A breast lift is usually done to perk up the breasts typically after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast lifting with or without implants can accomplish a more youthful appearance to the breasts. Significant weight loss can also decrease breast volume and a lift can help restore a more proportional, youthful breast shape by removing excess skin. Oftentimes women are unsure if they need breast lifting. If the nipple/areola sits below the crease under the breast it may indicate a lift is in order. This may not give you a fuller breast however. If you are unhappy with your breast size when wearing a bra, an implant along with the lift may be necessary. Asymmetrical or unusually shaped breasts can also be helped by breast lifting.
