Restore youthful lift and volume.
For women who desire to add lift, shape, firmness, and volume to their breasts, Christine Petti, MD can perform a breast lift combined with the addition of breast implants. This procedure, which is also called a breast augmentation mastopexy (BAM), can be ideal for women whose breasts have changed as a result of pregnancy, aging, and/or weight loss. While the breast lift portion of the procedure can remove excess skin, reposition the nipples, and elevate the breasts, breast implants enhance the size and shape of the breasts. The ultimate goal of a breast lift with implants is to fully rejuvenate the appearance of the breasts to achieve a more youthful, shapely, and proportionate bustline.
Candidates for a Breast Lift with Implants
If you are concerned about the changing size, shape, and firmness of your breasts, you are not alone. Many women become unsatisfied with the appearance of their breasts as they age. Fluctuations in volume over time often cause breast skin to stretch and lose elasticity, creating a droopy appearance. Furthermore, when breast and fat tissue volume diminishes and does not return, perky breasts can become deflated and lose their youthful fullness and firmness. Candidates for a breast lift with implants typically wish to restore lost volume, address skin laxity, and elevate the position of the breasts on the chest wall. For these women, a traditional breast augmentation or a breast lift would not address all of their cosmetic concerns or achieve their desired outcome.
Many women who choose a breast lift with implants are mothers who have had one or more children. Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight may also be good candidates for this procedure. Ideal candidates will be in good overall health, eat a nutritious diet, and exercise regularly. The best way to determine your candidacy for a breast lift with implants is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Petti.
