Can Breast Enhancement Take Years Off Your Look?

by | Feb 19, 2019 | Plastic Surgeon Feature

Dr. Sophie Bartsich is a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City with an expertise in procedures that result in beautifully sculpted breasts. Her patients come to her for help with a wide range of cosmetic breast issues that can be corrected with plastic surgeries such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction. In her Charlotte’s Book article, “How Your Breasts Are Revealing Your Age,” Dr. Bartsich discusses the ways that women’s breasts can impact their overall appearance. From how old a woman looks to how heavy she appears, the anatomy of her breasts plays a significant role in the way she is perceived by others as well as how she feels about herself.

The Importance of Cleavage

Cleavage is most often thought of as a sexual part of a woman’s look, but it can play an important role in the story her breasts tell about her body. Dr. Bartsich explains that the breasts are divided into four parts, and the upper-inner part, or cleavage line, is the most essential part of the breast. This is because it reveals where the real volume of the breasts lies. If a woman has larger breasts that hang somewhat low, chances are the majority of their volume will be at the lower portion, which will negatively affect the cleavage line. A breast reduction or breast lift can help in this situation.

Dr. Bartsich says, “Granted, taking off excess weight is key to the medical component of the procedure, but restoring form and contour is what truly creates patient satisfaction. A properly performed breast sculpting procedure can literally take years off your appearance, especially when you’re naked.”

Why Bigger isn’t Always Better

We may not think of it this way at first, but breast reduction can be a form of breast enhancement in the sense that it improves the shape of your breasts as well as your body. The procedure not only solves the neck and back pain problems that these patients experience, but also gets rid of the heaviness they feel because of their large breasts. Breast reduction, often combined with a breast lift, results in lighter, perkier, more manageable breasts that can better fit a woman’s lifestyle and look.

Dr. Bartsich has seen impressive outcomes on her patients’ bodies after breast reduction. She says,“One of the most dramatic effects of a breast reduction surgery is that, for some patients, it actually makes them look like they lost 20 pounds. Removing one pound of breast tissue can mimic losing ten, and downsizing shirt sizes by two units.”

Nipple Placement

Dr. Bartsich believes, “In many ways, the nipple is the face of the breast much as the belly button is the face of the belly. Even a beautiful breast will look less pretty, and sometimes even strange, with the nipple in the wrong spot.” With any form of breast enhancement, careful attention should be paid to the positioning, size, and shape of the nipple so that it stays in proportion with the rest of the breast. Sagging breasts usually have drooping or downward pointing nipples, and a breast lift can help with both of these issues.

Breast Enhancement With the IDEAL IMPLANT

For her patients who desire additional volume for their breasts, Dr. Bartsich offers the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured implant that is filled with saline, combining the beauty of silicone gel implants with the peace of mind of saline implants. It provides the feminine shape and volume that complement a woman’s frame without the hassle or worry that are often associated with silicone gel implants.

One of the most important things to aim for with breast enhancement is finding the size and shape that fits with the rest of your body, because it will be the cherry on top of your overall look. Dr. Bartsich says, “Lifted and proportional breasts are the cornerstone of a fit physique, along with a taut waistline, which is why these procedures are the basis of the ‘mommy makeover.’”

Taking Years Off Your Look With Breast Enhancement Procedures

In her article, “How Your Breasts Are Revealing Your Age,” Dr. Bartsich explains why she believes plastic surgery for the breasts can make women look younger, slimmer, and even stand a little taller. She says, “People don’t often think about breast surgery when they think about a rejuvenating procedure, but they should.” Whether your breasts look deflated, saggy, or too heavy for your frame, Dr. Bartsich’s expertise in the art of plastic surgery can restore a more youthful, perky, and confident look to your overall appearance.
