Should I Get a Lift With My Breast Augmentation?
An additional consideration with breast augmentation is whether you also need a breast lift. A breast augmentation can add volume, but if you have loose breast skin. To enjoy the full results of your breast augmentation, you may also choose to have a breast lift.
A breast lift uses an incision around the areola and under the breast. Dr. Stile removes loose skin and lifts the breast tissue into a higher, more youthful position on the chest. He will also reposition the areola, which often starts to point downward when breasts sag. Dr. Stile may recommend a lift if he feels that you will not get the best results from your augmentation without one.
How Long Do Breast Implants Last?
After recovery, you can enjoy your new breasts for anywhere from ten to twelve years and sometimes even longer. You might choose to have your implants removed before this time if they develop any problems, which is rare but not impossible. As implants reach the end of their lifespan, they become more susceptible to problems.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
If you feel uncomfortable with your breasts and would like more roundness and volume, you may be a good candidate. Good health is important, and you should have reasonable expectations about your results.
