As you age, your body undergoes certain changes. Factors such as changes in your weight, pregnancy, and gravity can all impact your breasts, causing them to sag and lose volume. If you are experiencing these issues, you are not alone. Fortunately, you can restore a youthful, perky breast appearance with a breast lift.

There are several different procedures that can help you improve the appearance of your breasts. The best way to determine if a breast lift is the ideal solution to address your unique aesthetic goals is to speak with Dr. Roberta Gartside in person. Please call (888) 730-4113 today to schedule a consultation. We have offices conveniently located in Reston and McLean, Virginia.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a surgical procedure performed to reshape your breasts and restore a more youthful appearance. This is accomplished by reshaping the skin and breast mound in order to improve firmness and achieve a more attractive breast contour. Your nipple will also be repositioned to a higher place on the breast for a perkier appearance.

In some instances, Dr. Gartside may recommend a breast lift with breast implants for enhanced results. This is typically an effective option if you would like to increase the size of your breasts and address sagging issues.

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is performed primarily to address sagging issues, which are often caused by:

  • Pregnancy and breast feeding
  • Weight loss
  • Large breast size
  • The aging process

In addition, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure. If you are a smoker, you must be prepared to quit throughout the duration of your breast lift procedure, from the planning phase through your recovery, in order to ensure proper healing and the exceptional results you desire.

Keep in mind that a breast lift isn’t performed to increase the size of your breasts. If this is your primary goal, then you may want to consider breast augmentation.
