Time takes its toll on your breasts, as do weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding. But you can recover their youthful shape and firmness with a breast lift.
A breast lift (also known as mastopexy) is just as it sounds—the skin and underlying structure are pulled up and tightened. If the areolas have become enlarged, they might be reshaped as well. If you want to add fullness to your breasts, you can combine a breast lift with a breast enlargement. If you want to reduce the size of your breasts, you can combine a breast lift with a breast reduction.
If your breasts have begun to sag and have a flatter, elongated shape, or if your nipples point downward, a breast lift is a good option. A breast lift, one of many procedures Aspire offers in the Fort Wayne area, can also even out your breasts if one is longer than the other. A breast lift can improve your body’s contour as well as your self-esteem. Many women in Fort Wayne, Indiana choose breast lift surgery for their needs.
If you’re considering a breast lift, the first step is scheduling a consultation at our Fort Wayne location. Dr. Lee will take the time to get to know you and to talk about what you hope to achieve with a breast lift. Dr. Lee will ask you about your desired breast shape and how your nipples will be repositioned. He will take measurements of your breasts and photos for your records. You can be assured you will be in good hands. Dr. Lee has successfully performed many breasts lifts for patients in the Angola, Warsaw, and Huntington areas.
Dr. Lee will take your medical history. Be prepared to talk about any medical conditions, previous surgeries, current medications and allergies, and whether you’ve had any breast biopsies.
A breast lift will not affect your ability to breastfeed, but pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the results of your breast lift. Tell Dr. Lee if you are planning to become pregnant after your procedure.
You should also tell Dr. Lee if you plan to lose a significant amount of weight. Weight loss can affect the size and shape of your breasts. You may need to achieve your goal weight before undergoing surgery.
