What stage of life is appropriate to get a breast lift?

What stage of life is appropriate to get a breast lift?

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.

What is the best way to get a breast lift without surgery or implants?

What is the best way to get a breast lift without surgery or implants?

Nonsurgical lift: If father time and gravity have taken their toll on your breasts, the only option to give a lifted look is to perform a breast lift. The addition of implants is solely based on the desire for more volume. The type of life will depend on how fallen the breasts are. A small lift can be performed around the areola (dark skin around the nipple). More fallen breasts will need a bigger lift. ...Read more

If a woman were to get a breast lift because of sag, but with no implants, do they count as fake breasts?

If a woman were to get a breast lift because of sag, but with no implants, do they count as fake breasts?

No: A breast lift is not the same as breast implants. "fake" is a term you never have to use, regardless of which choice you make. You have choices, including doing both a lift and implants. Take a friend with you to your plastic surgery consult, ask to see photographs of each option. Take time to contemplate which option will be best for you before committing. Okay to go for two opinions. Be well. ...Read more

Will a breast lift hold up after breast feeding? If i get a breast lift after i finish breast feeding, what happens if i get pregnant again? Will i need to get another breast lift or will the results of the first breast lift pretty much last through havin

Will a breast lift hold up after breast feeding? If i get a breast lift after i finish breast feeding, what happens if i get pregnant again? Will i need to get another breast lift or will the results of the first breast lift pretty much last through havin

Breast lift: Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how your breasts will hold up through breast feeding after a breast lift. Some women will have their breasts return to normal size and shape while others will need to re-do their lift or add an implant. If you predict breast feeding in the near future, it is better to hold-off on your lift until you are done. ...Read more

He or she should be able to explain what you can expect after rejuvenation surgery. If you do not feel you both are on the same page with your expectations, u should not have surgery. ...Read more
