Thinking About a Breast Lift?
What is Breast Lift?
Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure that removes and tightens breast tissue to lift them in a specialized way. After this surgery, the appearance of the breast can be changed and aligned in a positive way.
According to a recent study by American plastic surgeons, breast augmentation has grown by 70 % since 2000.
Sometimes the circle around the nipple enlarges over time, which can be treated with a breast lift surgery. Breast lift rejuvenates the appearance of the breasts and lifts the breasts proportionately without damaging their tissue.
Causes of sagging breasts
Women’s breasts usually change over time and lose their youth and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can occur due to the following factors:
- Loss or gain weight
- Age increasing
The surgeon may use different techniques for breast lift. The technique used to lift your breasts can vary depending on the following:
- Breast size and appearance
- The size and position of the halos around the breasts
- The intensity of sagging breasts
- The texture of the skin and its elasticity
Breast lift candidates
Breast lift is a process that is not usually used to treat a specific complication. Breast lifts give different results for each person and may not go according to your ideals.
Therefore, the best candidate for breast lift is as follow:
- A physical health and fix weight play can have an effective role in any type of surgery.
- No smoking
- Having a bad feeling about the appearance of the breasts, losing their beauty and volume
- Small and droopy breast
- Avoiding to wear under wear for a long period which cause the nipple droopy

What breast lift cannot do?
Breast lift cannot change the size or roundness of your breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller, you should have a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery.
If you are looking to make your breasts look smaller than they are now, you can combine a breast lift with breast reduction surgery. We need to mention that the decision to choose the best breast surgery method is the responsibility of a plastic surgeon.
Breast prosthesis and breast lift
It is possible that some women are interested in breast prosthesis in addition to breast lift. Breast prosthesis makes the breasts look fuller and at the same time creates a beautiful line between the breasts. Breast prostheses can be done during or after a breast lift, depending on the opinion of your plastic surgeon.
Breast lift and pregnancy
A breast lift is best done when you no longer intend to have children. As mentioned earlier, pregnancy and breastfeeding increase breast size. This sagging and stretched breast can be improved with a breast lift.
It is important to note that severe weight loss can have a negative effect on breast lift results.
