Breasts are a symbol of beauty, female identity and sexuality. Over the years and especially after pregnancy and lactation, these important attributes of women tend to sag, lose shape and firmness. Fortunately, there is a surgery that can raise, correct flaccidity and reshape the female breast:
The breast lift without implants
There are many reasons why breast may fall or get flabby. For example, the normal aging process, gain or loss of body weight, the processes associated with motherhood, genetic factors, or just the action of gravity force. They directly affect the appearance of breast, which loses tone and “down” from its initial position.
To relocate breasts in the middle of the chest and sculpt their physiognomy we suggest the breast lift without implants. This is a surgical procedure designed to reshape your breast and reform the changes made in the areola and nipple.
The breast lift without implants, the procedure
In our clinic My Cosmetic Surgery this procedure is performed by specialists Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, MD, Dr. Jose Zayas, MD and Dr. Arístides Martínez A.A.C.S., AACS. They all are well experienced in providing cosmetic and aesthetic medical services.
There are different techniques to perform this surgery, which are used depending on breast size, age of the patient and her state of health, among other features. Also, surgical incisions vary depending on the case. You can make cuts around the areola, below it and to the level of the crease underneath the breast. The greater the fall of breast, the greater will be the scars needed to shape the chest and take the remaining skin.
Through these incisions we make the breast lift without implants, which consists of relocate and anchor the breast tissue, the relocation of the areola and nipple to the appropriate height and the removal of surplus tissue at the bottom of the breast. Surgery may also reduce the size of the areola in case it is very large.
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and it lasts from one hour and a half to three hours and a half. After surgery, it is recommended to use an elasticized brassiere every day, for a month. The patient could retake her routine in 8 or 10 days. She has to avoid efforts arms. During the first month, she should avoid sports activities.
The final result of a breast lift without implants will be noticeable few months after surgery. The scars are more or less extensive depending on the technique used but they become invisible over time. Although they are durable, breast lift effects are not permanent because there are many factors that can affect them, for instance, pregnancy and weight fluctuations.
