Implants after a Lift

Hello there .Yes at a year your breast shape will be largely stable and it should be possible to select implants that are going to give you the size you like and also to think about implant type to give you the best shape .The Vectra 3D imaging system can help with this as it gives you an accurate idea of final shape and size .CheersTS

You need to follow your surgeon's policies. In our office if the healing has been uncomplicated we will do the augment after a 3 month wait.
