When it comes to the breast concerns we hear from patients, sagging is by far one of the most common. Loss of perkiness over time is tough, if not impossible, to avoid whether it’s as a result of pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. It’s no surprise women continue to seek nonsurgical methods of restoring perkiness, often through suggested exercises that just don’t make the difference a surgical breast lift can. At our Denver practice, the procedure helps women get back the sense of youth and femininity they may have lost over the years.
If breast lift exercises aren’t creating the results you’re looking for, it may be time to consider surgery.
The Breast Lift Procedure
The goal of a breast lift is to elevate and reshape breasts that have lost volume due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. This is achieved by removing excess skin around the breasts and tightening the underlying tissues to provide support.
Breast lifts involve scarring, although our practice uses techniques designed to help incisions stay thin and fade considerably over time. Vertical scarring is often the main reason women choose not to pursue breast lift surgery. However, the surgical skill and artistic vision our surgeons demonstrate allows for the creation of an ideal breast shape that our patients believe is worth the minimal scars.
Why Alternatives Fall Short
There is a reason breast lifts continue to grow more popular every year, despite attempts to find nonsurgical alternatives. The most commonly discussed solution to concerns around sagging breasts is exercise. Some reports show that strengthening the pectoral muscles through exercises like push-ups can provide lift and support. However, this method doesn’t address lax skin, one of the main causes of drooping, or the underlying structure of breast tissue. While muscle volume may increase with exercises, the goal of breasts sitting higher on the chest is not achieved.
Choosing a Breast Lift
At our practice, we focus on creating the most optimal breast lift results with the least amount of scarring. We do this primarily by assessing each patient’s individual body, goals, and concerns as we create a specific treatment plan. Several approaches to breast lifts exist—we use our surgical experience and expertise to select the method that will work best for each unique patient.
With breast lift surgery, there is no guesswork that comes with fad treatments and exercises. By choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon, you can be sure your procedure will address your specific concerns and create a result that’s just right for you. Our surgeons focus on providing individual attention and care to each patient—from the moment you request your first consultation to the time you leave your final follow-up appointment … and beyond.
