When is a Breast Lift Usually Done?
A breast lift, medically referred to as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that is gaining in popularity today, in the country and all over the world. This popularity is attributed to its proven abilities to transform the breasts into firm, round, youthful-looking breasts. Naturally, the aging process would affect how the breasts will look and feel, especially after years of breastfeeding and multiple pregnancies. A breast lift is therefore normally done after one has lost a significant amount of weight which leaves the breasts wrinkled and stretched out and after a pregnancy and nursing period which leaves the nipples pointing downwards. Nursing also leaves the breasts without form. Those who are in their mid 40s and early 50s are also finding a breast lift to be a very attractive option since it helps one regain their previously firm breasts. A breast lift for aging is mostly done in combination with breast implants to help the breasts appear full and feel firm. Of course this should be done after a thorough consultation and detailed discussion with your plastic surgeon.
