If you’re suffering from sagging breasts due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding or significant weight loss, it is only natural to want to alleviate the problem. But what are your options?
Breast Lift Tape – Is This Option Right for You?
If you have sagging breasts, you may be wondering if breast lift tape is an option for you. Much like a bra, it can provide support for sagging breasts. While it does provide a limited benefit, it is not a permanent solution to your problem. The tape will support the breasts only as long as it is applied to the skin. And prolonged exposure to the adhesive can result in skin discoloration, blisters or generalized irritation.
Breast lift tape can prove uncomfortable for long-term use. And breast lift tape simply cannot offer the lasting and aesthetically ideal results offered by breast lift surgery.
Breast Lift Surgery – A More Permanent Solution
Unlike breast lift tape, breast lift surgery eliminates the loose and sagging skin, firms the underlying tissue, and corrects nipple placement to give you a natural looking appearance, even when breasts are not covered by clothing.
Also called a mastopexy, breast lift surgery trims and tightens excess skin surrounding the breasts. It will give the breasts a more uplifted appearance, eliminating the sagging that many women experience.
A breast lift won’t significantly change the size of your breasts. However, a breast lift can also be done in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction.
Benefits of a Breast Lift
A breast lift will provide long-lasting results and benefits that are noticed almost immediately. Here are some of the benefits of breast lift surgery:
- Perkier, firmer breasts
- Forward-facing nipples
- Symmetry of the breasts
- Appearance of “younger” breasts
- Restored volume in the top half of the breasts
This is a safe and effective procedure that will offer a long-lasting solution to sagging breasts.
