Breast Lift in Charleston County, SC
As you age and experience fluctuating hormones, the breasts can change drastically. One of the most common signs of aging and hormone changes is the loss of volume and sagging in the breasts. While it’s not possible to truly prevent breasts from sagging, it is possible to correct it. Led by plastic surgeon Dennis K. Schimpf, MD, MBA, FACS, Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery has offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Hilton Head, South Carolina. We offer breast lifts for women who live in Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities.
What Is A Breast Lift?
A breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure that lifts the breasts to enhance the shape and position of the chest. A breast lift is performed using only your natural tissue (or a previously placed implant, if applicable), and is ideal for women who have experienced a droopiness in the breasts due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss.
How is a Breast Lift Performed?
For a breast lift procedure, Dr. Schimpf makes incisions in your breasts to pull the skin taut around your existing underlying breast tissue. Once the skin is taut, the nipples are aligned, and the breast tissue is positioned with volume underneath. Dr. Schimpf will remove excess skin and close the incisions. The result is symmetrical, younger-looking perky breasts.
Do Breast Lifts Result in a Larger Chest?
Many women who experience sagging breasts feel that there has also been a loss in volume of their breasts. It is important to note that a breast lift collects and repositions the volume of the existing breasts but does not result in larger breasts. In some cases, lifted breasts can appear smaller because they are more consolidated with the surrounding skin. For women who wish to have larger breasts, Dr. Schimpf recommends combining the breast lift and breast augmentation procedures.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Breast Lift?
Dr. Schimpf will determine your candidacy for a breast lift at your initial consultation. He will talk to you about your motivation for a breast lift and let you know if you are a strong candidate. He will also discuss any further considerations or suggestions pertaining to your condition and situation. Most often, women who are strong candidates for breast lifts meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Sagging breasts due to nursing or pregnancy
- Sagging breasts due to weight loss
- Sagging breasts due to aging or menopause
- Asymmetrical sagging of the breasts
