Have your once-perky breasts started to sag and droop? Changes in your breasts are common due to aging, childbirth, nursing and weight breast liftloss. Luckily, you don't have to live with unwelcome changes to your silhouette. Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis explains how a breast lift could restore your appearance.

What is a breast lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that relieves sagging by reshaping breast tissue, removing loose skin and repositioning your nipple and areola. Incisions from a breast lift are usually hidden under the areola and the crease of the breast.

Who can benefit from a breast lift?

Although the best way to tell if you're a good candidate for a breast lift is with a visit to our Elmhurst office, a breast lift may be a good idea if:

  • You have significant sagging: If your nipples are lower than the crease under your breast, you're probably a good candidate for a breast lift.
  • Your nipples point downward: When your breast tissue sags, your nipples may no longer face outward. A breast lift can restore the normal position of your nipples.
  • Your breasts are different sizes: In addition to lifting your breasts, the surgery can also make your breasts more symmetrical by reshaping them.
  • Your weight is stable: Your results may not last as long if you constantly lose and regain weight.
  • You aren't planning on becoming pregnant: Because pregnancy and breastfeeding can contribute to sagging, it's best to postpone a breast lift until after you've completed your family.
  • You want to look better in your clothing: Sagging breasts can affect the way your clothing fits and make you feel self-conscious on the beach. Lifting your breasts can boost your self-esteem and make you feel proud of your physique once again.
  • You're considering breast augmentation: Breast augmentation and breast lifts are often performed at the same time.
  • You're healthy: You must be in good health and free from any conditions or diseases that affect healing. Because smoking can also slow healing, you may not be a good candidate if you smoke.

As we age, our bodies no longer look as youthful as they once did. Maintaining a healthy diet, exercise regimen, and lifestyle can be breast implanthelpful 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.
