Is Breast Augmentation the Right Treatment to Improve Sagging Breasts?

By: Dr. Algie LaBrasca


Whether they're a result of age, breastfeeding, weight loss, or other factors, sagging breasts are a challenge for many women, taking a toll on their confidence and self-esteem. Luckily, advancements in breast enhancement have made it possible to recapture those youthful curves. At LaBrasca Plastic Surgery in DuBois, PA, Dr. Algie LaBrasca employs the latest techniques in breast surgery to help women overcome this challenge, providing them with tailored solutions that aim to enhance their figure and boost their self-esteem. If you're thinking about refining your look with breast augmentation, here are some points to consider.

Can breast augmentation surgery help correct sagging breasts?

The benefits of breast augmentation go beyond increasing your bust size; it's also effective in enhancing the shape and symmetry of your breasts. For those experiencing sagging breasts, augmentation can offer a more youthful appearance. Implants can provide additional volume and projection, which, in some cases, helps lift the breast tissue slightly. That said, if sagging breasts are your primary concern, we might recommend breast lift surgery as an alternative.

Should I get a breast lift or breast augmentation?

The choice between a breast lift or breast augmentation comes down to your aesthetic goals. If you're mostly concerned about enhancing the size or shape of your breasts, breast augmentation may be the ideal option for you. On the other hand, if your main issue is sagging, a breast lift might be what you want. During your consultation, Dr. LaBrasca will learn about your cosmetic concerns and help you decide which breast enhancement option will help you achieve your desired look.

Can I combine my breast augmentation with a breast lift?

Combining breast augmentation with a lift is often possible and can be an excellent solution for those looking to enhance size and address sagging breasts in one procedure. This combination offers the benefits of both treatments: The breast lift corrects sagging by removing excess skin and reshaping the breast tissue, while implants add volume and fullness. This dual approach can create a more complete body transformation, producing more youthful, uplifted, and fuller breasts. Be sure to ask Dr. LaBrasca during your consultation if this combined approach is right for your goals.

What is the recovery like after breast surgery?

Your recovery experience after breast surgery will depend on the procedure, your overall health, and how well you adhere to Dr. LaBrasca's post-surgery guidelines. Most patients experience discomfort and swelling in the days following their procedure, but these should pass. Here are some guidelines to help ensure a smoother recovery period:

  • Rest adequately: Giving your body enough time to heal is essential.
  • Stay hydrated and eat nutritiously: Focus on eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals that promote wound healing.
  • Avoid strenuous activities: To prevent complications and ensure the best healing environment possible, avoid lifting heavy objects and engaging in high-impact activities until Dr. LaBrasca clears you.
  • Wear supportive garments: Dr. LaBrasca may recommend supportive clothes, such as a surgical bra. These are designed to provide support to your breasts, reduce swelling, and improve comfort during recovery.
