Implants Won't Lift But Will Fill Your Breasts
Your nipple is at or above hte fold, and you have lost a lot of upper pole fullness. As long as you do not mind the fold of your breast getting a bit longer, and do not mind being full (C-D range), and given your agee, I say an implant alone may be best for you.
After you have kids, or on down the road a few years, a lift would be more beneficial and acceptable to you.
Breast Implant with Lift?
Judging purely by your photos, you may be fine with an implant only. There can be argument whether it should be subglandular versus submuscular versus dual plane. You have enough lower pole tissue that a dual plane would help you and give the result you need without the down fall of subglandular implants.
I would try to match the implant to your base diameter and you may benefit with a higher projecting implant to get you the fill and as much lift as possible.
Just remember only through an exam can it really be decided if you need a lift.
Breast implants to lift slightly sagging breasts?
Hello! Thank you for your question and photos! The mastopexy (breast lift) procedure raises the breast, which ultimately provides a more
youthful and perky breasts. This is done by
removing the extra loose skin and rearranging the surrounding breast
tissue in order to reshape and support the newly formed breast. At
the same time, the nipple-areolar complex (NAC) is raised to the ideal position above the fold beneath your breast (the
inframammary fold) as well as being placed at the most projecting portion. Oftentimes with age or following pregnancy, the NAC
becomes widened and enlarged. This may be reduced in size during the
breast lift procedure.
It is common for the breast to lose its firmness and uplifted appearance over
time, which is also accentuated with age, pregnancy/breast feeding,
weight gain/loss, and gravity. This results in breast ptosis, or
sagging of the breast, with a “deflated” appearance. Women seek the
mastopexy procedure to regain the previous youthful appearance of her
breasts and women report increased confidence, self-esteem, and
femininity once achieving this desired shape and fullness. Breast lifts
may or may not be performed with implants – the implant would add
increased size but also greater fullness in the upper pole of the
breasts which creates more cleavage.
The decision will be completely up to you. I believe that an implant to increase the size as well as a small lift will likely give you the best results. Consult with a plastic surgeon who will discuss with you the various options and assist you in deciding which will be the right procedure(s) for you. Best wishes!
Breast implants to lift slightly sagging breasts
The SIMPLE answer is - YES.
But - your predicament is common and NOT simple.
- If your weight loss is on going - I would weight until it has stabilized.
- RE "I'm 22 and plan to have kids and breast feed them someday." - IF the someday is in the next 2-3 years, I would urge you to wait until after having your family but - if it is longer you may want to have something done.
- as far as your degree of droopiness (Ptosis in Plastic surgery speak) you state that the nipple and areola are well above the crease - that being the normal youthful position, the choice of the implant that would best fill your breasts is based on multiple factors,the 2 most important ones in my opinion are the extent of current breast tissue available to cover the top of the implant AND the extent of chest flat realty the implants can sit on.
Any implant would improve your appearance BUT your present breasts would require large implants 400cc plus which would have to be centered under your lateralized nipple areola complexes - resulting in a full but displaced look. Moreover, the larger implants will be associated with a faster droop of the augmented breasts. You MAY wish to consider a minor lift (which would centralize the nipple areolas and better cone your breasts) combined with an augmentation with an implant in the high 300. That may yield a better cosmetic and longer lasting result.
I hope this was helpful.
Breast Implants would provide you with lift and fullness
Looking at your photos, you have some volume loss but not a huge amount of ptosis or sagging. We grade sagging into 4 categories. It can range from minimal sagging, to severe ptosis where the nipple and breast tissue is way below your crease at the base of the breast. Implants in your case would improve the fullness and slightly lift the breast and nipple. If you truly want to be a full C-D, then a round, moderate profile silicone implant would work best. An incision in the crease would give you a great result as it would be minimally visible. Eliminating the lift and keeping the implant submuscular would decrease any complications with future breast feeding.
Seek out a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and discuss all these issues with them.
Breast Implants to Lift Slightly Sagging Breasts?
Breast sagging that occurs with age, weight gaining or loss and pregnancy. This situation may cause aesthetic problems and lack of confidence. Breast lifting surgery is intended to correct sagging and providing a better position and firmness. Sagging can be fixed also by incisionless way of skin tightening, The Spider Web Aesthetics. In the Spider Web Aesthetics, absorbable medical sutures are placed via very fine needles under the skin triggering the body itself to produce collagen and cell regeneration. The cell regeneration and collagen production results with tightening and regeneration of skin. The Spider Web Technique can also be combined with implants and autologous stem cell enriched fat transfer.
unusual for plastic surgeons to encounter patients who don’t have breast
hypoplasia associated with mild breast sag.These patients want larger breasts, but don’t want the scarring that’s
frequently seen with breast lift surgery.
Under these circumstances, dual-plane
breast augmentation offers significant advantages.This procedure creates a pocket beneath the
pectoralis muscle, as well as a separation between the muscle and the overlying
breast tissue.This results in the
implant having muscle coverage superiorly and breast tissue covering the
Your pictures suggest that you would
be an excellent candidate for a dual-plane augmentation procedure.
You have pseudo-ptosis of the breasts. Your nipple is in good position, but your breast tissue is quite low. The implant will help achieve the upper pole fullness that you have lost. As long as you understand that the implant will sit low on your chest, you may be happy with an implant alone.
I think all you need is an implant, but you may need a lift after having children. Having said that, I would put the implant under the muscle to preserve more blood supply to the nipple in case you want a lift later.
As far as size is concerned, a 350- 375cc implant will probably put you into a large C/small D cup. Once you decide on the volume, then the profile will be determined by the width of your breast.
Breast Implants Will Improve Sagging Breasts But May Need Lift after Future Pregnancy
Thank you for your question.
From your photo Breast Implants alone should give you a nice result. However after your future planned pregnancy you may well need a Breast Lift
