Can I Get A Breast Lift With Extra Large Breast Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I currently have 1350 cc saline implant with internal bra(alloderm)my implant is under the muscle i would like to get around 1800-2000cc and i would like to get a lift too but many doctor have told me that its not worth it if i do a lift because I have a poor skin quality (my skin is too thin and too elastic)and my breast will always get saggy  no matter what I do…

Do you think you could help me?

A:An increase in implant volume fights against any lifting effecting effect as well as vice versa. You have to pick one or the other. A lift risks wound dehiscence and poor scarring when done on a very expanded breast skin envelope. It would be more predictable and safer to go with the volume increase only.
