Will I Need Smaller Bras after Breast Lift?

iStock_000010846792XSmall-238x300If you are planning to have breast lift surgery, you may need to shop for new bras afterward, according to the results of a recent study published in the July issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

A research team from New York University followed 20 women who had breast lift surgery. The women were of low to normal weight and wore at least a C-cup bra prior to surgery. They did not have breast reduction or augmentation — only lift. Five years after their surgery, the women reported an average decrease of about one cup size.

This may come as a surprise, given that breast lift surgery is not designed to change the size of the breasts. It corrects breast sagging (ptosis) due to pregnancy, nursing and the natural effects of the aging process. During surgery, the breast tissue is elevated and re-sculpted into a more youthful position on the chest wall. The nipple-areolar complex is also lifted to a perkier position on the breast mound.

More than 90,000 women had breast lift surgery in 2013, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

What Accounts for the Difference in Cup Size?

One theory that was quickly disputed was that the women bought different types of bras (sizing is known to differ between brands). But the women did not report a change in bra manufacturer.

Researchers suggest the real reason behind the cup size decrease is patient comfort and the fit of the bra. Women with sagging breasts may be more comfortable wearing a looser-fitting bra. After the breasts have been lifted, smaller bras are more comfortable to wear.

Why This Matters

This information is important for setting appropriate expectations for women considering breast lift surgery.

“…Conveying to {patients} at the initial visit, that lifting alone will result in a smaller cup size avoids the potential for over reducing and patient dissatisfaction,” said Dr. Katie Elizabeth Weichman, of the NYU research team.

If you are thinking about having breast lift, understand that you may be wearing the wrong size bra (don’t worry, most women do). It’s safe to assume that your true preoperative cup size is smaller than what you currently wear.

Also, in case you were wondering: all of the women who participated in the study reported satisfaction with their breast lift results!
