Would I benefit from a lift or just repair the pocket? (Photo)

Breast Augmentation - Bottoming Out
Fix the bottoming out
From your photographs, you certainly do not need a lift. What you need is a repair of the bottom part of your breast implant capsule. Since you say you're very thin, and want to keep the same size implant, I would recommend to a patient like you that we add Strattice which provides a strong matrix like a hammock to hold the implant from going downward and bottoming out again. Whether you call this an internal bra or a capsulorraphy with Strattice, the principles are all the same. Good luck with your procedure.

You do have some bottoming out, and the correct repair is the Internal Bra, my strong permanent internal suturing technique which lifts and supports your implants position. It is the most common type of revision I perform, 5-6 times a week- it works and it lasts!
You may certainly keep the same size implants, and I do not believe you need a lift!
