Choosing The Right Breast Implants To Give You A Lift

Many women undergo breast augmentation and a breast lift (mastopexy) at the same time. Breast implants enlarge the size of your bustline while mastopexy rejuvenates your body contour to create a more youthful appearance. However, if you have sagging breasts, did you know that a breast lift isn’t always necessary to achieve the improvement you want? This means that you won’t have the longer scars that a breast lift often involves, which is one of the biggest concerns for women considering the procedure. You will only have the smaller, less noticeable scarring related to breast augmentation. In fact, 95% of our patients who have been properly selected for this are satisfied with the amount of lift they achieve with implants!

Our Plastic Surgeons can help you address mild to moderate sagging with breast augmentation alone. They do this by taking into account the size you’d like to be and the amount of lift you require during the pre-surgery planning process.

THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS FOR A BREAST AUGMENTATION-ONLY LIFT

We consider these three things to help give you the extra lift you require to make your breasts “perkier” without mastopexy:

  • During your breast augmentation, the breast implants will be placed directly under the breast tissue and above the chest wall muscle (in the sub-mammary position).
  • The best breast implants to use for a perkier result contain silicone gel that is more cohesive, such as the Allergan Inspira Truform 2 (formerly known as Soft-Touch gel). These implants are slightly firmer to maintain their shape better, but still retain their natural feel.
  • The shape of your breast implants should have more, rather than less, projection. Breast implants with a smaller base width will make your breasts project more forward from your chest wall and body, creating a more prominent contour. “Profile” is a synonym for projection, therefore look for high profile implants.

Generally speaking, larger breast implants can also help give a better lift, sometimes raising the position of the nipple by one or two centimetres.
