“My husband and I both prefer smaller breasts but after having a child and breastfeeding I am left with saggy, deflated breasts. I wore a 36D while breastfeeding , now down to a 34A. Am I able to get a lift without implants (what I would prefer) or should I consider small implants?”
Dr. Yovino’s Answer: You appear to be an excellent candidate for a fat transfer to the breasts. This can also be performed with a breast lift if you choose. The end result with be about 1/2 cup to 1 cup increase in size. An advantage of fat transfer is that the donor areas (tummy, love handles, arms, or thighs) also get sculpted. Another advantage is that I perform this procedure under local anesthesia with light sedation (safer and easier recovery) If this doesn’t seem like a good option for you, then consider a periareolar breast lift as well as a low to moderate profile breast implant that fits the width of your breast. Come in to visit so we can go over these options. Keep in mind that in your case, a breast lift would not achieve reinflation of your breasts.
