Want augmentation

I’m 44, and a registered nurse.  I just retired from the military after 20 years, got married to the love of my life and want my outside to match how happy I am inside! 2 kids nursed and my boobs are empty. I don’t want a lift if I can avoid it because of nipple sensitivity preservation. I’m ok with going way bigger if it will save me the lift. I’m currently a saggy 36 B. I was a perky full 36C before kids. Advice?

    Welcome! Do you have any wish pics to show your desired end result?

    • Alicia I think I’m ok with being a little saggy if I could gain back my fullness on top. I’ll look for some photos. Thanks for the reply

  • Hi!  I think it depends on your desired outcome.  My surgeon told me to expect my same boobs but bigger.  I didn’t need a lift but he was exactly right so essentially if you just did an implant it would be what you are working with but just significantly larger.  I have moderates because I wanted them to look as natural as possible so they are wider and flatter than a high profile would be.  Depending on your bwd, you could potentially get a high profile implant that would increase the fullness at the top of your breast but the bottom will stay exactly where it is without a lift.  Again, it all depends entirely on the look you are going for!  Like, Alicia said, do you have wish pics?  That might help us give better input!

  • I opted for no lift as well ... I didn’t have a problem ( and don’t now) with the location of my nipples ... I was a deflated C and went with 375cc unders and feel I should have went bigger to fill in the skin better .....I’m 6 mos post op and am still numb on my left nipple and my right is uncomfortable sensitive..... which baffles me as I didn’t have alift

  • You could get a lift and even areola reduction and still maintain nipple sensitivity.  What is most likely to cause loss of sensitivity is implant size.  The nerve that causes sensitivity runs along the lateral edge of the breast. So if it is compressed by an implant that is too large it may cause loss of nipple sensation. I hope that made sense.

  • I think an ultra/high profile will help fill out the breast & lessen the need for a lift because of how much space those 2 profiles take up in the upper pole of the breasts. Ultra/High profile project out more than width-wise compared to moderate/moderate plus.

  • I too was a perky 36C in my younger years, but pre op I was a droopy 36b.  I went with 500cc mentor hp silicone under the muscle.  My PS said I was bordering on needing a lift but I was able to do without one. Phew!

  • I just had an anchor lift with a BA and I was open minded to a lift vs no lift and overall it made sense to me that to achieve my goal boobs they would have to do a lift. I had deflated Ds though so lots of breast tissue. I'm glad I did it though because the end result turned out so good!! If I'm spending that kind of money I definitely want the best outcome hehe. I'm curious to see your goal pictures and see what a ps says in your consult!!

  • I think lift or no lift it can still alter your nipple sensitivity. I did just a BA and in my right side I do sometimes feel numb or very very sensitive. I’m only 12 weeks PO and it’s getting much better. (it’s nothing that I can’t live with) but if you go to a reputable surgeon you’ll have good odds of not losing sensitivity. Good Luck! :)
