Reasons to Consider a Breast Lift
A breast lift procedure may be appropriate for patients who do not wish to create a significant difference in the size of their breasts, but would like an uplifted, youthful profile.
- Changes in weight
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
For women who desire a change in the breast size as well as the shape, or who wish to add fullness at the top of the breast, an augmentation procedure should be considered along with the breast lift. For women with larger breasts, a reduction is also a possibility in conjunction with a lift. The procedure can be customized to suit the needs and goals of the patient.
Am I A Candidate?
As with any surgery, it’s important to consider your overall health before deciding to move forward with the procedure. If you are maintaining a healthy weight and are otherwise physically healthy, and do not smoke, you may be a good candidate for this surgery.
A breast lift procedure can correct flat, elongated breasts, downward-pointing nipples, stretched skin or enlarged areolas, and unevenness. The lift procedure can return a higher, more youthful profile.
What is Recovery Like?
As with any surgery, you can expect that there will be some recovery time. When the procedure is complete, a thin tube may be inserted under the skin to drain away any excess blood or fluid. The incision will be covered with sterile dressing, and you will need to wear an elastic bandage or specially made soft support bra to minimize any swelling and support the breasts as they heal. You will be prescribed pain medication and given specific instructions for after-care. Plan to get plenty of rest and to stay hydrated after the surgery.
After your breast lift procedure, you will find that the final results will continue to develop over several months. The incision scars, while permanent, will fade. Going forward, maintaining a healthy weight and regular exercise will help the results last.
