Breast lift without implants

Common Questions and Answers about Breast lift without implants


Avatar f tn It costs as much to have the implants removed and have a breast lift as it does to have implants. Right now you could probably get reasonable FIXED RATE financing to have this done. Ask at the Doctors office, look on the net for reviews of this sort of thing... When I had my implants removed, I also had a mastopexy (or breast lift). I was very happy with my results and very glad to have the effects from the silicon gradually disappear.
Avatar f tn Breast lifts are uniformly performed with breast reductions. With a lift as the sole procedure, often just excess skin is removed without significant reduction of breast volume. With a reduction, both breast tissue and fat is removed along reshaping the breasts and elevation of nipple position. The decision as to which procedure to select depends on whether there is a need for volume reduction.
Avatar f tn The risk is that the breast tissue sags over the implant and results in an unacceptable shape. Performing a breast lift over your existing implants, or over newly placed submuscular implants, will likely result in a more predictable result with better shape. Of course you must be willing to accept the additional scars a lift requires.
Avatar m tn Try having implants, they will fill you out without having a breast lift. You are very young to have a lift.
Avatar n tn Hi there! I initially had breast augmentation with saline implants in '98. In '02 I decided to go a little bigger.(Mcghan 390cc filled to 430 cc's) Dr. said I was borderline for needing lift, but thought implants alone would be sufficient. The first couple of years they looked great, but now my nipple is looking a little low on breast mound. I was wondering if I had lift if I could get away with using same implants, or do I need a new set? If I got new ones could I get silicone?
Avatar f tn Hello, Breast implants can cause change in weight but your back problems seem unrelated to the implants. The commonest causes of chronic low back pain are lumbar strain, nerve irritation, bone and joint conditions (arthritis), osteoporosis, lumbar radiculopathy, narrowing or stenosis of the spinal cord cavity. Even bad posture can lead to low back pain.
1174607 tn?1264177183 My surgeon is wanting me to do a lift and implants to fix a lumpectomy that I had in May of 2009. It wasn't cancer, it was a galactocile the size of a softball that solidified (after trauma to my milk ducts during a car accident in Feb 2008 5wks after baby). Anyway, I have an inverted nipple and you can see were the seatbelt went thru my breast and he said due to the trauma he wanted to do the lift first and let that heal, and then do the implants.
Avatar n tn I had what I was told was to be both a breast lift and implants. To begin with I had two consultations with the Dr. and both times I decided the 375 cc size was the right size. He also said that he could get "very good" results with the breast lift. At my first consultation post op, I found out that he used implants that were 475 cc and overfilled them to 520 or so. 1.
Avatar n tn It will be sore, but it is NOT because of your implants. Women WITHOUT implants get engorged as well and experience the same hardness you will.
Avatar n tn This surgery would probably fall under the "breast lift" or mastopexy procedure. I only say this because it sounds like the larger breast is lower than the other. It is great that you don't want implants, they were a disaster for me, had to have them removed after 10 years. Many, many procedures to resolve problems with implants. I don't know how old you are, but as one ages, there is usually a weight gain. So as you get older you breasts will probably enlarge some.
Avatar f tn Many commercial products that are available some of these products are herbal-based and contain ingredients such as dandelion root, soy, fenugreek, and Indian ginseng. These herbs are believed to firm the breast tissue. Surgical options like breast-lift surgery or breast implants help enhance the shape and size of your breasts and improve their firmness. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations.
Avatar f tn I had a breasted lift with gummy implants. The left incision kept opening and finally Dr took out implant to let tissue heal and wants to put it back in in a month.
Avatar n tn I too have this problem! It stated soon after a got a breast lift and implants to correct a slight tubular breast disorder. I was wondering if it could have anything to do with the implants or the scars or just the fact that my breasts are bigger than they were. My problem, though, is that its a very strong oder! I'm not sure if people can smell it but I constantly worry that they can.
