I'm an Athlete, What Type of Breast Implants Do You Recommend?

I am muscular and an athlete. I am 5'4,153 lbs & a size 36B. I once had nice perky C's. Then after a body building show and a baby (i got to 210 lbs.) Now being lean/fit again my breasts are saggy, small and go out to the side. I want implants, but not sure on the technique to do.

If the breasts sag you may need both al ift and an augmentation. An exam would be telling and would guide the decision making process.

Best Technique for Breast Surgery?

+1

Thank you for the question and review of your history.

Based on your history of significant weight gain/loss  and the description of your breasts as “saggy, small and go out to the side”,  I wonder if you would benefit from breast lifting as well as breast augmentation surgery. This determination is best made after in person physical examination or (second-best)  after viewing pictures.

Generally, to go from “saggy” to “perky Cs"   does hint that a breast lift may be indicated.

I would suggest that you send pictures for better advice and/or see well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.  Physical examination and a full discussion of your goals will be helpful in determining the best way to proceed for you.

I hope this helps.
