Breast lift is a popular cosmetic procedure. Even though more and more women have benefited from a breast lift, still more of them consider the procedure for the wrong reasons. Here are some of the common myths about breast lift that we have busted for you.
Myth #1: Breast lift can get rid of your stretch marks.
Many women believe that when a breast lift is done, stretch marks will be gone for good as the procedure involves removal of some skin. The truth is that a breast lift does not remove any skin all the time, so when your breast lift only involves pulling up of the skin, stretch marks will remain – although they may fade out a little.
Myth #2: Breast lift can replace your need to exercise.
Although keeping muscles toned helps us maintain our body contour, doing so cannot actually tighten the skin around one’s breasts. Only a qualified surgeon can tighten the skin around this area to make it more taut and attractive. Then again, it is still important to exercise right after any surgical procedure since exercise promotes normal blood flow to the treatment area.
Myth #3: Breast lift can leave big scars.
Many women often stay away from the idea of a breast lift since they believe that the procedure can leave behind long scars. However, a breast lift is actually less aggressive than other cosmetic surgeries, leaving very minimal scarring. The surgeon will make a single incision, so only one scar will be made. The scar will go all around the nipple-areola of the breast – which is typically called the Lollipop lift.
