Am I A Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

As women age, the elasticity of their skin begins to diminish as collagen and elastin production decreases. Hormonal changes and giving birth can also cause the skin and tissues to age and lead to sagging breasts. On top of that, women who lose weight or have larger breasts that require lots of support may also notice drooping as they get older. For these reasons and more, many women are undergoing mastopexy, also known as a breast lift procedure.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift removes excess skin and tightens up the supportive tissue to restore a natural perkiness and youthfulness to the breasts. The nipple is also placed in a more natural position at the center of the breast to ensure they are not pointing downward or drooping. While a breast lift tends to be less invasive than a breast augmentation, many people elect to have the two procedures together to give their breasts the most youthful and rejuvenated look possible.

Are You A Good Breast Lift Candidate?

Everyone has their own unique reason. But how do you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure? There are a few specifications that can help you determine if this is the right procedure for you. They include the following:


The shape and volume of breasts can often change after breastfeeding as the mammary glands expand and contract. Hormonal changes also cause the breasts to swell and shrink in various stages after giving birth. Sagging can also be contributed to weight loss.

Restoring Youthful Nipples

Nipples can become elongated over time, and the areolas can stretch out and become larger. A breast lift can reduce the size of the areolas and reposition the nipples to a central position for a more youthful look.

Restoring Symmetry

When women develop asymmetrical breasts and/or nipples, this can create a distorted body image and lead to feelings of inadequacy or self-consciousness. By restoring your breasts’ symmetry, you can regain your confidence and feel more at home in your body once again.
