Get Your Body Back after Pregnancy with a Breast Lift
By Sheryl Pilcher on April 18, 2015
Most females go into pregnancy knowing that it will change their body in dramatic ways. Still, it can be surprising when pregnancy and breast feeding are over, but the body has still not returned to its pre-pregnancy state. The fluctuations in weight, shifting of body fat, and stretching of the skin that occurs during and after pregnancy can leave the skin loose and is likely to have a particular effect on the shape of the breasts. A breast lift can restore a perkier and more youthful looking bust line by eliminating excess skin and lifting the breasts to a more pleasing position. A breast lift after pregnancy can help our San Antonio patients get back their pre-pregnancy figure and improve self-confidence.
Any woman who has noticed changes in the shape of her breasts or who has drooping nipples is a likely candidate for a breast lift procedure. Women who have experienced one or more pregnancies are particularly good candidates because they are likely to have experienced a fluctuation in the size of their breasts. The breasts often become enlarged during pregnancy (in preparation for breast feeding). Once pregnancy and breast feeding are over, many women see the breasts shrink back down in size. Unfortunately, the skin of the breasts often remains stretched, resulting in breasts that are droopy and lacking in shape. These changes to not respond diet and exercise, and will require a breast lift procedure to restore the shape and position of the breasts.
The Breast Lift Procedure
A breast lift is not a one-size-fits-all type of procedure. Dr. Sheryl Pilcher carefully plans each procedure to meet the unique needs of her patients. She offers a variety of breast lift techniques that can subtle or more dramatic results. If necessary, this procedure can even be combined with a breast augmentation to enhance breast size.
During the breast lift procedure, patients will be put under general anesthesia. This ensures that the surgery will be pain-free and that patients will have no memories of the procedure. An incision will be made (the type of incision will be dependent on what technique has been chosen to best meet each patient’s needs) and excess fat and tissue will be removed. During a breast lift, Dr. Pilcher can successfully lift breast tissue and reposition and/or resize the nipple to create a perkier and more youthful bust line, as well as to improve the overall shape and firmness of the breasts.
Breast lift procedures have proven to be very successful for our patients and have helped a great number of women reclaim their pre-pregnancy figures. This procedure can enhance the bust line while maintaining a natural beauty that allows women to feel sexy and confident again after pregnancy.
