How to Tell If You Need a Breast Lift

Pregnancy, lifestyle changes, weight fluctuations, and aging all have profound effects on a woman’s body.

In our youth, breasts are full, plump, and sit high on the chest. As time goes on, it is perfectly normal to experience a reduction in breast shape and position.

As this occurs, many women seek some form of breast enhancement procedure to revitalize their breasts and restore them to their youthful glory.

But how do you know if a breast lift is the correct procedure for you? Follow this advice to find out.

Does the Appearance of Your Breasts Concern You?

The crucial factor determining your suitability for a breast lift is how you feel about your breasts and whether they make you feel self-conscious in any way. If you are not happy with the position of your breasts, areolas, and nipples, you should at least consider having a consultation with a leading breast enhancement expert to see if the procedure can help you be more satisfied with your body.

If, for example, choosing a new push-up bra still doesn’t give the perky look you want, you may want to think about a breast lift.

Are Your Nipples and Areolas Pointing Down?

Aesthetically pleasing breasts are generally those with nipples that point directly ahead. With sagging breasts, the nipples and areolas (the darker patches of skin surrounding the nipples) almost always point down toward the ground.

As you look in the mirror, do your nipples look back at you? If not, you might want to consider a breast lift, which will not only make your breasts sit higher on your chest, but also reposition the nipples.

Nipples Below the Crease

The position of the nipples doesn’t necessarily need to be straight down to consider a breast lift. If you can see your nipples sit below the natural crease formed between your breast and chest skin, a breast lift can pull the nipples higher into a prouder, more assertive position.

Loose Breasts

If your breasts swing significantly when you work out or when you don’t wear a bra, this could be due to stretching of the skin causing them to sit lower and move in relation to your body. A breast lift removes excess skin, reduces stretching, and pulls the breasts higher onto the chest, thus eliminating much of the movement experienced with saggy breasts.

The pain point to ask yourself when considering a breast lift is: Do I want one? If you are content with the way your breasts look, you likely do not need a breast lift. If, however, you wish more for your breasts and would like to see them sit higher and tighter on your chest, a breast lift could be for you.

If you also want your breasts to be larger, you may wish to consider a breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift.
