    Do You Need Breast Implants with Breast Lift?

    Breast Surgeon Atlanta, GAIf the droopiness of your breasts has you considering plastic surgery, you probably have several questions about the details of a breast lift. Many Muse Plastic Surgery patients ask whether breast implants are included with breast lift surgery — or whether implants are a necessary part of the surgery.

    Muse Plastic Surgery is fortunate to have recently welcomed to our team Dr. Sabine Lovell, a plastic surgeon who specializes in breast procedures and is at the top of her field. In this blog, she explains how a breast lift works and whether it is necessary to add breast implants to the procedure.

    What Breast Lift Accomplishes

    As your skin and breast tissue age, your breasts are more likely to sag, which inevitably detracts from their appealing shape. A breast lift removes excess skin and raises the breast tissue to a more youthful position higher on the chest. The breasts then look firmer and fuller. During a breast lift, nipples that point downward and hang close to the breast crease are also repositioned higher so that they project outward for a “perky” appearance. Enlarged areolas can also be resized, as necessary.

    Adding Implants

    You may have noticed that, amidst all the benefits of a breast lift, there is no mention of augmenting the size. That is because a breast lift elevates the existing breast tissue rather than adding volume to accomplish this youthful look. With that said, if you would like to enhance the size of your breasts at the same time, you can choose to combine a breast lift and a breast augmentation.

    In fact, this procedure pairing is common. Women often find that their breast volume decreases after pregnancy or weight loss and want to restore their previous size. Other women who were only somewhat dissatisfied with their breast size but now seek cosmetic surgery to address breast sagging may decide to add implants since they are already undergoing breast surgery. Whatever your motivations, the surgeons at Muse Plastic Surgery have a wealth of experience creating a beautiful breast appearance when performing these surgeries in tandem.

    Should You Add Implants?

    It is best to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if adding implants is the safest decision for you. .  During a consultation at Muse Plastic Surgery, your surgeon can help to demonstrate what your breasts will look like after a breast lift. If you decide that the sizing is not to your liking, then you can discuss implant options to help you achieve a physique that brings you happiness and confidence.
