Question: I lost over 100 lbs and now feel great, but my breasts are now suffering.  They have begun to really droop.  They look and feel very loose and empty.   Do I need an Implant?  Do I need a lift?  Please help!

Answer: Typically after massive weight loss, breast skin laxity is severely redundant and breast tissue in comparison is deflated and atrophic – especially in the upper breast pole.  After massive weight loss, most patients require both an implant for volume correction and skin excision and tailoring to lift the nipple and help shape the breast.  This combination of breast augmentation and lift is referred to as an Augmentation Mastopexy – or “Aug-Pexy”.  It is very important to see an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon for proper evaluation, including a history and physical exam, before deciding on the appropriate surgery.
