Reversing the Impact of Gravity, Nursing & Aging
Through time, the effects of gravity and the reduction of the skin’s natural elasticity can have a negative impact on the look of a woman’s breasts. These factors, combined with pregnancies and nursing, can cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts. Charlotte-area Dr. Ferrari can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). Breast implants combined with mastopexy can increase both firmness and size.
Women often seek to rejuvenate their breasts with a breast lift or “mastopexy” in order to remove excess skin, tighten and raise the breasts and reduce the diameter of the areolas. However, it is important to understand that mastopexy will not significantly change the size of your breasts or add upper breast fullness. Charlotte plastic surgeon Dr. Ferrari will recommend breast reduction for women who want smaller, perkier breasts. Women who want upper breast fullness and/or larger breasts should consider breast augmentation along with mastopexy.
