Even women with the most beautiful, cared for skin eventually cannot overcome the effects of aging and gravity. As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, leading to a sagging appearance to the skin. This can be particularly troublesome in areas such as your breasts as the skin is expected to support the weight of the breast tissue over the years. During normal aging, weight loss, and breast-feeding, the skin’s elasticity is challenged and becomes thin and stretched. This can cause the breasts to appear and noticeably saggy and deflated in the upper portion.
The appearance of your aging breasts can be greatly enhanced with a breast lift procedure performed by a board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Reynolds in Las Vegas. This procedure, also known as the mastopexy, has multiple benefits including decreasing the loose skin of the breast, raising the nipple to a more youthful looking location, and providing more fullness in the upper portion of the breast. The breast lift procedure can also be easily combined with a breast augmentation that will also allow for increasing the volume of the breast, while at the same time lifting the position of the breast on the chest wall. Many of Dr. Reynolds’ patients are very happy with this procedure and sometimes is a portion of a “mommy make-over” procedure.
