Most women experience some degree of breast sagging (technically called “ptosis”) as they grow older – especially after having children. A breast lift is usually the most effective way to address this problem. If you are wondering whether or not you are a breast lift candidate, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you happy with the shape of your breasts – just not the size?
- Are your nipples located at or below the level of your breast fold?
- Do your breasts have a significant amount of loose skin?
If you answered “yes” to all of the above questions, you would most likely benefit from a breast lift. We will consider several different factors when determining which type of breast surgery is right for you, but these questions are a good starting point. If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts in addition to the sagging, you may benefit from combining your breast lift with a breast augmentation.
We will use the VECTRA® 3D imaging system during your breast surgery consultation to help you visualize how different procedures may affect your overall appearance, as well as to help us understand the specific results you want to achieve.
