Breast Lift: Q&AAsk a Question
When Should a Breast Lift Be Done at Time of Expander or Implant?
Hello, I have had a unilateral Mastectomy Right side. My current breast, Left side is a size B. I would like to go a little bigger to possibly a C with reconstruction and implants. I am undecided which is the best method as a few PS reccomend doing a breast lift at the time of the expander and another PS says to wait till the switch out for implants and do it then as I do not know my size. I also have been told that doing a lift at the same time as implants causes capsular contraction.
