Breast lift is a revolutionary cosmetic surgery procedure that can dramatically improve the size and shape of the breasts. By reshaping and lifting the breasts, a skilled cosmetic surgeon can enhance the natural beauty of the breasts and create a more youthful and attractive appearance.
Pregnancy, breast feeding, losing a significant amount of weight and the effects of aging can leave breasts sagging and stretched out. For many women, a breast lift can help. Women with smaller breasts may see the best results from breast lift, since smaller breasts are naturally lighter than larger breasts and therefore more likely to retain their breast lift improvements longer.
At our Bergen County plastic surgery practice, Dr. Tzvi Small is skilled in performing breast lift surgery. Dr. Small can evaluate your individual situation and advise whether you are a good candidate for breast lift.
Breast Lift Candidates
Generally speaking, the best breast lift candidate is a woman who:
- Is an adult, over age 18.
- Has breasts with lower volume and stretched skin, causing them to droop.
- Is in good physical and emotional condition.
- Is not pregnant or breastfeeding.
- Does not plan on becoming pregnant in the near future.
- Is not planning on losing excessive amounts of weight.
Common Breast Lift Conditions
Candidates for breast lift may be looking to correct one or more of the following conditions:
- Stretched breast skin
- Enlarged areolas
- Breasts that are elongated or low
- Nipples that point down
- One breast that is lower than the other
Wait Until After the Baby
Women who are planning on having children in the future might want to wait to have breast lift surgery. Pregnancy can stretch the skin of the breasts, causing them to sag. Therefore, it is often best to wait until after you are done have children to undergo a breast lift, as the results of the procedure are more likely to last longer than they would if you became pregnant or were breastfeeding again.
It is also important for women who are considering breast lift to keep realistic expectations for the results of their surgery. While breast lift can achieve amazing results, even the most skilled surgeon may not be able to achieve unrealistic results. Also, you should know improvements that can be achieved through breast lift are not permanent. As time goes on, the natural effects of aging and gravity will continue to affect the size, shape and placement of your breasts.
