How about the center, clinic or facility? Are they accredited by a national organization or do they just have State approval. Understand that at the current time, there are three nationally recognized organizations responsible for the highest levels of patient safety, AAAASF, AAACH and JCHO. You owe it to yourself to position yourself for the best possible results but under the most stringent safety regulations, If you have kids, even more so.
How about anesthesia? Will you have a medical doctor certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology or a certified nurse anesthetist (CRNA)? Understand that there is no substitute for research. Cosmetic surgery, no matter how simple it may be to the patients, are invasive procedures and as such carry certain risks and complications.
I wish you the best on your journey. I hope that the info provided has been helpful. Should you require any further clarification, do not hesitate to contact our institute. I answer all questions personally, not through patient coordinators or other marketing individuals.
In our office we use TouchMD which is a web based program in which patients have the ability to load their picture unto the program. I then evaluate them and can actually draw on the picture to show a potential patient where the incisions would be located and how the procedure is to be realized. It's all done to comply with HIPPA which is the federal law that protects the patient's medical information. Look them up. Dr. PG
It depends on your expectations. Implants will make your breasts look fuller however they will not lift your breasts. Since your nipples are already low and since an attractive breast has a nipple that's located at or very near the point of maximum projection of the breast, the only way to accommodate the implant having it centered behind the breast is to place the implant lower on the chest (called dropping the fold). It can be successful on occasion in creating a fuller and tighter looking breast but certainly NOT higher since implants don't really lift. Consider also that a tall person with a long torso can tolerate this maneuver better than a shorter person with a short torso since then it would make the distance between the bottom of your breasts and your belly button even shorter! If you're dead set against a lift, consider form stable implants )gummy bear) since these give you the highest projection at the lower pole of the breast which is where you need it most to improve the aesthetic proportions of your breast. You would need to be seen in order to take the appropriate measurements. Consider always consulting a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in aesthetic breast surgery and only plan to undergo your operation in a fully accredited surgical center.
All the best

Breast implants +/- lift
Breast lift and implants, some advices:
After having analyzed all the information and photos provided to us, I realize that you have very sagging and small breasts. In this regard, you need volume (implants) and projection (the lift): Breast Augmentation w/Breast Lift.
I recommend you to use microtexturized highly cohesive silicon implant ("gummy bear" implants), with high projection, and 450ml will be excelent on you, to fill the breasts properly.
Finally, to perform the breast lift I recommend a Periareolar Round Block Breast Lift ("Benelli mastopexy"), which has an unnoticed scar around the areola, and if we see (in the surgery) that we can't obtain adecuate projection just with the Benelli Lift, we have to perform a "Lollipop breast lift".

Lift versus implant
No implant will fix your ptosis. Do not let any charlatan doctor convince you otherwise. Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon. beware of false promises.

Just implants or implants and a lift?
Thank you for sharing your photos and question. You have mild drooping with the nipple appearing a bit low on the breast mound. Breast implants alone will not correct this (though you are right, with large implants you will see a small lift in the nipple areolar complex it will not be enough to get yours in the right place) and I wouldn't recommend choosing your size based upon the amount of lift you are desiring. Depending upon your physical exam and general health, you would likely benefit from a circumareolar (around the areola) lift with or without implants. You could certainly stage the procedures, though it is generally less expensive to have them together (because of the anesthesia and OR time). Some plastic surgeons offer financing through Care Credit and other organizations and this may also be an option for you. I would recommend having a consultation so that you can get specific recommendations and pricing- it will make it easier to know how much you need and what the best plan is. Good luck!
