Breast Lift with Implants Surgery Patient – Case Study Saggy Breast
Breast surgery is all about achieving the optimal cup size for the patient, in combination with a shapely breast. At times, the breast tissue and particularly the height of the nipple may need to be altered and re-elevated in the form of a breast lift to achieve these goals. A breast lift alone isn’t always adequate to achieve a patients desired look. In these circumstances, it can be combined with a breast reduction to decrease cup size or a breast implant to increase the cup size. It is not uncommon for patients to have other procedures performed at the same time, such as a tummy tuck/ abdominoplasty – Case Study Saggy Breasts.
Breast lifts with implants are used to ensure that the nipple is located on the apex of the created breast mound and are often required when there has been significant sagging, impacting the breast shape and firmness. This can be a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding or weight loss. There are also conditions where the nipple will be located particularly low on the breast mound and these patients are also candidates for a breast lift.
The type of incision required depends on the degree of lift needed. A minimal lift involves an incision around the nipple or the areola. While a larger lift, may need a vertical incision down the front of the breast and this is what is commonly referred to as a “lollipop scar”. If a particularly large lift is needed and there is excess skin underneath the breast, an incision is added in the fold under the breast.
If the objective of breast surgery is the most aesthetic breast mound possible, and more volume is desired by the patient, then achieving that will require an individualised approach that may involve a breast reduction, a breast augmentation and one of a number of different breast lifts to locate the nipple on the top of the breast mound.
