The 3 Considerations You Should Make Before Undergoing a Breast Lift

Breast Lift in DCWhen it comes to the breasts, there are seemingly endless procedures that can be done to improve their appearance. Whether it’s an augmentation, a lift, or reduction there are several ways that women choose to enhance their breasts when exercise, diet, and clever bra hacks have failed to give them the appearance they desire. If you’re interested in a breast lift and/or augmentation or reduction there are a few considerations you should make.

The 3 considerations you need to make for your breast lift in DC

  1. Your desired look– It’s important to know what you want your end result to be. You may simply want your breasts to have a bit of a boost but also consider if you want to enlarge them or make them smaller in the process. This will help us decide what procedure or procedures will give you your desired result.
  2. Your lifestyle and future plans– A breast lift is a great way to give you a perkier chest that can end up making you look more youthful but consider your plans for the future before undergoing a procedure. For example, if you’re planning on having children in the future, pregnancy can drastically alter the appearance of your breasts. We typically recommend that patients do not plan to become pregnant following their procedure due to the changes in their bodies. This is something you can discuss with your doctor during your consultation.
  3. The benefits– Consider if the benefits line up with your overall goals. Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure, we want our patients to fully understand what the procedure involves before they commit to anything. We want to ensure it’s the right procedure for you before we get started so you’ll be completely satisfied with your results.
