Any time: It is your body, and the decision about timing is up to you and, if there is someone special, your partner.

After childbearing: Breast lifts can be done at almost any age after puberty, but because of the tendency of the breasts to enlarge with pregnancy and nursing and then "deflate, " it is best to defer these procedures until after childbearing.

Breast Lift TIming: The best time in life to undergo a breast lift is after you are finished having children. Pregnancy and breast feeding can dramatically alter the breast shape. Additionally, it is best to be at a stable weight because gaining or losing a lot of weight can also affect the size and shape of your breasts. www.dr-cooper.com.

Varies.: Understanding that many patients decide to have surgery when timing is not “ideal”, the ideal time to undergo breast lifting surgery ( in terms of helping to minimize the need for additional surgery) would be when patients have completed pregnancies, have achieved a long-term stable weight, are psychosocially stable, financially stable, and completely self-motivated. Best wishes.
