Who Are the Ideal Candidates for a Breast Lift Procedure?

Breast Lift Since 2000, there has been a 70% increase in the number of patients who opt for breast lift surgeries. Due to all of the benefits that this procedure provides, it is no surprise that so many people have it done each year. If you are thinking about getting a breast lift, it is important to determine whether you are a good candidate. Here is what you should know.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for a Breast Lift Procedure?

A breast lift procedure is an effective solution for reshaping and repositioning the breasts. In addition, it can be used to reposition the nipple-areolar complex. For this reason, women who have sagging and deflated breasts tend to be good candidates for this procedure. Additionally, women who have breasts that point downwards or have nipples that rest below the breast crease can also benefit.

If you plan to get pregnant in the future, it is best to wait until afterward, until you do not want to have any more children and when your weight is stable. If your weight changes, this will impact the results of the surgery.

Your Health

You must be in good general health to be able to have breast surgery. It would be best if you did not have any medical conditions, such as diabetes, which may cause complications or block proper healing.

Let’s Get Physical

It is a good idea to take the time to do a complete self-examination before undergoing the surgery, write down your notes about what you see in the mirror, and discuss the potential results of the surgery with your doctor.

It is important to understand that your breasts do not get bigger from the lift surgery (unless you choose optional implants), but they will be firmer with a more youthful appearance.

After your physical exam, our doctor will discuss your anatomy and desired results, then make a plan based on reasonable expectations that include your understanding of the risks associated with the procedure, the post-operation care needed, and the recovery process.
