For many individuals, the idea of enhancing the bust area is an attractive idea. However, many patients often express hesitation about increasing their bust size or lifting their breasts via implants. It’s not surprising: breast implants, when done incorrectly, can be quite obvious to the naked eye. What’s more, improperly fitted breast implants can scar the breast tissue, which can lead to further complications should the patient opt to replace her breast implants.
With all these concerns in mind, it’s no wonder more individuals are curious if they can achieve the same aesthetic results from a breast lift without implants.
Frederic H. Corbin, MD, is pleased to offer patients the option of undergoing breast lift without needing breast implants. As a board-certified plastic surgeon with two locations in Beverly Hills and Brea (Orange County), Dr. Corbin has developed a unique breast lift procedure that can reshape and lift the breasts without requiring the insertion of implants. This procedure is known as a mastopexy, and it’s ideal for surgical candidates who meet the following criteria:
- Has drooping breasts with less volume
- Has experienced a sudden loss of volume due to aging or breastfeeding
- Is not pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to have a child soon
- Is not planning to lose a considerable amount of weight (this can undo the results of the breast lift)
- Is over the age of 18 and healthy
If you meet the above criteria, Dr. Corbin will meet with you in a consultation to determine your ideal shape and size. This can help Dr. Corbin decide if your breast lift can be done without breast implants, or if you’ll need a breast augmentation to achieve your desired results.
If it’s determined that you don’t need implants, Dr. Corbin will recommend utilizing fat grafting procedures, which takes fat from one area of your body and transfers it to your breasts. This can create a natural and voluminous shape, while providing you with fat reduction in another area of your body, such as the stomach, thighs, hips, arms, etc.
