How Breast Lifts Help Women in Their 20s, 30s, 40s, and Beyond
While breast lifts have long been associated with older women who are fighting the near-inevitable effects of age and gravity, women of all ages are flocking to the procedure for earlier correction of sagging or drooping breasts.
Whether having children has taken its toll or Mother Nature simply wasn’t kind from the start, breast lifts are giving women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s profiles that are more in line with their youthful spirits and energy.
Here at Precision Plastic Surgery, we help women of all ages in Riverside, California, give new shape to their lives with breast lift surgery. Under the experienced and expert care of Dr. Joseph Ku, a board-certified plastic surgeon, you can put a little lift and perkiness in your life.
Here’s a look at why women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond are opting for a breast lift procedure.
Gone, baby, gone
Many women come to us after weaning their last child, wondering what their options are for their beleaguered breasts, which once swelled with milk and are now left hollow and sagging. If you know that your family is complete, a breast lift procedure can restore your breasts to their prebaby position and shape.
In addition to lifting your breasts, Dr. Ku can also reshape and reposition your areolas, as breastfeeding can cause your nipples to become larger, while also taking a downward-facing stance at the same time.
It’s important that you’re sure that you’re at the end of your childbearing years, because when we reposition your nipple, it may interfere with future breastfeeding.
If you’ve worked hard and lost the weight you needed, you may find yourself with breasts that look they’ve been put through the baby ringer. If you think of what a pregnant woman’s breasts go through during and after the pregnancy, you begin to realize that you underwent the same process with weight gain and subsequent weight loss.
If you carried a lot of extra weight in your chest, your skin expanded to accommodate the additional load. When you lose weight, your skin may not bounce back and reform itself over the new, slimmer you, leaving you with empty, drooping breasts.
Mother Nature doesn’t always know best
While we all want to carry our perkier breasts from our teenage years right on through adulthood, some of us were never blessed with them from the start. If you count yourself among the women who’ve always had drooping, uneven, or poorly-positioned breasts, a breast lift procedure can make up for Mother Nature’s oversight.
Whether you tackle it in your 20, 30s, 40s, or beyond, our breast lift procedure has successfully helped many of our patients get the profiles they’ve always wished for.
Giving them a lift
Whatever age you are, our breast lift procedure is largely the same. Using the latest, minimally invasive techniques, Dr. Ku lifts and reshapes your breasts in order to draw them up your chest. Once he’s satisfied they’re placed according to your goals, he closes the incisions.
More often than not, our patients also need to have their areolas repositioned and reduced so that they look more natural on their newly-lifted breasts. If this is the case for you, Dr. Ku tries to keep the integrity of your nipple intact by moving the nerves and blood supply with the areola so that you maintain sensitivity.
