As we age, our bodies no longer look as youthful as they once did. Maintaining a healthy diet, exercise regimen, and lifestyle can be helpful in slowing the aging process, but they can’t stop it completely. For instance, many women experience a change in their breasts over time. Factors such as aging, childbearing, nursing and weight loss can all cause the breasts to begin drooping and sagging despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Fortunately, procedures such as the breast lift can give breasts back a more youthful appearance. Dr. Alexandrina Saulis, a board certified plastic surgeon at Aesthetic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery serving Hinsdale, Naperville, Oak Brook, and Elmhurst, IL, can evaluate your situation and help you determine if a breast lift is right for you.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a minor surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to improve the appearance of the breasts. The breast lift procedure restores firmness and shapeliness to breasts that have begun to sag or droop due to pregnancy, nursing, aging or even extensive weight loss. A breast lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and can be completed in as little as one and a half to three hours. Your experienced Elmhurst plastic surgeon can let you know if your breast lift can be done as an outpatient procedure.
Benefits of a Breast Lift
There are many benefits to having a breast lift procedure performed. The breasts will look and feel better. The breasts are lifted up by removing excess skin, which eliminates sagging and dropping. Following a breast lift, the breasts look perkier, more symmetrical and feel firmer. Beyond the aesthetic benefits of a breast lift, many patients also report experiencing a boost to their self-esteem after having the procedure. Finally, since breast lifts are typically performed as an outpatient procedure, recovery time is quicker than other types of breast surgery.
A breast lift is a fairly easy way to dramatically improve the look and feel of your breasts through a simple procedure that only takes a few hours.
