|Q: I like my breast size, but I don't like the way they sag. What can be done?
A: If you're happy with your breast size but want the shape improved, a breast lift (mastopexy) could be done. During a breast lift, the excess skin is removed from the breast so the nipples are in a more "pert" position on the fuller shaped breast.
Q: I don't like my breasts. They sag and they're too small, especially since my last pregnancy. Can implants change this?
A: Yes. Many women experience this after pregnancy. Frequently, the skin stretches and the breast tissue may actually shrink. Breast implants are a common solution to fill out loose skin and increase the breast volume. A breast lift would only be needed if there was too much loose skin for the implant to fill.
Q: I want breast implants but I think I also may need to have my breasts lifted. Can this be done at the same time?
A: Yes. Some women's breasts sag so much that a breast implant would not be enough to fill the loose skin. A breast lift can be done at the same time to remove the remaining excess skin and improve breast contour.
Q: Where are the incisions for a breast lift?
A: The incision could be just around the nipple, in a vertical line below the nipple and/or breast crease. Where the incisions are will vary depending on the amount of loose skin present.
Q: My breasts are small and slightly saggy. Is it possible that breast implants could fill the skin so I don't need a breast lift?
A: Yes. If your nipples are not too far below the level of the breast crease, you may be able to regain the fuller, pert breast appearance of your youth by simply having breasts implants
