Will a Breast Lift Reduce My Bra Size?

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons Serving Denver & Lone Tree, Colorado

Woman after a breast lift in Lone TreeMany women end up wearing a smaller bra cup size after having breast lift surgery. However, that doesn’t mean you should worry about this procedure making your breasts smaller. What happens is that a breast lift makes it easier and more comfortable to sport the correct bra fit.

Wearing Your True Cup Size After Mastopexy

If you have sagging breasts, you're likely buying bras that are larger than your true cup size. That’s because a loose-fitting bra can accommodate excess skin and tissue for a more comfortable feel. Sizing up in a bra is a lot like sizing up in your favorite pair of jeans!

After a breast lift, you won’t need to compensate for drooping tissue anymore. The procedure removes excess skin while tightening and elevating your breast contour. While the actual size of your breasts won’t change, you’ll probably feel better in a smaller cup size.

When to Consider a Breast Lift with Implants

If you want to correct drooping breasts and achieve a more youthful look, a breast lift might be the perfect solution. You can rest assured that it won’t significantly reduce the size of your breasts.

However, if you’re still concerned about having inadequate breast volume after surgery, a breast lift with implants may be your best bet. Implants are an excellent way to add flattering volume and shape to your chest. A combination breast lift and breast augmentation procedure is particularly popular with women who have had children or lost a significant amount of weight.
