Beautiful, Natural Breasts: Breast Lift
The natural beauty of a woman's breasts are an important part of her confidence; the way she carries herself. Many women aren't actually driven by a desire to have 'perfect breasts', but simply want their former breasts back, or some now-prominent feature that has shown up over time. A breast lift is a procedure that essentially raises the breast, significantly reversing the effects of age, pregnancy, etc. The results are a more full, rounded, and youthful look.
Options and Decisions
There are different types of lifts, such as the Benelli (often referred to as Donut Lift), Lollipop, and Anchor Lift. The two most commonly asked procedural questions are:
- Do I need a breast lift with implants?, or
- Can I get the desired results by just a breast lift alone?
At times a breast lift alone will achieve the desired result, and at other times it is not enough. It may be that the breasts have enough volume, but the way the breast tissue is distributed may have changed over time. The exact shape, position, and volume of the breast pre-surgery will significantly determine the answer to these questions. Even in cases where no breast tissue has been lost, naturally gravity tends to make the breast appear lower.
To achieve the desired result, a breast augmentation may be recommended to create volume in and around the breast by placing FDA-approved implants behind your natural breast tissue or chest muscle. These implants are made of either saline (salt water) or silicone gel, and are manufactured and covered by a warranty from MENTOR®, a leading quality implant manufacturer.
Who is a Good Candidate?
- Age 18 to 65
- Generally in good health
- Desires aesthetic enhancement of the breast
- Desires augmentation, lift or reduction of the breast
