When thinking about getting breast augmentation, many patients ask if they must also get a breast lift in order to get the desired outcome. The best way to determine this is to have a physical examination with your surgeon during your consultation. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast augmentation and breast lift to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Why Have a Breast Lift?
For the most aesthetically pleasing appearance, the nipples should be positioned in the middle of the breasts. Generally, when the procedure of breast augmentation is carried out, the implants help to lift the skin, allowing the nipples to stay centrally located. If the breasts have an excessive amount of skin, the nipples will be situated too low on the implants, giving an unbalanced look. Your surgeon may suggest a breast lift to ensure the best possible results.
Breast augmentation usually takes place on an outpatient basis while the patient is under general anesthesia. The surgeon will create tiny incisions, which are hidden such as below the crease of the breast or around the areola, and then place the implants into the chest. If the patient decides to also get a breast lift, the surgeon will establish which areas of the breasts have extra skin, cut away the skin, and re-locate the nipple and areola on the breast. Lastly, the incisions are sutured closed and the procedure is complete.
Do I Need a Breast Lift?
If your nipple is situated beneath the fold under the breast, it may be an indication that you require a breast lift. The most reliable method to determine whether you will require a breast lift along with your breast implants is to make an appointment with your surgeon and have a physical exam.
