Being pregnant was one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, and you wouldn’t trade it for anything. The baby weight is gone, and you’re pleased with your figure. However, your breasts are drooping after breastfeeding and the enlargement that is par for the course. No amount of exercise or dieting is going to fix this problem. You should consider the benefits of a breast lift after pregnancy to give your breasts a boost.
What is a Breast Lift?
A breast lift should not be confused with breast augmentation. A breast lift is designed to raise your breasts when they have begun to sag, lifting them up to a perkier, more youthful position.
Also referred to as mastopexy, a breast lift procedure will assist you in having firmer breasts with an improved shape as well. It will not change the size of your breasts.
Many women choose to combine breast augmentation and a breast lift for optimal results. If size is not an issue, a breast lift could be the best solution for you.
Are You a Candidate for a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is recommended if you are suffering from drooping breasts after weight loss, pregnancy, or through the aging process.
If you are planning on losing a significant amount of weight or more pregnancies could be in your future, you should wait to have any cosmetic procedure. Your body will be going through more changes.
Once you are at a consistent weight and have no more plans for children, you can move forward with a breast lift.
What to Expect During a Breast Lift Procedure?
You will not need to stay overnight for this outpatient procedure. The surgeon will use intravenous sedation or forms of anesthesia to prepare you for surgery.
During the procedure, incisions will be made in your breasts to remove any excess tissue and skin. The surgeon will contour your breasts and raise them by tightening the tissue. Your nipples will also be raised to a more attractive position.
