40 year old Female | Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy
This patient receiveed 425cc moderate plus profile smooth round silicone gel implant on the right and 450cc moderate plus profile smooth round silicone implant on the left.
A breast augmentation increases the volume of the breast while a breast lift elevates the nipple and areola to a more youthful position on the breast and tightens loose skin. While a breast implant will help fill loose and deflated skin on the breast, it will not correct a breast with significant droopiness on its own. A good rule of thumb is that if the nipple lies below the level of the lower breast fold, a breast lift will be needed – with or without implants – to provide an optimal result.
