What Makes A Good Candidate For Breast Implants?
Thank you for your question! I would advise you to seek a board certified plastic surgeon. Have a consultation with the doctor and maybe a sizing to see what your best option is. Best of luck!

Lift without implants
Most of my patients desire superior fullness, and a lift without implants will never deliver the fullness they desire. This sounds like your exact situation. You would likely benefit from implants and revision mastopexy. Seek consults with board certified breasts experts. Best of luck.
Previous breast surgery increases risk of nipple necrosis
Thank you for your question and photos. Your previous lift may compromise any future breast procedure. Please discuss in detail about your risks and complications associated with decreased circulation and nipple sensitivity.

Are there candidates that are not a good fit for breast implants?
Not every person is a good fit for a breast augmentation
surgery.It is really important to
discuss your goals and expectations with your plastic surgeon, so that your
desires are met.I wish I could tell you
that there is an absolute or universal truth with regards to the questions
asked.Unfortunately, not.The answers are individualized and
variable.I wish you the best of luck.
Thank you for your question and photos. It appears that you would benefit most from implants, at least. The reason that you should consider another lift is because, as your doctor noted, your breasts will sag further with implants which would eventually warrant a lift. If you are set on augmenting your breasts, you might want to seek a second opinion.
All the best,
You are a good fit
There are non candidates for breast augmentation. You are not one of them. You will benefit from breast augmentation. Go for it.
Breast lift with augmentation
It appears that your desire for a "perkier" breast would be met with an implant. However, you would likely also benefit from a revision breast lift to improve the new shape. This combination procedure should be carefully discussed with your PS. Implant volume selection, revision lift technique, implant pocket placement are some of the major discussions points you should anticipate.
hope that helps!
you would do well with placement of sub muscular implants to match the size and volume you desire. you will also need another lift to reposition the breast tissue and the nipple in a more aesthetic position. you would be a fine candidate. go to a board certified plastic surgeon who does a lot of breast surgery.
Why not implants?
Online evaluation is of course limited but it appears you likely need a lift combined with an augmentation. A revision lift with augmentation is complex so I definitely recommend obtaining a formal consultation or getting a 2nd opinion.
Breast lift with augmentation
You would achieve the best results from a combination of a breast lift (mastopexy) with a moderate sized implant to restore volume, especially to the upper pole of the breast. Newer techniques such allow for fewer, shorter incisions than the the older "anchor" or "inverted-T" techniques and give a better, more natural result.
