Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that can help restore a more youthful and lifted appearance to breasts that have begun to sag or droop. Women who are considering breast lift surgery often wonder if it’s the right choice for them and when is the right time to undergo the procedure. Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones and his team at Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists, P. C. explore some of the factors to consider when deciding if breast lift surgery is right for you.

Age and Life Changes

As women age, their breasts may start to sag or lose volume due to gravity, weight fluctuations, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast lift surgery can help restore a more youthful and lifted appearance to the breasts, but it’s important to note that the procedure is not recommended for women who are still planning to have children or who are currently breastfeeding. It’s best to wait until you’ve completed your family before considering breast lift surgery.

Breast Size and Shape

Women with smaller breasts may not experience significant sagging, while women with larger breasts may be more prone to sagging due to the weight of their breasts. If your breasts have lost volume or have begun to sag breast lift surgery may be an effective solution. During the procedure, excess skin is removed and the breasts are reshaped to a more youthful position.

Health and Lifestyle Factors

Before considering breast lift surgery, it’s important to be in good overall health and to have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. If you smoke, you may be advised to quit smoking before the surgery to reduce the risk of complications. Additionally, maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in regular exercise can help to prolong the results of the procedure.

Personal Goals and Preferences

Ultimately, the decision to undergo breast lift surgery is a personal one that should be based on your own goals and preferences. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your breasts and feel that a breast lift could help you feel more confident and comfortable in your own skin, then it may be worth considering.
