How Kirkland, WA breast lift procedure can refine your curves

Firm, gracefully rounded breasts are a hallmark of youthful feminine beauty. Over time, the effects of aging, childbearing, weight changes, and other factors can lead to sagging and drooping. For women who wish to restore youthful curves, breast lift surgery from Mark H. Tseng, MD – Plastic & Aesthetics in Kirkland or Auburn, WA can be an excellent option.

Why choose a breast lift?

Pendulous, sagging, or deflated breasts can occur for several reasons, most commonly:

  • Effects of aging – You have probably read about age-related skin laxity and volume loss, associated with decreasing collagen and elastin. This is typically discussed in relation to facial wrinkles, but it affects your entire body, including your breasts. Thin, stretched skin cannot support tissues as well, contributing to drooping and loss of shape in the breasts.
  • Weight loss – When you shed pounds, you might plan to lose the belly and keep the breasts. Unfortunately, we have no choice about where our bodies store fat or shed it. Weight gain increases breast size, and skin stretches to accommodate. When the weight comes off, that new volume is gone, and skin is left stretched and lax.
  • Pregnancy – Breasts swell with natural milk production, which has a similar effect to gaining weight. Once skin and tissues are stretched out, the original shape and firmness don’t return.

What you should know about the breast lift procedure

There are a few types of breast lift surgery techniques. Additionally, this procedure may be performed alone, or in combination with augmentation or reduction. Dr. Tseng will recommend the best option to achieve your aesthetic goals.

  • Surgery – Like any surgery, there are some risks associated with breast lifts. However, it is considered a quite safe procedure with a low rate of complications. Anesthesia is used to keep you comfortable during surgery.
  • Recovery – Post-treatment breast lift pain is generally minimal and easily managed with medication. Downtime varies, though most patients can return to work about a week after surgery. You will need to avoid strenuous activity for a few months.
  • Results – You will notice an improvement in your body shape right away, with full results developing as swelling subsides. The incisions are strategically located to disguise breast lift scars. Your new breast shape will be long-lasting, although the aging process continues, so new sagging may occur in the future.
