Each year, millions of women undergo breast augmentation with a breast lift. In this surgical procedure, they are able to add volume to their breasts while repositioning breasts higher on their chests for more balanced contours. It is a very popular procedure, especially for older women and mothers who have experienced changes in their breasts due to pregnancy.
Breast’augmentation with lift offers obvious physical results by changing the shape of a woman’s body, but it also offers mental health benefits. Studies have found that for many women, breast augmentation with lift leads to an increase in self-esteem and self-confidence.
One reason for an increase in self-esteem may be due to how a breast lift can make you look younger. Breasts begin to hang lower as you age because of the effects of gravity and less elastic tissues. Changes in the breasts related to pregnancy can also cause them to hang lower postpartum. Because older women tend to have lower hanging breasts, they are associated with old age.
But a breast lift moves the breasts higher to where they were–or where you wish they were–when you were younger. This makes your profile look younger and more energetic than before.
Another reason breast augmentation with lift may raise your self-esteem is because it can be an opportunity to balance your proportions. If you have a pear shape, with large round hips, you may want to balance that out with larger breasts. The balance can help clothes fit better and look more attractive.
The image you have of yourself in your head, your self-image, is vital to your self-esteem. When you have positive feelings about your outward appearance, that helps you feel better about yourself and your life every day. But when the image in your head doesn’t match your reflection, you might feel negative.
Many women who have breast implants feel more sexually attractive, which can boost their confidence. It may be that their self-image changes to reflect the sexuality they feel inside, so they feel more comfortable in romantic situations.
While breast augmentation with lift can definitely lift your self-esteem, too, it only has these benefits if you undergo surgery for the right reasons. If you are experiencing mental illness like depression or body dysmorphia, breast implants are not the right solution for boosting your confidence. It is important that before you undergo surgery you understand why you want to change the appearance of your breasts and have realistic expectations of your appearance after your procedure.
