One of the most insidious aspects of aging is that it shows up most in those areas that are on display to the world, such as your face, neck, and chest. If the skin on your upper chest is belying your best anti-aging efforts, we have the perfect solution — upper chest renovation.
The team here at Dr. Brennan’s Cosmetic Center, led by cosmetic expert Dr. George Brennan, endeavors to meet all of your cosmetic goals using the latest techniques available. Although there may not be a way to stop the aging process, we offer a wide range of techniques to reverse its effects, allowing you to maintain your youthful and vibrant appearance. One of our most effective services in this regard is our upper chest renovation, which smooths out the skin on your chest, preventing it from giving away your age.
The passage of time on your chest
When it comes to aging, you’re up against several powerful forces. First, years of exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays weaken your skin cells and breaks down your collagen fibers. Not to mention, the sun is also responsible for the increasingly mottled appearance of your skin in the form of sunspots.
Next, after the age of 20, your body produces 1% less collagen each year, which is the protein responsible for the structural support in your skin. Though this loss is gradual, it can add up, leaving your skin to wrinkle and sag.
These aging forces are most noticeable in areas where your skin is exposed, such as your chest. In addition, the skin in this area is thin and delicate, which means it stands little chance against exposure and collagen loss.
Renovating your chest
It’s no secret that a facelift is one of the most effective ways to combat aging as we’re able to tighten your skin to achieve a more youthful appearance. But did you know that we can accomplish the same thing on your upper chest?
Dr. Brennan was among the first cosmetic surgeons to offer this procedure, which lifts and tightens the skin above your breasts to your neck. Using only small incisions, which we place in inconspicuous areas, such as where your bra sits, we lift your skin and remove the excess tissue.
We perform an upper chest renovation on an outpatient basis, which means you’re free to return home on the same day. Recovery from your upper chest renovation should only take a few weeks as the small incisions heal and your skin resettles itself in a more taut position.
Rest assured, we supply you with complete aftercare instructions, including cleaning the incision sites and when you can return to more strenuous activities.
