Breast Lift and Augmentation Q & A
What’s a breast lift?
Breast lift surgery entails removing extra loose skin above the breasts to move them up into a perkier position. Dr. Ku can also reduce the size of the areolas during the procedure if you have enlarged nipples.
Dr. Ku starts by making incisions at the nipple and below the breast crease to keep them camouflaged. Then, he removes excess skin above the nipple and stitches the breast into a lifted position.
What’s a breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size of your breasts. Dr. Ku uses saline or silicone implants to customize the size and feel of your new breasts. He prefers to provide natural results from breast enhancement procedures.
While you’re under general anesthesia, Dr. Ku creates inconspicuous incisions around the nipple and under the breast crease. Then, he inserts the implant below the breast tissue and chest muscles. Once the implants are in place, he closes the incisions.
Why do women get breast lifts and augmentation?
Women choose to get breast lifts and augmentations to improve the overall appearance of their breasts. Their breasts may have fallen or shrunk, assuming a drooped position, as a result of:
- Significant weight loss
- Childbirth and breastfeeding
- Gravity and aging
Am I a good candidate for a breast lift and augmentation?
Ideal candidates for breast enhancement have reasonable expectations for the surgery and are in good overall health. You also need to be a non-smoker with fully developed breasts for the best results.
Dr. Ku also considers your reasoning for having the treatment to evaluate your readiness for surgery. You should want the procedure for yourself, not to please another person. You should also consider the surgery as a way to improve the appearance of your breasts, not to attain perfection.
Dr. Ku may also make recommendations based on your desire to have more children. You may want to postpone the operation until you’re finished having babies, as pregnancy can reverse or alter your results.
