Loss of Breast Volume
Loss of volume and fullness in the breasts is a very common side-effect of pregnancy and breastfeeding. The breast skin can lose its elasticity and take on a saggy or droopy appearance, making them look less full. Sometimes, in the months after childbirth, the breasts will renew themselves naturally and the extra skin will dissipate somewhat; but oftentimes, the breasts will not regain their original fullness and shape.
Breast augmentation with implants can address this. As part of a Mommy Makeover procedure, breast augmentation can increase your cup-size and give the breasts a fuller, more shapely appearance. You and Dr. Tiffany McCormack will decide the size, shape, and type of implants that will best suit your goals at your initial consultation. Using Portrait 3D Imaging software, Dr. McCormack can also show you images of what your breasts may ultimately look like with breast implants, before you even set foot in the operating room. Although it can’t predict the future with 100 percent accuracy, this technology can give you a general idea as to the results, and you can see what you may look like with a variety of different implant types.
Breast lift surgery without implants may also be beneficial. If your breasts are exhibiting a saggy appearance, a breast lift removes extra fat and tightens the breast skin, ultimately lifting the breasts to a higher, more “perky” position.
Along with stretching of the abdominal muscles and skin, loss of breast volume is one of the most common and visually apparent after-effects of having children. Dr. McCormack can help you restore volume and shape to the breasts with beautiful, natural-looking results.
