When breast tissue sags and skin becomes loose, the nipple often becomes displaced in the process. Breast lift surgery improves nipple location, restoring ideal projection while producing a more youthful and attractive breast mound.
During breast lift surgery, the underlying tissue is lifted and firmed. This improves the shape and appearance of the breasts. The nipple is lifted along with the skin, allowing it to be placed in a natural-looking and ideally located position. Excess skin is also eliminated during breast lift surgery. This produces a taught and perkier appearance.
Breast Lift After Breastfeeding
Recently, Kristen Cavallari opened up about why her breasts look “so amazing.” Following a compliment she received on social media, Cavallari did not hold back on what she’s done to make them look so good: "Gonna keep it real with y'all. Got a lift after breast feeding all 3 kids."
Pregnancy and nursing cause significant changes to the breasts. As breasts enlarge, the skin stretches. For some women, this does not result in any issues after they have finished nursing. However, for others, loose and sagging skin, stretch marks, and droopy nipples are inevitable outcomes. In these cases, a breast lift may be exactly what's called for.
Breast lift surgery firms the breasts and relocates the nipple to improve contours. It can also eliminate stretch marks. If volume loss is more than anticipated, breast augmentation can be added to your lift procedure. Augmentation improves breast shape, symmetry, and profile, and is an excellent fit for some women.
Breast and Body
Breast and body procedures can be combined for a more comprehensive transformation following pregnancy. The mommy makeover focuses on the areas of the body that are hardest hit by weight fluctuations, breast enlargement, and metabolic changes. These include:
- The legs: liposuction sculpts and tones the legs from the ankles to the thighs
- The buttocks: BBL adds volume to the buttocks to improve projection and symmetry
- The belly: abdominoplasty reattaches separated abdominal muscles, eliminates loose skin and stretch marks, and draws in the waist
- The neck and face: neck lift, blepharoplasty, and other facial procedures can remove sagging skin, tighten jowls, and create a better rested and more alert appearance
Not every procedure is ideally suited to the needs of each individual. The best way to learn which options will help you reach your goal is through a one-on-one consultation at the Nashua, NH, or North Andover, MA office of Dr. George P. Chatson.
