Breast Lift Houston
As years go by, almost every woman notices a gradual change in the size, shape, and feel of her breasts. A cumulative toll of gravity, pregnancy, breast feeding, and weight fluctuation results in the inevitable — breasts sag, droop, soften, and flatten out. With the loss in firmness, volume and drooping position, the breasts look and feel old, a problem which can be remedied. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can reshape, reposition, and firm sagging, shrinking, atrophied breasts.
The best candidate for the procedure is a woman who has small—to moderate-sized breasts. The procedure can be performed on women with any size or shape breasts, but tends to give better, long-lasting results in women who do not have large heavy breasts. Many women choose surgery to correct their breasts because pregnancy and nursing has stretched skin and reduced volume. Many women postpone a breast lift until her family is complete.
Breast lift surgery is performed under a light general anesthesia, so you sleep through the operation. When you wake up, discomfort will be minimal and local anesthesia will facilitate your recovery. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, so you can recover in the comfort of your own home with medications controlling any discomfort. Swelling and bruising usually subside in a week or so.
A full breast lift is generally necessary when there is excess skin with sagging. A variety of mini breast lifts are available with less excess skin and sagging. For instances where there has been a loss of breast volume, giving a deflated look to your breasts, enhancement with a breast implant, combined with a full breast or mini lift may be the key to the solution.
There are many options available for restoring the youthful appearance of your breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Lyos, treatment options with regards to the type of breast lift and whether or not an implant will be helpful will be discussed and the treatment plan will be customized to meet your goals.
