Patients with loose, sagging breasts may want to consider a breast lift in addition to their breast implants to achieve the best results. It is recommended to schedule a consultation with your surgeon to have a physical exam and discuss your goals to make an informed decision. Board certified plastics surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide breast augmentation and breast lift to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations.
Breast Lift Considerations
After breast implants are placed into the chest, the skin must be adjusted to cover them. To achieve an attractive outcome, the nipple should be positioned in the center of the implants. If there is an abundance of skin and the breasts are sagging, the implant may not be able to raise the nipple to the correct position and a breast lift may be necessary.
A breast augmentation, with or without a breast lift, is a procedure that is done on an outpatient basis and is done while a patient is under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make small incisions in areas that are concealed, such as below the natural fold of the breast or around the areola, and will insert the implants into the chest. If a breast lift is also desired, the surgeon will make the necessary incisions to trim away excess skin. The nipple and areola are then adjusted to the center of the breasts and the incisions are closed up.
How do I know if I need a lift?
A sign that you may benefit from a breast lift is if your nipples naturally rest beneath the crease beneath your breasts. Having a physical exam and consulting with your surgeon is the best way to decide if you will require a breast lift in addition to your implants. Board certified plastics surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide breast augmentation and breast lift to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations.
