Feel & Look Younger with Breast Lift in Palo Alto
For women, the appearance of the breasts generally enhances a youthful look and feel — when the breasts are perky and firm looking. Truth be told, a woman’s breasts can make or break her overall body shape. But as fate or (more accurately) natural processes would have it, the female breasts may gradually sag and the nipples droop. The usual causes of breast sagging include gravity, aging, hormonal changes, pregnancy, and weight loss.
What really happens when the breasts sag? The sagging can affect the breast size, chest contour and the position of breasts and nipples. In other words, the sagging of breasts may make the woman lose the aesthetic balance of her bust. This leads to a disproportionate harmony between the breasts and body contour – in the process producing an unflattering look and decreasing the self-confidence of a woman. The good thing is that there’s an effective fix to this chest malady through a surgical procedure known as breast lift or mastopexy.
How does mastopexy work? The basic procedural technique involves placing planned incisions in order to “lift” the breasts. After that, the folds of excess skin and tissues created by breast sagging are normally cut. When successfully done, the surgery can restore the breast shape and correct the downward-pointing nipples. This procedure, in turn, can regain the vibrant look of a woman’s breasts.
Can mastopexy be done in combination with other breast procedures? The answer is a resounding yes. In fact, generally, a breast lift surgery is undergone together with breast augmentation or breast reduction surgeries. This is so as too small or too large breasts usually have accompanying sagging issues.
