Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

Serving Knoxville, Sevierville, Knox County & nearby areas of Tennessee

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts for certain reasons, you may be a candidate for a breast lift. Women seeking this type of procedure typically experience sagging, drooping breasts or otherwise have cause to seek a procedure lifting and firming the breasts.

In Knoxville, all of Knox County, and Sevierville, Tennessee, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto can determine the best way to rejuvenate your breasts and restore a youthful breast appearance.

Reasons for a Breast Lift

A breast lift rejuvenates breast appearance by improving:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Flattened or elongated breast appearance
  • Nipples falling below the breast crease
  • Asymmetrical breasts

By removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue, a breast lift eliminates a saggy breast appearance and returns the breasts to a firmer, more youthful position and appearance.

There are many different reasons that may cause the various breast characteristics described above; learn more about breast lifts by visiting our breast lift questions page. Sagging, drooping breasts result from:

  • Aging
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Pregnancy
  • Effects of gravity

Pregnancy, as well as fluctuations between gaining and losing weight, can cause the breasts to stretch, lose volume and droop downward. Aging and other factors can cause your breast skin to lose elasticity, leaving the breasts more susceptible to the downward pull of gravity.

Breast Lift Considerations

As you decide whether a breast lift is right for you, you should consider whether you plan to become pregnant in the near future. A breast lift will not interfere with your pregnancy, but the physical changes that occur may negatively impact the results of your breast lift and lead to breast sagginess. If you plan to become pregnant soon, you may want to wait until after childbirth to pursue your breast lift.

If your dissatisfaction with your breasts stems from desiring larger breasts, you may want to consider breast augmentation. Although a breast lift may enhance the overall shape of your breasts, it cannot increase size. In some cases, a breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation to enhance size while restoring a youthful, rejuvenated breast appearance.
