Gravity, the scientific principle that literally keeps us “grounded,” often results in unwanted effects on other parts of our bodies. Weight loss, pregnancy, intense aerobic activity and genetics can make our once perky breasts sag and lose their shape, leaving us feeling self-conscious with a tendency to cover up. A state-of-the-art Breast Lift in Denver by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Buford leaves gravity behind. A breast lift procedure, often performed in conjunction with Dr. Buford’s revolutionary “Invisible Bra,” will help restore the perkiness we remember from our younger years. So if you desire firmer, higher, youthful looking breasts with symmetry and sex appeal, call BEAUTY by BUFORD today to schedule your Breast Lift. Who knows, with a breast lift…you may even feel “18” again.
Do I need a breast lift?
One of the most commonly asked questions of an experienced cosmetic breast surgeon such as Dr. Buford is, “Do I need a breast lift?” To answer this question, several factors are evaluated including the following:
- Where is your nipple relative to the inframammary fold? For the most part, if your nipple is at or below the level of your fold, you probably need a breast lift.
- How loose is your breast skin?
- Is there excess skin? If so, how much?
- What is the size and position of your areola?
And so what actually causes drooping? Again, there are several factors that can lead to sagging breasts and includes:
- Significant weight loss
- Pregnancy/breast feeding
- The aging process
When your breasts droop, several things can happen. First, your nipple generally falls to a lower position. Next, your areola might enlarge (this is generally the result of pregnancy related changes). But the most important thing that leads to drooping of your breasts is the stretching of supportive structures within your breast known as Cooper’s Ligaments. When these lengthen and weaken, the internal framework of the breast is compromised and the breast itself elongates, droops, and converts to a oval shape. In addition, many women notice increasing asymmetry of their breasts which becomes more noticeable as they droop.
To lift your breasts, three basic type of procedures can be performed:
- Crescentic Lift
- Vertical Dermal Lift
- Extended Vertical dermal
Depending upon which type of lift Dr. Buford recommends, the procedure can accomplish any one or more of the following:
- Reduce the size of your areola
- Reposition your nipples
- Reshape your breasts
- Replace lost volume (when performed in combination with a breast augmentation)
Regardless of the cause, Dr. Buford can help restore a more perky but natural size and shape to your breasts which will compliment your figure and give you a result that you will be pleased with for years to come.
