Who Really Needs a Breast Lift?

March 28, 2012 12:46 am

Let’s be realistic. When you are fully clothed in winter garb, it is hard to tell if your breasts sag, your nipples point toward your toes, or if you’ve lost the volume you used to enjoy. With the right undergarments, your breasts can actually look quite normal.

But the fact that you can make do by wearing armor-like bras and concealing tops is not really the issue, is it? That’s probably not why you are considering a breast lift.

With summer coming, we relish the idea of wearing halter tops, sundresses, and even bikinis—outfits that show off your cleavage. This may be the time of year when you realize you really want a breast lift.

In addition to having more freedom in your fashion choices, the decision to have a breast lift also has to do with how you look in the buff. Maybe, whenever you see yourself in the mirror, you see the figure you once had hiding within the figure you now have. That can take a psychological toll on you. This is not the body you’re used to. These are not the breasts you remember. This is not the image you want to see reflected back at you.

Even if no one else ever sees your breasts as you see them, they can still weigh as heavily on your mind as they do on your chest. Sagging breasts are a common concern, and the condition can affect your self-esteem, making you feel less attractive and older than you are.

Women develop sagging breasts for a number of reasons, from pregnancy and breast feeding to aging and weight loss. Stuffing your breasts into an uncomfortable, padded, underwire bra can become tiresome or even painful. Clothes designed to hug a woman’s curves may hang awkwardly on your frame if your breasts sag.

If you’ve read up to this point and thought “that’s me,” then take heart because there’s hope: a Breast Lift. You may be a good candidate for this cosmetic procedure if your weight is stable and within a healthy range for your body type. A breast lift can help if:

Your nipples and areolas point downward.
The skin around your nipples is stretched.
Your nipples hang below your breast crease.
Your breasts are flat and elongated.
You are bothered by your sagging breasts.
You have realistic expectations of the outcome.
