There are many reasons that cause women to experience droopy breasts. Factors that can cause the breasts to sag include child bearing, breastfeeding, and aging. Many women who have sagging breasts choose to enhance the contour of their breasts with a breast lift. Dustin C. Derrick, MD is the lead plastic surgeon at Cosmetic Surgery of DFW for Mommy Makeovers in Fort Worth, TX, and he and his team are proud to provide breast lift surgery as an option to our patients.
The best candidates for a breast lift will be physically healthy and at a stable weight. Candidates should also be nonsmokers and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery. Most women who have the procedure find that their nipples fall below the crease of the breasts when they are not supported and are bothered by sagging and lost volume in the breasts.
What is the Procedure Like?
Before the procedure, you will undergo a medical evaluation and lab testing to ensure that you are healthy enough to have the procedure. If you smoke, it is advised that you cease before the procedure, and you should also refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications. The procedure is administered at our office. The technique that will be used for your breast lift will be based on a number of factors, which include:
- The extent of the sagging
- The position and size of the areola
- The size and shape of the breasts
During the procedure, the underlying tissue will be reshaped and lifted to improve the contour and firmness of the breasts. The nipple may also be repositioned for a more youthful look, and excess skin will be removed. The openings will then be sealed and the surgery complete.
The results of this procedure are immediate. Although the results are long-lasting, aging and pregnancy may cause the breasts to sag again with time. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight, it can help you maintain optimal results.
