Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?February 19, 2015
Over time, your breasts will undergo certain changes. This is typically caused by a variety of factors including gravity, the aging process, fluctuations in weight, and pregnancy. Often, these changes can result in sagging and stretching of your breasts. Fortunately, there are several breast surgery options to restore a more youthful breast appearance.
The breast lift is the most common procedure performed to help you achieve perkier, more youthful looking breasts. This procedure will lift your breasts and reposition the nipple to help you achieve your desired look.
Ideal breast lift candidates are in good general health, would like to correct sagging issues, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Both women with large and small breasts can achieve excellent breast lift results; however, women with smaller breasts may experience longer lasting results.
If you’re planning on getting pregnant in the future, you may want to consider postponing your procedure until you’re done having children since future pregnancies and breastfeeding can negatively impact your results. During your consultation, you should discuss any pregnancy plans with Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown.
In some instance, Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown may also recommend breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift for enhanced results.
