No matter how much you do at the gym, you can’t build your pectoral muscles enough to firm and lift your breasts. Even if you’ve lost weight and got into shape, saggy boobs often are an unfortunate side effect. When your goal is a younger, firmer appearance that includes perky breasts that sit where they’re intended, then your best bet is a breast lift with breast implants.
As you debate your options, take time to talk to a professional who deals with these issues every day. The team at Rowe Plastic Surgery in Manhattan, Long Island, New Jersey, and the Hamptons are experts in giving you proportions that align with your personal goals. Only a skilled cosmetic breast surgeon can create the ideal silhouette to suit your frame and your self-image.
Many factors lead to sagging breasts, some of which you have control over and some that you don’t. Droopiness in your breasts may be caused by:
Poor lifestyle choices over many decades also contribute to saggy breasts, causing you to seek a breast lift and breast implants. Things that you can change to improve the size and lift of your breasts before they start to sag too much include:
Breast augmentation, whether through breast implants or fat transfer was one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States in 2020, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. But if your breasts are sagging too much, augmentation alone isn’t going to be enough to restore your youthful figure. The implants add weight to your breasts so that they may sag even more. You may need a breast lift with implants if:
If you get an augmentation without a lift, the outcome may be less than you hoped for and leave you with:
A breast lift alone certainly can give you a perkier profile. A breast lift without implants is called a mastopexy. As long as you don’t expect to gain a cup size or create new décolletage, a mastopexy may be a good choice for you, as long as you’ve retained sufficient volume.
A breast lift results in repositioning your breasts higher on your chest and removing excess skin. Your nipples may be repositioned at the same time. This may be all you need if you’re still young and just had a baby. Some things that a breast lift by itself can’t do include:
Get the best of both worlds and solve your quandary about what’s more important — high, perky breasts or full, firm ones — with a procedure called masto-aug or mastopexy with augmentation. It’s a complicated surgery for which you must rely on the expertise of an experienced plastic surgeon who’s performed the operation successfully over many years. Your cosmetic breast surgeon at Rowe Plastic Surgery advises you on the best options for your age, body type and health.
The aesthetics are outstanding when the surgery’s performed with the eye of an artist and the hands of trained surgeon. Prior to the surgery, you discuss the variety of choices with your doctor, who also prepares you for a smooth recovery. Full recovery from breast augmentation with a breast lift averages about six weeks. Tips to ensure that time is well spent so that you can enjoy your new body include:
After you’ve been released by your surgeon to partake in your regular activities, the only thing left to do is enjoy your new figure and maybe go on a shopping spree to build a wardrobe that shows it off.
