Breast Lift with Implant
Thanks for submitting your photo.
My advise to you will be a breast lift procedure with implants and lollipop scar.Only performing an implant procedure will not make you happy because of the width of your NAC diameter. Another option for you will be a periareolar mastopexia surgery with implant for a good shape and a lollipop scar.
Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Hi Ginger0210, I agree that you would need a lift with implant to achieve the best aesthetic outcome. I would be weary of any surgeon that tells you otherwise. First, let's clarify, the "benelli" lift is a fancy term for a periareolar or modified mastopexy (breast lift). There are generally 3 approaches to lifting the breasts and this is the most minimal approach, only achieving a very modest improvement in breast ptosis (sagging). I would talk with your surgeon in more detail and form an understanding of exactly why this was the method they recommended and how much lift can be expected. Maybe he agreed to it simply because you are fearful of scarring and did not want the more visible incision sites. And as long as you understand you may not have the end breast shape and perkiness you want, but will have minimal scars, then your expectations are set and you can move forward. However, if you've been given the indication you will have a much higher, perkier breasts with this minimal incision, you need to talk further. This would be a good time for the second opinion! To address your main concerns: Periareolar incisions DO tend to be ideal, forming very fine scars when totally healed and there aren't any additional risk associated with this incision for loss of sensation. (The nerves that give your nipples feeling run from the outermost edge of the chest leaving the rib cage and running through your chest muscle then into the breast.) Bottom line here, you need to do your research the 3 types of breast lifts, look at patients before/afters to see that the scarring from vertical and full mastopexies are really not THAT bad and be honest with yourself about your ideal outcome and what achieving that result will entail. Everyone wants high, perfectly symmetrical breasts, but no scars, no pain and no changes in sensation. That is just something no surgeon can offer. I wish you luck! You will find what's best for you, just do your research!
