Can Perkier Breasts Make You Look Younger?

Breast Augmentation Salt Lake City, UTWhen you typically think about anti-aging procedures you think of cosmetic surgeries like facelifts and neck lifts, mixed with a couple of syringes of Botox and fillers. However, as procedures that are almost never identified as anti-aging, breast lifts and augmentations are great ways to make you look more youthful. And although we aren’t making any claims that these procedures should have their name changed to anti-aging procedures, they sure do have some similar benefits. Let’s take a closer look at how.

Sagging Skin

Sagging skin is a natural part of the aging process. As you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin which are the two main supportive tissues that are keeping the skin all across your body looking more soft and plump. And although the skin on your face is one of the first places you will notice a loss of elasticity in your skin, your breast will also show it— which will make them hang a little lower and not look as supple.

Additionally, patients who have either lost a lot of weight or who breastfed usually suffer from a loss of elasticity in their skin. Luckily, with a breast lift in conjunction with a breast augmentation, Dr. York Yates can give you more youthful looking breasts.

Loss of Tissue

As you age, your body stops producing as much estrogen which results in not only a loss of elasticity in the skin around your breasts but it also causes many women to lose some of their breast mass which leaves them with smaller looking breasts. To help combat this problem, Dr. York Yates can perform a variety of different breast procedures including a breast augmentation.

As you can see, aging not only affects the skin on your face and neck but it can affect your breasts as well. If you would like to learn more about our breast procedures, schedule your consultation at our Layton office today!
