How Long Will My Breast Lift Last?
If you are considering a breast lift, you probably have legitimate concerns about how long the results from your surgery will last. The longevity of breast lift results typically depends upon a number of different factors, which can vary from patient to patient.
Ultimately, most patients seek out a breast lift because the connective tissues in their breasts have already begun to weaken and stretch, causing breast ptosis (sagging). Pregnancy, aging, and weight loss can all contribute to ptosis, and these things will continue to affect your breasts even after surgery is performed. However, a breast lift can significantly improve the look of your breasts for years, mitigating and interrupting the effects of ptosis by lifting sagging tissues and removing excess skin.
A few of the most significant factors that can affect the longevity of your breast lift results include:
- Your breast size
- Your skin’s elasticity
- Diet and lifestyle (sun exposure, use of a bra, weight gain and loss, etc)
- The techniques used by your plastic surgeon
Women with larger breasts may want to combine their breast lift with a breast reduction to address the excess weight that is causing their breasts to droop. By bringing your breasts back to a more proportionate size and volume, you can improve their overall look while at the same time relieving them of the strain that can compromise your breast lift results.
