As rewarding as pregnancy and childbirth can be, many mothers are not nearly as thrilled about their breast appearance after expanding their families as they are about the new addition to the household. While it was once believed that pregnancy meant that women needed to sacrifice their youthful, sexy appearance, this is no longer the case with the assistance of cosmetic surgery. Here is a closer look at three of the most common procedures that can help women regain their pre-pregnancy breasts.
Women who have lost breast volume due to the weight fluctuations and hormonal changes associated with pregnancy can benefit from breast implants. With the addition of either saline or silicone implants, women can restore lost volume in their breasts or add that extra boost that they may have always wanted.
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift restores a youthful breast appearance by raising the bust line to a higher, perkier position. During a breast lift, your surgeon not only uplifts the breasts, but also reshapes the breast tissue for a more rounded profile, repositions the nipples and resizes the areolas if necessary.
Combined Implants & Lift
A combined augmentation and lift allows women to experience the best of both worlds: augmented breasts for increased volume, as well as a perky, lifted silhouette. This combined surgery can be accomplished in one procedure, during which your surgeon first inserts implants into the breasts before lifting them to a higher position, smoothing the skin and tissue around the new breast shape, excising extra skin and repositioning the nipples if needed. Women who undergo a combined implant and lift often feel younger and sexier with their new body shape.
