How Does a Breast Lift Work?
When the skin of the breasts begins to sag, volume is lost, or nipples begin to point downward rather than forward, it can really damage self-esteem. A breast lift at LPS is a comprehensive procedure designed to restore the breast profile to pleasing proportions, for a more balanced figure.
There are a variety of techniques to customize the procedure for individual patient concerns and anatomical features. Typically, incisions are made to access the breast tissue for repositioning. Excess skin is removed to tighten and shape the contours of the breast, and if necessary, the areola and nipples may be resized and better positioned to point forward instead of downward (a condition known as ptosis). The result is lifted breasts with an attractive shape that balances out your body’s proportions.
How Does Breast Augmentation Work?
Small breasts may be out of proportion in the breast-to-hip ratio and lacking forward projection, which can also lead to insecurity. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because it gives women control over their breast size and contour.
Breast augmentation is one of the most versatile procedures, too, because the options create quite the array of outcomes. These include saline or silicone implants, the shape of the implant itself, if the implant is placed above (subglandular) or below (submuscular) the pectoralis muscle, and how the implant is inserted. Incision placement is also a consideration, either around the areola, in the armpit, under the inframammary fold, or even through the belly button for a scarless final result. Each of these choices influences the overall result for natural, shapely breasts. Additionally, and alternatively to implants, some patients may benefit from fat injection into the breasts, harvested through liposuction of other body parts.
