As women age, their skin’s elasticity decreases. The resulting looseness causes noticeable sagging of the breasts, which is especially prominent in women who have several children. In those cases, the nipples often begin to droop below the breast crease in the chest, a condition that is both embarrassing and frustrating. Blouses fit awkwardly, and more support is needed, often to the point of discomfort.
It's a concern that can nag at a woman until she decides to do something about it surgically.
The main problem is that the skin of the breast can no longer accommodate a change in shape. Weight loss, like pregnancy, can cause breast sagging. Once the fat in the breast is reduced, the skin can't shrink back into place. Prior to the evolution of plastic surgery, there was nothing a woman could do about this problem.
Utilizing the latest in laser technology has allowed plastic surgeons to make the changes stick.
Traditionally, a breast lift has been the procedure most commonly used to address the problem of sagging, but the technique only sets back the clock temporarily. The more recently developed laser breast lift, however, offers women a more permanent transformation.
Yes it does, this surgery combines the use of a laser with a normal breast lift, applying heat energy to the underlying breast tissue, causing it to contract and to harden. By choosing the locations carefully, a surgeon can create a firm under-support for the breast, which is, in essence, an internal bra made of the patient's own tissue and attached to the chest wall for more permanent results.
Because laser breast lifts are a relatively new procedure, you will likely have to shop around to find a plastic surgeon to perform the operation, and the fees will be higher. However, the peace of mind and the longevity of the outcome are well worth the effort and cost. (It is always important to work with a board-certified plastic surgeon.)
Compared to a traditional breast lift, the laser breast lift doesn't take much additional time and adds no complications. The only thing it does do is make a breast lift more permanent. There are extra costs associated with a laser breast lift, though. The patient must pay a portion of the plastic surgeon's training and equipment costs related to the laser.
You could replace that droop with some youthful bounce and get back on track with the things that you love. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon today for a laser breast lift quote.
