Many different things can cause the breasts to sag over time. This is why breast lift surgeries have exploded in popularity recently. This procedure is a great way to reclaim a youthful-looking figure and achieve the curves you would like.
What is a Breast Lift?
More technically known as a mastopexy, the breast lift procedure typically involves removing excess skin from the area. It also can reshape the surrounding tissue in a way that is better suited to support a youthful breast shape and contour. Another thing that can be accomplished with a breast lift is reducing the size of the areola, which sometimes gets bigger over time. It is important to note that a breast lift is not designed to change the size of the breasts. If this is your goal, breast augmentation or breast reduction may be discussed.
Breast sagging can be caused by many different factors. Common culprits include genetics, pregnancy, breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight, and simply aging. No matter what the cause is, a breast lift can help.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
A personalized consultation will ensure that this is the right option for you. There are several different mental and physical characteristics that make a woman a good candidate for this procedure. Some of them include:
- Your weight is stable
- You are in good overall health
- You are not a smoker
- You are upset by your breasts sagging
- Your nipples point down
- Without a bra, your nipples are lower than your breast crease
- One breast sags lower than the other
