In my practice, I see a lot of patients who are concerned that their breasts are showing their age. Growing older naturally leads to changes in reproductive hormones that dictate the tissue and structure of breasts. The result is that, over time, your breasts begin to lose their firmness and fullness. While this process is completely natural, many women understandably wish to reverse these signs of age. Here are three tips for maintaining full, youthful-looking breasts.
When it comes to the aging body, it’s important to eliminate as many factors as possible that could do further damage. While the fact that that cigarette smoking is bad for your health may be common knowledge, did you know smoking can also be bad for your breasts? Smoking cigarettes has been directly correlated with premature sagging. This is one habit to cut out that your body will thank you for!
Wear Supportive Bras
Are your bras giving you the support you need? A bra that fits properly may be the simplest and most effective solution for slowing the downward decline of breast tissue. Not only can a well-fitted, supportive bra help you look great, some extra support now can also help prevent further sagging down the road.
Consider a Breast Lift
If your breasts are sagging considerably, consider the benefits of a breast lift. I often perform this procedure on women who are concerned with fallen breasts. With a lift, the breasts are elevated and reshaped to give your figure a more youthful, perky appearance.
Aging breasts are a natural part of life, but with today’s surgical techniques, there’s no reason to let sagging breasts bring down your self-esteem. Consider these suggestions to help you look as young on the outside as you feel on the inside.
Even after breast augmentation, some women may find that they’re not quite happy with their new look for a number of reasons. Whether thinking about changing implants from saline to silicone gel, adjusting size or just wanting to update your look, I can help you meet your goals with breast implant revision.
A Size That’s Just Right
Choosing the ideal implant size is one of the biggest challenges for many women. Some may feel their implants are too small for the look they want, while others find larger implants overwhelming. I offer Vectra 3D imaging for my patients, making it possible to see how different implant sizes, shapes and profiles could look before making a final decision about your surgery.
Women may choose revision surgery to trade their saline implants for silicone gel (or vice versa), or to exchange implants for other reasons. Implants may also need to be replaced due to leak or rupture, although this occurs only rarely. Implant replacement may be included as part of treatment in cases of capsular contracture, the excessive growth of scar tissue around the implant.
Implants and Age
Breast implants are not lifetime devices, but they can last a very long time. Older women who first got their implants in their early 20s may feel, many years later, that their current silhouette doesn’t quite suit their age any more. Getting new implants is a great way to ensure natural-looking breast augmentation results at any age.
