What Problems Can a Breast Lift Solve?

breast-liftThe elasticity of skin on all parts of our body starts to wear out as we get older. Breasts are no exception and begin to droop:

  • After pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • During and right after menopause.
  • From the weight of large, heavy breasts.

A breast lift can bring your breasts up to an ideal position by repositioning the breast in the proper place on the chest. This procedure gives your breasts the supportive structures that they need to maintain a youthful appearance.

Do I Need a Breast Lift?

Knoxville women who are happy with the size of their breasts but not the position will benefit from a breast lift. The results of a breast lift will:

  • Position drooping or sagging breasts higher on the chest.
  • Tighten skin around your breast tissue.
  • Reposition nipples that are pointing “down” instead of “straight ahead”.

If you would like to change the size of your breasts then a breast augmentation (or reduction) is the procedure to consider.

Can I Combine Breast Augmentation or Reduction With a Breast Lift

A breast lift is often incorporated into an augmentation or reduction to give patients the best possible results. Oftentimes, Knoxville women who come in for mommy makeovers get combined breast procedures to restore their breasts after the birth of their children.

Women who are considering breast augmentation can see the degree of lift from different implants with 3D imaging during a consultation with Dr. Hall.
