Many women are unhappy with their breasts as they get older. Gravity, skin laxity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss and many other factors can cause breasts to sag. Some women lose volume in their breasts, which can contribute to drooping. A breast lift procedure (mastopexy) can remove the excess skin and lift the breasts to a more youthful position, but it may not always achieve the desired appearance. For many women, a combination of breast lift and augmentation can create the youthful breasts they desire.
Breast Lift with Implants
For women who lost significant volume in their breast with age, or those who always wanted larger breasts, implants with a breast lift may be the right choice. A breast augmentation with implants alone will not remove excess skin and lift tissue, and a breast lift alone will not add volume. Combining the two procedures can create glorious results for those wanting fuller, lifted breasts – for some women, they may finally achieve the breasts they always wanted at a later stage in life.
Fat Transfer with Breast Lift
Another option for adding volume and lifting the breast tissue is combining a breast fat transfer with mastopexy. For women who do not want a significant increase in breast size, but do want to replace lost volume, this can be an ideal procedure. Not only is excessive skin removed and the breast tissue lifted, but fat is transferred into the breasts to give them more volume. Some of the benefits of combining these two procedures include:
- Liposuction in another area to harvest fat – lipo can shrink the abdomen, thighs or other area to contour the body
- Natural appearance – breast fat transfer looks and feels more natural than implants
- Increase breast size – the fat transfer can achieve an increase of about one cup size and improve the breast shape
