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!
