Changes in a women’s weight, such as significant weight loss, pregnancies, or breastfeeding, can impact one’s breasts as well. The breasts can change in size during pregnancy, or become sagging and deflated with weight loss or breastfeeding. Women who are unhappy with these changes in their chest area often decide to speak to a plastic surgeon about treatments such as the breast lift.
What is a breast lift?
The team of Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads in Virginia describe the breast lift as a procedure dedicated to lifting the breast tissues, removing excess skin and tissues from the breasts, and reposition the nipples for a more youthful appearance. All of this is done while maintaining a natural appearance. Many women find that this procedure can help them feel more confident in their overall appearance.
Who is a candidate for a breast lift?
The best candidates for breast lift procedures are adult women who want to repair the changes that have occurred to their body over time. We encourage women to be done having children, as any improvements made may be changed with future pregnancies. It is best for women to schedule a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our team of professionals to determine if their needs would be met with breast lift surgery.
What about breast augmentation?
Some women who undergo a breast lift may also decide to add breast implants to increase the size of their breasts while having surgery. Combining breast augmentation with a breast lift is common and can be done to reduce costs and recovery time needed following these procedures. We can work with patients to help them decide which breast surgery is appropriate for their needs and can be used to achieve the results they strongly desire.
