If you are experiencing drooping or sagging of your breasts, a breast lift can be an extremely effective treatment. It isn’t always easy to understand if you are a good candidate for a breast lift, but it is important to ensure that a lift will address your particular needs.

This article will work to explain breast lift surgery’s most important benefits and explore the criteria generally used to assess your suitability for the procedure.

At the CREO Clinic, our double board-certified body contouring surgeon, Dr Omar Tillo, has performed countless successful breast lift surgeries over his distinguished career. He will work diligently to help you achieve your body goals. To find out the many ways a breast lift can benefit you, book a consultation with Dr. Tillo today.

You Have Sagging Breasts

One of the most common issues addressed by a breast lift is sagging. As you age, sagging can occur, and you may become more interested in knowing how to keep your breasts perky. If your breasts appear to sit lower on your chest than you would like, a breast lift can help them to sit in a higher position, thereby increasing their perkiness.

Your Areola Placement is Low

Your areolas sit lower on their breasts than others. It is also common for your nipples to droop over time, or as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding. A lift procedure can work to reposition your nipples to a more aesthetically pleasing position that is more forward-facing and youthful in appearance.

You’re Unhappy With Your Breast Shape

One of the many benefits of a breast lift is its capacity to improve the shape of your breasts. If your breasts have become flatter, a lift can tighten up your skin and restore a shapely roundness to your breasts.

You Have Uneven Breasts

You may feel that your breasts have become gradually less symmetrical. If this is the case, a breast lift can be ideal for fixing uneven breasts, making them sit more symmetrically on your chest.

You Experience Complications From Loose Breasts

When your breasts’ skin loses its elasticity, they can feel and appear laxer. This leads to sagging and can cause various issues, such as neck and back pain. A breast lift procedure can work to firm up your breasts and help reduce the possibility of such complications.

You’re at a Healthy BMI

If you are within a healthy BMI range, you will be ideally placed to enjoy the benefits of a breast lift procedure. Should your BMI surpass 30, a breast lift will not be a viable option for you.

To help you bring your BMI down to a healthy level, speak with a dietician who can help you plan your diet in the run-up to your surgery.

You Don’t Plan to Get Pregnant Again

Any breast surgery can impact your ability to breastfeed. For many women, breastfeeding after a lift surgery will not be an issue, but a small percentage of women find themselves unable to produce milk post-procedure. 

As such, it is important to consider family planning before deciding to undergo a breast lift.
