I am 28 and I really need a breast lift. I put on a lot of weight in my early 20’s, by boobs went from a B to a Dear Daughter. I have lost the weight now and I am roughly a C due to excess skin, but my boobs look NOTHING like they used to. It makes me very self-consious and I desperately want to go for a breast lift.
I don’t necessarily want to put implants in at the same time. I am happy to go back to by perky B cups, but if I have to because of excess skin, then I will consider very small implants.
Has anyone else has a breast lift done? With or without implants? Please could you share your experiences.

I had an undiagnosed hormonal condition in my teens that caused my breasts to develop (very) abnormally. I had corrective surgery in my late 20s that included bilateral implants and a lift on the left side. It was an expensive surgery because it involved correcting deformities, and although I’m normally a big proponent of loving yourself just the way you are, this was something that made me so uncomfortable in my own skin and affected my relationships so much that it was worth the investment. I did end up with a long scar running down the center of my left breast from nipple to crease that looked awful at first. It faded almost to nothing within a year, but I was initially worried about that.
Two pieces of advice: (1) go to lots of consultations and interview prospective surgeons carefully. The one I chose had the least “enthusiastic” salesy persona and was very upfront with me about the kind of results I could expect and what could go wrong. It was discouraging at first and it seemed like a poor bedside manner, but she was a lot more interested in doing the best work she could and having her patients be truly satisfied than in pulling in as much business as possible. She also did a lot of reconstructions for cancer patients and therefore had an inclination toward restoring a natural non-porn-star look. She definitely over-delivered and I’m really happy with the outcome a decade later. (2) if you plan to have kids, make sure you cover the possible consequences on breast-feeding in your consultations.

I have had a breast implant surgery to fill up the space from strecthed out skin after breastfeeding. It was one of the best self improvement things I have done for myself. I say go for it! I would do it over and over again.

I’m getting a lift in a few months, I already have breast implants, I’ll likely take them out when I do the lift.
its expensive, my doctor is charging $14k but he is amazing and had a great reputation. I did a few different consults and got a great vibe from him and immediately knew it was a match.
do lots of research!
