Been told I need an uplift with my BA.

Recently been for a consultation and was advised to have an uplift with my BA but I'm not keen on all the scaring would it be possible to just have a BA without it looking horrible? He measured and currently my nipples are 25 cm low.

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well..
The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but  also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast, Actually the perkiness on a person or another, depends on patients skin and breast tissue!

Breast Lift verses Augmentation

Thank you for your question. It's difficult to give exact recommendations without photos or an in-person consultation. Generally speaking implants alone will provide only a minimal lift. Some patients use high profile round implants and achieve a small lift. For any additional lift needed, a patient would need to undergo a breast lift with implants to achieve a desired aesthetic. You will need to have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon for precise recommendations.
