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

Droopy breasts can happen to any women. It doesn’t just happen to women who had multiple pregnancies or who lost massive weight. Saggy breasts can also occur to women who have small breasts. Several factors that contribute to droopy breasts include and are not limited to age, genetics, and lifestyle. Indeed, it can happen to anyone, whether you have zero or nine children.

Thankfully, women can still restore their once youthful, perky breasts surgically. If you’re unhappy with your droopy breasts, a breast enhancement surgery can fix all that. Of course, the right breast surgery is the key to achieving your aesthetic desires.

When it comes to the rejuvenation of the breasts, most women are confused whether to get breast implants or a breast lift. The best way to determine if you need implants or a lift is to see a board-certified plastic surgeon at the Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville. Our surgeons will evaluate your special case and create a customized treatment plan that will best suit your needs.

Breast Implants or Breast Lift

Generally, there are basic ways to determine whether you need implants or just a lift. For you to decide which one you will consult our surgeons for, it helps to understand what each procedure does.

A breast lift, also called mastopexy, surgically lifts saggy breasts so they are perky and youthful. It also repositions the nipples and the areolas high on the chest wall. This procedure is perfect for women whose only issue is droopy breasts and not breast volume.

On the other hand, breast implants, as the name suggests, are for women who want to increase their breast size surgically. While it can also rejuvenate the appearance of breasts, breast augmentation cannot correct saggy breasts.

Therefore, if you’re still satisfied with your breast size and just want to lift your breasts, then you can be satisfied with just a breast lift. However, if you want to enlarge your breast size, while also lifting them, you can benefit from both procedures.

If you can’t decide which is best for you, stand in front of a mirror and take a look at your chest. By taking a good look at yourself, you can assess whether a lift or implants will help reach your desired results. Once you determine what surgery you want, you can then schedule a consultation with one of our doctors for further guidance.
