Breast Lift Surgery: Separating Myths from Facts

by Dr Priya Bansal Female Plastic Surgeon

Breast lift surgery is a boon for women who want to make their sagging breasts more perkier and youthful. While there are several reasons why your breasts can start sagging, the only reasons to get a breast lift is when you feel it can boost your confidence and make you happy. Due to a lack of awareness, there are several myths and false information spread about breast lifts and plastic surgery.  Reading this blog will help you separate myths from facts and make an informed decision when it comes to a breast lift.

Myth 1: Breast lift creams and wearing a push-up bra give the same outcome as surgery

There’s intense marketing for breast lift creams and push-up bras to combat sagging breasts. Yet there’s no scientific proof to support these claims. Breast lift bras enhance the appearance of your breasts in a dress to give the illusion of a lift. While breast lift creams can give slight temporary firmness in your breasts due to their moisturising properties, it doesn’t address the root cause of sagging breasts: Excess skin and stretched breast tissue. The results from these breast lift hacks are not permanent. Only a breast lift surgery can give natural-looking long-lasting results


Myth 2:  Breast lift surgery will leave prominent scars

Scars are an inevitable part of any surgery where incisions are made. A breast lift surgery will give you scars but an experienced surgeon will make them less noticeable and help the surgical incision heal effectively so that the scars fade gradually and become barely perceptible with time.

Depending on your expectations and the surgeon’s expertise, different incision types can be chosen for a breast lift surgery. A skilled surgeon will hide the incisions around your nipple-areola complex or under the natural crease of your breast. When you follow the recovery instructions properly, the incision also heals without any infection risk or prominent scarring. The remaining scars typically fade over time and can be concealed with clothing or undergarments.

Myth 3: Breast lift surgery will change breast size

In a breast lift surgery, the excess skin and breast tissue are removed from your breasts and the remaining tissues are reshaped to give them a more perkier appearance. While the procedure can make your breasts appear more youthful, it can’t change their size or volume.

To increase the size of your breasts, you will have to get a breast augmentation surgery in Delhi with silicone implants or autologous fat grafting. If you have heavy breasts then a breast reduction surgery can help you get rid of excess skin and breast tissues.  Talk to your surgeon to get a personalised treatment plan based on your expectations.


Myth 4: Breast lift is only for women who have undergone pregnancy

While pregnancy and breastfeeding can contribute to breast sagging, they are not the only factors. Genetics, weight fluctuations, and ageing can also cause breasts to sag. Therefore, breast lift surgery is not limited to women who have undergone pregnancy. Any woman with sagging breasts can be a candidate for a breast lift procedure.


Myth 5: Results from breast lift surgery aren’t long-lasting

Breast lift surgery results are long lasting but factors like ageing, weight fluctuations, and gravity will continue to affect the breast tissue and skin over time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and avoiding smoking, can help slow down the natural aging process and help prolong the results of breast lift surgery. It's also essential to wear a supportive bra to minimise the effects of gravity on the breasts.

If you are tired of trying breast lift creams and other hacks that haven’t given you the right results, then you can book a consultation with a female plastic surgeon in Delhi to discuss the possibility of breast lift surgery and how it can benefit you.
