Pregnancy and breastfeeding have several effects on a woman’s body, especially the breasts. Women often experience sagging, drooping and a loss of volume and shape, which can lead to decreased self-confidence. With a breast lift procedure, perkiness and shape can be restored safely and effectively.
Women who are interested in maintaining their cup size and improving the elevation of their breasts may be ideal candidates for breast lift surgery. In some instances, the breasts may have to be lifted substantially to shape them and set them in a better position, potentially losing some volume. The extent of the surgery will depend on how severe the sagging issue is and how much volume has been lost. It will also depend on what cosmetic look the patient desires.
During breast lift surgery, there are different techniques that can be used, but incisions around your areola and/or breast crease are typical. If you have gone up or down in cup size during childbirth and breastfeeding, you may opt to receive a breast augmentation along with the lift. This can be discussed with our medical team prior to surgery.
Many women find that the breast lift is not as invasive as other breast enhancement surgeries, but it does leave visible scarring. These will fade over time and are usually not visible outside of bras and other clothing. Before surgery, you will be asked about your incision scar preferences, and the appropriate technique will be chosen for you.
