Large droopy breasts can make you look older, but a breast lift without implants can make a world of difference to the appearance of your breasts. The procedure will improve the shape of the breasts, and will also raise the nipple/areola area to a higher position. Because of this change, the breasts will look fuller and perkier.
Why Choose a Breast Lift
When the skin that holds up the breasts starts to lose elasticity, then the breasts will droop and sag. This may be due to weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as the natural aging process. When the breasts begin to hang, this is a clear signal that the skin is unable to hold up the existing weight of the breasts. Therefore a breast lift is necessary.
Some surgeons choose to do a breast lift with implants, but the implants must be properly fitted in order to achieve the best outcome. If they are not, then the results will not look natural. However, it is possible to get fuller, shapelier breasts, by doing a breast lift without implants.
The incision for the breast lift is usually made around the areola, and in some cases a vertical incision may also be required. During the operation loose skin is removed, and the breast tissue remolded into a higher position. In addition, the skin is recontoured over the existing tissue. The nipple is also repositioned.
The best candidates for a breast lift without implants are women that have drooping breasts, which are not very large. Candidates should also be healthy individuals who are maintaining a stable weight, and are not obese. The procedure is recommended for women that have finished having children, and not for those who are pregnant or breast feeding.
