Sagging breasts with a “deflated” appearance often go hand in hand with aging, pregnancy or fluctuating weight. You’re not very likely to welcome this particular change, but you don’t need to simply accept it. While you can’t stop yourself from getting older, the potential benefits of a breast lift may help to make the aging process feel a little less daunting.
A Boost to Your Self-Esteem
The aesthetic benefits of a breast lift may seem obvious, but what about the effect your appearance can have on your general well-being? As your cosmetic surgeon reshapes your breast tissue and tightens the supporting tissue, they could also be boosting your self-esteem. Neater, repositioned breasts may also enable you to wear a wider range of clothes, as you could no longer feel the need to disguise your chest.
The benefits of a breast lift may not be purely aesthetic – you could potentially see an improvement in other areas of your life, too.
The Start of a Healthier Lifestyle
If your breasts get in the way and cause discomfort when you exercise, a breast lift could be the start to a healthier lifestyle. Less pain and irritation could mean you’re more likely to hit the gym and try other physical activities that you may have previously avoided due to possible breast discomfort.
Improved Physical Well-Being
Sometimes the appearance of drooping breasts isn’t the main problem, as sagging combined with a large breast size can cause chafing or even back and neck pain. Breast reduction surgery combines the benefits of a breast lift with a smaller, more proportionate breast size.
If you’re trying to decide between a breast lift and breast reduction, start by booking an initial consultation with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon with extensive recent experience of the procedure.
