Breast Lift Procedures Detroit
Female breast ptosis or sagging is a natural consequence of aging. The rate at which a woman’s breasts droop and the degree of ptosis depends on many factors. The key factors of breast ptosis over a woman’s lifetime include: cigarette smoking; her number of pregnancies; gravity; higher body mass index; larger bra cup size; and significant weight gain and loss. Post-menopausal women may also experience increased ptosis due to a loss of skin elasticity.
The breast lift procedure eliminates sagging breasts by reshaping the breast mound, tightening the skin and repositioning the nipple to give your breasts a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Lytle may combine the breast lift with breast augmentation, depending on your situation.
Candidates for Breast Lift
There are many reasons women seek the breast lift procedure, including:
- Stretched breast skin
- Enlarged areolas
- Breasts that are elongated or low
- Nipples that point down
Women who have one or more of these issues may be candidates for a breast lift. Women with small breasts or large breasts who are in good health are possible candidates for the breast lift.
Having realistic expectations is another important factor in determining breast lift candidacy. While it is important that you feel comfortable with the way your breasts look after the breast lift, you should be doing it for yourself and not for anyone else. Also, because of the aging of breast skin and gravity, a breast lift will not permanently change your breasts. Firmness and shape will be change for the better for a very long time, but you may need to undergo another breast lift in the future to keep gravity and age at bay.
Breast Lift vs Breast Augmentation
In general, if you are happy with the volume of your breasts in a bra, but not the shape, a breast lift will likely be the procedure of choice. If your breasts are to small, however, an augmentation will be needed.
