There are many misconceptions about breast lift surgery. And that makes it difficult for patients to figure out if the procedure can achieve their desired results. Here we debunk three common breast lift myths so you can see if it might meet your expectations.
Myth #1: All Breast Lift Procedures Are the Same
Breast lift surgery is not one-size-fits-all. It’s the farthest thing from it. A range of different techniques can be used to restore a youthful shape and appearance to your breasts.
Your procedure will be tailored to fit your unique needs. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Brucato will consider factors such as your degree of breast sagging, breast size and shape, areola size and position, and skin quality when creating your customized surgical plan.
Myth #2: A Breast Lift Will Make Your Breasts Larger
Breast lift surgery alone won’t increase your breast size. It’s designed to raise sagging breasts by removing and tightening excess tissue. After the procedure, your breasts will be higher and firmer — not bigger.
If large and full breasts are your goal, then you’ll need to combine your breast lift with breast augmentation. That way, you can address issues like sagging skin and drooping nipples while also adding attractive volume using implants.
Myth #3: You Can Fix Sagging Breasts with Exercise or Firming Creams
There’s no shortage of natural remedies for sagging breasts. Unfortunately, all of them are too good to be true.
Chest exercises, for example, build muscle — but they do little to reposition your breasts. You can’t firm up breast tissue or eliminate excess skin with physical activity. Topical options, such as skin firming creams, also fall short of creating a significant or lasting improvement.
Breast lift surgery works so well because it addresses breast shape, position, and symmetry. It is the most effective way to restore the elevated appearance of your breasts.
