A breast lift, sometimes referred to as a mastopexy, gives women a way to get a more youthful look for their breasts. Because of the amount of soft tissue in the breasts, these areas can often droop and sag because of the usual aging process. Plus, other problems, such as hormonal changes, can create issues with the breasts. If you are considering a breast lift, there are various things to consider before deciding that this procedure is right for you.
Do You Need a Breast Lift Only?
A breast lift is designed to lift up the breast tissue that you already have. It will not add tissue or increase volume as many women falsely believe. Therefore, if you are also unhappy with the size of breasts along with their shape and location, you may want to ask about a breast lift along with breast augmentation, which can correct both of these problems.
Are You Done Having Children?
Although a breast lift will not keep you from becoming pregnant and will not even stop you from lactating in many cases, we typically recommend that you wait until you are done with pregnancy and lactation before undergoing this procedure, as future pregnancies and breastfeeding could make your breasts sag and droop once again.
A Surgical Procedure
Your breast lift will be done as an outpatient surgery in the comfort of a state-of-the-art surgical suite. Because it is a surgical procedure, it does come with risks and side effects of which you should be aware, as well as a recovery period. This means that you will need to limit many of your activities significantly for a set amount of time as you heal.
Although a breast lift can help many women who have experienced sagging breasts from age or hormone-related changes, it may not be for everyone.
