Pregnancy is a beautiful thing. Many women love the experience but do not love the toll it takes on their body. If pregnancy or breastfeeding has left your breasts drooping or sagging here in Miami, consider a breast lift. This straightforward surgical procedure can help give you your pre-baby body back, and your confidence along with it!

What Is a Breast Lift?

Breast lift surgery involves removing excess skin on the chest. It also involves tightening the skin, lifting the breasts to a perkier position. The most common reasons women feel they need this procedure is they’ve been pregnant or lost a significant amount of weight. Both these things can stretch out the skin, leaving your breast tissue hanging lower than you would like. 

A breast lift in Miami can help if you are dealing with:

  • Nipples that fall below the breast crease
  • Nipples and areolas that point downward
  • One breast hanging significantly lower than the other
  • Breasts that have become pendulous in shape
  • Breasts that have become flatter
  • An overall dissatisfaction with your breasts sagging

A breast lift on its own will not add volume to your chest. If that is what you are after, you may need breast augmentation along with your lift. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

As mentioned above, women who have recently given birth are great candidates. It is best to wait until after you have finished breastfeeding, if applicable, to ensure you maintain the results of your breast lift. Other things that good candidates for a breast lift have in common include:

  • Being a non-smoker (or willing to quit — smoking can delay healing)
  • Being in good general health
  • Being at a stable weight
  • Having a positive outlook and realistic expectations for what this surgery can do

What to Expect after a Breast Lift

After your procedure, you will be given a set of aftercare instructions that is tailored to your situation. You will be able to see immediate improvements once your surgery is complete. If you maintain a healthy weight and have no further children, your results with a lift will last for many years.
