Women with sagging breasts no longer have to be embarrassed about them. With the help of breast implants in Houston and Houston breast lifts, it is possible to elevate your breasts to create a more youthful appearance.
A breast lift usually takes two hours to complete, and is performed under general anesthesia. While patients may return home on the same day, and can return to work in ten days time, they have to avoid vigorous exercise for two to three weeks. In addition to this, they also have to wear a sports bra without any under wires for two weeks after the plastic surgery.
It is based on the extent of cosmetic surgery that the patient requires that the number and types of incisions used for the surgery is determined. Breast implants are usually placed with a breast lift to minimize the number of incisions in the surgery.
Professionals ensure minimal complications
If performed by a professional plastic surgeon, breast lifts can be safely carried out without any complications. However after a breast lift, the breasts may not be perfectly symmetrical, and there may be a chance of permanent loss of sensation in the nipples and other breast areas.
In case incisions don’t heal well, it’s better to opt for revisional surgery as they may widen scars. All these risks can be avoided by following your physician’s advice both before and after surgery.
Not necessary to periodically remove implants
During a breast lift, the surgeon decides if the breast implant should be placed above or below the muscle. Some surgeons place them below the muscle for softer results as if placed above muscles; the scar tissue around the implant can break to cause breast hardness. In case of trim patients with minimal breast tissue, their muscles also provide additional coverage to the implant to make it look more natural.
Reduced nipple sensation is very rare during a breast lift as the surgeon takes care to ensure that the predictably located nerve to the nipple is protected during surgery. Though some surgeons may suggest removal of the implant every 10-15 years to maintain the breast lift, this is not necessary. It is only if you have problems with the implants, and if they deflate do you have to have them removed and replaced.
