As a trusted Miami plastic surgeon, Dr. Ary Krau encounters many women that are unhappy with the size or position of their breasts. While meeting with these women, he has heard all kinds of inquiries. A question that has come up more than once is whether there is a topical cream available that can effectively lift the breasts. Dr. Krau thought he would spend some time addressing this question in a blog post.
No Cream Can Lift the Breasts
Unfortunately, no cream or lotion has been clinically proven or FDA-approved to lift the breasts into a higher position. Don’t waste your money on any product that claims to improve your breast position.
While genetics play a big role in breast sagging, there are a few things you can do to prevent it in the first place. Try not to fluctuate greatly in body weight; gaining and losing a lot of weight in a short period of time can take its toll on the breasts. Be diligent about wearing sunscreen on your chest and décolletage area to protect the skin from the sun’s rays. Wear a supportive bra as much as possible, especially when performing high-intensity aerobic exercise.
The Best Option to Lift Sagging Breasts
The most effective way to treat breast sagging is through breast lift surgery. A talented breast lift surgeon can relocate the breasts higher on the chest. Depending on the needs and goals of the patient, the surgeon can also place breast implants to enhance the size of small breasts.
During breast lift, excess breast skin is removed and the breast tissue is reshaped to create the breast mound higher on the chest wall. The remaining skin is wrapped tightly around the new breast mound. The nipple-areolar complex can also be relocated higher on the breast mound, if necessary, and downward-pointing nipples can be corrected.
Modern surgical techniques leave minimal scarring that usually fades very nicely.
