Can Breast Augmentation With Implants Fix Sagging Breasts?
There are different types of breast enhancement surgery. Some procedures help lift and shape the breasts, while others are designed to add volume and make the breasts bigger. In order to get the look you want, it’s critical to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to go over your options. It may be the case that you can have more than one procedure performed to lift, shape, and enhance.
Scheduling a consultation with Dr. David Hartman at Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can help patients who are unsatisfied with their breasts devise a treatment plan for complete breast enhancement.
Below, we’ll look at what procedures patients might consider if they are unhappy with sagging breasts.
What is the difference between breast augmentation, breast lifts, and breast enhancement?
Breast augmentation surgery can enhance the shape and size of your breasts. At Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Hartman is skilled in using a patient’s own body fat to help reshape and enlarge breasts. The augmentation procedure is designed to lift and fill.
For patients only looking to get fuller, larger, or shapelier breasts, Dr. Hartman offers both saline and silicone implants, fat transfer, and newer “gummy bear” implants made of a form-stable gel that reduces the risk of leaking in the event of trauma to the breast.
Patients who are satisfied with their breast shape and size but want to lift sagging breasts are likely candidates for a breast lift. This procedure does not interfere with the size or shape of breasts but simply involves removing sagging tissue and pulling the breasts back up to a higher position on the chest.
What is the difference between breast implants and fat transfer breast rejuvenation?
Traditional breast implants are made with silicone or saline. However, some patients forego implants due to the risk of leakage. The size and shape of these implants depend on the breast tissue already in place and the patient’s desired outcome.
A newer type of implant is referred to as “gummy bear” implants. These are made of a cohesive silicone gel that does not leak. These teardrop-shaped implants are growing in popularity.
Patients seeking the most natural look possible and a less-invasive procedure also have the option of fat grafting (or fat transfer) at Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. This procedure does not use liquids or gels but fat cells harvested from a patient’s own body to increase the size of the breast.
Fat transfer breast rejuvenation uses autologous fat transfer from a part of your body to the breasts to change their volume and shape. It’s a two-part procedure that first requires harvesting fat cells from donor areas, such as the tummy, thighs, “love handles,” upper back, or chin, using Alma BeautiFill laser technology. The fat is then placed in the breast for the most customized results without the risk of allergies or rejection.
What is the best way to fix sagging breasts?
Patients only looking to fix sagging breasts may be directed to a minimally invasive surgical breast lift. However, those who want a boost in size as well can ask Dr. Hartman for a consultation to discuss a “breast rejuvenation” that involves a lift and fat transfer for lifted, rounder, and fuller breasts.
Patients can schedule both a breast lift and fat transfer rejuvenation with Dr. Hartman if it’s appropriate and they are good candidates for surgery.
