It is only natural to want to maintain your breast lift results, including changes to the shape and perkiness of your breasts, and this article will go into greater detail about how this can be achieved.
The CREO Clinic’s board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr Omar Tillo, is experienced in the art of breast lifts, having performed many successful lift procedures throughout his distinguished career.
How Long Does a Breast Lift Last?
The changes made by a breast lift are permanent. However, there are some genetic and external factors that can impact your results in the long term.
Factors That Impact Breast Lift Results
Sagging Due to Age
As you age, your skin begins to lose elasticity, and gravity pulls the breasts downwards, causing sagging. This is particularly the case with larger, heavy breasts.
A breast lift is designed to create a youthful, perky look in your breasts. Drastic weight gain can cause your breasts to grow and stretch the skin, resulting in stretch marks, whereas drastic weight loss can lead to the return of inelastic excess skin.
Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
For many women, pregnancy causes their breasts to grow and swell as the tissues work to create breast milk for feeding their baby. If you are breastfeeding, the stress placed on your breasts can result in sagging or lopsidedness as well as distension of the nipples.
Top Tips to Keep Boobs Perky After Breast Lift
Here are a few effective tips for keeping your boobs perky after you have undergone a breast lift:
Wear the Right Bra
A well-fitted bra can be key to maintaining the uplift that a breast lift provides. Whether that is the bra you wear every day or a sports bra for when you are doing exercise, the extra support of a quality bra will help keep the effects of gravity from causing any drooping.
Sleep on Your Back
Side sleepers should be aware that in the side position, you are much more vulnerable to sagging than when sleeping on your back. Try to sleep on your back after your breast lift and wear a soft cup bra to sleep in.
Avoid Sun Overexposure
Too much exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays will begin to break down the collagen, which maintains your skin’s tightness. Try to only enjoy sensible amounts of sunshine and always wear a high UV protection sun cream.
Eat a Healthy Diet
As weight fluctuation is an important factor in the creation of loose skin and sagging, try to keep to a healthy food routine. A moderate intake of lean proteins and healthy, vitamin-rich vegetables is a great way to maintain a balanced diet.
Work With a Dietician
It is not always easy to understand how to eat healthily; it requires planning and a deep understanding of food properties and your body’s specific needs.
The CREO Clinic’s dietician can help you understand what food routine will best help you protect your breast lift results by advising you on the foods that will keep your skin nourished and your breasts perky.
Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking lots of water is always a good idea, but particularly so after your breast lift procedure. Try to work six to eight glasses of water per day into your routine, as this will be plenty to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
To keep your body taut and trim following your cosmetic procedure, there is no better approach than regular physical activity. A healthy body will protect the new shape of your breasts by keeping weight off and improving blood circulation around the body.
However, you will need to wait until you are fully recovered before lifting weights.
Is a Breast Lift Worth It?
If you are concerned about sagging or drooping breasts, a breast lift is an excellent way of addressing these issues. A lift can raise your breasts and create tighter skin and a perkier, more youthful appearance.
Overall, a breast lift can be a worthwhile cosmetic surgery that can provide a significant boost to your quality of life. Provided you care for your body post-operation, the results of your cosmetic procedure can be enjoyed in the long-term without the need for a revision.
