Lift instead of large implants
Gary Horndeski, M.D.
A Breast Lift May be Beneficial with the Size Increase
The size of the new implant may stretch the skin due to the added #weight. A #mastopexy or breast lift operation is designed to improve the shape and position of the breasts without reducing their size. This may be something to consider. It is the most suitable for #breasts which sag or droop (ptosis) as a result of development, aging, pregnancy, breast-feeding and weight loss . Some patients will experience better results to restore superior fullness if an #implant is used at the time of mastopexy; better known as #AugmentationMastopexy.
With both implant types there are choices when it comes to size, shape, and profile. The criteria best to suit you will be discussed in full detail at your breast augmentation consultation.
Altogether, the surgery will create an elevated, more youthful breast contour. Also, the nipple and areolae of the desired size and correct heightmay also be addressed. I prefer to use a #shortscar technique, #LollipopScar or #DonutLift” rather than the majority of surgeons in the United States that use an anchor pattern lift which involve more significant scarring.The best method and #technique for your #procedures will be discussed in greater length during your one-on-one consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.

I believe that this size will give you great results, although I think that a high profile will give you more definition.

The implant size that you are planning to get is not small. You will require some lowering of your fold to keep your nipple/areola complexes centered on your new breast mounds. Your Vectra imaging pictures are probably a fairly accurate indicator of your result. If you like that result, then proceed as planned. Good luck!
