Have you noticed that picking out a cute and flattering top has gotten progressively harder over the years? If so, you are not alone. At some point in their lives, many women find that their breasts have started to sag or droop. Several factors can contribute to this, but they all result in a negative impact on self-esteem and body image. A breast lift is an efficient solution to this common problem.
What Causes Saggy and Drooping Breasts?
Women in Melbourne and elsewhere start to notice that their breasts lose volume and begin to sag or droop as they age. While these changes in the breasts are a natural byproduct of the aging process, some circumstances can accelerate these changes. These circumstances include:
- Major weight loss
What Exactly is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a form of plastic surgery aimed at raising sagging or drooping breasts. The surrounding tissues are tightened to reshape and contour the breasts. The nipples and areolas can also be relocated and reshaped.
The Benefits of a Breast Lift
A breast lift can greatly improve a woman’s body image and elevate her self-esteem. The changes a woman’s body endures during pregnancy and breastfeeding can leave the woman feeling insecure about her appearance. Women who have gone through major weight loss may struggle with having changed one thing they didn’t like about their body only to be confronted with another—sagging and drooping breasts.
Regardless of the reason for getting a breast lift, doing so can result in more attractive body proportions and a more youthful appearance. Additionally, a breast lift can make the breasts look fuller and firmer.
A candidate for breast lift surgery is any healthy woman who is unhappy with the appearance of her breasts due to sagging, drooping, or loss of volume.
