Everyone celebrates motherhood in May, but loved ones often forget that pregnancy and nursing take a toll on women’s bodies – especially on their breasts. No longer full and perky, post-pregnancy breasts often become flat and droopy. Perhaps it’s time for a Mother’s Day gift that lifts your spirits.
Breasts often appear awesome during pregnancy. Breast volume can increase about a cup size thanks to larger milk glands, added weight and greater blood flow. But all good things must come to an end.
Dr. Alan Greenberg, a board-certified obgyn and cosmetic surgeon of the body, breasts and extremities, works with women throughout their childbearing years. He has helped mothers in Frisco, Plano, Dallas and North Texas reshape their feminine figures with a breast lift or breast augmentation.
It’s not just pregnancy that causes breasts to fall. The changes that occur with breastfeeding, significant weight fluctuations and reduced skin elasticity from aging can benefit from a breast lift or breast augmentation.
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, can address the following.
Mastopexy alone cannot provide rounder, fuller breasts. Dr. Greenberg often recommends combining a breast lift with breast augmentation. Most clients choose silicone or saline implants to guarantee a specific amount of volume. A fat transfer to the breasts is requested by women who only want a little more shaping. On the other hand, those who have always had large breasts may want to take advantage of breast reduction surgery at this time.
You do so much for your family throughout the year. Take this time to do something for yourself. Contact your Frisco cosmetic surgeon to find out how you can enhance your self-image with a breast lift or breast augmentation. Treat yourself to a gift you’ll enjoy for many years.
