As you go through life, certain lifestyle habits and events can change the shape and appearance of your breasts. For instance, pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause your breasts to look deflated and/or saggy, as can rapid weight loss and aging. If you’re feeling less youthful and feminine due to the appearance of your breasts, a cosmetic procedure known as breast lift surgery can help rejuvenate and restore that desired look of femininity.
Here’s a close look at how breast lift surgery can help improve your feminine silhouette.
What exactly can a breast lift do?
A breast lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure that reshapes and raises your breasts. When your breasts have started to sag, it’s usually because the skin on your breasts has lost its elasticity, which can be caused by aging, weight loss, pregnancy, and/or breastfeeding.
In some cases, a breast lift can offer much more than just raised, reshaped breasts. A breast lift can help correct asymmetry, which is when one breast is noticeably larger than the other. A breast lift can also help reduce the size of your areolas, which is the darker skin that surrounds your nipples.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your breasts for any reason, consult with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss how you want your breasts enhanced. An experienced, board-certified cosmetic surgeon can discuss whether your goals are realistic, and make recommendations on certain breast enhancement procedures that can help. In some cases, you might find that you’re a better candidate for breast augmentation, which can help your breasts look fuller and more voluminous.
Is a breast lift right for you?
Ideal candidates for breast lift surgery are typically healthy women who have realistic expectations about how surgery can help improve the appearance of their breasts. If this sounds like you, you’re most likely an ideal candidate.
Here are other qualifying factors that could make you an ideal breast lift candidate:
- Breasts that look saggy, elongated, and/or droopy
- Stretch marks
- Large or outstretched areolas
- Breast asymmetry
- Difficulty finding bras that fit properly
- Feeling self-conscious about your breasts
The bottom line is that if you’re feeling frustrated, sad, or less confident about yourself due to the appearance of your breasts, you might be an ideal candidate for breast lift surgery or another breast enhancement surgery. Breast lift surgery not only improves the appearance of your breasts, but can boost your confidence and self-esteem, and make you feel younger, more attractive, and more comfortable in bras, tops, dresses, and swimsuits.
