As the years go by, most women notice a gradual deterioration in the size, shape and feel of their breasts. Gravity, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight gain and weight loss all take their toll.
About Breast Lifts
It's inevitable that over time breasts sag, soften and flatten out. They even, at times, atrophy and shrink. Even if the overall volume remains the same, firmness, elasticity and erect youthful positions are often lost.
Breasts may look and feel old - but they don't have to.
A breast lift can reshape, rejuvenate, firm up, lift up and shape sagging, shrinking and atrophied breasts. It can even reduce the size of an enlarged, stretched areola (the dark pink area around the nipple.)
This procedure is much the same as that described for Breast Reduction. The only difference being that this procedure generally doesn't involve much reduction in breast volume. Please see the discussion of Breast Reduction for more information.
The Best Candidates for Breast Lift
Breast lifts can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but they won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon. The best candidates for a breast lift are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection. If you're physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
Costs of Breast Lifts
$5,550 is the national average cost for a breast lift, though accounts for the physician's fee only. The total cost for a procedure may vary by physician and include additional fees for anesthesia, surgical center or hospital stay, supplies, and other necessities.
