Although many people may not think of breast surgery as a post-weight loss procedure, many women need surgery to restore breast volume and shape. I offer many laser breast surgery procedures at my Los Angeles practice that are particularly helpful for women who want to address two common concerns after weight loss:
- Decreased breast volume
- Breast sagging
How can laser breast surgery help?
Laser breast surgery is beneficial because it both lifts the breasts and restores a fuller, more youthful shape. This procedure involves using excess breast skin (which is normally removed during a traditional breast lift) to create an “internal bra” that both supports the breasts and enhances cleavage.
Where does the laser come in?
A carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is used to treat the outer layers of excess skin at the bottom of the breast so they can be used as a “bra.” The treated skin is then attached to the chest wall to help support the breast.
What are the benefits of a laser breast lift?
In addition to results that feel and appear natural, there are several advantages to this state-of-the-art procedure, including:
- Enhanced upper breast volume without the need for breast implants
- Better breast shape and symmetry
- Perkier breast position
- Longer-lasting results with reduced risk of the breasts “bottoming out”
