Breast Lift After Breast Implant Removal

Do You Need a Breast Lift after Removing Implants?

As the years pass, some women with breast implants decide they no longer want large breasts. For personal or medical reasons, they make the decision to remove their implants.

In these cases, a common concern is how the breasts will look after removing (a.k.a., explanting) the implants. The surgery can go one of two ways: either the breasts will look smaller after surgery yet still retain a good shape, or they will look saggy, flat or “deflated.” In the latter scenario, breast lift can be performed to raise the breasts higher on the chest.

If you are considering breast explant surgery, you may be curious whether you will need a breast lift to attain a pleasing breast contour. It is difficult to predict whether you could benefit from a lift, as it depends on several factors. The best thing to do is consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. A.J. Khalil about your options.

Adding Implants to a Breast Lift: Yay or Nay?

Breast lift, or mastopexy, involves lifting sagging or drooping breasts higher on the chest in a more youthful position. Many of the women seeking breast lift with Dr. A.J. Khalil are unhappy with how pregnancy and breastfeeding changed their breasts, whereas other breast lift candidates never liked their breasts — perhaps due to genetic factors — or developed sagging after weight fluctuations.

During breast lift, Dr. Khalil lifts the breast tissue, removes excess skin and relocates the nipple-areolar complex higher on the breast mound. The result is perkier breasts that look more youthful.

If you are mostly happy with the size of your breasts (but not the sagging), breast lift alone is probably right for you. Another option is to add breast implants to the breast lift procedure. Here are some signs that it might be beneficial to add saline or silicone implants to your breast lift:
