We would love to stay looking young forever. But, the reality is that life takes a toll on our youthful appearance, even our breasts. Age, gravity, pregnancies, and fluctuations in weight can cause your breasts to have a saggy elongated shape. A breast lift is the plastic surgery Lubbock women are looking for to give their breasts the youthful appearance they used to have.
Consider How You Feel About Your Breasts
If you are wondering if you are a good candidate for a breast lift, you can do a simple pencil test. Place a pencil under the fold of your breast and see if the pencil stays in place when you let go of it. You can also ask yourself a few questions about how you feel about your breasts.
- Do your breasts sag?
- Do your nipples point downward?
- Do you have larger areolas?
- Are you satisfied with your breast symmetry?
A breast lift can be combined with breast implants or breast reduction if you want to change the volume of your breasts.
Consider Your General Health and Lifestyle
Because your breasts are affected by life changes, and surgical recovery is affected with lifestyle and general health, you should consider if it’s the right time in your life for a breast lift.
- Are you in good health?
- Do you smoke?
- Are you finished having children?
- Is your weight stable?
When the time is right in your life for a breast lift, you can expect to have a positive experience with your plastic surgery. A breast lift is a safe procedure with positive results.
