surgical dilemma, please help! (photos)
Doctor Answers 9
In my own practice I educate my patients about the options and ask that they let me decide at the time of surgery after the implants are placed.
Your degree of laxity is in a grey zone where your surgeon might be able to go either way.From your wish photos more lifting is likely better, but if you like and trust one of the surgeons you might allow the PS to decide in the operating room .
Surgical dilemma, please help!
The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast, Actually the perkiness on a person or another, depends on patients skin and breast tissue, hugs!

Please understand that the look every to achieve will only be possible when wearing a bikini top or supportive bra. It is impossible to get that full pushed up look even after breast lift with implants unless you wear a supportive garment..
Implants and a lift
Breast augmentation with lift
Thank you for your question. Based on your photos which demonstrate mild breast ptosis (sagging), you would likely achieve a good result with implants and a limited extent breast lift. If you want minimal scarring, a donut lift can be considered. This tends to flatten the breast somewhat however. If you want the best possible contour, a lollipop lift would be a better option. Many times, the decision on the extent of the lift is decided intraoperatively when the implants are already in place and the skin can be evaluated for residual excess. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
