Having upright, firm and well-formed breasts can very much influence the perception of beauty as well as notions of attractiveness. Age, post-pregnancy, and childbirth can all affect breast appearance, making them sag, droop, and appear less attractive. Sagging breasts or breast ptosis occurs naturally as you age. Sagging breasts can add years to your actual age and can wreak havoc on your self-esteem, making you overly conscious of what you wear and how you are perceived.
Traditionally, women have turned to breast augmentation as a solution to sagging breasts. However, not all women want to undergo surgery and deal with having breast implants. For women who do not wish to have their breasts augmented (for whatever reason), breast auto-augmentation is a viable alternative.
What Is Breast Breast Auto-Augmentation?
Breast Auto-Augmentation or BAA, is a procedure where your body’s own tissue is used to firm up and boost your breast’s volume. This method cleverly repositions or redistributes your existing breast tissue from the bottom part of your breast. The result is a fuller-looking breast without the need for any synthetic implants such as silicone or saline.
By combining a breast lift with an autologous augmentation, Dr. Alderman can redistribute your existing breast tissue to create breasts that look and feel totally natural. If you are already satisfied with the size of your breasts, but are hoping to restore a more youthful, uplifted breast contour without using saline or silicone implants, a breast lift and auto augmentation may be right for you.
An additional benefit of an auto-augmentation breast lift is that the procedure usually produces results that look totally natural, without the appearance of having work done.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?
Women who are ideal candidates for a breast lift procedure share several common characteristics:
- In good physical and mental health and within a healthy body weight
- Have breasts that are sagging or have begun to lose their youthful volume and shape
- Have breasts with a flatter, more elongated appearance
- Unsupported nipples falling below the crease of their breasts
- Nipples and areolas that point downward
- Stretched skin and enlarged areolas
- One breast that sits lower than the other, creating breast asymmetry
- Decreased self-confidence
A breast lift with auto-augmentation is ideal for women whose breasts have begun to droop, but who still have enough natural breast tissue to allow Dr. Alderman to redistribute it to provide the optimal shape for your breasts.
