In brief: Breast Lift Common
A breast lift is common.
This procedure addresses sagging, deflated breasts by removing skin, raising the nipple location, and sometimes readjusting the shape of the breast tissue itself. The patient trades a scar on the breast for an improved overall breast shape. This surgery is often combined with breast implants for augmentation and improved upper breast pole fullness.

In brief: Lifts very common
A breast lift is a very common procedure, often performed alone, or, in combination with an implant.
Most women who have had children have some degree and ptosis, or drooping the the breast, which will benefit from a lift. There is always some trade-off for better shape vs. Scar.

In brief: Yes, do it right!
Breast lift is a common procedure, uncommonly correctly performed! you must do your research about who and how you plan to get this done though! read reviews on your surgeon, and carefully review postoperative results! various types of breast lift patterns, variations, & long-term durability.
Implants never lift breasts! shop around, get the best job done by the bet person around.

In brief: Yes.
Very commonly performed procedure to elevate the position of the breasts and nipple/areola complexes on a woman's chest wall.
The operation will vary depending on the specifics of the patient's anatomy and goals. Trade-offs include scarring and other risks. Sometimes, breast augmentation (implants) added for more volume/fullness.

In brief: YES
Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a very common procedure.
For patients who are unhappy with the shape of their breasts and are looking for a long-term fix for sagging- mastopexy is the answer. Mastopexy will not improve fullness in the upper part of the breast as well as an implant. Consequently, many patients will elect to have an implant placed at the same time or at a later date.

In brief: Yes
Breast lift is a common procedure, especially in women who have had their breasts "deflate" after pregnancy and nursing.
Having said that, many women with this problem do not need a breast lift, but simply need breast implants to fill out the empty skin envelope. Implants are simpler and leave fewer scars. Most women who are candidates for a lift can get the same effect from a good bra.
