Balancing your shape with a lift
To lift or not to lift, that is the question
Restoring shape and volume is what breast enhancement procedures are all about. When there is loose skin, this must be addressed. There are many options available with different lift procedures and a multitude of breast implant options. Here is a basic list of the four options available:
- Breast lift alone (mastopexy)
- Breast lift combined with a small breast implant (below the muscle)
- Breast lift followed by a large breast implant (2 separate procedures)
- Breast implant alone (on top of the muscle, silicone)
Every woman is built differently and every breast is different, even on the same person. So, each procedure is customized for every individual. The final decision on how to proceed can be made after a history and physical examination, detailed measurements, photographs, computer simulation, trying on sizers, reviewing before and after photographs of other women similar in shape and size and talking with your surgeon. A surgical plan will be developed that depends on:
- Patient desires
- The breast "footprint"
- The expertise of the surgeon
- Down time
- Risks and potential complications
Please consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who performs breast enhancement procedures frequently. This is an outpatient procedure with a quick recovery and a very high patient satisfaction rating.
Looking at your photos, I think an uplift will work nicely
Some surgeons suggest having breast implants to avoid an uplift. I think you cannot choose this option (unless you want to have huge huge implants! These will drop down very quickly in any case, so definitely a bad idea).
After an uplift only, the breasts often look and feel smaller, so you might want to consider implants as well if you think this will be an issue for you. Try on a non-padded sports bra and look at the size of your breasts. If they are big enough, then an uplift only is a good option. If too small, maybe combine an uplift with implants. If they are too big, then a breast reduction is for you.

Breast Lift Can Enhance Breast Appearance
The breast lift or mastopexy is a number of different techniques that can lift a droopy breast, reshape the breast, move the nipple and areola to a better position, and adjust the size of the areola.
You may be a candidate for breast lift if you are looking to improve the shape of your breasts and have more fullness to the upper part of your breasts.

Do I need a breaset lift?

Breast Lift Will Give You a Nice Outcome
Correcting Breast Sag
Your pictures suggest significant breast sag which would benefit from a breast lift utilizing an anchor incision.
Each patient has unique aesthetic goals and specific anatomic findings that must be considered when making decisions about this type of surgery. For instance, in some cases, decreasing breast size may be a consideration and breast reduction should be part of the procedure. In other cases, patients may want larger breasts. Under these circumstances it may be appropriate to add a breast implant to increase breast volume.
Based on your concerns, consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is appropriate. This surgeon will help you determine which option is best for you.
