Do Implants Lift the Breasts?

Shapeless, sagging breasts are a problem for many women. Whether they are the result of significant weight fluctuation, multiple pregnancies or the effects of gravity and aging, sagging breasts can hamper a woman’s self-image and confidence.

So, what is the solution to sagging breasts? Are breast implants the answer? Dr. Ary Krau, an authority on breast surgery in South Florida, addresses these questions.

It Is Possible, But Not Recommended

The simple answer is yes, breast implants can lift the breasts. However, this is only possible in a very small number of cases, where the sagging is minimal and the nipple-areola complex is in a good position (well above the breast fold).

Breast implants may help create the appearance of a slight lift by filling out the upper “pole” of the breasts, and stretching and filling out loose skin. However, this is just an illusion and does not provide any real lift or tightening.

A Better Solution Is Breast Lift

The more effective and comprehensive solution to flat, sagging breasts is mastopexy, a.k.a. breast lift.

During breast lift surgery, loose skin is removed and the tissue is reshaped higher on the chest wall to form the breast mound. The remaining skin is wrapped tightly around the tissue to create a more attractive breast shape and position. The nipple-areolar complex is also relocated higher on the breast mound, to recreate the appearance of a youthful and perky breast.

For women desiring breasts that are bigger, fuller and perkier, breast implants can be placed during the breast lift procedure. Combination breast lift with implants simultaneously lifts and fills out the breasts.
