Can a breast lift help me? Shirley B.

Hi Shirley, thank you for your question. A breast lift is recommended for sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume and drooping nipples and stretched areolas (the darker area surrounding the nipples), to recreate a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. If there is too little or too much breast volume, a breast augmentation or breast reduction might be recommended in addition to a lift. It is commonly done for those whose breast shape has sagged due to pregnancy, nursing, gravity, weight gain or loss, normal aging, and heredity. Such procedures will improve breast shape, projection, and symmetry, giving the breasts a more youthful appearance, giving the patient a measure of self-confidence. However, the effects of a breast lift might slowly diminish over time because of gravity and aging. A breast lift leaves scars that will be hidden in a bra or swimsuit but more importantly, subsequent pregnancy may\ compromise your surgical results.
