Do I need a breast lift? What is the purpose of implants versus a lift?

How can you determine at home if you need a breast augmentation in Denver, Colorado, with a breast lift? Often, the answers to two questions can help. First, have you had children and/or significant weight loss? Second, what cup size are you now? If the first answer is yes and the second is larger than a small B cup, usually a lift is necessary, but this is not a reliable way to know for sure.

If your breasts hang below your creases, you need a lift. But often women aren't sure. Deflation with collapsed or empty upper breasts does not require a lift and can be managed with implant placement alone. The most reliable means to determine if you need a Denver breast lift is to look at your breasts in the mirror with your body angled at 45 degrees so you get an oblique view of yourself. Then look at the breast that is farther away and see if it hangs over the crease. Alternatively, you can take a picture of your breasts on a 45 degree angle (oblique view) and evaluate the picture for the same overhang. You can also take this picture, sit in front of the computer and peruse the web to identify the procedure of choice for women with a similar breast position.

If the lower poles of your breasts are no longer round, but rather oval, pointy, or boxy shaped, then a lift is essential. A lift serves the purpose of improving lower pole contour – the hallmark of attractive, youthful breasts. An implant does not improve shape but serves two other purposes: to fill out the upper breasts and to increase overall size. If your breasts sag, the lift is critical while the implant is optional depending upon your goals. If there is no sagging but merely deflation, an implant alone will do the trick.
