Are you delving into the idea of plastic surgery for the first time and thinking of breast lift surgery? 

Maybe the post-effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding have robbed your breasts of their once youthful perkiness. Or, maybe the natural aging process and gravity have had an adverse effect on your breasts.

If you are displeased by your sagging bustline, breast lift surgery effectively removes excess skin and tightens the breast tissues for a youthful, more contoured chest appearance.

What Can a Breast Lift Do?

Many women are embracing this procedure and using it to redefine their feminine figures. It’s quite understandable, considering breasts play a notable role in the way a woman looks.

When your breasts start to droop or change in shape, no amount of exercise can restore them to their original position. A surgical breast lift is necessary to remove the excess skin, raise the breasts, and reshape them to be rounder.

Further, a breast lift addresses enlarged or asymmetrical areolas and downward-pointing nipples. 

The procedure is ideal for patients looking to preserve the volume of their breasts while improving the breasts’ shape, projection, symmetry, or firmness.

What Can’t a Breast Lift Do?

That said, it is worth noting that breast lift surgery won’t significantly change your breast size or add volume to the upper part of your breast. 

If you are concerned about the loss of volume and want to enhance the size of your breasts, you will need implants. It is common to see patients get a combination of breast augmentation and lift to achieve larger, fuller, and perkier breasts.

Which Other Combination Procedures Can Be Included to Enhance My Breasts?

Besides breast augmentation, breast reduction is another possible procedure that can be performed along with a lift, particularly for patients who wish to reduce their breast size significantly.

Additionally, a breast lift can be combined with breast revision surgery to achieve more natural, youthful-looking breasts.

Combining your breast lift surgery with any of these additional procedures is a safe and effective way of getting the most out of your surgery.

How to Decide Which Procedure Is Right for Me?

The best way to determine the most appropriate procedure for you is to schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced surgeon like Dr. Ghere. During your consultation, she will evaluate your body type, unique concerns, discuss your aesthetic goals, and recommend a custom treatment plan that will bring the results you are looking for.
