After a pregnancy or after a significant weight loss are very popular times for Boston women to consider breast augmentation and a breast lift. These life events cause inevitable loss of volume in the breast that can leave behind droopy or saggy breasts. These side-effects of life may not be avoidable, but they are treatable with a breast augmentation paired with a breast lift. The most important factor when considering breast augmentation surgery is the qualification of your Boston plastic surgeon to perform this procedure.
Women who have experienced pregnancy often times complain that their breasts never seem as “full” as before pregnancy. Loss of breast volume leaves breasts looking deflated and flat. In this case, breast augmentation via breast implants would successfully refill “scooped- out” looking breasts to a more voluptuous appearance.
Boston plastic surgeons may also recommend a breast lift along with your breast augmentation if the nipple drops below the inframammary fold of the breast. The dropping of the nipple below the breast crease is also a result of aging and or significant weight loss. If your breasts are the exact size and shape you want them to be in the bra, you may only need a breast lift. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, even inside of the bra, you may want a breast augmentation accompanied by a breast lift.
