The Non-Surgical Breast Lift Mastopexy and Its Limitations

The Non-Surgical Breast Lift Mastopexy and Its Limitations

There are many women who wish to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure but are understandably put off by the thought of going under the knife. In 2019, technological advances have presented a range of options that mean invasive techniques are not the only way forward. Some non-surgical options can provide natural-looking results but it is important to be aware that they have their limitations.

One of these options comes in the form of a non-surgical breast lift. The breast lift procedure is about restoring a more desirable positioning of the breast, which may begin to droop or sag as a result of ageing, pregnancy, or weight gain.

The Definition of ‘Non-Surgical’

First, it is important to clarify what the term ‘non-surgical’ refers to. In most cases, non-surgical involves;

  • No anaesthesia
  • No incisions
  • No scalpels
  • No scaring
  • No implants

What is Involved with the Non-Surgical Breast Lift?

In the case of a non-surgical breast lift, the procedure involves a high definition diffused laser which is absorbed by the water around the breast tissue. This causes specific cells to be vaporised, removing a certain amount of tissue.

This leads to an overall tightening of collagen fibers in the skin, creating a mild lift of the area. However, this will not suit everyone, perhaps only those requiring minor lift overall, nor will it be as effective as a proper surgical breast lift procedure.

Why You Should Consider a Surgical Breast Lift

The non-surgical version of the breast lift procedure is only appropriate for women who are physically healthy with realistic expectations of small gain overall. For longer-lasting and more effective results, the surgical breast lift should be considered.

The Breast and Body Clinic always recommends a consultation with Dr. Yunaev, who will assess your situation and discuss your goals. The non-surgical option limits the amount of lifting of the breast that can be achieved to a couple of centimeters at best, so it may not be appropriate for those who wish to address issues caused by aging of the breasts, pregnancy and breastfeeding.

The Benefits of a Breast Lift

The main advantage of the surgical breast lift procedure is a natural look to the breasts that are more youthful with softer and firmer skin, which offers a perkiness with improved skin elasticity.

You will often experience an enhanced fullness of the cleavage and often improved skin colour, texture, and tightness. This procedure can also help to reduce wrinkles, vein appearance, and skin sag while increasing breast and nipple sensitivity.

Do you feel that your breasts don’t sit in the ideal position? A breast lift can help restore the youthful, perky positioning of the breasts that make women feel more comfortable and confident in their appearance.
