The breast lift is meant to restore perkier and more youthful breasts once sagging occurs. There are many life factors that can change the position of the breasts and the nipples. By removing the stretched out and excess skin, and reshaping the breast tissue while raising the areola and nipple, the breasts will be in a forward position after breast lift. With so many breast procedures available today, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you and when. Here are some things to consider:
Why women decide to get a breast lift surgery
Women choose the breast lift for restoring the breasts after breastfeeding and pregnancy. Pregnancy comes with many changes which will affect the breasts, leaving them sagging and stretched out. A breast lift can be done with implants or not, and it will help in undoing such changes and to restore the youthful appearance of your breasts.
Improving the breast contour after a dramatic weight loss is another reason for choosing breast lift. After losing weight, the breast volume will also decrease. The breast lift will help to restore the breasts to be more proportional with a youthful breast shape by removing the extra skin.
Some women may have drooping breasts naturally. The breast lift helps these women to enjoy perkier breasts that are higher on the chest.
Signs you could use a breast lift
Your board certified plastic surgeon is the only one that can confirm your candidacy for the breast lift, however, here are a few signs that the procedure could benefit you:
- When the nipple points downward – when the skin at the base of the breast starts to stretch out and sag, then the weight of the breast tissue may pull the nipple downward. The breast lift will position the breasts so that the breast mound and nipple faces forward.
- When the areola or nipple is below the crease of the breast – the surgeon will evaluate the position of the areola or nipple while trying to figure out whether you are the right candidate for a breast lift or not.
