If you are wondering whether you are a candidate for a breast lift, you may want to consider the following:
- Do your breasts sag and droop?
- Are your breasts asymmetrical?
- Are the nipples positioned low on the breasts?
- Have your breasts become stretched and droopy since pregnancy, weight loss, aging or other life events?
A breast lift raises the breasts and restores firmness. The effects of gravity and the stretched skin caused by weight fluctuations are common causes of breast sagginess. During a breast lift, excess skin and tissue is removed, and the breast tissue is reshaped and restored to a more appealing position on your chest.
A breast lift alone cannot increase the size of your breasts. If you want larger breasts, your lift may need to be combined with breast implants to enhance size, shape and position.
There are also various health factors influencing your candidacy. You should be in good overall health, and Dr. Dean Kleto will discuss your health history with you. You should also be mentally and emotionally prepared to accept the risks of surgery, as well as the discomfort and time associated with surgical recovery.
