In Sarasota and elsewhere, breast augmentation is one of the most popular elective cosmetic surgeries available. Encompassing all aspects of enhancement, reduction, reconstruction and lifting, augmentation offers women the chance to get the bust they want and exert control over their physique. If you are unhappy with the height and volume of your breasts, a breast lift procedure may be the right choice for you.
Reasons to Consider a Breast Lift
As with any cosmetic procedure, plenty of women seek out a breast lift for purely aesthetic reasons. Reclaiming a more youthful shape can be a huge boost to a woman’s self-esteem and confidence. However, there are practical considerations to consider a breast lift, too. If you are expected to wear professional clothing for work, the tailoring fees for lowering the bust darts in blouses and jackets can really add up over time. Some women also experience back pain from the weight of their breasts being too low. Lifting that weight up to where it belongs can alleviate the discomfort, much in the same way a reduction can.
The Breast Lift Procedure
While surgical techniques and approaches vary, most lift procedures involve the removal of excess skin, the lifting of the breasts higher on the chest wall, and the repositioning of the nipples. Of course, the exact details of the procedure vary from patient to patient.
Full recovery after a breast lift procedure usually takes multiple weeks, but this is an average time frame. How quickly you will heal and return to all of your normal activities depends on your body, whether or not you have any issues, how well you adhere to post-surgical instructions and your own expectations, among other factors. Expectations play one of the largest roles in deciding how long your recovery period will be. Don’t rush back to your activities too quickly, as pushing yourself could affect your results.
