Wouldn’t it be nice if gravity decided not to bother with your breasts? After all, it’s quite busy enough dealing with everything else here on earth so why waste the time and effort making your breasts look less perky, attractive and voluptuous?

If it were only so easy!

But, alas, that is not reality.

With age, time, weight fluctuations, pregnancy and breast feeding compounded by gravity, size, heredity, genetics, vices (smoking!), health and nutrition your breasts are subject to a relentless deterioration of their appearance and position over time.

Unfortunately, they are not forever young. Some women, however, are lucky in that their breasts maintain a more youthful shape for a far more extended period of time.

So, what can you do if your breasts are drooping, deflated and not looking very happy?

You can consider a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, either by itself or most commonly, along with a breast augmentation. The vast majority of women that I see who are seeking a breast lift, most would benefit from and do opt for a breast enlargement as well. For those who are very large or around the ultimate cup size that they want to be, breast implants may not be necessary.

The following photos document the results of a 48 year old Native American female who was unhappy with her droopy breasts (A, C and E) and wanted to be perky, firm and larger. Though she claimed that they were a “DD” cup size, their real size was around a “D”.

This patient underwent a full mastopexy and breast augmentation using 300cc high profile smooth surfaced silicone breast implants placed in a submuscular (behind the muscle) pocket. Due to her dark complexion and extremely high risk to develop dark and thick scars, she was started on a scar cream and skin bleaching agent a few weeks after surgery in order for her to obtain the best possible scars. (Note: Women who are relatively fair in complexion typically won’t have the darker pigmentation as seen around this patient’s scars.)

The results are exactly what this patient had desired and so she was extremely happy with the outcome (B, D and F).
