As we age, our breasts begin to sag and we reminisce about the contour we had in our youth. We’d like you to know that you can regain your youthful appearance with a breast lift.
Understanding the Breast Lift
A breast lift is fairly straightforward. This breast enhancement procedure restores the appearance of breasts once they have changed in projection, loft, shape or size. Even women who don’t breastfeed often find that the size and shape of their breasts change after childbirth.
Hormonal changes caused by menopause and significant shifts in weight also affect the firmness and perkiness of the breasts. This procedure enhances aesthetics by lifting the breast tissue and removing excess skin.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?
If you are dissatisfied with drooping breasts, you are most likely a good candidate for a breast lift. If your sagging breasts are caused by hormonal changes from pregnancy and nursing, a breast lift could be the procedure for you. Similarly, if you suffer from drooping breasts caused by aging, the procedure can help.
During your initial consultation, ask if a breast lift is right for you if the changes in your breasts are caused by significant weight fluctuations. The ideal candidate doesn’t have too much skin laxity. In other words, their skin will tighten after the procedure. In general, you’re a good candidate if you are in good general health, you don’t smoke and you have realistic expectations about the results.
The Breast Lift Procedure
During your initial consultation, ask our cosmetic surgeon which technique will be used to achieve your desired results. There are different techniques, and each is ideal to achieve a different goal. Breast lifts are often performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as breast augmentation with implants. However, the exact details vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
