How can you know if you will need a breast lift, a breast reduction or breast augmentation to fix sagging to create your breasts more young appearing? Additionally it is a top concern for individual consultations in my practice. Breast surgery is always in the Top five procedures for women requesting cosmetic surgery based on the American Society of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Sagging or droopy breasts are frequent concerns for women looking for consultations from plastic surgeons. There are specific procedures which are more successful in addressing these physical findings. Let us begin with the “pencil test” since it’s a very simple and a noticeable way to tell if breast lift surgery may be of help to fix this condition. The pencil test will help to detect true sagging. Put a pencil under your breast in which it’s attached to your chest and when your nipple hangs beneath the pencil when you sit or stand, then you might consider a breast lift.
True sagging or drooping of a woman’s nipples may happen after pregnancy or as a consequence of any dramatic weight gain/loss. True sagging refers to the location of the nipple position under the crease under your breast. I don’t recommend breast lift surgery if nipples are over the crease or in the level of the crease. Breast augmentation is usually sufficient to correct the sagging breast contour typically, where the nipples are over the crease. Positioning the nipples any greater than this could lead to an odd breast look. The size of the areola may also be lowered during the process if desired by the individual.
Breast augmentation or breast reduction may be considered to modify the size, shape and contour of the breasts, when a breast lift wouldn’t be suggested to achieve the desired progress. Breast surgery is frequently part of the joint procedures commonly referred to Mommy Makeovers, together with abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. Mommy Makeovers are intended to deal with undesired physical changes that may persist after pregnancy.
