What makes an ideal breast lift candidate?

A breast lift is the most effective treatment for raising and firming the breasts without increasing the cup size, resulting in a new and vastly improved upper-body contour. But it must be pointed out that a procedure of this nature is not suitable for everyone – and not everyone who approaches us will be automatically given one. Here’s a checklist that may be of some help:

Ideal breast lift candidate: you are physically healthy and are maintaining a stable weight

Because dramatic weight fluctuations – in either direction – can affect the appearance of your breasts after breast lift surgery, the procedure is best suited to clients who have maintained a relatively stable weight for a period of time.

Ideal breast lift candidate: you’ve been nicotine-free for at least a month

Because a breast lift procedure temporarily compromises the blood supply to the skin, the danger of nicotine constricting that blood supply further considerably raises the danger of post-procedure health issues. You’ll also need to be nicotine-free for at least one month before and after surgery.

Ideal breast lift candidate: your breasts are sagging, or have lost shape and volume

As we age, we start to lose elasticity in the skin – which can be exacerbated by other factors such as smoking, fluctuations in weight, and plain old gravity.

Ideal breast lift candidate: your nipples and areolas point downward

This is a key symptom of breast ptosis – a natural consequence of ageing which can be hurried along by other factors such as smoking, over-vigorous exercising and pregnancy (but not breastfeeding).

Ideal breast lift candidate: you have stretched skin

Stretched skin is a natural consequence of ageing and being well-developed – either naturally or through pregnancy and weight gain.

Ideal breast lift candidate: one breast is lower than the other

As our bodies go through puberty, the rapid growth spurts we go through can affect one breast more than another – although this usually balances itself out over time. If one breast has suddenly grown larger than the other, get it checked out by your GP immediately.
