Who Benefits from a Breast Lift?

Posted on: January 16, 2018

For anyone who is considering a breast lift, there are multiple options and factors that the individual needs to know about. We can help you determine what you want to change about your body and the most effective way to go about it. The first step is to schedule an appointment and talk to us about your desires.

Breast lift versus breast augmentation

Many women visit our office asking for a breast augmentation when what they actually need is a lift. These are two very different and distinct procedures. With an augmentation, we enhance the breast size for enlargement by inserting silicone implants under the breast tissue. With a breast lift, we do not add anything to enhance the shape of the breasts. This is a patient’s own breast tissue that we lift and shape. While both can create attractive breasts, it is important to select the right procedure for a patient’s individual needs.

Who benefits from a breast lift?

Typically, a person who will most benefit from a lift is someone who has breasts that are already large. For example, most patients with less than a C cup are not interested in having a lift because their breast tissue may not be as large as they would like it to be. However, anyone who prefers the overall size of their breasts but wants them to be perkier, more round or to remain up without wearing a bra, can benefit from this procedure. We frequently perform this procedure on women who:
  • Have had multiple children
  • Feel that their breasts started sagging due to breastfeeding
  • Have lost weight but still have sagging breasts
  • Feel that their breasts started sagging as they got older
While these factors are typically associated with older women, some younger women also visit us for this procedure. Few people realize that it is possible for people in their 20s to have overly large and sagging breasts.

The results

Fortunately, the results of a breast lift procedure can be quite attractive. Most of our patients are incredibly pleased with how they look after the procedure and feeling that it has reshaped their overall appearance and made it possible for them to look more fit and have the right type of curves. By lifting the breast tissue and shaping it, we can create beautiful round breasts that remain perky and in an upright position. This way, women can choose the style and size of breasts they want. This alone can improve the confidence of our patients by making it possible to look good naked and in clothes. Imagine the number of summer dresses that must be worn without a bra – now those dresses are within reach. Though it may sound like a small victory, for many of our patients this is one of their main reasons for wanting the procedure and once complete, they are very satisfied.
