I'm planning to remove my 345-375cc silicone subglandular implants. Do I need a lift or could I still have a good result without one?

Thanks for your question. Looking at your photograph you already have some degree of ptosis and removal of implants will cause further deflation and sagging. Removal of the implants is not a decision you will regret - and it allows some of your native breast volume to recover. My patients who worry they will not be left with sufficient volume are often surprised once they have let things settle. I would think you will need a breast lift and while this could be performed down the track (definitely best results when you stage operations), that can increase costs, and inconvenience of two operations. Speak to your surgeon about the pros and cons. Best wishes
I’m a healthy 39 years old asian and residing in Melbourne. I have a AA cup and wanted to ask for advice. I’m wondering the optimal age to do breast augmentation and whether it’s too late for me at this age. I’m 39 but fortunately I look like less than 30 and nobody can guess my age correctly. Please advice the suitable implants. The most thing that I concern about is the future of post surgery such as complication after years.Im keen to do it but this issue worries me a lot.

Thanks for your question Ming. There is no such thing as being too old for this sort of an operation and you will likely get a good result from breast augmentation as your skin quality is good. When there is little native breast to hide or provide shape to the underlying implant my suggestion would be an anatomical implant in a dual plane. However you must know the downsides of implants - they are foreign objects and therefore have a life span, can rupture/rotate/ripple. There is a possibility of complications as with any operation. Discuss with the surgeon you choose to see, and they will go through the pros and cons before you make an informed decision. Best wishes.
