Ptosis after breast augmentation

Thank you for your question.  Often, patients may be borderline candidates for a lift and augmentation and a conservative option would be to do the augmentation first and then a lift if needed in the future.  Photos would help provide some assessment, but I would also recommend that you visit with your plastic surgeon to discuss thing directly.

Ptosis After My Breast Augmentation?

Without pictures it is not possible to make an assessment of any possible ptosis. It is best for you to meet with your operating surgeon to make an accurate determination and discuss potential steps.

6 months PO ptosis

Without any photos we cannot see if there is a real ptosis. Try to contact a certified plastic surgeon who can discuss and show you the options that you have.

Talk to surgeon and discuss about it, it can always be revised.

Your surgeon will tell you if there is or not a ptosis, and he will be the person to correct any thing from your surgery.

Ptosis post aug

Without photos it is hard to tell but as long as your nipple is above your inframammary fold you really don't have true ptosis. Go back and discuss with your surgeon.

Breast aug 6 months ago and now ptosis

Thank you for your question. You need to see your surgeon or some other for in person evaluation. If it is ptotic, breast lift can be done. Good Luck


Thank you for your question.  If this is truly the case, you most likely would benefit most from a breast lift.  Please see your operating surgeon to discuss this possibility.

All the best,
