Your breasts can look younger
- Posted on: Aug 30 2016
A lot of attention is given to wrinkles, saggy skin and other signs of aging that show up on the face. And there are many surgical and non-surgical methods available from Dr. Altamira to help us restore a more youthful appearance. But there’s an area of the body that can really benefit from treatment, and it isn’t always thought of when discussing methods for fighting the effects of aging – the breasts.
Augmentation isn’t the only breast treatment
In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that since the year 2000, twice as many women have been having breasts lifts as having implants.
Breast skin is as least as delicate and sensitive as the skin on the face, if not more. And our breasts respond to changes in our bodies and skin throughout our lives. So there are many things that can cause your breasts to lose elasticity, shape and firmness, including:
- Major weight fluctuations
- Breast feeding
But it’s possible to restore breast shape and firmness – and put them back in their “original” positions.
Discover the benefits of mastopexy (breast lift surgery)
Breast lift surgery is designed to significantly improve the appearance of the bust line and your overall appearance, while reversing signs of aging. A mastopexy procedure can raise your breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. The results can provide properly supported and reshaped breasts with a more youthful contour.
A breast lift doesn’t change the size of your breasts
The surgery can’t fill out lost tissue in the upper part of your breast, either. But if you want your breasts to look rounder and fuller, you can also choose to increase breast volume by having breast implants at the same time as your breast lift procedure. And some patients choose to combine their breast lift with breast reduction surgery.
