Found a rupture so now Wanting to go bigger, will I need a lift as well??

Hi, I have just found in an ultra sound breast check up that I have a ruptured left implant. And now have to consider revision. I have had these 500cc implants under muscle and placed through the armpit, Existing for 10years and I have breast feed my two children 7 and 4. Now I have to have revision, I am really wanting larger size 700 ultra high profile? as While I was breastfeeding I loved the big size so the 500cc now feel extremely small, and the fat roll under the arm bothers me. 166cm, 62kg, 10E was a 10B I'm not sure if the shape is from the rupture on side, or sagging as my left breast always had more milk, and the muscle pulls a bit on the left. I would like an opinion on whether I should be considering a lift, as well or is a bigger size sufficient to fill what I need for large round high profile look. ??? Thanks

    Hi Sylve,
    Thank you for your question.
    Looking at your images, and considering what you are wanting to achieve in terms of implant size, you should be able to have a 'remove and replace' without a lift.
    Kind regards,

Lift or just breast enlargement?

After breastfeeding for 4 yrs in total I've lost a lot of breast tissue and am looking at having Breast augmentation surgery. I'd like the enhanced look without looking overly "fake". I'd like to go up to a full E cup. Thank you in advance for any responses!

    Breast augmentation alone, especially if you are wanting to achieve that size.  There is some asymmetry, with the L inferior pole having more volume than the R, and this would need to be considered when deciding upon implant volumes. I would suggest use of an anatomical implant with dual-plane placement if you are wanting a natural appearance.
    Kind regards,

can an implant be done without a lift?

Hi. I have severely sagging breasts. I was wondering if implants without a lift would be possible? My breasts look large front on but side on there is nothing there. I am hoping to achieve a more 'boob' type shape but a lift is well outside what I can afford. Would any implant 'lift' or fill the area underneath my breasts as it's quite empty, all my volume is on top of my breasts. Would implants just make the shape worse?

    You require a lift.  This will reposition the breast tissue on your chest wall, hopefully giving you the look that you are aiming to achieve.
    Kind regards,

Lift? Or slightly bigger implants?

Hi, I'm super confused after having very different consultations. I want super natural and was thinking 275cc anatomical as a good size. 300cc felt too big in the sizers. First surgeon: 250-300cc anatomical Overs Second surgeon: Periareola lift (I was devastated) Motiva 295cc rounds Dual Plane I do not want a lift, I just don't think I'm prepared mentally for the extra procedure and scars. I discussed this with Surgeon 1 and he agreed I was borderline which was why he was pushing me to 300cc. He feels I will get a good outcome without the lift. I am worried the 300 are too big. To be honest, all the the sizers felt big! I'm just not used to having boobs I guess. I really don't know what to do. I want to stay within a c cup, but am worried I'll end up too big. I'm not expecting perky boobs of and 18yr old, but am scared I will have the 'snoopy boob' look due to the sag and low nipples? HELP

    I feel that a combination augmentation-mastopexy (lift) procedure is required.  Sometimes it is possible to 'lift' the breast with an augmentation procedure alone however the nipple and gland position needs to be favourable, and the patient has to be happy to have a large, moderate to high profile implant with a high cohesive gel content.  Your nipple and gland position appears to be 'borderline' in relation to the breast crease (IMF) position, meaning that even if you were to consider a large volume implant you may not achieve a desirable outcome with an implant alone.  Given the fact that you do not want to have large volume implants anyway I think a combination procedure is the only option available to you.
    Kind regards,
    Matthew
