What is a Breast Lift?

With many technological and procedure advances, Lubbock plastic surgery offers a variety of options to meet the individual goals of each patient. Breast augmentation is still the most performed plastic surgery, but another breast procedure is also becoming popular: the breast lift. This procedure can restore a more youthful look to your breasts without using implants. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons have seen a 70% increase in breast lift procedures being performed around the nation, a statistic that beats out breast augmentation 2-1. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, and unsure about having breast implants, a breast lift may be the procedure for you.

Why Consider a Breast Lift

As women age, breasts will naturally begin to sag. Childbirth, gravity, and aging ligaments won’t let your breasts keep their youthful appearance forever- no matter how much you exercise or eat right. If you are not interested in breast augmentation with breast implants, a breast lift procedure may better fit your cosmetic needs. Some of the aesthetic concerns women who are candidates for a breast lift have, are:

  • Enlarged Areolas
  • Droopy or saggy breasts
  • Pronounced stretch marks
  • Nipples that point down
  • Asymmetry with breasts

A breast lift is not the procedure to change your breast size. If you want your breasts to have a fuller look or to be a smaller size, you can consider combining a breast lift with augmentation or breast reduction procedures. Lubbock plastic surgery patients can easily tell if they are a good candidates for a breast lift by placing a pencil under their breast and see if the pencil stays in place when they let go.

Things to Consider with a Breast Lift

Breast lifts are usually done as outpatient plastic surgery. Lubbock cosmetic surgery is generally not covered with insurance unless it is part of a breast reconstruction. You can have a breast lift at any time after your breasts are fully mature. And, women can still breastfeed after the procedure.
