A skilled plastic surgeon can lift, raise and even reposition your breasts to align with your beauty goals. A breast lift can improve or create cleavage and alleviate self-consciousness associated with sagging breasts. There are many breast lift benefits, but is it the right procedure for you? Here are some reasons it just might be.
1. You’ll Look More Proportionate
Drooping breasts often appear smaller than they are, due to poor projection (i.e. your breasts hang down rather than sticking out). Getting a lift can restore those sexy contours and help you fill out your favorite clothes.
It’s a lot more fun to get dressed up or try out new fashion trends when you love your shape.
2. It May Improve Your Self-Esteem
Research shows that women who have had plastic surgery feel better about themselves. Many feel more youthful and feminine, and may even enjoy some career benefits after getting a breast lift. When you feel comfortable in your own body, you’re a lot more likely to put yourself out there and participate.
3. It Can Be Complemented by Augmentation
One of the lesser known breast lift benefits is that the procedure can be combined with breast augmentation for women seeking more dramatic results. There is a misnomer that breast lifts are only for large-breasted women. Small breasts can be lifted, too. Implants can be added at the same time if more fullness is desired. Breast enhancement procedures can be customized to give you the most beautiful possible results.
These are just a few of the many breast lift benefits. Some women even find relief from back pain after having a lift. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon about what a breast lift could do for you.
