February is when we celebrate all things love, such as Valentine’s Day. Showing your body some love is a great idea this time of year, especially since we have a little bit longer for winter to end and bring with it more light and warmth.

One way to recharge your mental batteries is to make changes that help you feel better about yourself, especially your appearance. If you are currently unhappy with your body, such as your breasts, getting plastic surgery can transform how you look and feel! For women wanting to look younger again, having their breasts lifted to overcome the “drooping” that tends to happen with age can make you fall in love with your body again.

Your breasts may lose their firm contours and elasticity for various reasons:

  • Aging
  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Fluctuating weight
  • Genetics
  • Gravity

Can a breast lift, also called mastopexy, help you look and feel more youthful again? This is the time to consider the following questions:

  • Am I uncomfortable or unhappy because my breasts are sagging?
  • Am I seeing a loss in my breast volume and firmness?
  • Am I seeing stretched skin around my breasts or stretch marks?
  • Do my breasts look “longer”?
  • Are my areolas (the dark area) around my nipples looking bigger?
  • Are my nipples pointing down instead of facing forward?
  • Do my breasts look uneven?

If your answers to these questions are yes, you may very well benefit from having plastic surgery to both rejuvenate your breasts and bring back your youthful appearance. That’s because other body-enhancing strategies like dieting and exercising cannot give you your breasts back. The only way to turn back time and those undesirable bodily changes is by having an expertly done breast lift by our plastic surgeon.

A breast lift can give you the anti-aging boost you need to feel more body positive and self-confident by doing the following:

  • Lifting your breasts or nipples higher on your chest
  • Making your areolas smaller
  • Tightening any loose skin around the breast
  • Reshaping your breast for a more rounded look

Breast Lift Candidacy

After considering how a breast lift might help you feel your best again, the next step is to evaluate your candidacy for the procedure. This means setting up a consultation with our oral surgeon so we can assess whether you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery. We will take into consideration the following:

  • Your goals and expectations.
  • Your medical history (health issues, allergies, prior surgeries).
  • A family history of breast cancer.
  • You are in good physical health, so your body can heal.
  • You do not smoke (or will stop before you have your surgery) because it can impede your recovery process.

Plastic Surgery Consultation

Since a breast lift alone doesn’t increase your breast size, you might consider combining it with another surgery to increase your breast size, reduce it, or even place breast implants for enhanced fullness. Our plastic surgeon is more than happy to discuss these options during your consultation. There’s no better time to show yourself some love by boosting your appearance surgically for a more fulfilling year ahead.
