Some key reasons include age, hormonal fluctuations, weight loss, pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight gain, or genetics; but there’s a simple and effective way to address changes in breast shape and firmness.
A breast lift is a type of cosmetic surgery that can restore perkiness and firmness to drooping or sagging breasts. As opposed to breast augmentations, breast lifts do not change the size of your breasts, but rather restore them to their previous condition from when you were younger, by removing excess skin and tightening the area.
As you age, your breasts lose the firmness they once had, causing them to sag. Part of this is due to the natural aging process. The number of pregnancies you’ve had, breastfeeding or hormonal fluctuations all contribute to drooping breasts. If you have started to notice that your breasts aren’t as perky and full as they once were, a breast lift is a great option to get them back to their former glory.
When you are not satisfied with the way your body looks, it can wreak havoc on your self-esteem. Correcting the problem can give you renewed confidence in yourself and pride in your body. If your breasts are on the larger side, a breast lift can also help to make you more comfortable by reducing bounce and drag due to gravity. When you feel better about yourself and your appearance, you’ll often find that you feel happier in other areas of your life as well.

Dr. Michael J. Streitmann will consult with you to determine the appropriate breast lift technique based on:
Once the appropriate breast lift technique is selected, anesthesia will be administered before the incision, in order to reduce discomfort or pain. After the incisions are made, the underlying breast tissue will be lifted and reshaped to improve shape, contour, and fullness.
There are several techniques for performing breast lifts, and the right one for you will depend on your body and specific needs. Here are some of the most common types to prepare you for discussing your options with your cosmetic surgeon in Houston.
To start, you’ll be placed under general anesthesia for the duration of the procedure so that you won’t feel a thing. Typically, a breast lift takes about two hours to complete, and you’ll usually be able to go home the same day.
After your surgery, you’ll likely experience some soreness and bruising, which will typically heal within a week or two. Most patients can go back to work after the first week, presuming your job doesn’t require intense physical labor. You can manage any pain or discomfort with over-the-counter or prescription pain medications according to your doctor’s recommendations.
You should try to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least a month to allow your breasts time to heal. You may experience an increase or decrease in nipple sensation at first, but most patients report feeling back to normal within a month or two.
When the breast lift is complete, results will be immediately visible – and over time, swelling will lessen while the incision lines fade; giving you an opportunity to truly enjoy the satisfaction that comes along with having more raised, firm breasts.
