Should I Include Implants With My Breast Lift?

breast lift is one of the best ways available to correct drooping and sagging breasts after life events like weight loss or pregnancy. Although many women can benefit from a breast lift, it’s important to consider your options for including implants. This is sometimes called a breast augmentation with lift, and it can come with some great benefits. Here’s what to know about it and whether it’s right for you.

WHAT IS A BREAST LIFT?

A breast lift can reposition the breasts to a higher position on the chest when they begin to sag. A good indicator of this is whether the nipples point downward or rest below the crease of the breast. A breast lift doesn’t normally include the use of implants, but it can when you want to add volume to your new breast shape. If your breasts have deflated because of nursing and pregnancy, a good way to restore their profile can be through the use of implants.

SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE IMPLANT

Certain factors like your chest shape, your regular activities, your body structure, and your cosmetic goals can mean that certain sizes or types of implants will be better for you than others. Additionally, certain implant types are more easily placed with certain incisions. It’s important not to have bra cup sizes in mind because implants are sized differently. Rather, bring a picture of the ideal breasts you’d like to achieve and rely on your plastic surgeon’s expertise.

TYPES OF IMPLANTS

The two most common types of implants are silicone-filled and saline-filled. Each has a silicone shell, but silicone-filled implants are placed whole while saline-filled ones are filled after placement. Each has its benefits and different feel.

In terms of cost, silicone is more expensive and calls for a wider incision compared to saline. Nevertheless, it delivers incredible results with a great, natural feel. It’s ideal for patients who have less tissue because it’s less prone to visible rippling. On the other hand, saline is a better option for women with more breast tissue. It can retain the breasts’ natural feel as it increases the size and shape. Both implant types have a long history of safety when placed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, so Dr. Earle can discuss your best options.

WHO NEEDS A BREAST LIFT?

The best way to judge whether a breast lift is ideal for you is by performing a test at home. Place a pencil under the fold of the breast and relax into your natural posture. If the pencil remains in place, you can likely benefit from a breast lift. Whether you can benefit from implants or not depends on your preference for adding volume. It’s important to keep in mind that a breast lift will not augment or reduce the breasts, but rather restore them to a higher position.
