Do Breast Lifts Require Implants?

A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that corrects breast sagging and ptosis. In many cases, patients choose to combine a breast lift with breast implants for fuller and perkier breasts. Sometimes, breast lift results can make the breasts look bigger. Due to this, patients occasionally ask, “Do breast lifts require implants?”The answer is no. Patients who undergo a breast lift do not have to have breast implants placed. A breast lift simply removes extra skin and unnecessary tissue to create a perkier breast. Breast sagging can occur for many reasons including age, nursing, pregnancy, and genetics. This leads many people to seek out breast lift surgery.Most patients who have a breast lift are good candidates for breast augmentation as well. If patients want breast implants along with a breast lift, the implants can be added through the same incisions as your breast lift. It also forgoes the need for two surgical sessions by combining the two procedures together. A breast lift and breast augmentation can complement each other spectacularly. The two procedures can create a more youthful breast appearance and restore the breasts to previous fullness and shape. To schedule a consultation at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561.
