Are you unhappy with sagging in your breasts, and are wondering whether you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery? First, make sure that a breast lift is the right breast surgery procedure to correct the concerns you have. One common complaint that a breast lift cannot address is hollowness in the upper part of the breast. To correct hollowness in the upper breast requires breast augmentation, though if you have sagging as well, Dr. Bottger may recommend a breast lift with breast implants for enhanced results. Issues a breast lift can correct include:
- Flat, elongated, or hanging breasts
- Nipples that fall below the breast crease
- Nipples that point downward
- Breasts with stretched skin and enlarged areolas
- Breasts that are uneven due to sagging
In addition, you need to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure. If you are a smoker, Dr. Bottger will request that you quit prior to your procedure and throughout the breast lift recovery period to reduce the risk of complications and ensure you heal properly. If you are considering a breast lift, please contact Dr. David Bottger today to schedule your initial consultation at our Philadelphia plastic surgery office.
