Breast Lift

Q: Dr. Eppley, What is the cost of start to finish with Breast Augmentation. I am concerned that I may need a breast lift as well but I see you have a before and after photo on your website when you click on the breast tab and below its says large breast implants there is a female on the left that is very comparable to my breast structure and looks like she just had implants and looks amazing. That’s what I am looking for. I am 27 years old with one child now with extra skin. Thanks

A: The critical question is whether you need a breast lift with your implants or not. That, of course, would impact the results as well as the cost of the surgery.if you could send some pictures of your breasts I could make that determination. The other issue that can tip the balance for or against the need for a breast lift is the final size of the breasts one desires. In some cases, large breast implants can overcome mild to moderate amounts of breast sagging with the considerable volumetric expansion. But that depends on the position of the nipple to the inframammary fold. Large volumetric expansion (large breast implants) works to create a breast lift IF the nipple is at the level of the inframammary fold or higher.
