Will a Breast Lift Change My Cup Size?

Breast lift surgery can restore a firm, contoured, and perky appearance to the chest, but may do so at the expense of a slight amount of volume. A recent study conducted on 20 women who had undergone breast lift surgery found that a decrease in one bra size was common following the procedure. This study followed participants for five years and took into account factors such as weight fluctuations that can also decrease cup size. All participants stayed with the same bra manufacturer during the course of the study to help ensure consistency.

Will breast lift decrease your bra size? It is entirely possible. However, this decrease may be due to a number of factors including the removal of sagging skin, and be necessary for optimal sculpting. If you are concerned about volume loss following breast lift surgery, Dr. Roberta Gartside would be happy to discuss options such as mastopexy with breast implants that can improve symmetry, increase size, and restore lift at the same time.
