There are a few things that ring true of middle age for women and one that is a harsh reminder is the realization that our figures have shifted from youthful and sensual to a look more reminiscent of our mothers…aka matronly breasts. Although there is nothing wrong with aging and we all have the expectation that our bodies will evolve, sometimes the idea of a pick- me- up, in the way of a breast reduction or breast lift, is very appealing. For one reason, as our breasts become heavy and sit lower, we lose the definition between our chest and waist. For lack of a better word, we become squared off and lose our feminine curves.
A breast reduction is a way to both remove excess breast tissue, tighten up the skin as well as position the breast higher on the chest wall to recreate the breast shape and perkiness. This 5’6”, 133 lb slim Mom of 2 has a hectic job and was tired of buying heavy duty bras to hike up her breasts. Plus, she is highly physically active and trying to work out with any comfort was next to impossible. She met Dr. Mahony at a gym they both attend and got to talking about breast reduction surgery, Vampire Facial with PRP and Menopause Makeover procedures. Her consultation was fun because they had common interests, and both shared an interest in being the best they could be in middle age!
Not long after, our Mom worked out the procedures she wished to schedule: lipo, breast reduction, facelift and Vampire facials. Although early on in her healing, she is now a shapely C cup and could pass for 40 any day of the week!
