During this meeting, your surgeon will evaluate your anatomy, the quality of your breast tissue elasticity, and the fullness of your breasts. These factors will influence the technique that is recommended for restoring your breast appearance.

When You Should Consider a Lift

A breast lift is considered when you have a pleasing breast size but have begun to experience laxity.
