You probably take great care of the skin on your face and neck, using quality moisturizers and applying sunscreen regularly. But do you spend the same amount of time caring for the skin on the upper portion of your chest?
This part of your body is often exposed to the sun, yet most women rarely apply sunscreen here unless they are spending a day at the beach or by the pool. That leaves the skin vulnerable to sun damage.
As you age, you also lose much of the collagen and elastin in your skin, which gives the soft, smooth appearance associated with youth and vitality. That can leave the skin on your chest with little support, and allows it to pool into lines and wrinkles.
Until recently, there was little that could be done to address wrinkles above the breasts. Dr. Brennan decided to tackle this problem, and developed a revolutionary new surgical procedure to lift and tighten skin on the upper portion of the chest.
The procedure is called upper chest rejuvenation, and works by lifting and tightening the skin that extends from above your breasts to your neck. The small incisions used for the procedure are placed in the area where your bra strap sits, and there is no significant scarring.
Upper chest rejuvenation is a great treatment option for women who are unhappy with the appearance of their skin in this area, and who are ready to take steps to restore a smoother, more youthful upper chest. Many have already undergone a facelift and necklift, and want the skin on their chest to match their renewed facial and neck appearance.
Recovery time is brief, as an upper chest rejuvenation mainly addresses sagging skin and not the underlying structures. You should be back to your normal routines within a couple of weeks. Dr. Brennan explains your post-operative instructions and any activity limitations prior to your procedure.
You can expect your results to last as long as 15 years. The aging process continues, but you can help protect your upper chest from accelerated aging by using sun protection and good quality skin care products.
