The Baby Boomer Breast Lift


Posted February 28, 2020 in Breast Lift

For previous generations, reaching middle age was not guaranteed. But thanks to advances in medicine and science, people are now living longer than ever before.

Baby Boomer women are entering middle age feeling better than ever—and want to look as good on the outside as well. Procedures like a breast lift can be all they need to look vibrant again.

In this exciting world that is filled with seemingly endless possibilities, women now have a strong focus on wellness and a fresh new attitude towards maintaining a youthful appearance.

Plastic surgery, which was once considered taboo, has now become an increasingly popular way for Baby Boomers to improve their appearances. 

Procedures like BOTOX® Cosmetic, facelift surgery, and breast lift surgery are swiftly growing among this segment of women who are now living longer—and more fabulously—than ever. 

The breast lift, in particular, is a great way for Baby Boomers to rejuvenate their figures without looking like they have had “work done.” 

Why Choose a Breast Lift? 

  • It makes breasts look fuller—without the need for further augmentation.
  • It lifts and tightens sagging breast tissue. 
  • It helps to re-shape and tighten the breasts for a naturally youthful appearance. 

Breast Lift Vs. Breast Implants

While a breast lift can make the breasts look fuller, it does not actually increase breast size. Only an implant or another method (such as fat transfer) can do that. 

A breast lift primarily focuses on lifting and tightening tissue that has loosened and started to sag. Breast lift surgery is ideal for Baby Boomer women who are struggling with the natural effects of time and have thinner, more delicate skin. 

Breast augmentation and breast lift procedures can be combined in some instances for an optimal outcome. 

Is Breast Augmentation Enough?

Thinner skin or lesser amounts of breast tissue may affect your breast implant appearance by creating “rippling,” wrinkling, or visible edges. 

A breast lift avoids this issue by simply using the breast tissue that is available to create optimum firmness and shape. 

Breast lift surgery essentially creates a younger and firmer breast contour without needing to add anything to the breasts. 

What Can a Breast Lift Do For Aging Skin?

One of the great things about a breast lift is that the procedure specifically targets and corrects concerns that often happen with aging, such as: 

  • Looser breast tissue due to loss of collagen and elastin
  • Breasts that sit lower than they used to
  • Sagging or drooping tissue from weight fluctuations
  • Stretching from childbirth or breastfeeding

By removing the excess skin and manipulating the underlying glandular tissue, breasts are tightened, re-shaped, and lifted for a bustline that is more youthful and uplifted. 

What Can I Expect From My Breast Lift?

A breast lift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure over a few hours. 

The surgery involves incisions that allow your surgeon to reposition the existing tissue and remove compromised skin for a perkier, more youthful bust.

There are several breast lift methods available. The best one for you will depend on your own unique body shape and cosmetic concerns. 

Recovery can take several weeks, but results are long lasting.
