Are You A Candidate for a Breast Lift?

Posted on October 22, 2020 by: Dr. Rocheford

After having kids or after a certain amount of time, gravity starts to take its toll on the body. Gravity can be especially difficult on the breasts. That’s why some people opt for a breast lift. A breast lift is a surgery that helps restore the shape of the breasts to their perky state. However, a breast lift isn’t for everyone. Here are some ways to tell if a breast lift is the best surgery.

You are happy with the size of your breasts

It’s important to understand that a breast lift will not increase the size of your breasts. Your breasts will only change in shape. If you want larger breasts, you should talk to your plastic surgeon about getting implants instead.

You are in good health

Any time you have surgery, you are putting yourself under some level of risk. You need to make sure that you are healthy enough to withstand the pressure of the surgery. Some of the most common reasons people wouldn’t be healthy enough to undergo surgery include heart problems, cancer, or mental instability. You are considered high risk if you fall within a 5% mortality rate or your doctor sees signs of body dysmorphia.

You want to change the appearance of your breasts

The main reason to get a breast lift is to change the appearance of your breasts. The surgery is most effective if your breasts aren’t necessarily the same size or if they have started to sag a bit. The surgery will make your breasts look younger and attractive again.

You don’t plan on having any more children

Pregnancy and breastfeeding take a serious toll on the breasts. That’s why you don’t want to get a breast lift until you are done having children. If you get the surgery then get pregnant again, you will almost certainly undo the effects of the surgery. You’ll have to get another surgery once the breastfeeding is over. Just wait until you are done having kids.

If you want to improve your self-esteem

Many women gather confidence from the way they look. Getting a breast lift can make a woman feel better about herself and increase her confidence. When a woman goes through the day with confidence, she is able to tackle more throughout her day and develop better relationships. Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves.

A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery that more and more women are choosing to help them look and feel their best. You deserve to look and feel your best, too. Talk to your plastic surgeon to have a consultation today. If you are a good candidate, you will discover just how great your breasts can look.
