Sagging breasts are a common problem that is also quite embarrassing. You're probably ashamed of them, and feel responsible somehow for it. But the truth is, most women can't avoid a bit of sag as they get older. Your skin just isn't as elastic as it used to be, and it can't accommodate the rapid shape changes associated with weight loss or pregnancy.
Sagging breasts can hinder your search for clothing and reduce your self-confidence. If the whole ordeal has been nagging you, it's time to think about a breast lift.
But what kind of breast lift is good for you? You've probably heard that a surgical breast lift can give the results you want. But there are other terms like internal breast lifts that can often be confusing.
An internal breast lift uses the latest in laser technology to enhance the results of a breast lift and make them more permanent. A laser is used to send heat energy deep beneath the skin into the underlying tissue of the breast. The heat causes tissue to contract, resulting in firmer tissue. By carefully controlling which areas of the breast receive this heat energy, a skilled surgeon can create an internal bra that helps support the weight of the breast. This internal bra can then be attached to the chest wall to provide sturdy support for the newly shaped breast. Internal breast lifts are mainly a supplement to the traditional breast lift procedure. It doesn't require more time than a traditional breast lift and adds no extra risks. The only thing it does do is make the breast lift more pronounced and permanent.
This is a good thing for women with advanced stages of breast sag. The biggest problem associated with traditional surgeries is that the breasts tend to continue their downward trend even after the lift was completed. An internal breast lift acts like a natural bra that helps to prevent further sagging from happening.
Other cosmetic surgery techniques can benefit from an internal breast lift. Patients undergoing breast reduction or enlargement find that it helps to make the transformation stick.
Now, given the benefits of an internal breast lift you're probably wondering why not everyone is doing it. First of all, not every surgeon has the background, training, and equipment to perform an internal breast lift in conjunction with a traditional one. Second, the costs of the training and equipment are always downloaded to the patient, so the cost is another prohibitive factor.
If you can find a plastic surgeon in your area that offers an internal breast lift, be sure to talk to him or her about the expected costs and benefits. Depending on your needs, it may be completely unnecessary.
