Can a Breast Lift be Done Without Implants?

Age along with pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a major toll on your breasts. The breasts that you remember from your 20s are sadly no more, turning into a deflated and sagging reminder of the perky bustline you once had. Fortunately, a breast lift at Pollard Plastic Surgery can help combat some of the effects age and life have had on your breasts. One of the most common questions we are asked is whether or not a breast lift can be done without implants. Simple answer, yes!

Tighten and Raise with a Breast Lift

A breast lift is designed to remove excess skin and lift the breast and nipple to a higher and more pleasing position. Often times with age, gravity takes effect, and breast skin begins to become loose and lax causing the breasts to sag. A breast lift simply perks the breasts back up.

It is common to combine a breast lift with breast implants; however, not everyone that needs a breast lift is in need of breast implants. During a breast lift, the native breast tissue is reshaped and molded, sometimes giving the breast contour a fuller-looking appearance, almost as if you added volume. This alone may give you the breast size that you desire and are comfortable with, eliminating the need for breast implants

For women who want to add volume to their chest or for those who have a more deflated appearance, they may be better served by adding an implant. Breast implants can reduce excess breast skin and tissue while adding volume and increase firmness. A breast lift adds to the procedure by eliminating loose skin.

The important thing to remember when deciding to have a breast lift, breast implants or any other cosmetic procedure, you must do what is right for you. No two people are alike and what is right for someone else may not be what you desire. Breast augmentation is a very personal decision and one that should be made with careful thought and consideration. Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Emily Pollard will help you determine whether you just need a breast lift or if you would be better off adding breast implants to your procedure.
