Can a Breast Lift Prevent Future Sagging?

Can a Breast Lift Prevent Future Sagging?

Breast lifts have steadily risen in popularity over the years, and are becoming even more popular than breast augmentations. A breast lift does not change the size of your breasts, but rather how they sit on your chest. This not only makes them preferable for women looking to alleviate current sagging, but also those trying to avoid drooping in the future. 

At Laughlin Plastic Surgery, in Annapolis, Maryland, Dr. Daniel Laughlin can help you decide if a breast lift is the right choice for you, and help you figure out what the ideal placement is for your frame. Ideally, you’ll achieve a more youthful look without complete breast augmentation, and you’ll experience less sagging in the years ahead.

Causes of sagging or drooping breasts

Sagging of your breast tissue can be caused by a number of factors, including: 

Hereditary factors can also cause breasts to droop over time, especially if your breasts are naturally heavy or your nipples point downward. A breast lift can help resolve these issues.

How a breast lift works 

During a breast lift, the surgical procedure also known as a mastopexy, your breasts are raised and repositioned on your chest, improving their shape and contour. Dr. Laughlin removes excess skin, reshapes your breast tissue, and even repositions your nipples to look perkier. 

During the surgery, you’ll be under either general anesthesia or IV sedation. Dr. Laughlin and his team work quickly and efficiently to make the small incisions needed to access your breast tissue, reposition and reshape it, and close the incisions.

Recovery from a breast list is usually much shorter than for a complete breast enhancement. The incisions used are smaller, the impact on the breast tissue is less traumatic, and you don’t have to deal with implants.

How a mastopexy can help prevent future sagging 

More and more women are opting for breast lifts over breast augmentation, especially if they are happy with the general size of their breasts and mainly have issues with how their breasts appear. During a mastopexy, Dr. Laughlin makes adjustments to the breast tissue to make the shape of your breasts more uniform, even, and appealing.

He can also remove any excess or stretched skin. This provides the added benefit of slowing down the sagging process, helping your breasts stay looking youthful and perky for years to come. If you have big breasts, a breast lift might be the ideal procedure for you. You won’t lose any volume and your nipples can be shifted to sit higher and point up instead of down if desired.

To learn more about breast lifts, schedule a consultation with Dr. Laughlin for more personalized insight. He and his team can help you imagine the possibilities, and decide what’s best for you.
