Most women think of breast augmentation when they think about breast surgery, but Mastopexy, or a breast lift, is now increasingly sought by women. In fact, in the last 16 years requests for a breast lift cosmetic procedure have increased 600% according to the American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
This increase in Mastopexy is due to many factors. Here are the top reasons why and when women seek a breast lift.
Weight Loss Can Lead To A Saggy Breast
Many women discover that after they lose their desired amount of weight, they are still not happy with their shape because their breasts have lost volume.
A breast lift will remove excess skin, tighten the loose skin and muscles around the breast, and raise the nipples and areola to restore a more proportional and youthful shape.
After Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
Pregnancy and breastfeeding may leave a woman’s breasts stretched and droopy. A breast lift will bring back the perky look of a firmer pre-pregnant figure. Most doctors recommend that this be performed after the last pregnancy.
Relief From Increased Back And Neck Pain
When breasts are heavy and sagging down, it puts extra pressure on the shoulders and neck while wearing a bra. The bra straps dig into the shoulders creating that stress and pressure. After a breast lift, the pressure is relieved and the pain dissipates.
Desire To Increase Physical Activity
Women with large and saggy breasts find it quite difficult to do certain activities. Jogging, running, lifting weights, and even normal activities can be limited. A breast lift will “lighten the load” and free a woman to engage in numerous physical activities they had long ago forgotten.
Reduce Skin Irritation
Only a woman with large breasts understands how uncomfortable they can be. They rub against the torso and under the arms creating chronic rashes. A mastopexy will help eliminate this perpetual problem.
Desire To Look Better And Feel Better
Every woman wants to feel sexy and look good in her clothes. A breast lift will provide a more proportioned figure and ultimately make her look younger, which can provide a boost in self confidence.
Aging, weight problems, and pregnancy all take their toll on the breasts. After a breast lift, you can look better in a swimsuit, fit better and more comfortably in your bra, and overall feel more confident.
