“Often when I ask a patient what it is about her breasts that bothers her, she will tell me that her breasts are droopy. Yet, when I examine her breasts, they are not droopy at all. Instead, they lack or have lost fullness in the upper part of the breasts,” explains Charles Slack, MD.
For Plastic Surgeons, droopiness, also referred to as ptosis, is when part of the lower portion of the breast hangs below the natural breast fold. A breast lift is designed to remove the extra skin that allows the breast to hang down below the fold and to elevate the nipple to a higher, more youthful position. Unfortunately, breast lifts usually don’t restore upper breast fullness to the degree most patients desire. To achieve better upper breast fullness, an implant is often needed. Another misconception is that breast implants alone will lift breasts. In certain instances where the nipple is above the fold and there is only a small amount of droopiness, an implant can create the “appearance” of lifting the breast, but it really does not lift the breast. These two procedures are often performed together to create the look that a patient wants. Another benefit of combing a breast lift procedure with breast augmentation, is that it will save you money as well as time in surgery and recovery.

WHY BREAST LIFT WITH AUGMENTATION?
Breast tissue changes over time just like everything else in life. Loss of elasticity can cause the breasts to take on a deflated, uneven, or sagging look due to:
- Weight changes
Breast lift with augmentation can restore the youthful appearance of your breast tissue while providing you needed volume. Your results will be firmer, fuller, lifted breasts with more symmetry.
By having both procedures performed during one cosmetic surgery, you will also save on the cost of anesthesia and reduce your downtime, which means fewer days away from work.
