Can I Get a Breast Lift Without Implants?
There are many different forces that can gradually alter the way our bodies, particularly the breasts, appear. The natural process of aging, genetic influences, pregnancy and childbirth can pull the breasts down from their higher, more youthful position on the chest. Additionally, these elements can also cause volume loss over time. Breast lift from our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Richards, can address these concerns and achieve beautiful results. But what about breast implants; are those necessary? The short answer is no, but there are many considerations to weigh before determining whether a breast lift with or without implants is right for you.
If you’re happy with the size of your breasts but are less satisfied with their placement on your body due to sagging or drooping, implants may be unnecessary. However, if you would like larger breasts or breasts with more fullness at the top, breast implants may be the best option. Many women would like to avoid inserting foreign objects such as breast implants into their bodies, and Dr. Richards can restore a firmer, more perky and youthful look with his advanced techniques.
If, on the other hand, you would like larger or fuller breasts, or if your breasts are significantly asymmetrical, breast implants can provide the rejuvenation and balance you desire. There are many types of breast implants available now that offer far more natural-looking results than ever before. If your main concern is that breast implants can appear “artificial,” the new “gummy bear” cohesive gel implants may change your mind. They come in a teardrop shape that conforms to the natural contours of a woman’s breasts. Dr. Richards will be happy to explain your options during your initial consultation.
