Should I Get Breast Implants With My Breast Lift?

Age, gravity, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can take a major toll on your breasts. What may have once been a perky bustline can easily turn into a slightly deflated and sagging appearance. A breast lift from John Park MD Plastic Surgery can rejuvenate your chest profile to restore your young and perky-looking breasts. Many women that visit with Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park often question whether they should opt for breast implants while undergoing a breast lift. There’s no clear-cut answer as everyone woman’s body is different. Here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding whether or not to combine breast implants with your lift.

Breast Lift Doesn’t Increase Breast Volume

During a breast lift, also called mastopexy, the breasts are lifted by tightening the existing breast tissue, removing any excess tissue and skin. The nipples are also repositioned to a more natural location and minimized to be proportionate with the breast size. A breast lift doesn’t significantly change breast volume, such as that during a breast reduction, as only enough skin and tissue are removed to create an appealing contour and shape. By lifting and tightening the natural breasts, Dr. Park can reshape them to give them the perky and firm appearance that’s desired. A breast lift will not add fullness or make your breasts bigger, but sometimes in certain situations, breast volume can appear to be enhanced following a breast lift because of the higher and more appealing contour.

Breast Implants Can Create Symmetry During Breast Lift

Breasts aren’t created equal or even. If you have natural breasts, then more than likely one is bigger than the other. If you are undergoing a breast lift, breast implants can help to create symmetry, so your breasts are equal in size and shape. They can also restore or add fullness to breasts that have lost volume following pregnancy or nursing. Not everyone that undergoes a breast lift is in need of breast implants though as some women with overly large breasts can achieve proportionate fuller breasts with only a lift. The decision to combine the two procedures is purely personal and individual depending on your wants and needs.
