Feedback: Breast Lift with or without implant? Do you regret the lift without the implant and why? Thanks!



Recommended Posts

Thank you for starting this thread and to the women sharing their pics! I was just thinking about this very question! I started out with 38G breasts and they are already getting pretty floppy (but then they've NEVER been perky, not even when I was a D cup as a teenager). I don't want a reduction because I like my proportions, but getting an augmentation scares me because having anything foreign in my body gives me the heebie jeebies. Having a drain in after my surgery had me clawing up and down the walls with anxiety!

I always see women who get a reduction + lift or augmentation + lift so I really appreciate hearing the experiences and seeing pictures from women who are doing "just" the lift.

Everyone always gets a lift plus reduction. If you look around on real self, you can find people who get a lift without implants but with fat transfer, and they use your skin to make an internal bra. That way you can lift, and gain volume.

That is the kind of lift I want. Big breast run in my family and I want to keep mine. I have always had large breasts and I am not interested in being anything smaller than a DD. Dolly Parton is my spirit animal. :lol:

Everyone doesn't always have a lift plus reduction! My breasts are smaller because he removed all of the excess skin, but didn't remove any actual breast tissue. So I for one had "just" a lift :)

I'm with you in this one. Even when I was small I had humungous breasts- it's my most noticeable family trait. I'm so interested to see what happens to them through this process. I'm already expecting to have a TT and Brest lift. I wouldn't mind smaller than my current, but nothing under the DD!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who wants to lose weight but keep my boobs LOL. My mom is big-chested and is always talking about wanting to be an A or B cup but dammit I like my proportions!

Since it is a family trait, I really don't want to lose it. My identity has shifted enough with weight loss I need to keep something.

At this point even if I lose another 30 pounds, I am not worried they will go away, they are here to stay, LOL

I lost density. Think deflated balloons. I was still in an F cup - DDD but it was not breast tissue. I got the lift with reconstruction

I think you look very proportioned which is what I'm aiming for. Nice work!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
