Many women experience changes in their breasts due to aging, gravity, pregnancy or weight loss. The breasts may lose their youthful shape, firmness, volume, position and begin to sag and droop.
Women then desire to change the size and or shape of their breasts to create more youthful breasts that they have dreamed of, enhancing their confidence, beauty and sexuality.

What to expect after surgery: with some breast procedures you can go home several hours after surgery. Moderate pain is typical for the first few days and is easily controlled by medications. Bruising is unusual and swelling will be moderate for the first week but rapidly disappears. For the first three weeks breasts sit high on the chest. They will gradually settle into a natural position and contour. Depending on your breast procedure many everyday activities may be resumed in the first week and most by the third or fourth week.
After breast lift surgery you will find that clothes fit better, you will have a more balanced, youthful and beautifully proportioned overall body creating more confidence and self-esteem.
