How Long Does a Breast Lift Last?
How long your breast lift will last depends on many factors. You can expect results to last at least several years. Some people will choose to have a second procedure, while others may remain happy with their initial results as they age.
You can affect how long your breast lift will last by following some general recommendations:
Skin elasticity is genetic, but you can keep your skin more elastic and prevent sagging by avoiding sun exposure and using appropriate skincare products.
If you wear poorly fitted support or no support at all, gravity will begin to undo the work of your breast lift. You can maintain your results by wearing a supportive bra, especially when exercising.
Significant weight changes will affect your breast lift results. Weight gain may make your breasts heavier and change their shape, while weight loss can take away breast volume and cause sagging.
Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift?
What if you have drooping skin and volume loss? Dr. Holley frequently performs breast augmentation with a breast lift to improve breast size, shape, and position. If you have significant loose skin, a lift may be required to see your desired results with breast augmentation. He may also perform a breast lift with a breast reduction to help lift and reshape the breasts.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift?
You may be a good breast lift candidate if you have no major health problems, do not smoke, and are close to your target weight. If you have sagging skin and want firmer, more lifted breasts, this procedure might make a good choice for you.
