Do you need an implant with your breast lift?

The word “need” is a strong word. You never “need” anything in elective cosmetic surgery.

It is important to understand what each part of the operation accomplishes.

The breast lift or mastopexy is designed to remove excess skin, lift the location of nipple and areola, and create a rounder and more youthful breast shape. The mastopexy will not make the breast any larger and tends not to alter the volume in the upper pole of the breast.

Some procedures combine portions of these operations into a single cosmetic surgery.

While both involve alterations to the breasts, they serve distinct purposes and cater to unique patient needs. Let’s delve into the nuances that differentiate mastopexy and breast reduction.
