Reasons to Avoid or Postpone Breast Lift
Breast lift surgery with Dr. Ary Krau has helped thousands of women enjoy a better breast position and shape, and an overall more attractive bust. But the surgery is not right for everyone. According to Dr. Krau, who has been performing the surgery for more than 20 years, there are a few reasons why some women need to put off surgery (or avoid it altogether). Learn more in this month’s blog post.
Smoking raises the risks of the operation and impairs the healing process. It may even affect the final result. Women that smoke are required to quit several weeks prior to and after surgery. If you are not able to quit smoking, you must postpone surgery until you can. Some smokers must work with their primary care physician to formulate a smoking cessation plan before undergoing plastic surgery.
You Plan to Become Pregnant in the Future
Pregnancy and breastfeeding stretch out the breast skin and tissue, and may in turn cancel out the effects of breast lift surgery. If there is a chance you will become pregnant and breastfeed in the future, it’s best to postpone surgery until you know you are finished having children.
You Expect Perfection
Breast lift results are certainly impressive, but they are never perfect. Any surgeon that tells you otherwise is not to be trusted. It’s important that you understand what is reasonable to expect after surgery by speaking honestly with Dr. Krau. If you desire the perfect breast shape and position without any scarring, you should avoid having breast lift.
You Want to Impress Someone Else
No relationship or friendship should hinge on your appearance (particularly, your breast appearance). If you want surgery to satisfy someone other than yourself, you are not a good candidate. The decision to undergo breast lift should be yours and yours alone.
You Want Smaller (or Larger) Breasts
Breast lift improves the position of the breasts but it doesn’t dramatically affect the size of the breasts. If you desire larger or smaller breasts, breast lift alone won’t suffice. Ask Dr. Krau about combining breast lift with implants or with breast reduction.
