5 weeks post op Donut Lift with Breast Augmentation, are your breasts still supposed to sag? (photos)
Doctor Answers 5
I think the Donut lift was inadequate. You had too much sag preoperatively for a donut lift and implants. You need the vertical component in order to lift the lower pole of your breasts to a level above the fold. I recommend waiting approximately six months and consider a revision at that time. Hopefully your surgeon should recognize this and address your concerns. It appears that the donut lift was, indeed, done well, unfortunately inadequate for your case. Give your original surgeon the opportunity to correct it.

Unfortunately in your case, either a lollipop or anchor mastopexy would have been a better choice. Both of these procedures can address excess skin and provide more significant breast lifting. The exact procedure chosen will depend upon the physical examination and your anatomic findings.
If you're considering revisional surgery, it's important to consult your plastic surgeon. Your surgeon should be able to formulate a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals. It's important that revisional surgery be delayed for at least six months to allow adequate wound healing and resolution of swelling.
