Breast Lift – What It Is and What It Can Do

Breast enhancement has long been one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures, but there are several surgical options available depending on what you would like to achieve. A breast lift is one of the most popular options available.

A breast lift can help rejuvenate breasts that have a somewhat droopy or saggy appearance, returning them to a more youthful position. This can occur as women age, fluctuate in weight, or have children. There are different techniques for breast lifts, and the one that is right for you depends on the amount of breast size and shape, the size and position of the areolas, the degree of sagging or droop, and the skin quality and elasticity.

By removing the excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue, it creates a more youthful and attractive contour. The lift procedure alone does not enhance breast size, however, in most cases, only unneeded skin is removed and not breast tissue, so your breasts will appear fuller and more shapely as a result. Should you desire additional volume to renew your breasts to the size and shape they were before the loss of size following pregnancy or weight loss, you may need an implant in addition to the lift.
