Do you find yourself wishing that your breasts looked more like they did when you were younger or that they had a different appearance overall? If so, a breast lift could be the right surgical cosmetic procedure for you. Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift is intended to lift and reshape the breast into a higher, more youthful position. Whether you are thinking about a breast lift on its own or as part of a Mommy Makeover, that may include liposuction and or an abdominoplasty, there are a few things you should consider before undergoing the procedure.
Before you decide to have a breast lift, it is important to understand what the results of the plastic surgery will be. Unlike a breast augmentation or a breast reduction, a breast lift will not significantly change the size of your breasts. If you desire larger, fuller breasts, you may want to consider having a breast lift in conjunction with a breast augmentation. If you want your breasts to be smaller, ask your doctor about having a reduction at the same time as the lift.
As with any surgery, your doctor will fully evaluate your health before determining if you are fit to undergo a breast lift. The best candidates for a breast lift are women who do not smoke and who are at a stable weight. Good overall physical health can aid in a full and speedy recovery, so expect your doctor to inquire about your general health and any pre-existing conditions you may have during your consultation.
Reasons for the Procedure
Every woman is unique and has her own reasons why she may be considering a breast lift. Some women are unhappy with their breasts because of aging or heredity, while others may not like the changes that occur after pregnancy or breastfeeding. Talk with Dr Jennifer Geoghegan about your reasons for wanting a breast lift, and together you will be able to determine whether the procedure is right for you.
