The Incredible Benefits of a Breast Lift


What are the benefits of a breast lift? This is a common question we receive daily. You might have asked yourself this question too. Breast augmentation procedures, including breast lift procedures, are changing the way women look and feel. A woman's breasts are a defining feature of her beauty, femininity, and appearance. As women pursue the most beautiful versions of themselves, many will look for ways to enhance their breasts and overall appearance.

As a woman ages or experiences significant weight loss, the breasts can begin to sag. This can cause a lot of anxiety and even lead women to be unhappy with their appearance. A breast lift procedure can help address a number of common issues by restoring sagging breasts to their once firm, perky, and harmonized shape. The procedure not only redefines the shape and appearance of a woman's breasts, but it can help restore her youthful, feminine figure that makes her feel attractive, sexy, and confident.

The popularity of this procedure is growing at a rapid pace. The America Society of Plastic Surgeons found that breast lifts have increased 70% since 2000 and are actually outpacing breast implants 2 to 1.

Breast lift procedures are actually quite simple. A plastic surgeon will remove excess, stretched skin, reshape the breast tissue, and raise the nipple and areola so it's in a more forward and natural position. If the patient has large areola, they can also be reduced in size so that they and the breasts are proportional.

Questions to Ask Yourself
It's important to note that the best way to determine whether a breast lift is the right procedure for you is to book a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. He or she will be able to review your body, needs, and goals in detail. Relying on a trusted plastic surgeon who has years of experience performing breast lift procedures will help you select the procedure that is best suited to meet your expectations. However, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to help determine whether this might be a plastic surgery procedure that's a viable option."
  • Do my nipples seem to be pointing downward?
  • Am I happy with my breast size?
  • Have I become unhappy with the appearance of my breasts after pregnancy?
  • Are my breasts asymmetrical or disproportionate to each other?
  • Does my nipple sit below the crease of my breast?
  • Do my breasts feel droopy?
It's important to know that breast lift procedures won't actually increase the size or volume of your breasts. If larger breasts are your goal, meet with a plastic surgeon to see if breast augmentation is right for you.
