Reasons to consider a breast lift

When it comes to breast appearance, every woman has different concerns and goals. Our patients at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery often get a breast lift for the following reasons:

  • Restore breast volume and shape: Our breasts naturally lose volume and shape due to age, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations. Dr. Sosa reshapes sagging breasts so they seem fuller and less deflated.
  • Improve breast symmetry: Some women have one breast that is larger, lower, or a different shape than the other. Breast lift surgery can help balance out these differences and create a balanced, proportionate look.
  • Reduce physical discomfort: Large or heavy breasts can cause constant neck, shoulder, and back pain. Our team knows how to remove excess weight and tension from these areas to improve overall comfort and mobility.
  • Boost self-confidence: Many women feel self-conscious about sagging breasts, especially when wearing form-fitting clothing or swimsuits. After a breast lift, patients often report feeling more confident and comfortable.

Is there a "best" age for a breast lift?

There is no specific age requirement for a breast lift, but all candidates should be evaluated by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Sosa before moving forward. During a consultation in West Bloomfield, MI, we'll take into account the following factors to determine your candidacy:

  • Overall health: As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should be in good overall health when undergoing a breast lift. This includes having no underlying medical conditions that increase your risk of complications.
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding plans: Women who want to have more children should postpone a breast lift until after they are done breastfeeding. We want our patients to be satisfied with their results long-term and not have to undergo multiple surgeries.
  • Realistic expectations: Surgery can address drooping or sagging breasts, but it won't make the breasts dramatically larger. Patients should have realistic expectations and know the limitations involved. However, if you are interested in additional volume, Dr. Sosa can perform breast augmentation in addition to a lift.
  • Weight stability: Maintaining a consistent weight with regular exercise and a well-balanced diet can prolong the results of breast lift surgery. If you plan on losing a significant amount of weight, it may be best to wait until after reaching your goal before having a breast lift.
