Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

Aug 9, 2012

If you are considering a breast lift to restore the youthful appearance of your breasts, you may wonder, am I a candidate for a breast lift? There are just a few simple criteria to meet to determine your candidacy.

First, will you benefit from a breast lift? A breast lift is a surgical procedure that can reshape breasts that have begun to sag as a result of gravity’s effects on skin and connective tissue. It works with the tissue in your breast, reshaping the breast mound and elevating the nipple-areola complex. If sagging is your primary complaint, then a breast lift can help. If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts, you might benefit more from a breast augmentation or breast reduction. Sometimes a breast lift can be combined with breast implants to increase volume at the same time as the breast is reshaped.

Second, are you in good enough health for a breast lift? You should be at or near your ideal weight, and in good general health. You should be a nonsmoker or be willing to commit to stopping smoking for about two months.

Finally, do you have realistic expectations for a breast lift? A breast lift is a good surgical procedure, but it is not magic. You have to understand what it can and cannot accomplish.

These questions are a great place to start your thinking about your breast lift, but the only way to know for sure if you are a candidate for a breast lift or any other procedure is to talk to a plastic surgeon. Please contact Gayoso Plastic Surgery in Tampa today to talk to Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso.
