While a breast lift can be performed at any age it is recommended that the procedure be undertaken only when breast development has been completed and following childbearing/ breast-feeding years. Although some women may decide to have their breasts lifted before having children, you should discuss such plans with our qualified surgeon prior to making definite decisions.
In assessing you as a candidate for breast lift surgery, the doctor will carefully check the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin and the positioning of your nipples and areola. If you are overweight, it might very well be suggested that you stabilize your weight before having this type of surgery.
Am I a candidate for a breast lift?
If you are satisfied with the size of your breasts but wish to restore a more youthful contour, you may be a candidate for a breast lift procedure, also referred to as a mastopexy.
If however, you have lost a considerable amount of breast tissue volume (which is more commonly the case) it will most likely be recommended that you consider having breast implants placed at the same time of breast lift surgery.
In general since the nipples and areolas remain attached to the breast tissue during this surgery, sensation in this area is preserved. While breast-feeding may still be possible, this cannot be guaranteed.
Although complications from this surgery are limited, your expectations and concerns need to be discussed prior to proceeding with your surgery.
