Breast lift is a breast enhancement procedure that reshapes and lifts the breasts to a higher, more youthful position on the chest wall. If you are bothered by saggy, shapeless breasts, you may be wondering if breast lift is right for you. Here, the expert plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Center, serving Sacramento and the Northern California area, share three telltale signs that it may be time for a breast lift.

Your Nipples Point Downward or Rest Below the Natural Breast Crease Line

One of the most obvious signs that a woman can benefit from a breast lift is when the nipples point southward or sit at the bottom of the breast, below the natural crease line. In addition to lifting the breast higher on the chest wall, breast lift can raise the areolas higher on the breast mound for a more youthful appearance. Breast lift can also resize areolas that have stretched out due to weight fluctuations.

You Are Unhappy with the Shape of Your Breasts

Have your breasts become deflated or shapeless due to pregnancy, weight fluctuations or the natural aging process? Or, have you always been unsatisfied with the natural shape of your breasts? Not only does breast lift raise the breasts, it also reshapes the breast tissue for a more normal and attractive appearance. The procedure can also provide balance to asymmetrical breasts.

You Are Embarrassed by Your Breast Appearance

Do you struggle with feelings of embarrassment, depression or anxiety due to the shape or position of your breasts? Do you avoid wearing swimsuits or other revealing clothing because you do not want to attract attention to your deflated or saggy breasts? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, breast lift may be right for you. After breast lift, many of our patients report feeling a boost in self-confidence and quality of life. Women are thrilled to find out that their wardrobe options expand after breast lift, and they are able to wear more flattering clothing. Feelings of self-consciousness and depression disappear as breast lift allows them to look and feel good again.
