Will a Breast Lift Decrease My Bra Cup Size?

breast lift can be a fantastic way to rejuvenate your figure. The procedure removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue that is drooping. As a result, your breasts will be more shapely, youthful, and uplifted. But will they be smaller, too? Keep reading to learn the answer.

Breast Lift Surgery and Cup Size Changes Explained 

Many women do end up wearing a smaller bra after undergoing breast lift surgery. A study in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that breast lift patients went down an average of one bra cup size from the same brand. However, this does not reflect a true reduction in breast size.

Instead, it has more to do with patient comfort and wearing the correct bra fit. Women with sagging breasts may find that a loose bra better accommodates excess skin and feels more comfortable. As a result, they often shop for a cup size that is larger than their true cup size.

After breast lift surgery, women no longer have to worry about excess skin and breast sagging. A smaller bra cup size will be closer to their actual cup size and offer a more comfortable fit.

Combining Your Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation 

Breast lift surgery alone can offer great results for women who are only concerned with elevating the position of their breasts and nipples for a perkier look. For these women, the change in bra cup size is not a bad thing. It can even allow them to shop for different styles.

However, if any loss of breast volume sounds undesirable to you, there is a way to prevent it. Breast implants can be used to maintain or increase your breast size for results that you love. In fact, many women combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation to achieve their goals.
