8 Reasons to Get a Breast Lift

Breast Lift

Breast Lift SurgeryWomen of all ages may become victims of breast sagging. Pregnancy and nursing can alter the natural form and position of the breasts. Aging causes skin laxity and eventual breast sagging in older women. Hormones, genetics, and weight fluctuations can cause breasts to sag in women of all ages. Below are some reasons to improve the appearance of your breasts by getting a breast lift.

1) Elevate the Breasts

A breast lift can elevate breasts that have begun to sag due to aging and gravity. By removing the excess lax skin, the breasts can be repositioned and elevated to a more aesthetically pleasing position.

2) Enhance Breast Shape

Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and other factors can cause the breasts to flatten or become elongated and pendulous. The breast tissues can be pulled up and together to reshape the breasts into a more natural, nicely rounded breast shape.

3) Restore Your Image

Breast sagging may harm your body image and cause you to feel less confident. Undergoing breast lift surgery can improve the appearance of your breasts so that you look and feel more attractive.

4) Restore Youthful Curves

Whether you desire to bring back your pre-baby curves or you would like to look and feel younger than you are, a breast lift can restore youthful, feminine curves.

5) Reduce the Size of the Areolas

For some women with breast sagging, the areolas also become stretched out and enlarged. Breast lift surgery can reduce the size of the areolas so that they look more natural and balanced in proportion with the surrounding breast tissue.

6) Reposition and Realign the Nipple-Areola Complex

In many cases of breast sagging, the nipples and areolas point downward or to the side. Breast lift surgery can reposition and realign the nipple-areola complexes so that the breasts appear more youthful and balanced.

7) Firm the Breasts

A loss of breast volume after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss may cause the breasts to feel deflated. Removing excess breast tissue and repositioning the remaining tissue can firm the breasts so that they feel more naturally supple and substantial.

8) Achieve Breast Symmetry

If the breasts are asymmetrical, whether one breast sags more than the other, one breast is elongated, or one areola is stretched out, a breast lift can restore symmetry and balance to your figure.
