There are several reasons why a woman’s breasts may begin to sag. Age, gravity, pregnancy, and lack of support – just to name a few. This change in the breasts may also cause them to appear smaller than they did years ago. A breast lift from Neaman Plastic Surgery can help restore their pertness giving them a young and perky appearance. But, is it necessary to get implants if you are getting your breasts lifted?

What is a Breast Lift?

Let’s start by discussing what exactly a breast lift does? A breast lift, also called mastopexy, is a procedure that repositions the nipples while aligning pendulous breasts to achieve a higher and lifted chest profile. During a breast lift, excess skin and tissue are removed so the remaining breast skin can be tightened to help firm and reshape the breasts.

Will You Need Implants?

Breast implants are commonly inserted during a breast lift to achieve a fuller contour; however, it isn’t always necessary. Sometimes, Salem plastic surgeons Dr. Keith Neaman and Dr. Dustin Christiansen are able to actually enhance the size of your original breasts by lifting them higher and reshaping them. Many women are satisfied with their new appearance without altering their size. Other women find that they lack sufficient breast tissue once the excess skin is removed, so implants are necessary to give them a proportionate bustline.

How Do I Decide, Breast Lift, Breast Implants or Both?

The best way for you to decide if breast implants combined with your breast lift will give you the contour results you are looking to achieve is to schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons, either Dr. Neaman or Dr. Christiansen. Together, you will discuss your cosmetic goals, and they will be able to assess your profile and give you an idea of what results you could expect with both options by looking at before and after photos.

breast lift, with and without implants, can help to restore your full, perky appearance along with your confidence. If you’re considering a breast lift and want to know if including breast implants is right for you and your frame, contact Neaman Plastic Surgery and schedule your consultation today!
