Adding Implants to Your Breast Lift
Adding breast implants to your breast lift surgery is a surprisingly simple process; in fact, most plastic surgeons are able to do it all within the same procedure.
Your plastic surgeon will place the implant first, as it can affect nipple positioning during the subsequent lift. Once the implant has been positioned underneath the muscle, your plastic surgeon will reshape the breast tissue, remove excess skin, and reposition the nipple for a perkier appearance.
How to Tell If You Should Add Implants to Your Breast Lift
If you’re not sure if you should incorporate implants with your breast lift, these signs can help you with your decision:
- You feel like your breasts have been drooping, but in addition to correcting sagging, you want to add more volume to your breast size.
- You don’t want to lose any volume after your breast lift (sometimes breasts can appear slightly smaller after the lift, especially if skin needs to be removed).
- You’re done having children.
- You want to correct the appearance of asymmetrical breasts.

What Results Can I Expect to See?
Results can vary from patient to patient, but in general, you should expect to see perkier, more youthful-looking breasts. Your bust size will also increase, so get ready to rock your favorite tank tops and dresses.
Keep in mind that final results may not be visible for about three to six months, as you may have minor swelling and bruising that changes as your breasts heal and adapt to their new shape.
I’m an active mom to two wonderful children who I nursed each to 14 months and while I’m so happy I was able to do that for my children it left my breasts very deflated and saggy with loose skin! I’m 5’5″, 125 lbs with an athletic build so my end goal is to look as natural as possible and to gain volume and shape similar to what I used to be before kids. I’m nervous and excited for this change, but will hope for the best outcome possible!
