After pregnancy and breastfeeding come to an end, it is natural for breasts to lose their previous shape. Once milk dries, it can deflate the breasts, leaving the nipples lower and the structure less flattering. Many mothers seek options to take back what they once had. While you may want to improve your breasts, the idea of breast augmentation may not be suitable for you. What you may not know is that there are other options that do not require the use of implants.
Breast Augmentation Alternative: Breast Lift and Fat Grafting
A breast lift, otherwise known as a mastopexy, is a procedure where the breast tissue and nipples are lifted, and excess skin is removed. That creates a firmer, perkier look and feel to the breasts.
A breast lift can be performed adding fat grafting. Fat grafting is a process that involves taking fat from one area of your body to move it to another. The surgeon will use liposuction as a means of removing the fat from your abdomen, thighs, or any other area that has a higher volume of fat deposits. It is then processed and ready for the transfer.
The fat is used to add volume to the breasts by filling in the areas which tend to show more deflation postpartum. With the combination of the breast lift and fat grafting, the surgeon shapes the fat in the breast to create a favorable, natural shape.
Breast Lift Procedure
During the breast lift, your doctor will make three tiny incisions by which the breasts are reshaped easily. The incisions will be placed around your areolae, downward from the areolae, and horizontally along your breast crease line.
The stitching, adhesive, or taping will be put in place to secure the positioning of the breasts. While you will notice an immediate change in appearance afterward, it does take some time for the breast tissue to settle in their permanent position.
