When Is the Right Time to Get a Breast Lift?

Several factors contribute to sagging breasts, including significant weight loss or gain, pregnancy, nursing, and the natural aging process. Since women experience these moments at different points in their lives, it is safe to say that timing is unique for each woman; there isn’t one “perfect” time. To help determine if you are ready for a breast lift, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are my nipples pointing downward?
  • Do my breasts lack firmness?
  • Are my nipples/areolas positioned on a part of my breast that hangs below the breast crease?
  • Am I unhappy with my breast size while wearing a bra?
  • Are my breasts asymmetrical or unusually shaped?

If you answered yes to any of the following questions, a breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination of both (breast lift with implants) may be in your best interest. These procedures are designed to successfully rejuvenate your figure by restoring the original youthful shape and firmness to your breasts.

More key components to consider as you decide when to get a breast lift are events that would take place during your breast lift recovery. The time it takes to recover from a breast lift varies for each patient, so Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani recommends leaving enough time to completely heal before attending any large events such as weddings, vacations, strenuous activities, etc. He also encourages women who are not yet at their goal weight or who are planning to have more children to complete these milestones before considering a breast lift.
