Breast Lift Candidates
Many people have heard of breast implants and how they can be used to enhance the bustline and improve overall body contour. That is not the only option available for improving the appearance of the breasts, however. Another option is breast lift surgery, a popular surgery with a number of different applications. When you meet with a skilled San Antonio plastic surgeon, you'll find out if you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery and how it can benefit you. Let's go over the basics of the surgery and candidacy so you understand what to expect.
What is breast lift surgery?
San Antonio breast lift surgery is a breast enhancement procedure that is performed in order to improve the perkiness and pertness of the breasts.
How is breast lift surgery performed?
During the breast lift surgery, incisions will be made around the areola, along the lower curve of the breast, and at the crease where the breast meets the chest. (It's helpful to think of the shape of a ship anchor.) Excess tissue will be carefully removed through these incisions and the remaining skin pulled tighter.
Sometimes fewer or less extensive incisions will be required to achieve the desired effect for the patient. In addition, breast lift surgery can be combined with breast augmentation surgery in order to improve perkiness and enhance volume as well.
Breast Lift Surgery After Major Weight Loss
One reason why women undergo breast lift surgery is to improve the appearance of the breasts after major weight loss. The breast lift is an effective body contouring surgery, able to remove sagging skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Breast Lift Surgery After Having a Child
Childbirth and breast feeding can both have a major effect on the appearance of the breasts. The breast lift is an extremely effective mommy makeover option to restore your appearance to what it was before being pregnant.
Breast Lift Surgery to Fight the Effects of Aging
Age and gravity can have a major effect on the appearance of the breasts over time. The breast lift is thus a form of anti-aging surgery, allowing women who are older to look years and years younger.
Other Considerations for Potential Breast Lift Patients
It is of the utmost importance that prospective breast lift patients are in good overall health and do not suffer from major health conditions that could make surgery risky.
