There are many reasons why breast lift is the second most popular cosmetic breast surgery in the United States, after breast augmentation. In fact, we can think of at least three good reasons why we see so many breast lift patients at our Long Island practice. Women of all ages and from all walks of life choose breast lift to enhance the appearance of breasts that droop and sag. Here are the three most common scenarios in which women consider breast lift on Long Island at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery.
It should come as no surprise to moms that after pregnancy and breast feeding, your breasts have likely seen better days. Most women see an increase in breast volume during pregnancy, only to lose this volume (and potentially more) after childbirth. The added volume in the breasts often causes them to stretch and sag. Some women, particularly younger moms who have a very elastic skin tone, will continue to enjoy attractive breasts after pregnancy, but many women are disappointed with drooping breasts and turn to breast lift cosmetic surgery as part of their mommy makeover.
To Correct the Effects of Aging
How many times have you heard the expression, “With age comes wisdom”? Having perspective and knowledge is an important part of growing older, but we all know that with age comes many other things that aren’t so good. The perky, full breasts that most women enjoy in their youth are gradually replaced with unwelcome sagginess and drooping. To reverse this effect of aging, Dr. Romanelli performs a breast lift that elevates the position of the breasts and re-contours their shape. Many patients are pleasantly surprised to learn that after their procedure, their breasts will look perky and have an attractive shape even when not supported by a bra.
After Weight Loss
Women who have lost a significant amount of weight often have a whole new lease on life. But they also have areas of loose skin, and the breasts are one of the most common areas that look saggy and deflated. A breast lift can help these women gain a renewed sense of femininity and feel more satisfied with their weight loss results. In fact, because many women who lose a lot of weight also see a significant loss of breast volume, many post weight loss patients choose breast enlargement using saline or silicone gel implants in conjunction with their breast lift procedure.
