How Can a Breast Lift Benefit Me?

Breasts are a significant part of a woman’s physical identity, and most women wish they could somehow improve on what they have—especially when factors like age or childbirth have changed how the breasts look.

It can be difficult to tighten and elevate your breasts using diet or exercise, and skin laxity can rarely be fixed using home methods. Fortunately, a breast lift may be able to help. 

What Can a Breast Lift Do? 

Breast lift surgery uses carefully placed incisions to tighten sagging tissues and remove excess skin from the breasts. The techniques used during breast lift surgery are customized to fit individual needs, as the extent of correction needed varies significantly between patients. 

A breast lift surgery helps women improve their breast aesthetic by: 

  • Restoring perkiness 
  • Removing sagging skin 
  • Repositioning or resizing the areolas
  • Improving shape and symmetry
  • Increasing firmness

Breast lift surgery is commonly combined with additional breast enhancement surgeries like breast augmentation surgery, which adds volume to the breasts, and breast reduction surgery, which reduces the size of the breasts. Both of these plastic surgeries are ideal for changing the size of the breasts, but they cannot significantly improve breast shape or correct sagging. 

Combining procedures is a great way to change breast size and ensure that you get the breast contour and projection you want. 

Why Should I Get a Breast Lift? 

Tissue laxity is the primary reason for a woman to pursue breast lift surgery. A breast lift offers the most effective means for correcting sagging or deflated breasts caused by breastfeeding or natural age. 

A breast lift might be a good fit for you if you are focused more on improving the shape of your breasts or restoring them to a more youthful contour than increasing their size. A breast lift cannot add the volume that breast augmentation can, but it can give the impression of moderate fullness since it rearranges, compacts, and lifts the tissue.

If you are looking for a way to get a natural-looking youthful bust, a breast lift could be great for you. The best way to find out if this surgery is right for you is to consult with your surgeon.
