Sagging is something every woman will experience at some point in her life, but it is not something you have to live with for life. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can be performed to return breasts to a perkier and more youthful position. Depending on your beauty goals, it is sometimes performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation. However, many plastic surgeons falsely advertise a “scarless” breast lift—which is not possible.
Why You Will Never Have A Scarless Breast Lift
It doesn’t matter what breast procedure you opt for (mastopexy, augmentation, nipple lift, breast reduction, or implant removal) an incision will be required—and that incision will leave a scar. Those who irresponsibly claim they can deliver a “scarless” procedure mislead their patients into believing that they have found a way around an incision. What would be more responsible to explain is that there are suture techniques that once mastered result in fine-line, minimal scaring in most patients.
Everyone Scars Differently
Even the most masterful plastic surgeon cannot guarantee what your scarring will look like. There are many contributing factors to what kind of scar will be left behind. This includes factors such as your pigmentation, age, initial elasticity, length and depth of the incision, and how you typically scar. As with most scars, your surgical incision will fade a bit over time.
Is A Breast Lift Right For Me?
The best way to determine which breast procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bash. A breast lift can help you achieve firmer and more youthful breasts, reversing the aging caused by breastfeeding, weight loss, gravity, and aging. A breast lift will reposition your breasts, and if needed, the shape of your stretched-out areola. If you also wish to increase the volume or firmness of your breast—a lift can be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation. For best results, Dr. Bash suggests that you first achieve your goal weight and do not plan to get pregnant. Some of the most common reasons for a breast lift include:
- You are unhappy with the appearance of your sagging breasts
- Gravity, aging, and stress have affected your breasts shape
- You have sagging breasts that are loose and lack substance
- One of your drooping breasts is lower than the other
- Your nipples and areolas point downward
- Your areolas are stretched out of shape
Last but not least, and we cannot stress this enough, all plastic surgery must be performed by a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. If you live in the Phoenix or Scottsdale area, we invite you to reach out to Dr. Deborah Bash today to discuss your goals. Unlike many plastic surgeons, your consultation will be with Dr. Bash directly not just with a patient coordinator, ensuring you are educated and confident in both her skill and ability to listen to and address your beauty goals!
