The days of getting surgery to have a breast lift may be reduced for those who want to non-surgically lift their breasts without any surgery or downtime. Fotona is one of the largest manufacturers of aesthetic lasers in Europe and North America. Non-invasive solutions have become an exceptional choice for many people who wish to rejuvenate the skin on their face and body without the unpleasant downtime associated with surgical procedures.
Laser breast lifting is one the newest procedures available at Dr. Torgerson’s Cosmetic Laser Clinic. The technology involves the use of Nd:YAG and erbium YAG to non-invasively lift and tighten the skin around the breast tissue in about an hour. *Treatments are effective and safe in reducing sagginess in the breast and the surrounding tissue.*
Laser breast lifting involves a two-step process that induces the superficial tightening and deep tightening of the breast tissue. Below we discuss frequently asked questions that patients may have in regards to non-invasive breast-lifting procedures.
Laser breastlifting works by emitting laser light into the breast tissues to induce thermal heating within the breast tissue. Two treatments are conducted: the first is for superficial tightening, and the second is for deep tightening. The erbium YAG laser is used in the first step for gentle skin tightening, while the second step involves the Nd:YAG to heat deep tissue, which helps shrink the skin. The shrinking and tightening of the skin lifts the skin on the breast. The use of dual-laser technology increases the production of collagen and elastin fibres, which help restore and rejuvenate the dermal structures of the treatment areas. Laser breast lifting is a safe, non invasive way to immediately achieve satisfying results.
After the initial non-surgical breastlift, the lifting and tightening of the breast are visible immediately. A minimum of 3 treatments are required, with treatment intervals every 3 weeks to produce desirable results. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6 months to sustain the skin-tightening effects in the breasts.
Laser breast-lifting treatments are non-invasive and well tolerated by most patients. Some patients may experience heating in the tissue, which might cause some mild discomfort. Anaesthetic cream can be applied 40 minutes before the procedure to help patients with their treatment experience. Your laser operator can best determine pain remedies for your treatment.
Patients can experience some redness and mild swelling immediately after their laser breast lift procedure and should expect the breast tissue to be tender for the next few days after the treatment. The treatment area can feel tight and dry immediately after treatments. Consistent use of moisturizer is recommended to help alleviate any dry skin symptoms after laser breast-lifting procedures. Patients should avoid direct sunlight to the newly treated skin on the bust.
Laser breast-lift procedures are ideal for women who are experiencing skin laxity due to aging, weight gain, or breastfeeding. Treatments are non-invasive and require no downtime. Laser breastlift treatments can be used as a preventative method for women who wish to restore lost volume and tightness in the breast and surrounding areas. Laser breast lift technology can be applied on the décolleté area as well to lift the breast from the upper chest area. Clear communication with your plastic surgeon is the first step in determining whether you are a suitable candidate for laser breast lift procedures. Patients who are interested in this procedure should have realistic expectations and should not expect dramatically enhanced breasts, but rather a subtle lifting of the skin that gently causes skin tightening and skin lifting of the breast tissues.
