Every year thousands of women all over the world are making the choice to receive a mastopexy, or breast lift. There are several reasons why one may choose to undergo a breast lift, however the most common reasons are usually to either enhance self-image or reconstruct the breast after injury or surgery. Dr. Allen at Allen Aesthetic Surgery has been helping women decide if a breast lift is right for them, and is proud to work with the community and improve the lives and self-image of the women in their care.
Why Would I Need A Breast Lift?
There are multiple reasons that someone may decide that a breast lift is right for them, some reasons are cosmetic in nature, while others decide to undergo a breast lift for reconstructive reasons. Through fluctuations in weight, the natural process of aging, heredity, breastfeeding, and pregnancy it’s possible for a woman’s breast size and shape to change over time. It is these concerns that a breast lift can help address.
- Pregnancy and Breastfeeding – Being pregnant frequently causes a growth of the breasts, especially when accompanied by breastfeeding. This process can cause stretch marks, sagging, and when breastfeeding is completed, a somewhat deflated look. Breast lifts can help alleviate stretch marks and sagging, while giving the breasts a more full appearance.
- Weight Fluctuations – While many women are excited to drop the pounds and get their bikini bodies back, they’re often less excited to discover that losing weight can also cause breasts to develop loose skin, causing them to sag slightly. Breast lifts can help tighten up the skin and keep you looking incredible on the beach.
- Aging & Hereditary – The inevitable forces of gravity and aging can lead to sagging breasts as well. As skin loses its elasticity, breast definition can be lost. Breast can also lose their definition as a result of hereditary reasons. Breast lifts can help to restore breast definition.
- Large Areola – During pregnancy it’s also common for a woman’s areola to expand, creating an aesthetic that some women aren’t happy with. Breast lifts are able to help with conditions like these as well, restoring the natural size of your areola and improving the appearance of your breasts.
