Breast lift is an excellent cosmetic surgery option for women who are bothered by heavily sagging breasts. The procedure is particularly sought by moms who want to restore their pre-pregnancy breast appearance, whether independently or as a part of a mommy makeover surgery.
Dr. Farah Naz Khan is a board certified female plastic surgeon providing breast lift and various other procedures. During the initial consultation, Dr. Khan will determine the candidacy of a patient. She provides breast lifts to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Breasts may tend to lose volume and elasticity due to aging, pregnancy, significant weight loss, and other factors. Breast lift cosmetic surgery, clinically known as mastopexy, can reverse the appearance of sagging breasts and make them appear firmer, perkier, and more youthful. The procedure can substantially improve a woman’s quality of life, but it may not be appropriate for everyone.
An ideal candidate will be a woman who is in overall fantastic health and seeking a solution to sagging breasts. She should clear aesthetic goals and realistic expectations about the results of breast lift surgery. While breast lift can be performed on any breast size, the best benefits are usually achieved by women with smaller breasts.
In general, a breast lift candidate should:
- Be above the age of 18
- Have a need to restore the appearance of breasts, which currently appear droopy with or without nipples pointing downwards
- Be in sound physical health and have emotional stability
- Not be pregnant or nursing
- Not having any foreseeable plans of pregnancy
- Have stable body weight and have no plans to undergo a major weight loss

Breast Lift Following Pregnancy
Drooping breasts may commonly occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Therefore, a lot of women start considering a breast lift after they have children. The surgeon will usually recommend a candidate to postpone breast lift until after she has finished having children.
While the procedure does not hamper future pregnancies, it could impact the results of breast lift and cause the skin to stretch further. If the candidate has waited until she has finished having children, she is likely to enjoy the benefits of a breast lift for a longer period.
Breast Lift following Major Weight Loss
Major weight loss can have a dramatically positive impact on a woman’s life and aesthetic appearance. However, one of the undesirable fallouts of massive weight loss can be excessively loose skin, which can cause the breasts to droop. Once the woman has achieved her weight loss goals, and the body weight has stabilized, she can choose a breast lift surgery to restore the shape and firmness of breasts.
Candidates should note that breast lift is different from breast implants and breast reduction. In many cases, the procedure may be combined with breast implant surgery for more comprehensive outcomes. However, it is not a substitute for implant surgery.
