Many of us struggle with gravity as we get older. It pulls at the tissues of our body, which lose their elasticity over time. Breasts aren’t immune to this condition – in fact, they are particularly affected. If your breasts are sagging, it can make you feel unattractive. There is no need for this! At Front Range Plastic and Surgery, we offer breast lift procedures, which easily renew the shape of your breasts without the hassle of a full breast augmentation. In our next two blogs, we’re going to answer frequently-asked questions about this helpful procedure.
- If you want your breasts to be bigger, you need breast augmentation, in which mass is physically added to your breasts. If you want your breasts to stop sagging, you need a breast lift, in which loose breast skin is tightened up. That being said, the procedures can be combined. The key is to consult Board-Certified plastic surgeons like our Dr. Schutte, who will put your interests first.
- Skin is removed in a breast lift, but it’s about two to three tablespoons of volume on each side. The lift will change the shape and position of your breasts, not the size (unless that’s what you want). Again, consult with a high-quality plastic surgeon to get input that makes you confident moving forward.
