In Bloomington and Champaign, breast lift procedures are frequently requested by women who want to enhance their appearance and improve their self-esteem. Pregnancy, nursing, or weight loss can result in lost breast volume as well as sagging. When women’s breasts begin to look deflated or sag, it can impact them both physically and psychologically. Reasons like these are why many women choose to undergo breast lift surgery.
During breast lift surgery at my practice, I lift the breasts by removing some of the extra, stretched-out skin and then suturing the skin below the breasts to make them tighter and perkier. Women with large, heavy breasts may want to combine a breast lift with a breast reduction. In those cases, I will remove the excess breast tissue to relieve the chronic back and shoulder pain they experience from having large breasts.
Breast lifts usually cause the breasts to appear fuller naturally. For women who have lost a great deal of natural breast volume, breast implants may be an option. In either case, make sure to discuss your unique anatomy and goals with a qualified surgeon.
