How long has it been since you stepped out of the shower and saw beautifully contoured, perky breasts in the mirror? In El Paso many breast lift patients have watched helplessly as their breasts slowly migrate south while losing volume and shape. Age, significant weight fluctuation, and having children considerably affect skin laxity and breast structure causing our breasts to sag.
A breast lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon. Mastopexy usually takes one and a half to three and a half hours. Techniques vary, but the most common procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision following the natural contour of the breast. Mastopexy does leave noticeable, permanent scars, although they’ll be covered by your bra or bathing suit. (Poor healing and wider scars are more common in smokers.) The procedure can also leave you with unevenly positioned nipples, or a permanent loss of feeling in your nipples or breasts.
