Will a Breast Lift Help Get Rid of Stretch Marks?

Many women who are considering breast surgery are concerned about stretch marks that may accompany deflated breasts. Although mastopexy can remove stretch marks or soften their impact, this outcome is not always guaranteed.

The aability of a breast lift to remove stretch marks depends on the stretch marks’ location and the technique your plastic surgeon employs. Those stretch marks that are located on the skin that will be removed during the lift will, of course, disappear.

It Depends

A breast lift usually removes stretch marks on the lower breast, since this skin is nearly always removed. However, it will not remove marks on the top or sides since this skin remains on the breast.

Combining a breast lift with implants can improve upper and lateral stretch marks since it tightens the skin. The augmentation places stretch on the breast skin, reducing the visibility of stretch marks.

Trying to Decide If You Need a Breast Lift?

Do you want to know if you’re a candidate for mastopexy? Dr. Pugash believes optimal candidates are physically healthy women who are nonsmokers and are at or near their stable weight.

Dr. Pugash finds that a breast lift with implants can help to resolve these undesirable cosmetic concerns:

  • Breasts that lack firmness or substance
  • Breasts that sag or have lost shape
  • Breasts that are pendulous or too heavy
  • Breasts that have lost elasticity due to weight loss or breastfeeding
  • Nipples below the breast crease that point down
  • Breasts that are flat or elongated
  • Stretched skin or enlarged areolas
  • One breast is lower than the other

If you struggle with one or more of these aesthetic problems and would like to enhance your breast size, you may wish to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pugash. He can advise you on whether breast lift surgery or a breast lift with implants is the right choice for your situation.

Dr. Pugash  advises the following patients not to undergo a breast lift: smokers, those who are not in good health, who plan to lose a significant amount of weight, or plan to have more children.
