Women seek breast lift surgery to reshape and elevate breasts that sag due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or gravity. When breast tissue loses its elasticity and firmness, breasts droop and may appear deflated. Some breast lift patients are content with the size of their breasts, while others want to combine augmentation with their lift. In both cases, breast lift before and after photos demonstrate the beautiful results that can be achieved.
What Is a Breast Lift?
During a breast lift, Dr. Mosher or Dr. Schlagintweit removes excess skin and tissue and may reduce the size of the areolae. Breast lift surgery focuses on improving the shape and position of the breasts but not increasing their size. Combining a breast lift with implants is a popular option for patients who want fuller, shapelier breasts and are bothered by sagging and skin laxity.
Patients often ask if they can get breast implants without needing a breast lift. If you have minimal sagging, that is certainly possible. However, implants add volume and can cause the breasts to sag even more if the skin and tissue have lost their elasticity and firmness.
Breast Lift Before and After Photos
This post includes before and after photos of real YES Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery patients who combined breast implants with a breast lift and those who had a breast lift without implants. Reviewing before and after photos can help you choose your desired path and give you realistic expectations about your potential results.
In the “before” photos, you may see breasts that appear saggy, with the nipples pointing downward. Following the breast lift procedure, the “after” photos typically show breasts that are higher, firmer, and more youthful. The areolas may be repositioned and resized to match the new breast contour.
This patient was 36 at the time of the procedure and the mother of 3 children. She was satisfied with the size of her breasts but wanted to improve their shape and position.
