What is a Breast Lift?

When you hear about procedures that are designed to improve the appearance of your breasts, the first thing that comes to mind is breast augmentation with breast implants. However, a breast lift is another popular procedure that could give you the results that you have always wanted. A breast lift is a cosmetic procedure that is tailored for women with sagging breasts that hang down and no longer look perky. This is a common problem for many women.

A woman’s breasts go through many changes during her lifetime. Pregnancy and breastfeeding often make the breasts begin to droop. Gaining and losing weight can also take a toll on a woman’s breasts. Even the aging process can make them lose their firmness and cause the breasts to slide down further and further. A breast lift can correct the problem.

What Happens During a Breast Lift?

During a typical procedure, our plastic surgeon removes any excess skin. The breast tissue will be sculpted to retain its shape once again. The areolas and nipples will also be raised to a higher position. The end result will be perkier, more youthful breasts that hold their position even when you aren’t wearing a bra.

Are You a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

If you are bothered by the way that your breasts sag and you want to give them a lift, a breast lift could work for you. However, you should wait to have any type of procedure for your breasts until you are done having children. If you intend to lose a considerable amount of weight, it is recommended that you wait to have any type of procedure until you reach your goal weight.

If you want a lift for your breasts and you want to increase your bust size, talk to our plastic surgeon about taking a combined approach to get the best outcome for your breasts.
