How Long Will a Breast Lift Last?
January 7, 2011
Several factors can impact the perkiness and lift of your breasts. Weight gain, pregnancy, age, and genetics all play a role in determining how long your breast lift will last. However, new methods in breast lift surgery can help extend your results, and many women find their breast lifts last for several years.
How to Extend the Life of Your Breast Lift
Experienced Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Newman utilizes the latest methods to reshape and support your breasts during a breast lift. Alone, this can produce incredible results, but to maintain a youthful, perky appearance, simple lifestyle adjustments may be required.
It is important to provide your breasts with adequate support, especially when engaging in physical activities. Wearing a sports bra for exercise and a supportive bra on a daily basis will help lengthen the results of your breast lift.
Making sure you lead a healthy lifestyle can also impact the longevity of your procedure. Avoiding fattening foods and unhealthy activities like smoking can keep excess weight and other factors from impacting your breast lift.
Pregnancy can cause fluctuations in breast size. Women who plan on becoming pregnant may wish to wait until after their child is born to consider a breast lift. Breast lifts can be combined with other cosmetic procedures after the birth of your child to help restore your pre-pregnancy body.
