Patients seeking breast augmentation may need to consider a breast lift in addition to their primary surgery to achieve the aesthetic results they are wanting. To help determine whether you should have a breast lift with your implants for best results, it is recommended that you have a physical exam with your surgeon. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast augmentation and breast lift to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Why Would I Need a Breast Lift?
When breast implants are inserted into the chest, the skin must be re-adjusted to cover them. To achieve the best-looking results, the nipple should be centered as much as possible over the implants. If the breasts have excessive skin and hang downward, the implant may be unable to lift the nipple to the appropriate spot and a breast lift could be necessary.
Breast augmentation, with or without a breast lift, is a surgery done on an outpatient basis while the patient is under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make small incisions in hidden places, such as beneath the natural fold of the breast or around the areola, and then insert the implants into the chest. If you are also opting for a breast lift, the surgeon will decide which portions of excess skin on the breasts should be removed and make the appropriate incisions, followed by the removal of the skin. The nipple and areola will then be shifted to the new position on the breast and the incisions will be closed.
How do I know if I need a lift?
If the nipples rest underneath the crease beneath your breasts, it could suggest you would benefit from a breast lift. Seeking the opinion of your surgeon is the best way to determine if a breast lift is necessary for addition to the implant procedure.
