Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?

Breast lift surgery addresses sagging breast tissue and nipple displacement. It is a good solution for breasts that have lost perkiness due to pregnancy, weight fluctuations, aging or genetics. If your breasts have lost their natural lift and you are unhappy with the results, you may be the ideal candidate for this procedure.

To be a good candidate for breast any breast surgery, you must be:

  • A nonsmoker
  • In good overall health
  • Able to take time away from work and family obligations for a short recovery
  • Willing to carefully follow pre and postoperative directions
  • Realistic in your expectations

Breast lift surgery can improve the position and projection of the breasts, but it may not be able to completely transform your body. During your initial consultation at our Andover, MA or Nashua, NH office, Dr. Chatson will listen to your desires, assess your frame, and provide you with honest information about your best treatment options.

Breast Lift and Volume Loss

Breast lift surgery does not address volume loss. In fact, the surgery itself may even slightly reduce cup size. If you have lost volume in addition to lift, or if you simply desire a fuller and more pronounced bust, it may be best to combine breast lift with breast augmentation.

Breast lift with implants can help improve breast:

  • Shape and size
  • Symmetry
  • Projection
  • Location
  • Lift

These procedures, when performed together, often enhance the entire upper body, bringing the bust into better alignment with surrounding curves and features. During your initial consultation, Dr. Chatson can discuss the benefits and limitations of different breast surgery options to help you determine which techniques will be best for your specific needs.
