Essential Facts about Breast Lift Surgery in Chicago
Having stunning breasts is not only a matter of how big or voluptuous they are. The positioning of your breasts also adds up to make enviable, perfect breasts. Sometimes, a woman’s breasts can become saggy, or out of shape as a result of having kids, breastfeeding or aging. However, breast lift surgery can bring your breasts back in pristine shape, making them firm and stunning.
Let’s take a look at the important information about a breast lift procedure.
What is it?
In a breast lift, Dr. John A. Kotis makes small incisions to remove the excess stretched out skin in and around your breast tissue, as well as to reshape the breast tissue. Typically, Dr. John A. Kotis will try to raise the nipples and push the areola forward to give your breasts a more youthful and fresh look. Despite the fact that it is called a breast lift surgery, even large breasts can be reduced by way of the surgery to give you more proportionate-looking breasts.
Why do People Want to Get a Breast Lift?
Some of the common reasons people turn to breast lift surgery are outlined below.
- To improve the volume and contour of the breast, because of dramatic weight loss
- To reverse the sag in breasts as a result of breastfeeding and pregnancy
- To get rid of the drooping breasts and fit into bikinis and dresses for a better style statement
Types of Breast Lift
There are at least 4 different types of breast lifts that can be performed. Each of them is significantly different to the other and the type of breast lift is performed keeping in mind the way you look, and the way you want your breasts to look. Here is a low down on all 4.
· Benelli Lift
This is also known as the apex or donut lift and it basically involves Dr. John A. Kotis removing skin from around the entire areola area.
· Anchor Lift
Dr. Kotis usually recommends this procedure on patients that have excess breast skin. This Plastic Surgery procedure will not only remove skin from around the areola but also areas above and below the breast.
· Lollipop Lift
Also known as a vertical mastopexy lift, this procedure gives your breasts a greater lift than Crescent and Benelli lifts but less than the lift you get from an Anchor one.
· Crescent Lift
Dr. John A. Kotis recommends this procedure for patients who are looking to have as little invasion as possible, this is the perfect method. It makes the smallest of incision to remove a small mood shaped crescent from the areola to give it a lift.
Typically, Dr. Kotis recommends that patients with severe volume discrepancy have a breast augmentation done along with a breast lift.
