Losing weight is a massive achievement and all your hard work is something that should be celebrated. There is nothing better than looking into the mirror and being happy with the way you look.

However, some women find that once they reach their ideal weight, their body has changed in both positive and negative ways.

Whilst they look healthier and thinner, dramatic weight loss can cause excess skin to stretch and it often doesn’t go back to its regular size on its own. This is commonly the case with the skin surrounding the breasts.

Sagging skin in the breast tissue is to be expected after a big weight loss, even though it could be a gradual loss. The breasts tend to take on a “deflated” look that can be frustrating and upsetting for a lot of women, especially because it can be quite noticeable.

 

 

With this in mind, you may be wondering if there is anything that can be done to make them look firm once again.

Breast Uplift Surgery

For a lot of women who discover the not-so-pleasant after-effects of losing a large amount of weight, undergoing surgery is often the only option.

Mastopexy, otherwise known as a Breast Uplift, is a surgical procedure that a lot of women choose to have after extreme weight loss, or following the birth of children or/and months of breast-feeding. When the breasts have lost their shape or begin to sag, mastopexy aims to reshape and raise the breasts, without altering the volume as per breast augmentation.

The surgical procedure involves removing the excess skin around the breasts, repositioning the areola and raising up both the nipple and tissue in order to give it a much more attractive and “supple” appearance. The nipple is altered to remain in proportion with the rest of the breast, without taking away sensation or your ability to breast feed.

Is a Breast Lift Right For You?

If you feel like your confidence in your body has been knocked despite achieving fantastic weight loss results, breast lift surgery is a fantastic option to consider. It can be carried out on its own or alongside breast augmentation/breast reduction, depending on the look you want to achieve.

Every patient is different and therefore the procedure is personalised to each individual as much as possible, in order to ensure the very best result. There are a number of different considerations to keep in mind, including the amount of skin that needs to be removed and what end result the patient is looking for after the surgery. However, the main thing is that your breasts should return to looking more “perkier”.

 

It’s also the ideal solution for women who are unable to have breast implants. The procedure lifts the breasts so that they are more pert, without having to insert a foreign object.

Still not convinced that a breast lift is for you? Here at the Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we can use a 3D scanner that allows us to project a prototype of what your breasts will look like following the surgery, giving you complete peace of mind.
