Signs You Need a Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation

A breast lift with augmentation is a combination procedure done at the same time to correct the position of the breasts as well as the projection and volume of your breasts. Augmentation alone will not correct breast positioning of sagging breasts and a lift is needed in conjunction. A breast lift is needed when implants alone will not re-position the nipple onto the correct portion of the implant. The goal is to have the nipple be placed in the center of the implant and when undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, sometimes a lift is necessary to achieve that perfect position while still achieving fullness from the implants. Here are 3 signs you need a breast lift with breast augmentation…

  1. You have sagging breasts and want to achieve perkier, fuller breasts.
  2. Your nipples and areolas point downward, and your aesthetic goals involve repositioning of the nipples as well as fuller breast size.
  3. You have decreased breast volume at the top of your breasts, and you want to increase that as well as lift your breasts to a higher position on your chest.

Breast lifts with augmentation can also be used to correct asymmetry. If one breast sits lower than the other, a lift can be utilized to make the breasts appear symmetrical by positioning them evenly on the chest and shaping them as identically as possible.
