Breast lift Pittsburgh – What you need to know

Having a breast lift Pittsburgh can create a more youthful and vibrant appearance.  In a breast lift, also known as mastopexy, the surgeon removes excess skin and tightens the tissue around your breast.  This elevates your breasts often giving the appearance of larger breasts at the same time.

Why do breasts fall over time?

Firm breast versus sagging breast

Often, after having children, your breasts can fall due to stretching of your skin.  The ligaments that hold your breasts up become stretched and some may even break.  But there are other factors that contribute as well.  Gravity, age and weight fluctuations can also cause your breasts to look differently than they did when you were in your early 20’s.  This can affect your appearance, but it can also influence how comfortable you are exercising or running.  It can also influence your fashion choices.  Maybe you change the style of tops that you used to wear to a more conservative look to help mask these changes.

Breast lifts are effective and safe

On average the entire procedure takes 2-3 hours.  You are under general anesthesia during your breast lift & will go home the same day after you have recovered.

Now look at the dramatic difference of these pictures.  This lady has truly recreated her look.  Many women choose to have breast implant surgery combined with their breast lift procedure.  This provides a more profound final appearance to your chest.  You can choose from a subtle “boost” in size to a more pronounced enhancement simply by changing your choice of breast implant.  In these cases, the sagging breasts are lifted and are enhanced with an implant.  Do this to change your profile and increase your body self esteem as well.
