With time, women will experience a reduction in the volume of their breasts due to the natural process of aging. At the same time, they may also experience sagging of the breasts, which can cause them to lose their proper, more youthful position on the chest. In situations such as this, Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX may recommend not only a breast lift, but the use of breast implants as well.
Combining a breast lift and breast implants
Breast implant placement alone is known as breast augmentation. This will not specifically address sagging breasts due to aging or significant weight loss. To achieve the desired results, patients will need to pair their breast augmentation procedure with a breast lift. These two procedures are commonly done together for older women who want to rejuvenate the appearance of their breasts for personal reasons, typically self-confidence.
What happens during a breast lift with breast implants?
The doctor often pairs these procedures because together, they achieve the best changes for a patient. The breast lift focuses on ensuring that any excess skin is removed to lift the breasts upward on the chest. At the same time, the nipples may be repositioned if they have fallen in the downward position with time. Volume of the breasts is not addressed during a breast lift, which is where the placement of a breast implant can assist. The breast implant is chosen by the patient with the help of Dr. Thomas Wiener to ensure their desired results and to keep the augmentation looking as natural as possible, balancing the size of the breast implant with the patient’s body frame for a harmonious result.
