Throughout their lives, many women will begin to experience breast sagging caused by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or age. A breast lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and tightens the tissue around the breasts. A breast lift alone can greatly enhance your breasts in many ways, or can be paired with another procedure, such as a breast augmentation, to create more dramatic results. Read on to learn more about the areas of the breast a breast lift can adjust.
Placement of the Nipple/Areola
As your breasts begin to sag, your nipples might get pulled downward. If your nipples are pointed downward or positioned below your breast crease, you could benefit from a breast lift. A lift would reposition the breasts so that the nipples face outward and are in the appropriate spot.
A breast lift not only reduces sagging, it also reshapes the breast tissue, making the breasts look fuller and rounder. If you experience breasts that are asymmetrical, a breast lift procedure can restore your breasts to a more rounded, symmetrical shape.
Before considering a breast lift, ask yourself if you are happy with the size of your breasts in a bra. Do you just want the rounded, perky look that a bra gives you? If this is the case, a breast lift alone can give you results you will be happy with. However, if you see your breasts as too small or too big, you might consider a breast augmentation or reduction to pair with a lift. If your breasts go beyond sagging and have a deflated look due to a dramatic weight loss or pregnancy, a breast implant can give you the volume you need.
