Breast Lift Q & A

What is a breast lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and creates breasts that are tighter, firmer, and have optimal shaping. A breast lift can also address any issues with the shape, size, or placement of your nipples and areola.

Women pursue breast lifts for various reasons. Virtually all, however, want to feel more confident and secure about the shape and appearance of their breasts.

Some of the factors that cause changes in your breast tissues include:

  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Gravity and the aging process

Some women also have asymmetry between their breasts, and pursue a breast lift to create more balanced contours.

How do I know if a breast lift is right for me?

Having a breast lift is a big step, and it’s important to make an informed decision. If you’ve been unhappy with the appearance of your breasts for some time, you may want to learn more about how a breast lift could help.

If you’re hoping for larger or fuller breasts, breast augmentation may be a better approach. However, if you’re happy with the size of your breasts but want to address issues with firmness, sagging, or abnormal nipple size or positioning, a breast lift might be the way to go.

It’s also important that you time a breast lift properly. You should reach and maintain a healthy weight prior to the procedure, as weight fluctuations can ruin the results of a breast lift. You should also wait until you are done adding to your family, as pregnancy and breastfeeding can also undo some of the effects of a breast lift.

How should I prepare for my breast lift?

One way to prepare is by boosting your overall health in the months leading up to your surgery. A healthy body has an easier time healing than one that is struggling with untreated disease, hypertension, diabetes, circulatory issues, or other concerns. If you’re a smoker, make every effort to quit prior to any surgery.

You should also be open and honest with Dr. Brueck about your health history and any medications you’re currently taking. Some drugs increase bleeding or impede your blood’s ability to clot, which can be dangerous during surgery.

You may also want to schedule a mammogram to give your doctor a baseline evaluation of your breast tissue, which can be used to detect changes after your surgery and for years to come.
