You hear about breast implants all the time, but you don’t have a problem with the size of your breasts. You don’t need to be any bigger than you already are. Your problem is the fact that your breasts are hanging down too low. You don’t know exactly when it happened, but your bust looks like it’s heading toward your waistline. A bra can only do so much. You want to give your breasts a boost and bring them back up where they belong. A breast lift could be the right choice for you.
Why Get a Breast Lift?
You are a good candidate for a breast lift if you have noticed that your breasts have shifted from their original position. This is a common problem for women as they get older. The skin loses its elasticity and begins to droop, taking the breasts down with it. If you have gone through fluctuations in weight, you may notice that it has caused your breasts to droop. Pregnancy can take quite a toll on your breasts as well, especially if you have been pregnant more than once. Your breasts swell while you are expecting and during nursing, then seem to shrink when you are done breastfeeding. Go through this even once and it can drag down your breasts. If any of these situations apply to you, a breast lift offers you a solution.
You Should Be in Good Health
The best candidates for this procedure are in good health. If you have a chronic condition or some type of underlying medical issue, you may need to consider other options. A breast lift is a surgical procedure, so it places some demands on your body. Our plastic surgeon can help you to determine if the procedure is safe for you.
What Will Happen During a Breast Lift?
During a breast lift, our surgeon can improve the shape of your breast tissue. Any excess skin or tissue can be removed. Your nipples may be raised as well. You will spend time in the recovery room while you are monitored. You will be sent home with a support bra in order to promote healing. Our team will give you special instructions about caring for yourself after the procedure.
