Breast lifts are increasingly becoming a more popular choice than breast implants, giving women the confidence of firmer, more youthful-looking breasts. However, a common question we receive at Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute is, “Will a breast lift reduce my cup size?”
The short answer is yes, and we’ll explain why here.
Cup Size Reduction After a Breast Lift
Most breasts lose one full cup size after a lift. It can feel counterintuitive to your goal of enhancing your breast appearance. However, it’s a natural effect of removing sagging skin.
Excess skin makes it hard to find a bra that fits properly. You might wear a bra that’s too big in order to compensate. After surgery, most women will purchase bras one cup smaller.
If you add implants, you might be able to use the same bra or even a larger one after your breast lift. This is a great way to achieve your ideal breast position and breast size at once.
Can You Do a Breast Lift and Augmentation Together
Yes, we can simultaneously lift your breasts and make them larger in the same procedure. Doing so is an excellent option if you’re unhappy with how small your breasts currently are.
If you’d prefer to wait to see how you look with your breast lift before having an augmentation, it’s safe to wait. Then, at a later time, we can add implants while still maintaining the lift from your previous surgery. However, a combination approach can be cheaper and more convenient.
Benefits of a Breast Lift
Breast sagging is an inevitable part of aging. However, a breast lift allows you to take control and look more youthful by doing the following:
- Raising your breasts to a higher position
- Tightening the breast tissue for a smoother appearance
- Firming your breasts and giving them an attractive contour
