How a Breast Lift Can Improve Your Confidence

Breast liftWhile many elderly women can experience drooping or sagging breasts, it is not a problem that just elderly women face, as younger women can also experience this issue. Whether it was an issue that occurred after nursing children or an issue that developed over time, a breast lift procedure can help correct these issues. Read more to see how a breast lift can improve your confidence and everything else you need to know.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as a Mastopexy, is the process in which the breasts are lifted to improve their appearance. Many different factors contribute to breasts changing in appearance such as age, gravity, breastfeeding, and weight loss. This procedure can help boost the appearance of your breasts.

How Long Do the Results Last?

While the longevity of results does vary from person to person, you can expect results to last for longer than 10 years. Individuals who drink regularly, smoke, have skin that is sun damaged, and do not have the greatest skin elasticity, can expect to need a follow-up procedure in under 10 years. The longevity of results can also depend on the type of procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate?

A good candidate is anyone who wants to enhance the appearance of their breasts, especially individuals with sagging and drooping breasts. Good candidates also include:

  • Those who do not smoke
  • Those who like the shape of their breasts and are not looking to add volume
  • Those who do not plan on having any more children

A majority of patients who opt for this procedure are between the ages of 40 and 69 and are looking to get their pre-children look again. A consultation with our surgeon can help provide more detail and information on whether or not this procedure is right for you.

Potential Side Effects

There are a few side effects to be aware of, such as potential minimal scarring, decreased nipple sensitivity, and a possible reduced chance of a woman’s ability to breastfeed. It is important to know these possible side effects before scheduling a breast lift procedure.
