Breast Lift Candidacy

A breast lift can be the best remedy for breasts that are sagging from age, motherhood, or extreme weight loss. Gravity can take its toll on the youthful positioning of your breasts and leave you longing for younger days. A breast lift (mastopexy) can restore your breasts' youthful appearance and make you feel more confident and comfortable with your body.

Are You a Good Breast Lift Candidate?

Meeting with Fort Myers cosmetic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña is the best way to determine if a breast lift is right for you, but in general, you are a good candidate for a breast lift if you:

  • Are bothered by sagging, drooping breasts
  • Are close to your ideal weight
  • Are in good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations for your results

During your consultation with Dr. Peña, you will discuss whether you are an ideal candidate based on these and other factors. If you are troubled by the look of your breasts for any of the following reasons, a breast lift may be the right procedure to achieve your aesthetic goals:

  • Nipples that point down
  • Nipples that hang below your breast crease
  • Stretched skin or enlarged areolas
  • Flat or elongated breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts

If you are a good candidate for a breast lift, Dr. Peña will talk with you about what kind of results you can expect from the procedure.

Seeing Your Results Before Surgery

At our cosmetic surgery facility, we will use Vectra 3D imaging to take images of your body. With specialized computer software, Dr. Peña can manipulate your images to show you what your likely results from the procedure will be.

He may recommend that you also consider breast augmentation with your breast lift if you are seeking fuller, larger breasts. A breast lift cannot make your breasts larger. A breast lift changes the position of your breasts, so they may appear larger, depending on your body, but a breast lift will not actually enlarge them.

During your breast lift procedure, Dr. Peña will remove the excess skin and fat that are causing your breasts to sag. Your results should be symmetrical, uplifted breasts that have a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
