Can I Receive a Breast Lift Without Implants?
The straightforward answer to this question is “yes” – you can certainly receive a breast lift without implants. Also known as mastopexy, breast lift surgery is a popular procedure designed to elevate the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest wall. During the operation, breast tissues (along with the nipple position) are lifted and reshaped to achieve a more balanced, “perky” appearance. However, it’s important to understand that although mastopexy can lift and recontour the breasts for a more desirable shape and projection, the procedure will not increase the volume of the breasts; only breast implants can do this.
In my practice, I find that many women considering a breast lift also desire to enlarge the size of their breasts to some degree, which is the reason numerous patients choose to receive a mastopexy with implants. Often performed during a single procedure, a breast lift with implants can not only raise and augment the breasts, it can also help create a fuller shape, better cleavage, more youthful firmness, and an enhanced overall outcome for qualified patients.
Ultimately, a breast lift without implants or a mastopexy with implants can both achieve excellent breast enhancement results for the right individuals. For this reason, I strongly advise anyone considering breast lift surgery to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can help determine which option may be most appropriate for their unique needs and aesthetic desires.
