Case 16: A crooked and overprojected nose draws the eye away from other beautiful features. In this pretty young woman, you can see how rhinoplasty transforms her face. Even at this early 3-month point, we see that her nose is more feminine and no longer dominates her otherwise delicate features. And, at the same time, it is balanced and ethnically-appropriate.
Over time, pregnancy, weight changes and aging take their toll. Your breasts may have changed in shape and size. You used to have full perky breasts but now, they just sag. They're elongated and flattened against your body. Your areolas are also enlarged and irritation has developed within your breast folds. That's why breast lifts are so popular! In one 5-year study of 125 women in the Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery, 91.5% reported that their expectations for their breast lifts were met or exceeded. 89.3% reported an improved self-esteem and 69.5% reported an improved quality of life as a result of their breast lift procedure. This makes breast lifts an effective way to regain self-esteem and reclaim your youthful appearance.
Case 4: Some might think that this patient had had previous rhinoplasty with tip collapse, but she did not. Occasionally, the shape of the tip cartilages is very vertically-oriented, causing a deep groove in the nostril. She felt this, along with her marked tip crookedness, drew unwanted attention to her nose. Now, her nose is smaller, smoother, more defined, and just blends with the rest of her face.
Aging can affect our entire bodies. For women, their breasts can lose their shape and volume creating a saggy and disproportionate chest appearance. Gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight fluctuations can also add to the breasts’ loss of definition. A breast lift, otherwise known as a mastopexy, can correct the aforementioned issues and restore the breasts allowing them to appear perky and more youthful.
