There are many factors to consider when having a breast lift. One of which is whether to add volume with breast implants or not. A breast lift without implants tends to result in breasts with the volume positioned somewhat inferiorly – meaning rather low. For many patients, there isn’t a reliable way to create lasting volume at the top of the breasts, without implants. For women with volume loss and sagginess, implants are usually the right choice. On the other hand, patients with very full, firm breasts may be able to achieve their desired outcome without implants.
The decision as to whether to get implants at the same time as a breast lift takes some consideration. Call us at (916) 983-9895 or contact us online to learn if combining a breast lift with implants could be right for you.
When Dr. Kaufman performs breast lifts, he reduces excess skin and repositions breast volume. Generally, Dr. Kaufman feels that simultaneous breast lift and implant placement is a good approach for those who have droopy tissue and want youthful, perky breasts with fullness on top. For women with very saggy breasts or significant asymmetry, it may be safest to plan a two-stage procedure.
Should you elect to have a breast lift without breast augmentation and decide, down the road, that you want larger breasts or more volume at the top, it’s possible to choose breast implants at a later date.
