3. Will a breast lift procedure increase my chances of suffering with breast cancer?
No, a breast lift will not cause you to have cancer. Breast cancer occurs due to breast abnormalities. These abnormalities start in the breast tissue. As the cancer evolves, it may become visible on a mammogram because of identifying microcalcifications. Locating breast lumps in the early stages is crucial for this reason performing your monthly self-examination is essential.
4. Is there more than one technique used to perform a breast lift?
Yes, Dr. Tal Roudner can use a donut (concentric) or anchor-shaped technique when performing a breast lift.
The donut breast lift technique is usually performed on women who have minimal sagging of the breasts. When using this breast lift technique Dr. Tal Roudner removes a circular shaped piece of skin and repositions the breasts.
The anchor-shaped breast lift technique has similar features to the donut breast lift method; however, a greater amount of skin is removed.
5. Are the results of a breast lift permanent?
Yes, however the breasts will continue to be affected by pregnancy, breastfeeding, the natural aging process and weight loss. All of these circumstances can affect the results of your breast lift as they could cause your breast tissues to weaken, leading to droopy breasts once again.
