Although the breast lift may not be as popular of a procedure as the breast augmentation is, it is still a powerful way to get the breast shape that you desire. However, you may not be as familiar with this procedure and may not know if it is the right option for you. Here are three ways that you can know that this is the right time for you to discuss a breast lift with Dr. Meger in the Phoenix area.
1. When Your Breasts are Noticeably Sagging
Breast lifts are designed to treat breasts that are sagging because the skin and underlying tissues have become stretched out and no longer snap back into the correct positions. Often, this is due to age-related changes as your skin no longer has the youthfulness it once did. However, it could also be due to pregnancy, childbirth and lactation that significantly changed the shape of your breasts one or more times. Massive weight gain followed by weight loss can also leave these tissues stretched.
2. When Your Nipples Are No Longer in the Correct Locations
You can also tell that a breast lift should be in your future if your nipples are hanging lower than your breast crease. Youthful nipples lie towards the center of your breasts and appear perky by facing forward. If they are hanging down, a lift can move them up using incisions around the areolas.
3. When You Are Unhappy with the Shape of Your Breasts
Some women have no problem living with the shape of their breasts and do not feel that they need lifts. However, others feel that their self-confidence and femininity are greatly affected by these changes and are dramatically helped with this procedure. If you are in this second camp, you can see your self-image rise by getting your breasts back to a youthful shape.
A thorough consultation with Dr. Meger will be the best way for you to know whether a breast lift in Phoenix AZ is the right option for you. You may also want to combine this procedure with another option, such as a breast augmentation, to get your desired shape and size of breasts in only one treatment time.
