Do You Need a Breast Lift and Implants?
Determining the right strategy for achieving the look you want depends on the issues you’re experiencing and your expectations. The details of your treatment plan can be discussed and refined during your consultation with Dr. Parkins. However, there are some general guidelines on who can benefit from these procedures.
Breast lifts are ideal for patients with loose skin that is causing breasts to droop. These patients also likely have a nipple position that falls below the natural breast crease. Enlarged nipple size, flat breast shape, and sagging breast position are all improved with a lift. Treatment involves removing excess skin and raising the breast on the chest wall.
The only issue not addressed with this procedure is breast volume and projection. If you are unsure whether you could benefit from a breast lift, try this simple at-home test: place a pencil in the breast crease. If it remains in place, it’s time for a mastopexy.
Breast augmentation is provided to help patients achieve the breast size they’ve always wanted. Treatment is individualized based on preferences, but implants generally change breast profile, projection, and overall volume.
When you’re experiencing lack of desired size and drooping breasts caused by aging, weight loss or pregnancy, a combination of both a lift and placement of implants can create the beautiful new breasts you want.

What Happens During a Breast Lift with Augmentation?
Your surgical plan is customized to your needs and the extent of concerns you are experiencing, such as the degree of breast sagging and whether the nipples should be repositioned and reduced in size. Dr. Parkins can provide the following types of breast lift procedures, which are often used in conjunction with implants:
In this method, the incision is placed around the areola, and the scar is naturally concealed in the pigmented sections of the skin. This is particularly useful for reducing the size of the areola if patients are concerned about this part of breast appearance. After the lift has been performed, Dr. Parkins will place the implants of your choice. This may create the need for a secondary incision, which will be reviewed during treatment planning.
This approach to a lift and augmentation is recommended for patients with moderate sagging. The incision is placed around the areola and vertically downwards, towards the natural breast crease, creating the appearance of a lollipop. This is another method used to provide both a lift and augmentation.
Silicone and form-stable implants are inserted pre-filled, while saline implants can be filled after being added to the breast pocket. It’s important to understand that, while scars and incisions seems intimidating, it’s best to pick a procedure based on what it can do for you, not where the scars will be placed. Minimal scarring techniques are not recommended in all cases, especially when the extent of loose skin is severe. The placement of implants may also require differing incisions. Ask Dr. Parkins what you can expect during your procedure to help minizine any anxiety about the treatment process.
Frequently Asked Questions about Lift and Augmentation Surgery
Is Recovery More Painful?
Dr. Parkins provides medication to ensure you are comfortable. Concerns over potential discomfort do not sway patients from choosing surgery and loving their results. Regardless of how plastic surgery procedures are marketed, patients can expect surgery of any kind to come with a period of discomfort during the healing process. This does not last, however, and comfort is increased each day. After day three of recovery, patients often experience a significant boost in wellness and comfort.
Will I Have to Take a Long Time away from Work?
Combining procedures is often easier than two separate treatments and having to take time away on two different dates. Patients typically take one week off and can return to work sooner if they do not have a physically demanding job.
Will My Breasts Sag Again After Surgery?
Changes in skin elasticity are natural, and a breast lift will not prevent this process. However, properly performed lifts reposition the breasts so they look uplifted for many years to come. Breasts will look much perkier as you get older, compared to their appearance if you did not have a surgical lift. Dr. Parkins performs treatment to create the best possible results. If additional care is needed, including placing a tissue scaffold to prevent deformities, such as bottoming out, this can be discussed during your consultation.
As breasts heal and settle, they will drop into a natural position. If you have questions or concerns about aftercare and what to expect, be sure to contact Dr. Parkins and her team for assistance.
