Breast implants aren’t your only breast enhancement option, and they’re certainly not for everybody. In fact, if your breasts already feel overly large, are sagging or a combination of both, getting implants is probably the last thing on your mind. But you could reap these great benefits of a breast reduction and lift combo.
Say Goodbye to Drooping
Lots of different factors can make your breasts lose volume and/or skin elasticity, including weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding and aging. Unfortunately, this often leads to a drooping or sagging appearance that can’t be corrected with breast implants. If you’re looking for a perkier and more youthful look, talk to an experienced cosmetic surgeon about a breast lift on its own or in combination with a breast reduction.
Go on a Shopping Spree
If bigger breasts have always limited your shopping selection to the (extremely limited) DD or larger section, you could be in for a pleasant surprise after your breast enhancement. Smaller cup sizes tend to be more common, so there’s often a much larger selection of cute lingerie and swimsuit tops D, C or B cups. Plus, you might even get your new bras at a better price, since some larger sizes cost more than their smaller counterparts.
Enjoy Your Favorite Sports Again
Any woman with oversized breasts can attest to the fact that playing sports—or engaging in any type of exercise or physical activity, for that matter—causes some major problems if you’ve been graced with large breasts.
If you’re uncomfortable jogging, swimming or playing tennis or other sports, even with the most supportive bra you can find, a breast reduction and lift combo might be the answer you’ve been searching for.
Banish Back Pain
Another common ailment that comes along with larger breasts is constant back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the extra weight of your chest. A surefire sign that you could be an excellent candidate for a breast reduction are those painful red marks you get on the tops of your shoulders from your bra straps being pulled downward all day long.
Bigger breasts can cause skin chafing and infections, but a breast reduction/breast lift combo can help.
Get More Balanced Body Proportions
Oversized breasts can sometimes appear out of balance with the rest of your curves. Women who feel that they look “top heavy” might consider getting a breast reduction combined with a breast lift to achieve a more balanced shape.
Hello, Pre-Baby Body
Having trouble working off the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding on your body? In the case of drooping, deflated breasts, improving your figure unfortunately isn’t going to be possible through diet and exercise alone. But not to worry—a breast lift can help you to get back the firm, youthful look and feel you enjoyed before your little bundle of joy arrived.
If you’re interested in a more dramatic change, add a tummy tuck, feminine rejuvenation or other procedures to your breast enhancement and treat yourself to a mommy makeover.
Regain Your Self-Confidence
Oversized or sagging breasts can make many women feel self-conscious when wearing certain clothing, especially as swimsuit season kicks into full gear. Combining a breast lift and reduction can not only give you the smaller, more modest-looking breast size you want, but it’ll also help to reposition your breasts higher on up on your chest so you can even pass the pencil test and start feeling confident in yourself again.
