Have you ever wondered if you were a candidate for breast implants while having breast lift surgery? Bod Cosmetic Surgery, the Miami breast surgery center, notes that many factors can change the appearance of a woman’s breast over time including breastfeeding, pregnancy, major weight fluctuations, the effect of gravity, and the natural process of getting older. As women mature, their bodies gradually produce less and less collagen and elastin, the two proteins that are essential for preserving resilient and healthy skin. This often causes the skin to lose its elasticity, contributing to breasts that sag or drift downward on the chest wall. The nipples may even start to point southward, too. Undergoing cosmetic breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, can reverse or enhance these effects.
At Bod Cosmetic Surgery in the Miami / South Florida, offers breast lift surgery with or without breast implants. How do you know if you should get breast implants with your breast lift procedure? Read on to get your question answered.
When Breast Lift Alone Is Sufficient
Breast lift surgery alone may be all that you need if you not dissatisfied with the volume of your breasts. With this type of surgery, Bod Cosmetic Surgery eliminates excess skin around the breast and then re-shapes the existing breast mound, moving it to a higher, more youthful position on the chest wall. If necessary, she can also reduce the size of the nipple-areola complex and move higher up on the breast..
When Implants May Be Needed With Breast Lift
After breastfeeding and a large amount of weight loss, some women may suffer from a decrease in size and/or fullness of their breasts. A reduction in breast cup size is a common complaint from women after they finish nursing. You may be an appropriate candidate for a combination breast lift and augmentation procedure using implants if you fall into this categories. If you are looking to enhance your cleavage size, you might want to consider implants along with your breast lift procedure.
