Dr. Baker Breast Aug case PM A significant number of women, especially those who have been pregnant, lost major amounts of weight, or are older than 35, will have some degree of breast ptosis when they seek out a breast augmentation. Natural changes in the elasticity of your breast tissue can result in an empty or deflated breast appearance that can be improved with breast augmentation.

However, implants cannot provide the improvement you need if you have moderate or severe breast sagging. These are the top 3 reasons you should combine a breast lift with your breast augmentation.

1. More Attractive Breasts

If you have sagging at the time of your breast augmentation, leaving it untreated can end with poor results. A breast lift can help reposition the nipple-areola complex for more natural-looking breasts. While your results may initially look fine, within months you may start to notice the tissue creating a “waterfall” appearance off the breasts or skin accumulating under the implants. These effects can draw attention to the shape of your implants, contributing to an unattractive appearance.

2. Longer-Lasting Results

Breast sagging is caused by weakened breast tissue. You will find that if this sagging tissue isn’t lifted and provided additional support, your breast results will change over time. Sagging that worsens over time can result in double bubble deformity, implants that bottom out, or other implant malposition issues. A breast lift that improves the quality of your breast tissue can help ensure beautiful results that last for years.

3. A Single, One-Time Procedure

Combining procedures might eliminate the need for a secondary revision surgery down the road. Revision surgery can be costly, time consuming, and in some cases, more difficult. A single, one-time procedure can save you money in the long run and will only require one recovery period.

Discuss Your Breast Needs

If you feel that your breasts are drooping, bring it up with your surgeon. If your lower breast tissue sits at or below the inframammary line, or you have poorly positioned nipples, you should probably consider a combination procedure. You surgeon should evaluate your breasts during your consultation and make a recommendation for what type of procedure will benefit you the best.
