As a woman ages, she may experience a loss of volume in her breasts. This is due to a variety of factors, such as age, gravity, and pregnancy. The majority of women will agree that the preferred breast is perky, regardless of its size. However, it is often unclear which procedure, a breast lift or breast augmentation, can help restore perkiness to the breasts. Read on to learn about how a plastic surgeon can restore a youthful breast contour.
Will Breast Implants Lift the Breasts?
Many patients believe that breast implants can improve their sagging breasts alone. This is not so. A breast implant cannot reposition the nipple or the breast tissue. A breast lift is needed to achieve these goals.
For patients who wish to augment the breasts and lift them to a perkier placement, the breast augmentation procedure can be combined with a breast lift.
How to Tell If You Need a Breast Lift
During your consultation, Dr. Husni will measure the breast to determine whether a lift is needed. The distance between the nipple and breast fold will indicate whether or not a breast lift should be performed. If it is determined that you do need a breast lift, you should then consider whether you would like a combined breast lift and breast augmentation procedure. This will not only allow the breasts to be lifted, but augmented as well. These procedures can be done at once or as staged procedures.
