With the passage of time, breasts can start to sag. Weight loss, pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can also take their toll on the breasts, leaving the skin stretched and loose. Many women say they would love to rejuvenate their breasts — to have them look and feel firmer and higher again. But do you have to resort to major surgery to accomplish that?
If you do not want to physically enlarge your breasts, just give them a boost, our Eterna Breast Lift could be exactly the alternative you’re looking for.
What is the Eterna Breast Lift?
Dr. Hernandez offers this non-surgical alternative that can produce significant improvement without the negatives associated with invasive surgery. For the Eterna Breast Lift, she performs a BodyTite procedure on the breasts, primarily to firm the skin. Patients love this option because it offers:
- Shorter procedure time
- Less recovery time
- Less pain and discomfort
- Surgical-like results
BodyTite is a safe, precise technology that takes advantage of radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to tighten skin. When used on the breasts, skin tightening helps the breasts regain their firmer shape and feel. Eterna Cosmetic Surgery was the first practice in San Antonio to offer BodyTite treatments, so you can be confident that Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez is experienced and skilled in using this technology to achieve optimal, personalized results.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
Because breasts can start to lose their firmness at any age, even young women in their 20s who have loose skin after weight loss or pregnancy can benefit from a BodyTite treatment on the breasts. Our patients are typically in their 20s to 50s.
That said, the best candidates for the Eterna Breast Lift:
- Have breasts that are a C or smaller cup size
- Have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or lower
- Have skin that still retains its elasticity (if skin is too thin or too loose, results will be disappointing)
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, you will have to wait to schedule your Eterna Breast Lift.
What happens during an Eterna Breast Lift?
The Eterna Breast Lift is an outpatient procedure, so you can arrive and go home the same day. Dr. Hernandez uses local anesthesia , a choice she will discuss with you prior to your treatment.
During the procedure, a very thin layer of fat just below the skin’s surface is melted, and that helps give a smooth look as the skin contracts. However, BodyTite will not cause a significant change in the size of the breasts.
The Eterna Breast Lift usually takes from 1 to 3 hours, depending on breast size. Rarely do patients require more than one treatment to achieve their desired results.
What happens after an Eterna Breast Lift?
The Eterna Breast Lift not only produces impressive results, the procedure takes much less time than traditional breast lift surgery and there is considerably less downtime required.
You should set aside two days for recovery – that is, the day of your treatment and the day after. You will continue to wear a tight sports bra for three months. The compression provided by the sports bra helps reduce swelling and speeds recovery by supporting the breasts as they heal. Unlike surgical breast lift procedures, the Eterna Breast Lift leaves no scars because there are no large incisions.
Breast Lift Results
The Eterna Breast Lift delivers permanent results. You should notice improvement right away and see significant improvement after about three months. Your breasts will look higher and tighter – more youthful – without loose or wrinkly skin. Even better, the skin can continue to firm for up to one year after the treatment, because BodyTite boosts cellular metabolism and stimulates new production of collagen.
Are your breasts ready for a firming lift?
Then it’s time to make an appointment with Dr. Hernandez for a private consultation. During this time, you can discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals, and together you can decide if the Eterna Breast Lift is right for you.
