It’s ALL about the shape
For patients who are happy with their size and don’t want added volume then a breast lift is performed on its own without using an implant. This is not as common an operation as a breast lift with implants as most patients experience a loss of volume of their breasts as they develop droop. But for those patients who have maintained their volume but have experienced droop than a lift is all that is needed. It is the same incision pattern and operation as a breast lift with an implant but the patient’s own volume is used in place of the implant to give fullness to the breast, reposition the nipple to its correct location and reduce the areola. Patients end up with a prettier shape to their breasts with a smaller areolae and the nipple rested to the right location.
