Fortunately, the professionals at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery can address your concerns and produce beautiful custom results. To increase the volume and position of your breasts in Dallas, TX, schedule a private consultation today. We can help you better understand what is involved.

Do breast implants lift your breasts?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, is designed to provide more fullness to the breasts. Implants are a great choice for women with naturally small breasts who want to increase their cup size. However, breast augmentation is not necessarily a solution to drooping tissue. Even though they add volume, they cannot do anything to address the underlying causes of sagging. Adding breast implants may even make sagging worse. Instead, patients can undergo a breast lift to fix this common problem.

What happens in a breast lift?

Drooping is usually the result of natural aging or breastfeeding. These factors cause the skin to lose elasticity over time. When the breasts sag, you may notice your nipples pointing downward toward the floor. So, what happens in a breast lift? Breast lift surgery creates a firmer appearance that looks more proportionate to the rest of your body. During this procedure, the excess breast skin is removed while the remaining tissue is tightened. Surgery also reduces the size of the areola if required. If you are considering a lift, here are a few signs that this could benefit you:

  • Downward-pointing nipples

  • Asymmetrical or lopsided breasts

  • Chafing skin under the breast tissue

What to expect after breast lift and implants

It is common for patients to get breast augmentation and lift surgery at the same time, especially if they have significant sagging and loss of volume. For this reason, many patients want to know what to expect after breast lift and implants. Dr. Dauwe gladly provides each patient with a set of post-surgery guidelines so they can return to their everyday activities as soon as possible. Remember to take any medications as prescribed and attend all follow-up appointments as instructed by our team. By the end of the recovery process, patients should notice fuller, lifted breasts they truly enjoy.
