What are some Reasons to Get a Breast Lift?

Some of the most popular reasons to get a breast lift include:

  • Stop drooping of the breasts
  • Restore the shape and position of the breasts after pregnancy
  • Achieve a more attractive silhouette
  • Achieve the appearance of bigger breasts
  • Increase self-confidence and self-esteem

You should not undergo the breast lift procedure if you plan on having more children or if you plan to lose weight. Your breasts will naturally increase in size from the changes in hormones and when you lose body fat, which means you could end up with even more stretched skin. The breast lift procedure is designed to tighten loose skin and can interfere with natural processes such as pregnancy.

How does Breast Lift Surgery Work?

The breast lift procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and involves just one to three small incisions. The surgeon can not only remove excess skin and tissue from the breasts, but also reposition the nipples and increase the breast size using a fat transfer technique or some implants if needed.
