What are the medical benefits of a breast lift?

While a breast lift is considered a cosmetic procedure, there are emotional and physical benefits that make it a great choice for some patients. 

A breast lift is intended to lift up sagging breasts. A woman’s body may go through many changes throughout her life such as weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, and medical conditions. 

So, what are these benefits?

Improved Posture 

Sagging breasts can cause women to have bad posture as they lean forward due to the weight and position of the sagging breasts. Posture can be corrected by redistributing the weight of the breasts.

Better Self-Esteem

The improved appearance that a breast lift allows for more confidence in your skin. Instead of hiding their body, patients often report feeling more comfortable and confident wearing bathing suits and more revealing clothing. 

Greater Mobility

Drooping breasts can make everyday life a lot more difficult. Movements such as bending down or going for a run may feel uncomfortable while dealing with sagging breasts. A breast lift allows you to get back to the activities you used to enjoy whether it is exercising or going to the grocery store.

Reduced Skin Irritation

Sometimes sagging breasts can rub up against the ribcage and cause chafing underneath the breasts. This irritated skin may not be able to heal properly due to the constant chafing. A breast lift can relieve the skin from this friction.
