3 Signs Your Breast Lift Needs a Boost

If you’re dissatisfied with the results of your breast lift because you feel your new look doesn’t meet your expectations, breast surgery revision may be a solution that can help. There are many reasons why women choose surgery revision after a breast lift, but here’s a closer look at three of the most common.

1. Asymmetry

Following a breast lift, some patients may feel dissatisfied with the position of their breasts and nipples because of remaining asymmetry. Final breast placement after surgery can depend as much on your particular tissue elasticity as the surgical technique used. If you feel your breasts seem uneven after a breast lift, breast surgery revision may help correct this discrepancy and create a more aesthetic result.

2. Remaining Ptosis

Even after a breast lift, the aging process will continue to affect your figure. This means that the results of your lift may start to look softer or you may see your breasts droop more as time passes. In some cases, women may feel that their existing ptosis was not sufficiently resolved with a first lift. Whether as the result of gravity or an unsatisfactory earlier procedure, revision surgery may be able to correct ptotic breasts and restore that more youthful, lifted look.

3. Scar Revision

In any revision surgery, my preference is for the least invasive surgical technique possible in order to avoid additional scarring. For women who are unhappy with existing scarring from previous surgeries, scar revision is a relatively straightforward procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. Thanks to new revision techniques, breast revision surgeons are often better able correct a too-visible marker of previous surgery.
