When considering breast augmentation, it’s common for patients to ask whether they will also need a breast lift to obtain the results they desire. To best determine this, it is recommended to have a consultation and physical exam with your surgeon. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides breast augmentation and breast lift to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Breast Lift Considerations
When breast implants are placed into the chest, the surrounding skin must be repositioned to cover them. For best aesthetic results, the nipple should be positioned as centered as possible over the implants. If the breasts have too much excess skin and sag or droop, the implant may not lift the nipple to the correct position and a breast lift may be required.
Breast augmentation, with or without breast lift, is an outpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, your surgeon will make small incisions in concealed areas, such as beneath the natural fold of the breast or around the areola, and place the breast implants in the chest. If you are seeking a breast lift as well, your surgeon will determine which areas of your breasts require excision, make the appropriate incisions, and remove excess skin. The nipple and areola are then repositioned on the breast and the incisions are sealed.
How do I know if I need a lift?
An indication that you may benefit from a breast lift is if your nipples rest below the natural fold beneath your breasts. Having an examination with your surgeon is the best way to determine whether you will need a breast lift in addition to your implants.
