Brow Lift Advantages

As we age, the muscles and skin of the forehead tend to stretch and sag, and may begin to cause a permanent “sour” look to the expression. A brow lift can rejuvenate and revive a normal happy expression, making you look younger, happier, and more comfortable. Sagging brows can even hide the eyes. An eyebrow lift improves your overall ability to accurately convey facial expressions, which are highly dependent on the eyes and brows.

Improve Facial Expression Recognition

Our eyebrows are a subtle part of the expressions most of us make every single day, both unintentionally and purposefully. Prior to a brow lift, a patient with a sagging brow may appear sour, angry, sad, or depressed. A brow lift can restore some elasticity to the upper facial area, making expressions clearer and more open and inviting.

When to Consider a Breast Reduction

When to Consider a Breast Reduction

Society often tells us that large breasts are desirable, sexy, and beautiful. Too much of a good thing, however, can cause discomfort, emotional distress, and limit activities. Breasts that are too large for your frame create back problems, cause shoulder strain, and may limit your ability to move around easily and buy clothes that fit. Breast reduction surgery is a life-changing procedure that frees patients to live their fullest potential.

You’re in Pain

When your breasts are too large for your frame, you may be suffering pain in your back, shoulders, and neck. If your bra straps are causing indentations in your shoulders, and wearing

wider straps and pads doesn’t help you from suffering back, neck, or shoulder pain, it may be time to consider a reduction. Talk to your doctor about the proportions of your body and whether a reduction might relieve some of the pressure on your body structure, resulting in more comfort and ease of movement.

They Interfere with your Mobility

If you can’t bend, lean, or engage in vigorous exercise because your breasts are in the way, it’s more than just an inconvenience. Over-large breasts can present very real obstacles to engaging in an active lifestyle. Simple daily activities like jogging can be painful and even impossible with large breasts. A reduction can provide you with new motivation and ability to move easily.

Clothing Challenges

Sports bras are rarely made for those with breasts above a Size D cup. Not only is it difficult to find fitness gear that fits comfortably, clothes in general may be difficult to find. Fitted styles are nearly impossible to find, since the overall proportion of the body is thrown off. Wrong-sized clothes are not only unattractive, they can be uncomfortable as well, adding to the discomfort related to having large breasts.

Your Size is Affecting your Self Esteem

When you look in the mirror, you should see the most beautiful self looking back. If your breasts make you feel uncomfortable, self-conscious, and embarrassed, a breast reduction surgery may provide you with the more pleasing profile that you’d prefer, boosting your confidence and making you feel better about yourself overall.
