Is a Breast Lift for You?

Every day we see women from all over Orange County for a variety of breast issues. Whether it be for sagging, uneven breasts,decreased breast volumedrooping nipples or stretched out areolas (the darker area surrounding the nipples) a breast lift can recreate a youthful shape and lift to the breasts. Often a breast augmentation or reduction is done in addition to a breast lift if the breast volume needs to be increased or decreased to achieve the desired results. Breast lift surgeries are among the more popular and more satisfying cosmetic surgeries for our Orange County clients.

When is it appropriate to get a breast lift? Pregnancy, nursing, large pendulous breasts, significant weight gain or loss, normal aging, and heredity often cause undesirable sagging. Sometimes breast implants alone can achieve a desired lift but often it’s not as much as a breast lift can offer. A breast lift is also a good idea when the tissue surrounding the nipple or areola has become stretched out.

Breast lift offer many, many benefits. After having a breast lift surgery women will have improved breast shape, projection, and symmetry. Their breasts take on a more youthful appearance and they look better in and out of clothes. It’s not any surprise that women report increased self-confidence after breast lift surgery. Breast lift results can diminish over time because of gravity and aging but it is a very slow process and women enjoy the results of a breast lift for years to decades after surgery. Keep in mind though, the results can also be compromised if you become pregnant or gain a large amount of weight after the surgery.

As a recap here are the common reasons we perform breast lifts here in Orange County:

  • Nipples and areolas that point downward, or are positioned below the breast crease
  • Breasts that are pendulous and sagging
  • Breasts that seem deflated substance or firmness
  • Breasts that appear asymmetric, one may be firm and well positioned while the other is not
  • Breasts that are unequal in size
  • Breasts that are relatively small
  • Even that are large and heavy can be lifted, but the results may not be as long-lasting as a breast lift performed on smaller breasts
