Breast Lift

Breast Lift

A breast lift surgery is used to condense extra skin and tighten the adjacent tissue to reform and upkeep the breast silhouette. Breast lift, also called mastopexy, can also be used to reduce enlarged areola besides revitalizes your physical outlook with a breast shape that is more uplifted, youthful and attractive.

Why breast lift?

You might be thinking why should one go for breast lift. As a matter of fact, a woman’s breasts keep changing with age, at times losing their firm shape. This is when breast lift becomes a necessity. A woman’s breasts may become loose for several reasons including the following:

  • Aging
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Genetic factors
  • Gravity

Breast lift candidate

Even though several factors play role in making you an ideal candidate for breast lift, yet you can be a good candidate for breast lift if you:

  • Have good health and stable weight
  • Are not a smoker
  • Are concerned about your breasts sagging or loosing shape and volume
  • Are worried that when not supported, your nipples tumble down the breast crease
  • Are bothered because your nipples and areolas are pointing downward
  • Have elongated skin and large areolas
  • Are concerned that one of your breasts is lower than the other

What not to expect from breast lift?

You should keep in mind that breast lift does not alter the size of your breasts or changes the shape of the upper part of your breasts.  These can be achieved through breast augmentation. And if you intend to reduce the size of your breasts, it can be best achieved with the combine use of breast lift and breast reducing surgery.
