Of course, certain cosmetic surgeries are more involved than others. Dermal filler injections are not as invasive as a breast lift procedure. The latter surgery requires more careful attention to pre-op instructions to reduce the risk of complications. The breast lift procedure is designed to lift drooping breasts back into a higher,...Read More

The breasts will rapidly lose volume once the infant is weaned. Unfortunately, the breasts do not always revert back to their pre-pregnancy size and shape. In addition, the breasts and nipple-areola complex may sag or droop or change in size or volume, or the breast skin may develop stretch marks. This can cause women to feel self-conscious about the...Read More

A breast lift procedure (mastopexy) is designed to lift up sagging, drooping breasts to give them a more youthful and full appearance. Although the procedure can be done in conjunction with a breast reduction or a breast augmentation procedure, the recovery for just a breast lift is generally shorter than for either of the other two procedures alone. Recovery time will depend on the amount of work needed to meet the patient’s goals. Breast lifts can involve a simple repositioning of the...Read More

When it comes to weight loss, the first areas of the body to gain weight (such as the abdomen and thighs) are often the last areas to respond to diet and exercise. Conversely, the last areas of the body to gain weight often respond well to weight loss methods. This is why it is not uncommon for women to lose weight in their breasts before they start to see any change in love handles or thighs.

Over time, the breasts may sag, and stretch marks may develop. Those women who have...Read More
