Will breast implants improve my slightly sagging breasts without a lift or will I need a lift as well? My chest lacks volume (I have lost alot of weight), and my breasts are far apart, deflated and a bit saggy from the front. But from the side, the nipple and areola are well above the crease.

I’m 22 and plan to have kids and breast feed them someday. I’m 5’4 and 128 pounds and my bra size is a small 34B (Breast width=13cm). I’d like to be a full C-D cup again (that was my cup size when I was heavier). What kind of implants would suit me best?

A: breast implants without a breast lift

Based on your photo above, it appears breast implants alone would address your desire for fuller/larger breasts without the need for implants. This is not always possible to determine based on photos alone however. Remember, that once the implants are placed during surgery, your breast shape or nipple position may seem different and there is an outside chance you may need a lift, but I doubt it. I would definitely have the implants placed under your pectoral muscle as you are planning to breast feed in the future. The choice of salne vs silicone is one of preference, however most patients feel that silicone has a more natural feel.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area prior to any cosmetic breast surgery.
