For so many women, much more important than breast size is a more beautiful, natural and youthful breast shape. When our breasts begin to lose their youthful appearance, and the shape and fullness begin to disappear due to pregnancy, weight gain and loss, heredity, or advancing age a breast lift might be an option for you. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can boost a woman’s appearance quicker than we can say the word, tightening the surrounding tissue creating a more youthful shape and profile.
Sagging breasts are a concern for many women with the number of breasts lifts having grown 70% since 2000. Breast lift procedures are outpacing breast implants by 2-to-1. From breastfeeding to weight loss, we have all learned that gravity is not our friend. Most women seek assistance with reviving their figure after childbearing and breastfeeding and a breast lift is one procedure they are choosing to recover their prior shape. Although you can get a breast lift at any age after breasts have finished developing, the ideal candidates are near their ideal weight and are finished with childbearing. You can get a breast lift before or after you’re pregnant, but it would probably be best to have the procedure performed when you are through having children.
A breast lift procedure does not significantly change the size or your breasts but is designed to get your nipple back in the right position, but some women choose to have breast implants at the same time as their lift procedure to create a fuller look to their shape. Women seeking smaller breasts may be able to combine a breast lift and breast reduction procedure. Your board certified plastic surgeon will explain your options and whether or not you are a candidate for a breast lift procedure or benefit from another breast procedure.
A breast lift procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning there’s no overnight stay at a hospital. The procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours and is usually performed under anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will make 1-3 incisions, remove the excess skin, and reposition your nipple and areola. Your plastic surgeon will be able to describe details for how the procedure will work best for you. Share with your surgeon how you expect to look and feel, always keeping in mind that the desired result is always about improvement, not perfection.
