Various Evidence Based Options
Intima Breast Lift – A blend of lasers that not only tightens skin around the breast, but also strengthens the deeper ligaments that could be overstretched post-breast feeding, or after large fluctuations in weight.
Radiofrequency Devices – Radiofrequency energy is applied to stimulate elastin and collagen production, that in turn tighten breast skin. Results are more gradual and often limited to the skin layer. When a higher energy is delivered, tightening of underlying sagging tissue can be achieved. However, results are dependent on each individual’s skin electrical conductivity, and fat loss and atrophy can possibly occur under imprecise and uncontrolled heating, not to mention a higher risk of side effects such as skin burns.
Surgical Mastopexy – An operation where excess breast skin is removed and the nipple and areola are repositioned to give tighter and fuller breasts. Results are more dramatic, but recovery time and a risk of incision scarring are increased in surgical procedures.
