A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a popular procedure done for women aiming to achieve a more youthful shape. Following childbirth and breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging, many women find that their breasts have lost volume and tend to droop. A breast lift can help to restore the breasts to a perkier position for more feminine proportions. Read on to learn more about what to expect following your breast lift and how to prolong results.

How long will breast lift results last?

Overall, result longevity will depend on a number of factors such as age, genetics, health, and dietary habits. Also, women who become pregnant after a breast lift may notice that their results are negatively impacted. However, there are a few things that can be done to prolong your results.

How to prolong results

The first step to prolonging your breast lift results is to take care of your skin. Good skin elasticity is key to prevent sagginess. Avoiding prolonged sun exposure and taking natural supplements such as vitamins C and E can also help to improve skin elasticity.

Next, avoid dramatic weight fluctuations, as it can also have negative effects on breast lift results. Maintaining your weight can help to ensure long-lasting results.

Finally, wear a well-fitting bra. The right support is important in keeping your breasts in a perky, youthful position. If you are not sure what bra size you are, visit a store that offers bra-size fittings to find your right size.
