Breast Lift Q & A
Can I benefit from a breast lift?
Many factors beyond your control can cause the breasts to stretch and sag. Whether you’re looking to augment the breasts or simply reposition them higher on the body, you might benefit from a breast lift if:
- Pregnancy or breastfeeding has changed the shape of your breasts
- You’ve lost weight, and this has caused stretch marks or sagging in the breast area
- Genetics or age have left you with breasts that cause back or neck pain
- You are satisfied with the size of your breasts but want them positioned higher on the body
- Your breasts are unusually shaped or aren’t symmetrical
- Your nipples point downward
What techniques are used to lift the breasts?
Dr. Obasi uses various techniques to remove excess skin, tighten underlying support structures, and position the breasts, nipples, and areolas attractively. After evaluating your physiology and understanding your aesthetic goals, he may recommend:
- Crescent lift: A small incision around the top half of the areolas to correct drooping
- Donut lift: For mild to moderate lifting with a single, unobtrusive scar
- Lollipop lift: A technique that corrects moderate drooping and restores breast contours
- Anchor lift: The preferred option for when you have significant sagging
How can I maintain my results?
While you should see immediate results, you’ll also experience some swelling and scarring. This subsides over a few weeks, and your breasts will quickly settle into their new positions.
Since none of us can escape gravity, your breasts may start to sag again over time, but you can maintain your results by taking good care of yourself after the procedure and following the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Obasi. Results also last longer if you maintain your weight because weight is gained and lost easily in the breasts, which can affect their position and size.