Avatar f tn Just wondering how you are doing. I recently had breast implants removed, and even though I did so for health reasons, I now feel depressed, anxious, and ashamed of my body. I went from a natural looking 32d to an emaciated looking 32 a/b. Similar to your first post, it has only been 10 days since my surgery. They're just boobs, but I feel a sense of loss that I hadn't anticipated before the surgery.
Avatar f tn Based on your description, some form of modified breast lift with coning of the breast to achieve central fullness seem a likely possibility
1222635 tn?1366399886 ( wear a B/C depending on the bra ) i know its more expensive to get a lift by itself, but i what i REALLY want is implants AND a lift. but im scared how much that will cost. did anyone get JUST implants? did it give you a natural lift without actually getting a lift? all in all, what were the results of your augmentation, no matter what you had done?
Avatar n tn I had a tram flap and implants and feel like I have been bound with metal. I can't turn over at night or lift my arms freely over my head. I am going to another plastic surgeon and will probably have the implants removed. I feel like mine might be scar tissue. Does anyone else feel that when they lay down a bind goes around the chest, shoulders and arms?
Avatar f tn She went into surgery for about 45 mins, came out, went home and that was the end of it. Both my sisters now have breast tissue under their underarms and both hate the way it looks. They both had it checked out and the doc told them it was harmless. One sister though has been complaining that it hurts her when she is close to getting her AF so shes going back to the doc to possibly have it removed.
Avatar n tn my left breast is swollen and painful with a knot at the bottom of it. I had breast implants about 2 year's ago. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn Posted by Roxann on July 05, 1999 at 09:30:49 Dr. I recently had a breast lift and augmentation 2 weeks ago and have noticed a nerve extending from the bottom of my left breast when I lift my arm up over my head and it seems to extend down toward my abdomen. This is causing me some pain and concern. Did the implant get put in the wrong area? is this a nerve or ligament? Can you help?
Avatar n tn I had a breast lift and augmentation on May 1, 2009. I had 500cc silicone implants. My breasts sag and lay on my ribs. To me all that was accomplished was to take saggy breasts and just make them fuller saggy breasts. What can be done to make them sag less. Do you think I will have to pay more for it. I told my Dr I wanted smaller, less saggy breasts and what I got was bigger, saggy breasts. I am not at all happy and before I call my Dr I wanted to be armed with some facts.
1563771 tn?1299820137 For the abdomen, this would be referred to as an abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck. For the breasts, this may refer to a breast lift with or without implants. These procedures may also be combined with liposuction for further body contouring. These procedures are performed for women who want an improved figure after having children.
Avatar n tn The problem is that I have contacted many cosmetic surgeries in my area but they don't seem to understand what I mean and only seem interested in doing the more common procedures like breast implants and face lifts etc. Is there a surgery, preferably in the UK who can help me with my quandary? How can it be so difficult to tighten skin on my scalp, surely it would be no more difficult than having a face lift or pinning my ears back.
Avatar f tn and should my ps have used a smaller implant as he was not removing any breast tissue to do a lift also are the implants enough to lift the breast or will i just have saggy breasts with implants. i realise it is hard to answer these questions without seeing me in person but i would greatly appriciate some answers before i go back to my ps with a list of complants i do not want to say any thing unless it is necessary. thank you in advance for your time.

Avatar n tn I have a choice of an implant (with a possible sinus lift and bone graft) or a bridge. what is the best option to choose-- and what is the logevity of the bridge. I am 50 and would like to be done with this, but am a bit nervous about the invasive nature of the sinus/ bone graft stuff.
Avatar f tn The plastic surgeon that I saw said I have a double D and at age fifty five, I would not be satisfied with implants. My breast that I have left will need reduction and lift. I weigh one sixty five and I am five four. I am in good health otherwise and exercise and remain active. I do not smoke.
Avatar n tn He informed me that they would immediately put in Silicone Breast Implants. I went along with it and it was the biggest mistake of my life. Within two years I had two implants rupture in me, they didn't get all the silicone out from the first one and no one told me that the second one had ruptured until 9 years later when I found lumps on my lymph nodes. My health deteriorated terribly and I was sick all the time. (I am now on permanent Disability.
