Advantages and Disadvantages of a Breast Lift

The Breast Lift is a common plastic surgery that may have a lot of benefits for patients with a lot of excess skin and saggy breasts. The Breast Lift will move the nipples' position, making the breasts look more aesthetic. In addition to the many advantages of a Breast Lift, there are also a few disadvantages.

Advantages of a Breast Lift

The Breast Lift surgery will have a lot of cosmetic advantages. The surgery will modify the appearance of the beasts and will make them:

  • Rounder
  • Firmer, by reducing a bit of excessive breast tissue
  • More symmetric, as the plastic surgeon will adjust the breasts, should there be an asymmetry

The nipple will be repositioned so that the breasts won't have a saggy look. The procedure may also be combined with other plastic surgery procedures, such as liposuction, a breast augmentation or a breast reduction.

Disadvantages of a Breast Lift

Following a Breast Lift surgery, the patient may not be able to breastfeed.

Another disadvantage of the Breast Lift surgery is the fact that this is a costly procedure that is rarely covered by insurance. The effects of a Breast Lift surgery may not be durable if the patient is older or experiences pregnancy or weight fluctuation after the procedure.
