There are several breast enhancement procedures available to address your concerns, the breast augmentation being the most popular. However, in many cases, a breast lift is the preferred technique and can be combined with other procedures to optimize your results.
Here are some instances when you could benefit from a breast lift:
You experience breast sagging
Breast sagging is often the result of lax skin and weakened breast tissue. This can occur with time as you age, after an immense weight loss, or after pregnancy and breastfeeding and is a more common concern among women with larger breasts. The breast lift can reposition the breasts to a more natural position so that the nipples point forward instead of downwards. Excess skin is then removed. The results of a breast lift are younger-looking, perkier breasts.
You are unhappy with the size of your breasts
The breast lift can reposition the breasts to a higher position, causing more volume in the top of the breast, however, the procedure will not significantly change the size of the breasts. If you are happy with your current breast size and just want to address their position, the lift alone could benefit you. But if you would like your breasts to be larger or to address asymmetry of the breasts, you may benefit from an augmentation with implants to restore volume.
You are undergoing a breast reduction
When you have a breast reduction to decrease the size of overly large breasts, breast lift technique are almost always involves. When breast tissue is reduced, excess skin is often present. The breast lift can remove this excess skin and lift the breasts to a more natural position after the size is reduced.
