Upper Pole Fullness

I am wondering if it is common for breast lift and augmentation patients to receive different results than patients with just augmentation? While I have MUCH more upper pole fullness now after my surgery, it is still FAR less than I see with patients who only have the implants. Is going with a larger implant a possible solution, or is this just a fact of my body now?

  • This is a very insightful question.  Thanks for asking it.  Most women who are having an aug-mastopexy have more existing breast tissue (which may be why it dropped over time with gravity).  In order to look more like the aug patient, you need a higher implant to breast ratio.  You are correct that a bigger implant would help.  Another option is to do a blend of augmentation/reduction.  With almost every aug-pexy we do here, we remove some of the bottom portion of the breast to reduce that heavy look.  Hope this helped!


    I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
