North Texas Cosmetic Surgery Renews Self-image With Breast Lifts
Age, childbirth, breastfeeding and daily life can impact a woman’s body, specifically her breasts. The results can negatively affect the way a woman feels about how she looks. At North Texas Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Alan Greenberg offers breast lifts, also known as mastopexy. Sometimes, Dr. Greenberg recommends a breast lift in tandem with breast augmentation to help patients improve their self-confidence and body images.
Popularity of breast lift procedures rises
According to recent findings by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the number of breast lift procedures performed has increased by 70 percent in the last 14 years. Although breast augmentation is still the more common choice, many women are choosing breast lifts as a way to rejuvenate their figures. Breast lifts work to raise the breasts by removing excess skin, tightening the surrounding tissue and reshaping the breast contours.
When to consider a breast lift
Before recommending any cosmetic surgery, Dr. Greenberg will conduct a consultation appointment to discuss your personal goals. The ideal candidate for a breast lift has an adequate amount of breast tissue available, and may or may not want additional enhancement through breast augmentation. A breast lift is designed to create a more attractive silhouette.
Breast lifts can improve the appearance of your breast by:
- Removing excess skin
- Restoring symmetry
- Reducing sagging
- Repositioning the nipple and areola
Breast lifts combined with augmentation
In certain cases, Dr. Greenberg may suggest a breast lift combined with breast implants. With a breast lift, Dr. Greenberg tightens the tissue to produce a more appealing shape; however, this procedure does not add volume to your breasts. By including a breast implant with the breast lift, Dr. Greenberg can often generate the desired fullness and overall enhancement to their figures that our patients seek.
Dr. Greenberg utilizes tumescent anesthesia along with “twilight anesthesia” for breast lifts
Tumescent anesthesia provides a safe alternative to general anesthesia, with less risk of complications and faster recovery times. This type of anesthesia does not require hospitalization which lessens your expenses. Tumescent anesthesia also allows for less blood loss during surgery and less pain and post anesthesia “hangover” after surgery.
Look and feel your best with a breast lift
If gravity or motherhood has left you less than satisfied with your body, Dr. Greenberg can help you refresh your appearance and restore confidence.
