Re:Breast lift vs Augmentation
Wednesday, October 10, 2012 4:24 PM
Hi Diane. Thank you for your question. Loss of fullness in the breasts is common after a person has lost a lot of weight. From your description, it seems like you would benefit from undergoing a mastopexy (breast lift)
. A breast lift
is fundamentally different from breast augmentation because it is intended to enhance the shape
of the breast and not the size. A breast lift
raises and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning the remaining tissue and nipples to improve its appearance. I would definitely suggest you seek the opinion of a board certified plastic surgeon
who is experienced in performing breast lifts and breast augmentations. Before choosing your surgeon, I also recommend you look at his/her before- and after-photos of the type of procedure you want to undergo. That way you will have a better idea of the results you may be able to expect.
I hope this information helps. Let us know what you decide to do. If you undergo a breast lift, we would love to hear about your experience.
*Always seek the advice of your plastic surgeon, physician, or other qualified health care professional concerning treatment of your specific medical condition.
