photographs show your breasts are too low, too lateral, pointing outward and
asymmetrical. You would definitely
benefit from a simultaneous lift and I recommend a new technique called Breast
Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast LiftTM. Using only a circumareola incision it is
possible to reshape your breast tissue creating upper pole fullness, elevate
them higher on the chest wall and more medial to increase your cleavage. Through the same incision, implants can be
placed. Aligning the areola, breast
tissue and implant over the bony prominence of the chest wall maximizes
anterior projection with a minimal size implant. Small round textured silicone gel implants placed
retro-pectoral look and feel more natural, are more stable, less likely to
ripple or have complications needing revision.
Implant profile is irrelevant in the retro-pectoral position since the
muscle compresses it. Even though you
are young, the weight loss has caused your breasts to droop and will need to be
corrected. 22% of women who undergo
breast augmentation alone require revision within 2 years because they are
dissatisfied with the result. A frequent
cause of dissatisfaction is not performing a simultaneous lift when

Thank you for your question. Based on your photos, it appears that you
would benefit from a breast lift (mastopexy) due to the degree of ptosis
(sagging)that you have. Breast augmentation would certainly give you the volume
lost after weight reduction. Congratulations and good luck!
Thank you for your question. You will most likely have a better result with a combination breast lift and breast augmentation. These can be done at the same time or as 2 separate procedures. Please consult a board certified plastic surgeon for an exam and consultation for the best opinion.
and thank you for your question.
Judging by the photos
you have provided it appears as though you would benefit most with a breast
lift along with the implants. Without the lift your breasts will likely sag
more, sort of like a ball in a sock phenomenon. I recommend that you see
a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers
to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and
examination is performed.
Best of luck to you!
Base on the photos you provided you are a candidate for breast lift with augmentation, you could choose which ever implants you like best saline or silicone, Search for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best luck to you.
Thank you for the pictures.
I do believe that you make a great candidate for a breast lift and implant placement.
Your results will be better with a lift. You should choose a PS that can show you pictures of patients similar to you who have had an augmentation with and without a lift
- Congratulations on losing weight!
- Based upon your photos, it appears that a breast lift would provide you with the best outcome.
- Going with just augmentation, and not a lift, would likely provide you with sub-optimal results.
- This could be performed at the same time as breast augmentation.
- Definitely meet with a board certifed plastic surgeon to find out more details.
- Thanks for sharing!
It sounds from your comments that you definitely would like to be bigger. This would mean an augmentation. The question is whether or not in addition to the augmentation, whether you need a breast lift.
Visiting with a board-certified plastic surgeon, can help you determine whether or not you need a lift. This will depend on what size you would like to be, and the degree of laxity of your skin. It may be such that if you need a lift, that it may be simply the periareolar lift rather than an incision that goes vertically down your breast.
I think that breast lift and augmentation will produce the best result for you.
