Illustrations of a woman’s breast, pre- and post-breast lift surgeryFor many women, their breasts are part of their feminine identities, an inseparable ingredient of what makes them who they are as women. From the time they reach puberty well into adulthood, they know their breasts as well as they know any part of their body. At times, they can be a source of pride and empowerment; at other times, a source of frustration and self-consciousness. Whatever the case, their breasts are uniquely their own - that is, until one day, they begin to sag. Then, they become somewhat less recognizable.

Some women may consider this simply another part of their journey, and that is perfectly fine. For those who are dissatisfied with such a change, however, plastic surgery offers a solution in the form of breast lift surgery. Breast lift allows women whose breasts have begun to droop to restore their breasts to a more youthful position on their chests. When the procedure is performed by an experienced, skilled plastic surgeon such as Stephen P. Hardy, M.D., patients emerge from breast lift looking younger, trimmer, shapelier, and sexier than ever before.

One of the greatest benefits of breast lift surgery is its exceptional safety profile. Nevertheless, it is a major surgical procedure and therefore not every patient will necessarily be a good candidate for it. Dr. Hardy places nothing above the safety of his patients. He meticulously evaluates potential breast lift candidates at his Missoula, MT plastic surgery practice to ensure that they can safely undergo the procedure before they commit to it. This is essential not only to their safety, but also to their ultimate satisfaction with their results.

Are you a good candidate for breast lift surgery? We invite you to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Hardy at Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC today to find out for yourself.

Candidacy for Breast Lift Surgery

There are several techniques available for performing breast lift surgery. You may be a better candidate for certain techniques than others, while you may not be a good candidate for some techniques whatsoever. Part of determining your candidacy for breast lift surgery will entail matching you with precisely the right breast lift technique, something that Dr. Hardy is especially skilled at doing.

In general, in order to be considered a good candidate for breast lift surgery, you must:

  • Be sufficiently healthy to undergo a major surgical procedure, free from conditions that would interfere with your ability to heal from surgery.
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure.
  • Understand the risks and side effects that are associated with the procedure, including some degree of scarring.
  • Be at or near the optimal weight for your height, as breast lift is not a weight loss procedure.
  • Be willing and able to follow all post-surgical instructions provided to you by Dr. Hardy to the absolute letter.
