Breast Lift Options
Breast Augmentation - increases volume, superior pole fullness, and has a 5cm in fold beneath breast with no scarring on the font of the breast or around the areola.
Periareolar (Donut) breast lift - Improved position of nipple and moderate reshaping of tissue. An implant can be added to increase volume.
Vertical (Lollipop) Breast Lift - Excellent repositioning of breast tissue with incisions around areola and down inferior portion of breast. In a vertical lollipop lift we are able to perform a more powerful reshaping of breast tissue due to our ability to reduce the skin envelope and to place internal sutures to reshape breast tissue. An implant can be added to increase volume.
Choosing between breast augmentation alone and breast lift
These patients have mild to moderate ptosis that can be corrected with an implant alone with minimal scarring. The patient will have increased volume with they approach as we are adding implants. The alternative is breast lift alone where will do not increase volume but lift existing tissues using additional incisions.
Choosing between lift alone or breast lift with implants:
A question I often ask is whether a patient is happy with her volume in a push up bra. If the answer is yes then a list along is often a good choice. If the answer is no and the patient desires more volume then we often choose to add an implant.
Implants alone versus implants and lift
Breast Lift Needed
Thank you for your question. I would recommend that you will need some form of a breast lift either a peri-areolar mastopexy, in which your making an incision to raise the nipple and areolar complex a small amount once the implants are placed. This can also reduce the size of the areola. I would recommend that you not go big. I would recommend that you try out implant size and judge at your consultation. Accurate measurements and quality of your skin will play a role as well. Good luck to you. You can check my link for further information.
