When it comes to some of the most intimate parts of our bodies, entering into a cosmetic procedure to change their appearance in any way can be a very personal decision. Some women may choose to have a breast procedure done in order to make the appearance of their chests more subtle, while others may choose to undergo a breast procedure to add more bold and eye-catching contours. In any case, a breast procedure is done with the aim of making a woman feel more comfortable and confident in her own body. Dr. Ellen at Dr. Ellen Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offers breast lifts and other breast procedures to patients in Bloomfield Township, MI, who meet the following qualifications:
Physically Healthy and Maintains a Healthy Weight
In order to experience the best results from a breast lift it is recommended that you be at, and able to maintain, your ideal weight. Significant fluctuations in weight can cause changes in the size and shape of the breast tissue. Becoming pregnant and breastfeeding can also lead to changes in the appearance of the breasts. Dr. Ellen recommends breast lifts be done when you have decided not to have any more children as becoming pregnant can affect the look of post-operative breasts.
Happy With the Size of Breasts but Not the Shape
A breast lift will not add volume to the breasts, so if you are hoping to achieve a fuller bust after this procedure, you may want to consider a breast augmentation. Instead, a breast lift can improve the shape of the breasts by lifting them to a more flattering and youthful position. You can always combine both procedures to achieve a fuller and more lifted look, but having realistic expectations is important.
Your Breasts Point Downwards
For some women, the position of their breasts causes their nipples to point downwards, sometimes hanging past the crease of the breast tissue. A breast lift will move the breasts and nipples into a perkier and more youthful position whilst also removing excess skin and tissue that may be contributing to their drooping appearance. This can also make bras and bathing suits fit more comfortably.
Restore Breasts After Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
During pregnancy and lactation, the breasts can swell to be two or three times their normal size. The ligaments that support your breast tissue will also begin to loosen in order to accommodate their growing size. After breastfeeding and pregnancy, some women may notice that their breasts do not return to their pre-partum appearance and may now be saggy and feel unsupported. A breast lift is a great way to restore the look and feel of the breasts to their pre-baby days.
Rejuvenate Breasts That Have Changed Shape from Age
You don’t have to have been pregnant for your breasts to change in appearance from being lifted to sagging. As we age, our skin and tissue begin to lose laxity and structure and wrinkles begin to form. This can also cause parts of our body to hang lower than they did before. A breast lift is a great way to rejuvenate aging breast tissue to appear more youthful and perky.
