Will a Bigger Implant Replace the Need for a Breast Lift?


Larger breast implants can produce a fuller look, but alone may not be enough to address ptosis (sagging) of breast tissue. Of course, the placement of your breast implants will play a role in this. Larger implants placed above the muscles in the chest require more natural tissue to provide coverage. This can, in some cases, give the appearance of a lift without the addition of mastopexy. However, as with all aspects of breast surgery, this will vary completely from woman to woman.

As an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Corey is well equipped to determine which procedure or combination of procedures is ideal in every situation. If breast implants alone can produce the look you desire, Dr. Corey will suggest breast augmentation. On the other hand, if you could benefit from both lift and volume enhancement, Dr. Corey will recommend mastopexy with implants. The best way to learn which of these options is ideal for your body is by calling our Scottsdale office at 480-767-7700 to set up a consultation.

Individualized Care

Dr. Corey takes great pride in providing each of our patients with personal attention and individualized care. What is right for one breast surgery is often not right at all for the next, making it important that each patient is listened to carefully and thoughtfully, and each procedure is customized to meet specific needs. Will a bigger implant take the place of a breast lift? Perhaps. But the best way to determine for sure is through a confidential and informative consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon.
