Borderline lift. What would you recommend? (photos)
Doctor Answers 9
If you want to go "big" then you may get away with an augmentation only as it may fill out your existing breast envelope. But, this won't give you a sustainable result in years to come.
If you want a more subtle and natural augmentation, then you definitely need the lift.
If you decide to go with the augmentation to see how it goes, then I would recommend sticking with the same surgeon as he/she will have consented you properly and the 2nd operation won't be as difficult.
I hope this helps and good luck.

Hello and thank you for your question
Even with the best of intentions, an online forum will not provide you with a satisfactory answer. There are a number of factors that go into making the final decision about which option to choose. Some of these are based on measurements, and there are quite a few. Some of these are based on examination visually, some of these are based on discussion with you about what look you want to achieve, your likes, dislikes and expectations.
Larger implant option has advantages and disadvantages, and that's the same for going without the lift options. You need to be fully informed, so that you can make the right decision for you.
So, as you can see, this is a highly personalised process. If you are unsure, and wish to, you can seek another opinion. Considering the big decision you are making, the fee for a consultation is, in my opinion, worth it, to receive the information, assessment, expertise and discussion with your Plastic Surgeon.
I wish you well and hope this has been of value to you.
I would suggest implants only as your nipple looking at the photos is not that low that it requires to be lifted.
I would think if you just have implants this should fill your breast envelope adequately enough and also raise your nipple a little.
Unsure what size implant at this stage as I usually base this decision on measurements of your breast base.
Hope this helps in your decision
Do you need a lift or could an implant give you a C cup look?
