From Dr. William Palin
|Incisions outline the area of the skin to be removed and the new position of the nipple.|
|Skin formerly located above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast. Sutures close the incision, giving the breast its new contour.|
A breast lift is a procedure that can restore a firmer, more youthful appearance to the breasts in women of all ages. Some women have breasts that tend to sag for predictable reasons. They may, for instance, have had several children or have breast-fed one or more children. Some women simply are genetically predisposed to having sagging breasts. Age, of course, is another reason why women commonly experience some sagging in their breasts.
Even though this occurs for reasons that have nothing to do with how people take care of themselves, sagging breasts can be psychologically very difficult to deal with. Breasts, of course, are practically synonymous with femininity and that means that having sagging breasts – particularly at a young age – can significantly impact a person’s self image.
Breast lift surgery is an ideal solution for some women.
A breast lift surgery does not augment the breasts. They are lifted up and a more aesthetically pleasing contour is given to the breasts by Dr. Palin during the procedure. The end result is that the breasts look more youthful, healthier and the person undergoing the procedure oftentimes feels quite a bit healthier self-esteem as a result.
It’s important to remember that the size of the breasts will impact the results that the patient can expect. If you have large breasts, a breast lift surgery can reduce sagging, but the results may not last quite as long as they would for a woman with smaller breasts. Age can also play a factor in how long the results last.
Dr. Palin can consult with women who want to have a breast lift but who are not interested in having any other sort of breast work done. Breast augmentation can be done along with a breast lift, but a breast lift is certainly available as a standalone procedure.
