At Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery, we know that your body has the ability to do amazing things. Whether it is growing and changing during pregnancy, nurturing a child through breastfeeding, or going through the natural aging process, there can be a lot of changes to your breasts. While this change is normal and you should be proud of everything your body has accomplished, there may be times when you wish you could restore the lift and shape of your breasts.
Traditional breast lift procedures can often cause scarring around the areola and other breast tissue. If you want a less invasive treatment that won’t leave scarring, you can consider Thermibreast. Thermibreast is a non-surgical breast lift treatment that uses radiofrequency energy intending to tighten loose breast tissue and create lift.
What Makes Thermibreast Different?
Every situation is different, and while some women may want to achieve more dramatic results with breast augmentation or breast lift surgery, this may not be the option you’re looking for. Thermibreast is different because there are no incisions that have to heal and no implants that go in your body. Using ThermiRF technology, a small probe the size of a needle that might be used to draw blood is inserted into the skin around the areola. It delivers radiofrequency energy to heat the subdermal breast tissue.
The effect of the treatment can be twofold. First, the radiofrequency energy can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the breasts, the effects of which can continue increasing several months after the treatment. Second, the process tightens the fibers in the breasts which can result in a lifting effect. Unlike other procedures, you may not see noticeable results on the day of the treatment, but over the next few months, you should start to notice tightening and lifting. These results can last for a few years after the treatment.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Thermibreast?
Little to No Downtime
With surgery, you will have a wound that will need to heal. It can take 3 weeks or more for your body to start feeling like normal again. Thermibreast treatments will allow you to get back to your day right away. You won’t have any incisions that need to heal and you’ll be able to continue doing normal activities. You may feel some soreness, but most people find they can easily get back to their routine.
Subtle, Natural Lift
Some women come to us wanting to treat breasts but don’t want a dramatic change. Thermibreast can offer a subtle and natural result that can make your breasts look and feel more youthful without augmentation.
While a good surgeon will work to minimize scarring during a breast lift procedure, these surgeries will still come with incisions that heal into scars over time. With Thermibreast, the needles used are too small to cause any scarring.
Are You a Good Candidate for Thermibreast?
Like other treatments, you’ll want to spend some time talking to us to see if Thermibreast is a good option for you. This treatment can be useful in the following cases:
- You are already happy with the size of your breasts: Thermibreast will not increase the size of your breasts. Instead, the goal is to create more lift and elasticity.
- You have small to medium breasts: The best candidates for this treatment are women with small to medium-sized breasts. A consultation can help you determine the best treatments for you.
- You have mild to moderate ptosis: The women who often experience the best results from Thermibreast have mild to moderate ptosis, or sagging of the breasts.
- You do not have prior implants: Patients who already have breast implants are not good candidates for this treatment.
- You do not have a history of breast cancer or breast radiation: Women who have had breast cancer, are pregnant, or have had breast radiation in the past should not have Thermibreast treatments.
What Can You Expect From a Thermibreast Treatment?
Before your appointment, you’ll spend time with us going over your goals for the treatment so that we can make a plan that is targeted toward what you want to achieve. Some patients need both breasts to receive the same treatment, while others elect to treat one breast to make the shape and lift between the two breasts more even.
Before the treatment, we will use a local anesthetic for your breasts so that you can be completely comfortable throughout the entire process. Once the anesthetic takes effect, a probe is inserted into different locations around the areola. The breast tissue will be heated to a specifically targeted temperature which we will monitor continually with infrared technology.
After your treatment, you’ll be able to go back to work, take care of your kids, and get back to your normal routine. You may experience some soreness for a couple of days afterward which most people describe as being similar to the muscle soreness of lifting weights at the gym. You may also experience some swelling and bruising which should last no longer than a week.
