Submitted by Q-A from clee on Wed, 06/15/2011 - 03:02

i am 26 years old, 136 pounds, and 5'2" with a 450cc breast augment. my breasts just seem too saggy and i am unhappy with them. i want a lift to perk them up and would like to know what lift would be recommended.

A: Nipple position is not improved by breast augmentation

Sagging with low nipple position on the breast mound is not improved with breast augmentation. Depending on the degree of descent of your nipple a breast lift may offer improvement to your breast appearance.

after babies and i guess aging :( my breasts sag more than i'd like. is breast lift or plastic surgery my only option for getting them perked up again?

A: Surgery is the only effective method

Surgery is the only effective method to lift sagging breasts. If your nipple position is low, then correction will require some method of breast lift. When combined with a breast implant and augmentation, the technique of breast lift can usually be adjusted to yield a reasonably well concealed scar.

I am 18 years old and i am looking for advice in what would be the best procedure for a "Breast Lift". im not looking to get implants i am happy with the size and firmness of my breast i just need a lift to enhance what i already have and im looking for an opinion of what would be the best procedure for my type of sagging.

A: Vertical mastopexy is a good choice

Based on the provided photo it looks as though you would be a great candidate for a vertical breast lift. This surgery would improve the shape of your breasts and the size of your areolae. Additionally, this surgery will likely not interfere with your sensation and your ability to lactate. For best results contact a board certified surgeon.

I Have Had my Implants Aprox 4 Years I Got 390cc with a Lift Done I Want Them Removed Will I Still Sag Even with the Lift I Had?

A: Depends on your residual breast tissue

Following implant removal, sagging might occur if the size of implants is vastly larger than your normal breasts, if you have lost weight, if you had children, amount of breast tissue you have, your skin elasticity, and aging.

Im 20 and hate my breasts. The nipples point down and I have large arola with blue green veins. What should I do??

What if you decided to explant? Will your breasts sag?

Sagging will occur based on the following:

  • - the size of the implants relative to your normal breast size

  • - if you had children

  • - skin elasticity
  • - and aging

You may want to consider breast lift (mastopexy) if breast do turnout saggy after removal of implants. Please consult your plastic surgeon.

Q: 3 Months Post BA and Anchor Lift: Will a Lollipop Lift Help Saggy Breasts?

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Fri, 05/13/2011 - 13:07

I had a BA and anchor lift on 1/12/11. My rt breast developed a capsular contracture and my left breast is falling into my arm pit and is flat in the upper pole and the bottom is flat and pointy and ugly. My right breast has the CC but at least it has upper fullness. Both are still saggy. My PS agreed to do a lollipop lift for free in his office under a local. If I want the CC removed I have to pay $2400 for hosp/anesthesia fees only. Do you think a lift will help and is it ok to ignore CC?

A: Based on your photos I suspect the implants are submuscular...

Submuscular implants with mastopexy are challenges for recurrent double bubble and waterfall deformity as the breast descent is common while the submuscluar implant is trapped high by the muscle.

Perhaps you should consider having this addressed by implant exchange into submammary position with cohesive gel and a redo mastopexy.

I am not in favor of simply a mastopexy in the office.
