Breast lift surgery addresses sagging breast tissue, helping to produce a firmer, perkier, and more desirable breast mound. Factors that influence breast sagging include weight fluctuations, pregnancy and nursing, genetics, and gravity. Some of these things are within your control. For example, you can help to maintain your breast lift results by remaining within the same weight range and not becoming pregnant. Things like genetic factors and the effect gravity has as we age, however, will continue to have an impact on the perkiness of your breasts.
Breast lift surgery can produce results for several years – 15 or more in some cases – but results will begin to diminish as time passes. You may be able to help minimize the impact of gravity on your breasts by choosing a supportive bra. Leading a healthy and active lifestyle may assist in keeping tissue firmer in general, although it is unrealistic to expect breast lift results to last forever. The best way to determine how long your results might last is through a one-on-one consultation with an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Robert J. Brueck.
Fat Grafting with Breast Lift
Fat grafting for breast enhancement helps to improve the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with breast lift surgery to help produce a fuller and more voluminous bust, which may assist in keeping breasts firm for a longer period.
As an additional benefit, breast enhancement with fat grafting utilizes fat taken from your own body, allowing for ideal contouring of the donor area as well. Typical sites for fat harvesting include the buttocks, hips, thighs, and abdomen. When contoured through liposuction, these areas can serve to complement surrounding features and accentuate the results of your breast enhancement procedure.
