Our bodies are our greatest assets. It is the one thing that will stay with us throughout our lifetime, so it is important to take care of ourselves. While this does include a healthy diet and exercise to keep our body performing its best, what about our mental health?
This includes confidence and feeling great about ourselves, by knowing that we have a body we are proud of.
However, sometimes nature takes a path other than the one we envision, and it’s not uncommon for there to be certain things about our bodies that we aren’t happy with. For many women, this includes their breasts.
As they are constantly shown and judged in the media, regarding our boobs critically is something that most of us women have done at least once in their life.
Breasts experience many changes throughout the ups and downs of a lifetime – pregnancy, weight change, nursing, ageing and gravity can all have an effect how they look at the end of the day. It can result in saggy breasts that lose their shape and droop, changing in firmness, size and appearance.
So, what can you do about it?
Are your boobs weighing down your confidence?
To breast lift or not to breast lift?
On top of breast augmentations, there are many cosmetic surgery clinics that also offer breast lifts. This type of surgery is also called a mastopexy, and can be applied to breasts of all shapes and sizes. This is performed to perk up the busts so one can strut around with better confidence.
There’s a little stigma surrounding cosmetic surgery, but bottom line is, should you let others tell you what you can and can’t do to your own body? If your misshapen boobs are getting you down, why not consider giving them a lift?
Sometimes, depending on an individual, breast implant surgery will be combined with mastopexy, just to plump them up. However, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has found that breast lifts are now more popular than implants – since 2000, breast lift popularity has shot up 70 per cent!
“Many women are looking for a youthful breast by using the tissue they already have,” ASPS President Robert Murphy says.
A breast lift can help to remove excess skin as a result of pregnancy or weight loss, or, if your breasts are larger and sagging, can reduce the amount of support they’ll need if perked up. It is extremely important to mention any and all worries to your surgeon when considering any operation, because they can help you reach a definite conclusion.
