A woman’s breasts are important for her sense of femininity. Breast augmentation is the most popular type of cosmetic breast surgery, but many women have discovered the secret to a perkier bustline is a breast lift. The procedure does not change the size of the breasts, so it is perfect for women who just need a little adjustment to the breast position.
How Does a Breast Lift Change My Breasts?
Pregnancy and aging take a toll on your breasts. The skin loses elasticity, so the breasts sag downward on the chest. Breast lifts are also recommended for women who have naturally low-hanging breasts. The procedure helps by removing skin and soft tissues at the lower part of the breasts so that the breast tissue is compacted into a smaller area.
Does a Breast Lift Make My Breasts Larger?
Breast enlargement is achieved with implants, but your breasts may seem larger after your breast lift. The reason is that the breasts are higher on the chest and oriented more forward than downward. If you would like to see how your breasts may look after a lift, stand in front of a mirror and raise your arms over your head. Although this is not a precise method for seeing the changes made by a breast lift, it does give you an idea of how your breasts may look after the procedure.
What Should I Expect After a Breast Lift? Will My Breasts Sag Again?
Fully recovering from breast lift surgery can take several months, but most of the swelling and discomfort is resolved within a few weeks. Breast lift surgery does not stop the aging process, nor will it prevent your breasts from sagging should you become pregnant in the future. We recommend that women wait until after their last pregnancy to have breast lift surgery.
