BREAST LIFT

breast-lift-necessary_133764354Oftentimes, after having babies and/or breast feeding, the breasts can deflate a bit and droop. In order to determine if a lift is needed, a thorough physical exam must be performed.

By checking the position of the nipple in relation to the rest of the breast, a board certified plastic surgeon can determine if that surgery is needed. Basically, if the nipple is below the majority of the breast, a lift is probably needed. If it is just slightly below the breast, potentially a specialized technique used when placing the implant can be adequate to simulate a lift. Some plastic surgeons believe that placing a bigger implant can also give a bit of a lift. I tend to think this gives a “larger” appearance and not necessarily a “perkier” appearance.
