the results will likely last you a lifetime. Although it’s true that your breasts, along with the rest of your body, will continue to age and evolve, a breast lift offers long-lasting results.
What Does a Lift Involve?
A breast lift involves the removal of any excess skin and the reshaping of a patient’s existing breast tissue. Depending on the extent of the reshaping, the nipple may be repositioned on the breast as part of this treatment. For patients who want to increase the size of the breasts in addition to lifting and reshaping them, an implant can be incorporated into the treatment. A breast reduction treatment can also be combined with a lift.
A breast lift is often referred to in medical terms as a mastopexy. Lift treatments are most often performed for cosmetic reasons, but they can also help patients who have undergone a mastectomy or who need reconstruction following trauma or an accident.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Patients who have undergone a lift often enjoy breasts that are firmer, more shapely, and rest on the chest in a more natural position. Improving the shape and profile of the bosom can bring your entire silhouette into better balance and proportion.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Lifts are an outpatient treatment performed under anesthesia. In advance of your treatment, we’ll talk with you about the approach we’ll use, which may include incisions around the areola of each breast and sometimes down the underside of the breast as well.
You’ll be able to head home after your treatment, and most patients spend a couple of days relaxing before returning to work and their regular schedule. Patients are often advised to wait a couple of weeks before resuming vigorous exercise.
What Advantages Are Associated With a Lift?
An Improved Silhouette
By reshaping the breasts and lifting a sagging bosom back into a more natural position, a lift can restore balance to your overall silhouette. Many patients appear more youthful and curvy. The profile of your bosom will be more flattering. And although your breasts won’t technically be larger, they may appear larger simply because they’ve been reshaped.
Say Goodbye to Chafing
Do you experience chafing under your breasts or along your bra line? This usually develops as a result of excess skin on the chest. A lift gets rid of that excess skin and helps minimize uncomfortable irritation.
One of the biggest advantages of a lift is the long-lasting change it creates in your bosom. Many of our patients have been unhappy with their bosom for years. Maintaining a stable weight after your treatment will help maintain your results, but you won’t have to take any other special steps to keep up your new look.
Improved Self Confidence
Patients who have undergone a lift treatment feel great about themselves again. They often look younger and healthier. They also look forward to getting dressed in the mornings again.
After a lift, patients often say they feel more comfortable being active. Once your breasts are in better proportion to the rest of your figure, your supportive undergarments will be more effective.
A Custom Treatment
A lift is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. Each patient comes to us with individualized goals and concerns. We spend time listening to our patients and learning more about their lifestyle and goals. We then develop a customized plan that is designed to meet their unique needs and goals.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you’re interested in finding out if you’re a good candidate for a breast lift, the first step is to schedule an initial consultation with the friendly professionals at our practice. We’ll review your medical history and talk with you about your cosmetic goals and concerns. We’ll work with you to determine if a lift will best achieve what you’re hoping to accomplish. There are several signs that you may be an especially good mastopexy candidate.
Your Breasts Have Undergone Physical Changes
There are several physical signs that you may be a good candidate. If one breast is noticeably lower on the chest, or if your areolas have become stretched out, a lift could help. Nipples that face downward or rest below the fold beneath your breasts are another sign that it could be time to pursue a lift.
Many of our patients also try the at-home pencil test. If a pencil placed in the fold beneath your breast stays in place without being held, that’s an indicator that your breasts are sagging enough that a lift could help.
You Have Asymmetric Breasts
Breasts that are slightly different in shape and size are a fairly common occurrence. But if one breast is noticeably smaller, different in shape, or rests in a higher or lower position than the other, a lift can help resolve those differences.
You’re in Good General Health
The best candidates are in good overall health and are free of any significant underlying health conditions.
Your Breasts Are Fully Developed
For a breast lift to be effectively performed, the patient should have a fully developed bosom. Generally, this means that patients are at least 18 years of age.
