Breast Lift vs Breast Augmentation
Thank you for your question.
It is difficult to say without a full assessment. If your nipples have not
descended to, or below your breast crease- you might have a nice result with
implants alone. The size and projection would be determined by your preferred
look and your specific measurements.
A lift alone can correct ptosis, but may leave the you with an underfilled
breast, while implant placement without a lift may provide
insufficient "lifting." Combining the breast lift and
augmentation into a single procedure may also be a great option for you.
I'd recommend booking a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to
discuss what you would like to change and learn about your options.
All the best.
Breast Augmentation or Lift
Thank you for your question and posting a picture. It appears that an augmentation will be sufficient. I'd recommend undergoing Vectra 3D Imaging so you can get an idea of your potential outcome. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon for precise recommendations.
Looks like just implants to me but better pics may help. A higher profile implant shape will be a good look for your frame. Good Luck!
Thanks for your query and the pic.
Your left breast appears larger and lower than the right which are not uncommon findings. It appears that you may get away with just the augmentation, but remember, the asymmetries that exist now (nipple height discrepancies) will remain postoperatively as well.
Best of luck.
The photographs are a little poor but you appear to have no ptosis and I think you will do just fine with breast augmentation only
Go with implants. The shaped implants will contribute the most lift to the nipple, but round implants will work just fine. You don't need to choose a particular size, just pick the ones you like best during the sizing. Your nipple to fold distance is short, but you don't have drooping of the breast, so no lift will be required.
Hi there. From your posted photographs it appears that an augmentation only would be the most appropriate surgery for you. You nipples are above the breast crease and surgical maneuvers can be performed to center your nipple/areola in relation to the implant without performing a lift.
Based on the photos, I would say that a breast augmentation along should be just fine. I have several patients like you that did fine with just an augmentation.
It does look like your nipples (especially on your left) is a bit low. This might be better lifted when you get implants.
Thanks for the question. Your photo is very limited. You may be able to get an augmentation only but a periareolar lift on the ptotic side may help with symmetry and help your surgery last nicely. You may also need slightly different sized implants to correct for asymmetry; an in person consult would be best. See a board certified plastic surgeon and get a full evaluation. In the end you should have a fantastic looking result.
