Breasts are a sign of femininity. You’ve probably experienced many changes to your breasts over the years. Whether you’ve had kids or are simply just getting older, your breasts may not sit in the once perky position they once did.
While this doesn’t bother some women, others wish to correct it for cosmetic concerns. At the office of Anthony N. Dardano, located in Boca Raton, Florida, we provide breast lifts for patients who want a more youthful breast shape and position. Here we address three problems a breast lift corrects.
1. Drooping breasts
Do your breasts sit in a lower position than you’d like? Many factors can contribute to drooping breasts, like having kids, smoking, losing weight, and age. If you’re tired of having sagging breasts, a breast lift can give your breasts a more supple appearance.
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess breast tissue and tightens the skin around it. It also reshapes your nipple and lifts it to a more desirable position. Breast lifts are different for every patient — depending on the size, shape, and position of your breasts, there are various procedures that can help give you the results you want.
Want to know if you’re a good candidate for a breast lift? Here’s one at-home test that can help you find out. Place a pencil under your breasts. If the pencil stays, there’s a good chance you’d benefit from a breast lift.
2. Reshapes breasts
When you were young, your breasts probably appeared round and full. Now, you might notice your breasts don’t resemble a circular shape much at all, but rather a long oval. Many women who’ve lost weight find their breasts have lost volume, too.
A breast lift is a major surgery that reshapes your breasts to a more symmetrical and pleasing contour. A breast lift itself doesn’t focus on adding volume but rather reshaping your natural tissue. For those who want a larger breast size and a higher breast position, we can add implants to your breast lift.
Anthony N. Dardano completes breast lifts by using one of three incisions:
- “Donut” incision (around the areola)
- “Lollipop” shape (around the areola and straight down the breast)
- “Anchor” incision (around the areola, straight down the breast, and horizontally on the breast)
Dr. Dardano is known for his expert surgical technique and minimal scarring. Most of the incision scars fade over time and are well hidden within the natural contours of your body.
3. Breast firmness
As you age, your body produces less estrogen than it once did. Estrogen helps breast tissue grow. With less estrogen production, your mammary glands tend to get smaller. Fat may collect here, making your breasts softer.
Breast lifts remove excess tissue to improve elasticity and overall firmness. Many patients find that a breast lift not only improves their breast contours but their overall body contour.
The recovery time for a breast lift is often several weeks. Most patients can go back to work within 3-7 days but must avoid heavy lifting for exercise for at least three weeks.
