Women who have sagging breasts due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, or natural aging are generally good candidates for a breast lift. It is important to have realistic expectations and be in good overall health.
A breast lift primarily focuses on reshaping and lifting the breasts rather than altering their size. However, in some cases, a breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation or reduction to achieve the desired size and shape.
Breast implants and a breast lift are different procedures, even if they’re concerned with the same body part. While breast implants add volume and size, a breast lift elevates the breast and removes excess skin tissues to make them appear firm and taut.
While a breast lift does not typically impact the milk ducts or nipple sensitivity, there is a slight possibility that breastfeeding may be affected. It is best to discuss your plans for breastfeeding with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure.
The results of a breast lift are long-lasting, but factors such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and natural aging can affect the shape and appearance of the breasts over time. Maintaining a stable weight and following a healthy lifestyle can help prolong the results.
