Could a Breast Lift Help Me?

Posted November 27, 2019 in Breast Lift

The female body is beautiful in all its walks of life. However, some women feel unhappy due to sagging, drooping breasts, especially women who have felt the effects of aging, pregnancy, and/or weight fluctuations. Breast lift surgery is perfect for the following candidates who are dealing with breast sagging and other related complaints.

For Women with Saggy Breasts

Droopy, saggy breasts are often the main reason a woman may want a breast lift. If your breasts are sagging, a breast lift can help you by removing the overstretched, excess skin and creating a more elevated, youthful, and rounded breast shape and position.

For Women Who Want Youthful, Perky Breasts

Breast lift surgery can also help by creating perkier breasts. By addressing position and shape issues, breast lift surgery corrects an aesthetic commonly associated with aging or “older women.” This gives your whole figure a more youthful and perky feminine shape.

For Women with Elongated, Flattened Breasts

If your breasts have become elongated, pendulous, or flattened over time, a breast lift can help. Breast lift surgery removes the excess skin and tightens the breast tissue to create firmer, shapelier breasts.

For Women with Breasts at Different Levels or with Different Breast Shapes

Certain breast asymmetries, such as differing levels of sagging or different breast shapes, can also be helped by getting a breast lift. The procedure can lift both breasts so that they are balanced at an appropriate elevation. If shape correction is needed, breast lift surgery can improve the shape of elongated or pendulous breasts and ensure that both breasts are more even in appearance.

For Women Who Want Smaller Areolas

The areolas, which are the darker circles that surround the nipples, can sometimes become overstretched to the point that they are unnaturally large. A breast lift can narrow the areolas so that they have a more youthful and attractive shape and size.

For Women with Low or Downward Pointing Nipples

Sometimes when a woman’s breasts sag, the nipples appear very low on the breasts. They may even point downward toward the ground. A breast lift can reposition the nipples so that they are placed higher on the breasts and point in a more upward and forward natural direction.

NOT For Women Who Desire a Size Change...

A breast lift does not change the size of the breasts. However, sometimes the breasts may seem to change size due to the elimination of excess skin and the process of tightening and firming the breasts. With a breast lift, minimal or no breast tissue is removed but the tissues are redistributed, and in some cases this results in a change in bra size even up to one full cup. Even so, the breasts are still essentially the same size, except that they are more lifted, youthful, and firm.

...But Women Can Combine a Breast Lift with Another Breast Surgery to Change Size

If you have one or more of the previous breast concerns and you also desire a breast size change, you can combine your breast lift with a size changing breast procedure. A breast lift with augmentation allows you to boost the size of your breasts so that in addition to being more elevated, they are also larger and fuller. A breast lift with reduction allows you to reduce the size of your breasts so that in addition to being more lifted, they are also smaller, lighter, and more proportionate.

Many women are candidates for breast lift surgery, which can restore a youthful, rounded, and elevated breast appearance. To schedule your breast lift personal consultation, contact Dr. Taleisnik online or call or text Linae at (657) 294-8375.
