Top 3 Treatment Options to Lift Your Saggy Breasts
Sagging breasts can affect any woman, young or old, small- or large-chested. For many women, it is not uncommon to develop sagging breasts early in life. Women who have lost significant weight or the physical changes of pregnancy and breastfeeding can develop sagging breasts. Weight and babies aside, hormonal fluctuations and the natural forces of gravity can also contribute to breast sagging – which can be the source of dismay and embarrassment. If your breasts have lost their youthful, perky look, there are some effective treatment options available to lift and shape your breasts.
A breast lift can reshape and add volume, removing excess skin, and tightening your tissue to create more support. There are different breast lift techniques available today, each differing in the amount of tissue removed as well as the location of the incisions.
- A traditional breast lift can resolve severe sagging. This technique uses several incisions and removes more significant amounts of skin and tissue.
- A circumareolar breast lift involves an incision at the border of the nipple. This technique is suitable for those with minor sagging, as the results are more subtle.
- A vertical breast lift is appropriate for those who have a moderate amount of sagging. A vertical breast lift involves an incision around the areola and from the lower nipple down the front of the breast mound.
Breast lift with implants
If you are looking for more volume, a lift with breast implants might be right for you. Once the breasts have been lifted by one of these three methods, implants can be inserted to give you shape and increased volume. Implants could be either silicone or saline. The main difference is whether the implant is placed above or below the chest muscle. Dr. Heil can guide you on the option that is right for you.
Breast fat transfer
If you are looking to add volume to your breasts, but are not sure about implants, a breast fat transfer might be the best alternative. Transferring fat from one area of your body to your breasts is a natural and safe way to increase the shape and definition of your breasts without the need for implants. Transferring natural fat adds subtle volume to your breasts, about one cup size. Depending on the severity of sagging, a lift may be needed.
