Learn About Breast Lifts

If you are feeling self-conscious about your breasts, then you may be thinking of getting breast surgery. It's important for you to understand that you want to go into the consultation with the surgeon with a bit of an open mind because what you think you are having done may not be what the surgeon needs to do in order to give you the breasts you want. Many times, someone who goes in thinking they are going to have breast augmentation learns they can have the breasts they want with a breast lift instead.

Also, you should be aware that many people who do get breast augmentation also have a breast lift done at the same time.  This is why it's a good idea to read this guide on breast lifts if you aren't happy with your breasts.

Many things can affect the youthful perkiness of breasts

A lot of people with different sizes and shapes of breasts get to a point where they feel they really could have a breast lift. Certain factors can cause their breasts to sag and cause the nipple to point more downward than it used to. Here are some of the things that can cause a person's breasts to sag and get to the point where a breast lift can be a wonderful idea for them: 

  • Gravity

  • Weight gain and weight loss

  • Aging naturally

  • Excessive exposure to sunlight

  • Smoking

  • The weight of larger breasts

  • Multiple pregnancies

  • Menopause

Signs a breast lift may be in order

Nipple direction - Youthful and perky breasts have nipples that point forward or a bit upward. Certain factors, like the ones listed above, can cause the skin on the breast to stretch and sag, which moves the nipple downward. If you see that your nipples are pointing more toward your feet, then this is exactly the type of thing that a breast lift will be able to help you with. After you have a breast lift, your nipples will point more upward, which will automatically help them look much better. 

Breast position - Youthful breasts will sit higher up on your chest than breasts that sag will. If you find that your breasts are sitting lower on your chest, then you may be a great candidate for a breast lift because it will pull your breasts back up to a higher position, which will help you to look better in clothing and feel better about the way you look. 

Breast unevenness - Do you have one breast that is larger than the other to the point it's obviously noticeable? If so, then a breast lift can often be enough to correct this issue. It should be pointed out that in extreme cases, the surgeon may suggest breast augmentation and a lift in order to correct the issue.
