Droopy Breasts: Are Breast Implants or a Breast Lift Best for Me?

Got sag? If you have breasts, you’ve likely experienced some sagging, or will soon in the future. Breast sagging is practically inevitable, especially after pregnancy. If you have droopy breasts, come see us. Cosmetic surgery can restore and perfect the appearance of your breasts.

Do I Need Breast Implants?

Breast augmentation is one of the top cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S., year after year. During the procedure, a saline or silicone implant is placed into the breast. This adds volume and can improve breast shape. Results last as long as you have the implant in place, often for many years.
Breast augmentation may be right for you if:
• You want to increase your breast size.
• You want to correct breast asymmetry.
• You have lost breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss.
Breast augmentation is a top choice for many patients, but it isn’t right for everyone. On its own, it does not correct sagging, but is an excellent option for increasing size.

Do I Need a Breast Lift?

If you have sagging, you need a breast lift. A lift is the only way to remove excess skin and restore a more youthful breast shape. Put implants in sagging breasts and you’ll get bigger, saggy breasts. With a breast lift we can reshape and reform the breasts for a truly rejuvenated appearance.
A breast lift may be right for you if:
• You have breast sagging.
• You want to rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy or breastfeeding.
One quick, at-home test for determining if you need a breast lift is to look at the nipple’s position relative to the breast fold. If your nipple is below the fold, you definitely need a lift. A breast lift on its own does not increase breast size, just repositions breast tissue for similarly sized, rejuvenated breasts, typically close to how your current breasts look in a bra.

Breast Lift + Breast Implants- Do I Need Both?

Increase size and reduce sagging with one trip to the operating room. If you have sagging, but also want implants, we can pair a breast lift and breast augmentation together. Choose a lift with implants if:
• You want to increase size and correct sagging.
• You have both breast asymmetry and sagging.
