While much focus has been placed on breast implants in recent years, another surgical procedure known as a breast lift has also been shown to improve a woman’s appearance and boost her confidence. Whether performed alone or in conjunction with breast augmentation or breast reduction, this procedure can restore a woman’s youthful body contour and even provide renewed fullness and cleavage to the breast area. If you are looking for a way to boost your self-confidence level, read on to find out what a breast lift can do for you.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure that restores drooping breasts to their original position. Breasts begin to sag due to pregnancy, nursing and the natural aging process. The result can be a body contour that looks older and more tired than you might actually feel. The lift procedure raises breasts to their youthful position on the chest, producing a fuller, perkier contour to the body torso.

Breast lifts are typically performed on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. During the procedure, breasts are repositioned and excess skin is removed. The nipple and areola may also be repositioned to provide a natural look to the breast.

Signs of Age

Breasts that have become deflated and begin to sag are often a reminder to women of the passing of years. These breasts often lose their youthful fullness and firmness, leading to self-consciousness and an avoidance of body-revealing clothing like low-cut dresses, tank tops and bathing suits. While changes to the breast may be a natural part of the aging process, some women feel like the end result of sagging, drooping breasts is anything but “natural.”

Regaining Youth and Confidence

A breast lift can help to address those issues, by providing a renewed positioning of the breasts. For some women, the lift procedure alone may even restore breast fullness, making them feel sexier and more feminine in their clothing. Other women may find combining the breast lift procedure with implants may help to produce the upper body contour they are hoping for. Some may even find that breast reduction will offer them a more proportionate body shape, particularly if drooping has been due in part to large, heavy breasts that have cause other uncomfortable symptoms as well.

The truth is that when we are satisfied with our appearance, we naturally increase our self-confidence level. If your breasts are getting in the way of your body image, perhaps a breast lift will restore your body profile as well as your confidence.
