About plastic surgery

The breast lift is one of the more popular plastic surgery procedures among women. Plastic surgery is a personal decision. Once someone considers undergoing this procedure, it is important to understand what to expect and be realistic about the outcome.

It is important to understand that any woman who is considering undergoing a breast lift first needs to be approved to undergo the procedure. Good candidates include women who are physically healthy, at a healthy weight, do not smoke, and who want to improve the look of their breasts.

Reasons to think about getting a breast lift

The information below is on the topic of when a woman should consider undergoing a breast lift procedure performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.

When breasts start to sag, droop

There are many reasons why a woman would experience sagging or drooping breasts. Some of the more common include aging, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, smoking, sunburn, and a lack of proper support. Women who are experiencing this problem can undergo a breast lift in order to restore the elasticity of their breasts. This means they can expect their breasts to be firmer, perkier, and have a more attractive shape after undergoing breast lift surgery.

When breasts become flat, elongated

Flat breasts or elongated breasts are often experienced by women of an older age. While this is considered to be a natural change in breasts as women age, it does not mean that women have to accept these changes. Instead, women have the choice to undergo a breast lift procedure from an experienced plastic surgeon. When they do, they can expect their breasts to be lifted in a way that allows them to feel more confident in the way their breasts look.

When the areola, nipples point downward

Women who are experiencing the problem of their areola and/or nipples pointing in a downward direction can undergo a breast lift in order to reposition their nipples. Breast lift surgery can make it so a woman’s nipples are once again facing in a forward position. For women who are concerned that they will experience changes in nipple sensation, it is important to understand that the sensitivity of their nipples often returns to normal a few months or so after undergoing the surgical procedure.
