Whether you envy models or the body that you had when you were younger, you might be starting to consider the benefits of a breast lift. Instead of looking dull and saggy, you want your breasts to appear perky. Speaking with our medical team at Georgia Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery can determine if you are a good candidate or not, but here are some guidelines for the breast lift procedure.
Completely Developed Breasts
Some women start to think about what they don’t like on their bodies when they are quite young. However, if your breasts are not fully developed, getting a breast lift is not a good idea. After the lift, your breasts just might grow more and begin to sag again. You want to wait to see what your breasts will look like in their fully developed state. If you give them a chance to grow in, you may be surprised and delighted with what you see.
You also must consider the reasons why breasts sag in the first place. After the body goes through pregnancy and breastfeeding, then your breasts may begin to sag. Therefore, you may decide to go for a breast lift now only to need to have the procedure done again after you give birth to your children. Consider waiting until you are finished with childbearing and breastfeeding before you have a breast lift.
If you have ever tried to battle gravity, you’ve probably lost the war. People who are good candidates for breast lifts are those who have reasonable expectations about what their breasts will look like at the end of the procedure. For example, let’s say that you think you’ll perpetually be able to go without a bra because your breasts will be so perky. Setting up an expectation like that is damaging. When you grow older, you may need to have another breast lift done to reverse further sagging that has occurred.
