Are you interested in perking up sagging breasts but are hesitant to undergo surgery? World Wellness Health Institute in Bala Cynwyd, PA offers a noninvasive treatment that could be just what you’re looking for. The Thermi Breast Lift uses radiofrequency energy to tighten breast tissue, adding strength to slack skin and lifting your nipples. This treatment doesn’t leave any scarring and requires minimal recovery and down time.
Breast-enhancing surgeries are one of the more popular cosmetic treatments in the United States, but not every woman wants to deal with a lengthy recovery period, time away from work, stitches, bandages, and pain medications. Thermi Breast offers a much more convenient, non-surgical alternative that will have you back on your feet and feeling great about your new silhouette in no time.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Thermi Breast?
This treatment is ideal for healthy women of all ages who have small to medium-sized breasts and are experiencing mild to moderate sagging. Many patients who seek out Thermi Breast have recently had children or are experiencing age-related breast sagging. They’re frequently 30 years of age or older, but those who experiencing sagging at an earlier age can still pursue the treatment.
A single Thermi Breast treatment can lift the bosom by as much as an inch or two, and multiple treatments may produce a larger lift. This form of lift will not produce the same results as surgery, especially in patients with generous or heavy busts. But for women who are seeking a relatively quick treatment that results in a tune-up of sorts, a modest tightening and lifting of the bosom, Thermi Breast can be an ideal option.
Thermi Breast is not effective for women with breast implants. Patients who have had breast cancer or radiation of the breast area are also generally not good candidates.
What Is a Thermi Breast Lift?
Thermi Breast is an outpatient treatment that involves the use of local anesthesia or sedation. Four small incisions will be made around the nipple area, and a tiny probe will then be inserted under the skin. The probe delivers gentle heat energy through controlled radiofrequency directly to the breast tissue, stimulating collagen and elastin production in a way that results in tightening and lifting. The treatment also spurs the creation of additional elastin, which leaves the breasts more firm, supple, and younger-looking.
The treatment is easy, and the tiny incisions will heal quickly and completely. Because Thermi Breast is done on an outpatient basis, you’ll go home the same day and will be able to resume normal activities as soon as the next day. Most patients leave our practice excited about their new and revitalized appearance.
How Does Thermi Breast Differ From a Surgical Breast Lift?
Although both treatments aim to lift and firm sagging breasts, Thermi Breast is completely different than a surgical breast lift. Surgical lifts generally involve an incision, the removal of excess skin that may be causing the bosom to drop, and a reshaping of the breast tissue.
During a surgical lift and depending on the patient’s needs, the nipples are often repositioned higher on the bosom as part of the breast-reshaping process. Although surgical lifts are frequently conducted on an outpatient basis, they often involve at least a week of downtime and recovery.
ThermiBreast treatments, on the other hand, are much less invasive and are easier on the body. The micro incisions that are made in the breast during the treatment are small, and the recovery period is short. The treatment takes about an hour, and you can get back to your regular routine the very next day.
How Does a Thermi Breast Lift Compare to Implants?
Lift treatments in general have a different goal than implants and other breast augmentation options. Implants are used to increase the size and volume of the breasts, often by at least one cup size. Lift treatments work instead to tighten and lift the bosom without actually boosting breast size. While surgical lifts more aggressively reshape and reposition the breasts, Thermi Breast Lifts offer a more subtle option for addressing mild drooping and sagging.
How Can I Tell Which Breast Treatment Option Is Best for Me?
We know it can be confusing to navigate all of the information available about different breast treatments. We also understand that because every patient has a different health history, a different physique, and different goals, there’s isn’t always a clear-cut answer about which breast treatment is best.
Our staff understands that any decision about a breast treatment is deeply personal and can feel like a major step for the patient. We are here to help. We can review your health history and goals, help you decide whether Thermi Breast is for you, and walk with you through the treatment process.
What Are the Benefits of Thermi Breast?
Breast surgery can be a big commitment, primarily because of the recovery time and scarring, but also because of the stitches, the bandages, and all of the other little details. Many women are initially attracted to Thermi Breast because it’s a viable and non-surgical option that requires less downtime and is so much easier to deal with. But Thermi Breast offers a number of other benefits as well, including immediate results, a more youthful bosom, and improved self-confidence.
One of the advantages of Thermi Breast treatment is that patients see some subtle results right away. And as collagen production increases in the breasts after the treatment, the results will continue to improve over the next few months. Because Thermi Breast is non-surgical, it can also be repeated as desired, which can further improve your results. The breasts will continue to age and fight gravity even after a Thermi Breast treatment, but most patients say the results of their treatment last for at least three years.
Minimal Down Time and No Scarring
Recovery after a Thermi Breast treatment is straightforward, quick, and easy, especially when compared to the recovery necessary after a surgical lift. Because there are no significant incisions as part of Thermi Breast, there is no need for stitches and there won’t be any scarring. And since Thermi Breast treatments are often done on an outpatient basis, you won’t have to worry about an overnight hospital stay, although it’s a good idea to make arrangements to have someone take you home after the procedure. Most of our patients resume their normal routines the next day.
A More Youthful Bosom
Most Thermi Breast patients are looking to recapture the bosom they had before having children and before gravity and aging began to take its toll. This treatment doesn’t result in a dramatic overhaul of the breasts, but it will tighten and lift them, giving you a more youthful silhouette that you can feel good about.
Aesthetically Pleasing Breasts
Thermi Breast will not increase the size of your breasts, but your bust still may appear slightly larger once the treatment has firmed, tightened, and lifted the area. A breast lift treatment is one of the more straightforward ways of improving the look of your bosom.
Bolstered Self Confidence
Who doesn’t want to feel good about their body? Improved confidence and self-esteem are important benefits to undergoing a Thermi Breast treatment. Most women who have undergone a lift report better body image and improved sexual satisfaction. They also say they feel sexy, more feminine, and more youthful. Even a modest change in your physique can make a major difference in how you feel about yourself.
Can I Do Anything to Prevent My Breasts From Sagging?
It’s normal for a woman’s breasts to change as she progresses through the various stages of life. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, for example, a woman’s breasts often grow larger. As she sheds pregnancy weight, or if she loses a significant amount of weight for some other reason, the breasts may begin to sag.
Breasts also constantly battle gravity and age, and over time they tend to lose their elasticity and start to droop, a condition that’s known medically as ptosis. Genetics, a history of cigarette smoking, and having a larger bra cup size are also factors commonly associated with ptosis.
Aside from adopting some fairly routine healthy habits, there’s not a lot you can do to prevent sagging. Avoiding smoking, for example, is a good idea. Regular exercise and nutritious eating can help you maintain a healthy and consistent weight, which may help you avoid some of the changes in breast shape that take place with extreme weight fluctuations.
