Interested in breast lift without implant
Will my breasts become perkier if I decide to go ahead with this lift?
A breast lift repositions the nipple and the breast mound to make the breast more youthful in appearance. This is the definition of perkiness. If someone wants to be larger and have more fullness at the top of the breast an implant is needed. Nipple position on the breast mound can only be improved with a lift, an implant can give the illusion of higher nipple position but will not significantly change the "perkiness" of the breast.
It is extremely important to recognize the goals and limitations of breast lifts and breast lifts with implants. A breast lift repositions your existing breast tissue, most commonly by tightening an excessively loose skin envelope. Because of gravity and the elastic nature of the skin, there is a settling that takes place over time. This will affect the "perkiness" of the breasts. Adding implants restores volume and/or enhances the size of the breasts, and may add to the volume at the upper pole of the breast. It generally does not increase the perkiness, however.
