As the years go by, life can take a toll out on a woman’s body, especially the breasts. The feel and appearance of breasts can change over the course of a lifetime, depending on weight gain or loss, weight lifting, child birth, or let’s face it, even gravity. Some women are born with good genes, and their breasts maintain their supple nature regardless of their age, but most women have to deal with reality and the fact that breasts don’t stay firm forever. While breast procedures are some of the most common in Dallas, Texas, not every woman wants to enlarge or reduce her breasts. Instead, there are some women who would simply like to lift the breasts, giving them a more youthful and natural appearance. This can easily be done at Dr. Meade’s Dallas cosmetic surgery office.
Dallas breast lift procedures are designed for women who want to keep their natural breasts, but enhance them to reduce sagging or excess fat. Also known as a mastopexy procedure, the breast lift can restore the breasts to their tight, pre-pregnancy or youthful texture and contour. Not only can the procedure reconstruct the breast itself by removing excess fat and skin, but the mastopexy will also improve the tissue surrounding the nipple, or areola, which can also becomes stretched from the same effects. The treatment does not affect the size of the breasts, nor make them fuller or rounder, but rather improves the natural breasts patients are born with. For Texas breast lift patients who also want larger breasts, we suggest a breast augmentation treatment in combination with the lift surgery to achieve the desired results.
If the natural look is what you are searching for, then Dr. Meade can make that dream a possibility. In order to determine if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure, you can schedule a consultation to meet with Dr. Meade and discuss your options. Generally, all mastopexy patients should be in good health, and have a desire to correct certain imperfections of the breasts, including a lack of fullness, asymmetry, stretch marks, loose skin, or nipples that point downward or are too low. The procedure involves small incisions that can be made on the areola or on the breast crease as well. Depending on what you want to achieve with the procedure, Dr. Meade will determine the way to proceed. Usually you can expect to be placed under general anesthesia, but there are some Dallas breast lift treatments in which patients can remain awake. You can expect the breast tissue beneath the skin to be lifted and reshaped, and any loose or excess skin will be removed to tighten the area around the breast. In addition, the nipple and areola can be repositioned to match the newly constructed breast and ensure proportion and symmetry. After the surgery, you must take it easy for a few weeks so your breasts can fully heal. In about 4 to 6 weeks, you can resume your normal exercise routine and enjoy your new, supple, natural breasts.
The breast lift procedure results are long-lasting and will open options for you in terms of clothing and bathing suits. If this sounds like a treatment you might be interested in, call Dr. Ricardo A. Meade today to determine if the breast lift procedure is right for you. If so, you can expect your life to change drastically.
