Am I a suitable candidate for breast uplift (mastopexy) surgery?

Breast lift surgery, also known as Mastopexy, is an operation which lifts and reshapes the breasts using various techniques to rejuvenate the look of low-hanging, ‘empty’ breasts. Lifting the breasts also lifts self-confidence.

Women consider their breasts to be a major part of their identity. The development of limp, sagging breasts is a loss of femininity. A surgical uplift (mastopexy), sometimes combined with a restoration of volume with implants or fat grafting (lipofilling) provides an immediate solution to restoring youthful firm breasts.

Here are the things to keep in mind to make sure that you a good candidate:

+ You should be in good enough overall health to undergo a surgical procedure. Diabetes and obesity, for example, may delay healing.
+ You must acknowledge the risks and side effects that might happen after the procedure as for instance slow healing and scars that take time to settle.
+ Have logical and reasonable expectations for the results of the surgery.
+ Be ready and able to follow all post-surgical instructions provided by your surgeon.
+ You should be in good mental health to enable you to make up a decision on whether you are able to do the surgery or not.
+ Smoking is is a considerable risk of healing.
