How do you know when is a good time to get that breast lift that you have been dreaming of? We have come up with 9 signs that will tell you when it might be a good time to start looking for a surgeon.
1. You’ve Finished Having Children
While it is possible to get a breast lift before you’ve finished having kids, it’s not generally recommended. This is because your boobs will grow again, and possibly lead to deflation again, which might mean the need for a second surgery.
2. You’re in Generally Good Health
Good health is important when going under the knife! Make sure to disclose all relevant medical history and health concerns to your doctor first. The risk of complications goes up when you’re not in good health.
3. You’re Financially Committed to Your Decision
If you are committed to paying back a loan, or already have money set aside for your lift, then you have nothing to worry about. Make sure you have a sound financial payment plan in place before committing to your surgery.

4. Your Weight Has Stabilised
If you’ve been losing or gaining weight, then you will want to wait until your weight has stabilised for at least 3 months to get the best outcome from your breast lift.
5. You Realise that You May Need Implants Too
Sometimes, a breast lift alone is not enough to get those full-looking breasts back. If the surgeon urges you to consider implants alongside a lift, it’s because they have your best interests at heart.
6. You Have Enough Time Set Aside for Recovery
You do most of your recovery in the first 2 weeks post-surgery. However, in this time you won’t want to be doing your regular duties due to the risk of the surgery not settling properly and pain occurring. Looking after a 3-year-old, for example, would be best avoided.
7. You Understand the Risks of Surgery
Along with the surgery come the risks of complications, be they allergic reactions, scarring, and rippling. Be very careful with the surgeon you choose to minimise the risks.
8. You Have a Good Support Person Handy
Following surgery, you are going to want to have a loved one around to care for you and be your nurse a bit! Do you have a partner, relative, or friend who can fulfil this important role for you?
9. You’re Committed to Finding a Good Surgeon
You don’t want to be taking risks with your health and your ultimate results. Choosing the right surgeon may mean shopping around, reading over qualifications very carefully, and trawling through clinic before and after pics. When you find the right surgeon though, it will be worth it.
