A breast lift, or mastopexy, can rejuvenate your breasts by lifting them to a more youthful placement and projection. Flat breasts, sagging breasts, or breasts that have lost volume and shape can all benefit from a breast lift, which will give you a more youthful-looking figure and silhouette.

In addition to lifting your breasts, a mastopexy can lift your confidence, too, as you find you look better in clothing, your shape is more balanced, and you have an overall rejuvenated appearance and demeanor.

Is a Breast Lift Right for You?

Dr. Julio Garcia, a Henderson plastic surgeon, will help you determine whether a breast lift is the right solution to make your figure look more harmonious, youthful and balanced. He brings an artist's eye to his procedures, as he has a degree in Art History as well as degrees and board-certification in plastic surgery. During your consultation, he will ask you questions about how you feel about your breasts, what you want them to look like, how active your lifestyle is, and whether you have finished your family or not.

Many women begin to desire a breast lift after nursing or pregnancy – or simply to combat aging. Even women who have taken excellent care of their bodies may be losing the battle to gravity and feel they need a rejuvenation. Some of the more common reasons for wanting a breast lift are:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Depleted breasts (lost volume)
  • Breasts that are not at the same level

If you have not yet completed your family and are still hoping to become pregnant, you will be advised to wait for your breast lift, as childbearing can undo the good results of your surgery.

The Benefits of a Breast Lift

The benefits of a breast lift can go beyond the merely physical. Because sagging or depleted breasts usually go hand-in-hand with the aging process, realizing that their breasts no longer look “young,” can make some women feel less confident and desirable. After a breast lift, some of the benefits women have reported include:

  • Feeling and looking more youthful
  • Feeling that clothes are more flattering
  • Increased confidence in their figures

The Right Look For You

During your consultation, Dr. Garcia will learn about your needs and desires. He will also take measurements of your body and evaluate your body shape. He will then recommend the right amount of lift that will make your breasts look more youthful while flattering the natural curves of your figure.

Should You Have a Breast Augmentation With Your Lift?

Often women present to Dr. Garcia desiring larger breasts, but all they really need is a breast lift. Because Dr. Garcia's main concern is your health, happiness, and a more beautiful, harmonious-looking figure, Dr. Garcia will recommend that you wait at least six months after breast lift surgery before deciding whether you still want a breast augmentation with breast implants. Most women are so happy with how much Dr. Garcia's breast lift has improved their figure and boosted their confidence that they opt not to have further surgery.

Preparing for a Breast Lift

To prepare for your breast lift, you should thoroughly research the procedure and meet with Dr. Garcia to get all of your questions answered. There should be no mystery involved with your breast surgery.

During your consultation with Dr. Garcia, be prepared to discuss your reasons for seeking a breast lift and what you expect to achieve through the procedure. Understanding your motivations for surgery and setting realistic expectations for your results will ensure that you are satisfied with your surgical outcome.
