Have you ever felt self-conscious about your breasts? Sagging breasts can be a pain and can leave most women feeling less confident in their appearance. With a breast lift by Houston Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Capriotti, women can enjoy younger, perkier breasts. Breast lifts are unique to every woman and their specific desires. A breast lift is like a reset button because, a Houston cosmetic surgeon will remove excess skin and reposition the tissue giving your breasts a firmer, more youthful look.
Depending on what you are looking for, a breast augmentation surgery may also be performed. This procedure will improve the volume and size of your breasts while a breast lift, lifts and shapes them. Breast augmentation and lift procedures are ideal for women who have been pregnant or breastfeeding. Women who have lost a substantial amount of weight, or have felt the impact of gravity over time, may also be interested in these cosmetic procedures.
Are you a candidate for a breast lift in Houston?
It is not uncommon for women to notice results directly after surgery, typically the results improve after the swelling goes down and the healing process begins. The results of a breast lift procedure can last anywhere from a few years to a decade. The results of your surgery may differ due to unique components.
The longevity of results depends on many factors such as:
- Breast size
While no cosmetic surgery is permanent, there are some things you can do to help the results of your breast lift last a long time. Maintaining a healthy weight with diet and exercise will help you prevent weight fluctuations which may contribute to sagging even after a breast lift has been performed. It is important to talk to your cosmetic surgeon about these factors beforehand at your consultation so that you know what to expect from surgery.
Many breast lifts are performed when women have reached their goal weight or after they are done having kids because due to these factors, a woman’s weight is less likely to fluctuate and alter their desired outcome.
Post Surgery: What now?
Finding the right bra after a breast lift is crucial to your recovery and to retaining desired results. Gravity is a natural occurrence and while we can’t stop that we can give you suggestions and tools to help protect the results of your procedure. A properly fitting bra is crucial for those who have just gotten a breast lift. A loose-fitting bra can cause breast sagging and a push-up bra can cause muscle strain. Having a good, supportive bra will help your breasts keep their desired shape and help you feel as comfortable as possible during the recovery process.
Proper skin care also plays a role in maintaining your desired outcome after a lift. Your skin elasticity is based on age, genetics, and other factors. There are things you can do to protect your skin as much as possible such as, limiting sun exposure, wearing proper sun protection, investing in a higher SPF sunscreen, and staying hydrated. All of these factors will contribute to lasting, beautiful results. We understand that every woman is unique, and their breast surgery should be no exception. Your surgical procedure is designed with you in mind and customized to fit your needs. We work with you to bring your desires to life.
