Managing Scars Following a Breast Lift with Augmentation
Additionally, scar therapy with #scar maturation products (e.g. BioCorneum or Embrace) is recommended for the best scar and can be started a few weeks following your surgery.
Concerns pertaining to your personal #healing should always be discussed with your surgeon.
Your Plastic Surgeon will measure you to determine the best shape and size of the implants to be used.

Looking at your pictures, I think you need to understand that an implant adds volume, it does not lift. A breast lift lifts. Going with an implant will fill out the breast envelope and add more volume on top, creating an illusion of a lift, which may be enough to match your expectations. This is where a proper consultation comes into place.
Periareolar Mastopexy Augmentation
This will limit the scar to just around the areola, which tends to hide very well as it is at the natural transition of your areola and breast skin. The combination of the periarealar mastopexy and implant will give patients like yourself a very good result. The combination of the larger implant and periareolar lift will give you a nice round appearance. One of the most common surgeries I do is the periareolar mastopexy with an implant between 400 and 500cc as this combination typically gives patients like you a very good result.
You do want to make sure that if you decide to go with a periareolar mastopexy or Benelli lift that you do the procedure with someone that has a lot of experience in this procedure as there are subtle technical details that make a big difference in the outcome of your surgery.
Consult with your board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the surgery.
I hope this helps, you look like a great candidate for a breast lift with implant and will likely have a great result!

Incision Placement for Breast Lift with Implants
It’s virtually impossible to make recommendations regarding breast lift surgery without being able to perform a physical exam. Your pictures suggest that a peri-areolar lift is definitely a possibility for treating your breast sag, but its use might require aesthetic compromises.
These compromises might involve the shape of the breasts and the quality of scars. Smaller incisions may require more gathering of the skin and more tension on the closure, which can often result in unattractive scars. Failure to remove excess skin can often result in distortion of the breast shape and residual breast sag.
In addition, the use of larger breast implants is problematic. Larger implants can cause pressure on the overlying muscle and skin flaps. This in turn has the potential to damage blood supply to the nipple areola complex and cause skin necrosis. In addition, larger implants can cause tension on the wound closure, which might cause wound breakdown and spread of the scar. For these reasons, most plastic surgeons don’t perform breast lifts when larger implants are utilized.
Under these circumstances, great care needs to be taken when choosing the best treatment option for any particular patient. In your case, it may depend on your aesthetic goals and willingness to make compromises. It’s important to consult a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in this area. This surgeon should be able to make an appropriate recommendation for your condition.

You already have a significant amount of breast tissue and should follow the advice of your plastic surgeon regarding the size of breast implants that will be best for you. Next
In my experience implants and the 500 cc range are quite large and when combined with a breast lift can cause healing problems and scarring issues and spreading of the scar around the areola. In my practice I rarely put larger than 350 cc implants during a breast lift.
