As the years go by, your body naturally experiences changes in body composition and skin elasticity. One of the many body parts affected by the aging process is your breasts. This is even more likely to occur after pregnancy, breastfeeding or significant weight loss.

Many women wanting to rejuvenate the appearance of their breasts will schedule a consultation at Charles V. Pledger, MD. If you’re averse to breast implants, Dr. Charles V. Pledger might suggest a breast lift. Year after year, this is becoming a more popular option for improving breast profiles and appearances.

In fact, the American Association of Plastic Surgeons estimates that each year breast lifts are performed twice as often as breast augmentations.

This cosmetic surgical treatment is designed to raise the height of your breasts by removing excess skin. This in turn causes a general tightening of the natural breast tissue. Once the skin has fully healed, it will effectively rejuvenate the youthful support and general shape of your breasts.

If you would like, the incision strategy can also include making alterations to the shape, size, and location of your areola.

If you live in the Provo, Utah, area and you’re interested in a breast lift, you should call 801-373-4300 to setup a consultation at Charles V. Pledger, MD.
