In some cases, patients seeking breast augmentation may also need to undergo breast lift to achieve desired results. The best way to determine whether you would benefit from breast lift in addition to implants is to have a consultation and examination with your surgeon. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides breast augmentation to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Breast Lift Considerations
During breast augmentation, the implants are inserted into the patient’s chest and the skin is repositioned over it. When the skin is repositioned, the nipple should ideally be as centered over the implant as possible. If the patient has loose, sagging skin that cannot be lifted enough by the implant alone, a breast lift is required to correctly position the breasts and nipples for the best looking results.
Breast augmentation is usually performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. During surgery, small incisions are made in discrete areas, such as under the fold of the breast. The implants are then placed into the chest, either above or below the muscle. If the breasts need to be lifted, your surgeon will trim excess skin away from the appropriate areas and reposition the nipple and areola. The incisions are then closed and your procedure is completed.
How do I know if I need a lift?
If your nipple naturally rests beneath the fold of your breast, you may benefit from a breast lift. The best way to determine whether you will need a lift with your breast implants will be to schedule a consultation to be examined by your surgeon.
