Most women have a clear idea of their perfect breasts. However, in reality, many women feel that the actual shape or size of their breasts fail to match up. Genetics have a key role to play in the appearance of a woman’s breasts. However, there are other factors at play as well. Pregnancy, weight gain or loss, and breastfeeding can cause breasts to look saggy or deflated. Although breast augmentation might seem like the ideal solution, it isn’t right for every woman. You cannot resolve the drooping and sagging by having a breast augmentation. However, there is a comprehensive option that will suit many women – a breast lift combined with an augmentation. Women wanting a breast lift in Tampa can combine their treatment with breast augmentation for a perky and perfect result.
Why Would I Need to Have A Breast Lift?
Breast lifts raise up the breasts into a natural position higher on the chest. This surgery resolves any issues with excess tissue and skin and stops the sagging. Depending on your needs, there are several types of breast lifts that your surgeon may offer.
The Benelli Lift
For women with moderate or mild ptosis, the Benelli Lift is a good choice. Ptosis refers to tissue that droops under the inframammary fold. The Benelli Lift is also a good choice for nipples that face slightly downward. The technique involves making incisions around the areolae. Then, the surgeon would remove a small amount of tissue in the shape of a donut.
The Lollipop Lift
For women with severe or moderate ptosis, the Lollipop Lift could be the answer. This technique involves making incisions around the areolae before continuing the incision down the breast. This allows the surgeon to lift the breasts and create a natural and firmer contour.
The Mastopexy Lift
For women with very severe ptosis, the Mastopexy Lift is the answer. In cases where a large amount of breast skin is sagging and the nipples point downward, this lift is beneficial. It involves making incisions around the areolae, down the breast, and, then, across the patient’s inframammary fold. The surgeon makes sutures across the fold to give the support necessary to address the additional sagging this lift resolves.
Adding in A Breast Augmentation
Once your surgeon has performed a breast lift, then, he or she can perform a breast augmentation. After your surgeon has repositioned the breasts and corrected the sagging, he or she can enhance the change. The surgeon can insert implants to increase the size of the breasts while also lifting them into a better position. The result is a very complete approach to improving the appearance of the bust area.
The Benefits of a Two in One Procedure
When you combine a breast augmentation with your breast lift in Tampa, you’ll have many benefits. Not only will you achieve the appearance you’ve been hoping for, but you’ll also reduce your recovery time. Women who have a breast lift and, then, a separate augmentation have to recover twice. It’s also more affordable to have both procedures together since the surgeon will only charge once for the surgery.
While breast lifts are the only possible way to correct drooping and sagging breasts, having implants can enhance the result. Once your breasts are in a higher placement on the chest, the implants will improve your appearance even more.
