For women who are concerned with a loss of skin elasticity and “sagging” among the breasts, a breast lift can address these concerns and provide firmer, more youthful results. Due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, the natural aging process, and simply gravity, the look of the breasts often changes over time. These changes can lead to sagginess and excess skin, ultimately causing a “drooping” appearance. While breast augmentation is ideal for women who wish to enhance the size and increase the fullness of their breasts (and can sometimes be helpful for individuals affected by breast droop), not every woman experiencing a sagging effect among the breasts wants or needs implants.
If you are generally satisfied with the size of your breasts and are primarily concerned with reducing excess skin and a “drooping” appearance, a breast lift without implants may be all you will need to achieve your goals. Additional benefits of a breast lift can include repositioning the nipple as well as resizing the areolas so they are proportionate with the breasts. If you would like to add volume and fullness to the breasts while simultaneously restoring the breasts to a firmer, “perkier” appearance, implants can be placed at the same time a breast lift is performed. Dr. David L. Durst aims to provide each of his breast surgery patients with natural-looking, beautiful results that look proportionate and harmonious with their figure. During the consultation process, Dr. Durst will perform a physical exam, review your medical history, discuss your unique expectations, and help you decide if a breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination of the two procedures can best meet your individual cosmetic goals.
