Over time a number of factors such as weight loss, age and motherhood can have a huge impact on the shape and perkiness of your breasts.

It’s no fault of your own and even though some exercises can improve the perkiness of your breasts, sometimes it doesn’t give you the results you desire.

A breast lift is a fantastic way to make your breasts perky again and can give your breasts a fuller and shapelier appearance.

What is a breast lift?
The medical name for a breast lift is a mastopexy procedure. This procedure involves removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple and some soft tissue. The end result is a natural looking lift and perkier breasts.

Breast lifts can be performed at the same time as a breast augmentation or by themselves. Having a breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift is usually recommended for people that would like to increase the size of their breasts.

What are the benefits of a breast lift?
Having a breast lift comes with many benefits. The breasts will be perkier and shapelier once you have recovered from surgery and the results can be noticed immediately. Final results are revealed when the post-operative swelling has subsided.

Regardless of whether the breast lift has been performed on its own or with an augmentation, the procedure offers natural results. A lot of women have also commented on how comfortable and confident they feel when not wearing a bra and have found that they have access to more styles of clothing.

Finally, the main benefit of a breast lift is an improvement in your confidence and self-esteem and can make you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Who can have a breast lift?
Although both men and women have breast tissue, a breast lift procedure tends to be aimed at women. This is because of the fact that women have a larger volume of breast tissue and usually want to keep this volume.

However, in the case of a male having excess or sagging breast tissue, due to a hormone imbalance, age or extreme weight loss, a breast reduction can be carried out. This procedure follows the same principles as a breast lift, although volume is removed to create a flatter chest.

Am I a good candidate for a breast lift?
Regardless of your age, if life has had an impact on the perkiness of your breasts and you no longer feel as confident with them, you could be the perfect candidate for a breast lift procedure.

However, there are a few things that will make you an ideal candidate for a breast lift:

  1. You need to be in good overall health
  2. You need to make sure you have realistic expectations of what can be achieved
  3. You should be in a position of sound mental health to enable you to make a clear decision on whether surgery is for you
