In some cases, a lift is better than an augmentation. This is what Dr Robert Brueck of Associates in Cosmetic Surgery tells women who come to him for breast augmentation. Of course, it depends from patient to patient and each one must first undergo examination.
Breast lifts, for instance, are appropriate for nursing women who have acquired sagging breasts after pregnancy. During this time, their breast tissue had already decreased in size, but the outer skin remains stretched and wouldn’t conform to the breast tissue’s shrunken size. Sagging is one of the considerations, and the degree of which the breast envelops sag (ptosis) is accounted for.
An augmentation can also be combined with a lift if the patient wishes it. However, a red flag goes up in case the patient turns out to be a smoker or taking certain medications as they make complications worse.
Women know their breasts are an important part of their being and they contest that wanting to give their breasts the best look possible doesn’t necessarily equate to vanity. As a steward of beauty, Dr Brueck is out to help them achieve this.
