As most women know, aging alone can have a significant impact on many aspects of the body, including the breasts. As women age and bear children, their breasts may begin to sag, droop, or otherwise lose their shape. At the Center for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jeffrey DeMercurio perform breast lift surgery for women who wish to counteract the negative effects of aging. A breast lift can drastically improve the look of the breast and the overall silhouette, and is a great option for women who have lost the natural elasticity in their skin. If aging, pregnancy, or considerable weight fluctuation has taken a toll on the appearance of your breasts, contact us to learn more about the benefits of a breast lift.
The breast lift procedure is an outpatient cosmetic procedure that is performed under general anesthesia. Dr.DeMercurio will first make what is known as an “anchor incision.” This involves incisions around the nipple, down the underside of the breast, and around the crease of the breast. Doing so allows our surgeons to gain complete access to the skin and tissue of the breast in order to make the specific changes that the patient desires. He then repositions the nipple and areola, and trims excess skin, firming and tightening the breasts. For women who want to add fullness to their bust, Dr. DeMercurio can simultaneously perform breast augmentation surgery. After the incisions are closed, patients are usually fitted with a surgical bra that provides support to the breasts, and ensures optimal surgery results.
Under the skilled treatment of Dr. DeMercurio, many women have enjoyed the benefits of breast lift surgery. When considering surgery, however, there are several factors to take into account. It is important that women who undergo breast lift surgery be at least 18 years of age. This ensures that the breast has fully developed and that further growth will not alter the outcome of the surgery. In addition, ideal candidates for surgery include women who are not pregnant (and do not plan to become pregnant) and have no plans for significant weight loss. Since pregnancy and weight changes can affect the positioning of the breast, women are encouraged to have surgery after these events. It is also important to note that although larger-breasted women can benefit from a lift, women with smaller breasts tend to experience longer-lasting results.
Breast lift surgery is an effective way for women to restore a shapely, youthful look to their breasts. The procedure is popular because it can be performed in response to a number of issues that can affect the breast, including aging, pregnancy, and significant weight fluctuation. By lifting and tightening the skin, breast lift surgery eliminates unwanted droopiness of the breast. Because tighter, perkier breasts are often associated with youth, breast lift surgery can help a woman look and feel younger. Finally, breast lift surgery can increase a patient’s self-esteem. Especially when combined with breast augmentation surgery, a breast lift can positively transform a woman’s shape, adding curves and eliminating sagginess. This improvement in the body can help patients gain confidence that becomes evident in their daily life.
