Top 3 Reasons Women Have Breast Lift Surgery

A breast lift procedure focuses on breast position. The procedure can improve the appearance of droopy, sagging breasts. A breast lift also known as a mastopexy is an ideal solution if you’re happy with your breast size, but not the position. During a breast lift, Dr. David Lo of Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville removes excess skin, tightens surrounding tissue and can also reposition the nipple to create a more youthful, contoured look. Since some skin is removed, breasts may appear fuller and shapelier as a result of a lift. The results of a breast lift are immediate and long-lasting.



We’ve put together a list of the top 3 reasons women choose to have a breast lift:


1) To improve the breast contour after significant weight loss

Significant weight loss can leave breasts looking empty, and drooping quite low on the abdomen. By removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding breast tissue, a breast lift can help proportion and restore the breasts’ shape.


2) To restore a better breast shape after pregnancy and breastfeeding

Pregnancy can often cause breasts to stretch and sag as they grow. A breast lift, with or without implants, can help undo these common changes and restore a more youthful contour to the bust.


3) To achieve a more youthful breast shape

As we age, our skin and tissues lose elasticity. This can cause breasts to begin to sag, and the nipple to migrate downward. A breast lift can remove the excess skin and tissue to lift and firm the breast, as well as move the nipple to a more centered position. By choosing this procedure, a woman can take years off of her appearance.

In some cases, a breast lift alone may not achieve a patient’s desired results. If you feel your breasts look “deflated” or have lost volume due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy, your cosmetic surgeon can place breast implants during breast lift surgery to restore fullness and shape to the breast. If you have always wanted larger, lifted breasts, a breast augmentation with lift can help you achieve both with a single procedure and recovery. If you want smaller breasts, you might want to combine a breast lift and breast reduction surgery.
