Lift instead of large implants
ideal photograph shows the breasts high on the chest wall and medial. However, your nipples are too far apart and
too low. I recommend a new technique
called Breast Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast LiftTM. Using only a circumareola incision it is
possible to reshape your breast tissue creating upper pole fullness, elevate
them higher on the chest wall and more medial to increase your cleavage. Through the same incision, implants can be
placed. Aligning the areola, breast
tissue and implant over the bony prominence of the chest wall maximizes
anterior projection with a minimal size implant. Small round textured silicone gel implants
placed retro-pectoral look and feel more natural, are more stable, less likely
to ripple or have complications needing revision. Implant profile is irrelevant in the
retro-pectoral position since the muscle compresses it. 425 cc implants are large, may extrude
inferiorly and laterally requiring revision.
22% of women who undergo breast augmentation require revision within 2
years because they are dissatisfied with the result.

Thank you for your pictures. Your implants will lower the crease especially to achieve the look you want.
When to lower the crease with breast augmentation
While the VECTRA analysis can be very helpful, it does not take into account factors such as nipple to fold distance with skin stretch. Also, the size you desire is quite large, which may cause issues with coverage and support. One option to consider might be form stable implants, which can be wider than tall, with a shorter nipple-to fold distance.
Thank you for the picture.
I believe that this size will give you great results, although I think that a high profile will give you more definition.
You have great insight into a technical situation. Without a few more exam measurements it's tough to tell exactly if that implant could fit without lowering your fold. Based on your general size and the implant chosen likely your fold would usually need to be lowered to make your nipples look appropriately positioned. The vectra looks like a pretty good representing. For a more natural look and no chance of lowering your fold a smaller implant would be safer
Dear Lil Bubbles,
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!
You must have the crease lowered to have this size implant. Look at the picture of the breast you like. The distance from her nipple to crease is probably 9cm. The crease is lowered during many breast augmentation procedures. If it is not done then you have your implant too high and your nipples pointing at the floor. You can get what you want. Good Luck
