How to Tell if You Need A Breast Lift or Reduction
Sagging or uncomfortable breasts can cause women to feel self-conscious, negatively impacting their sense of wellbeing. There are a selection of breast plastic surgery procedures today that can help to relieve patient discomfort. Read on to learn more about breast lift and breast reduction, and who is a good candidate for each.
Women who are experiencing sagging breasts due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, and weight loss can benefit from a breast lift. A breast lift works to restore perkiness to the breasts for a more youthful breast appearance. It is important to know that a breast lift cannot increase the size of the breasts; it simply focuses on lifting them.
Breast reduction can help women living with breasts that are too large for their body. Breasts that are too large can cause discomfort and pain, including back pain and shoulder indentations from bras. They can also make taking part in athletic activities difficult and uncomfortable. During the breast reduction procedure, excess breast tissue is removed to create a more proportionate body contour. It should be known that a breast reduction only removes excess fat, and does not lift sagging breasts.
