Breast Lift And Implants Before And After

Deflated and empty breasts? Check out these before and after photos and videos of Breast Augmentation and lift surgery.

As any mother knows, there is nothing more rewarding in life than having a child. There is also nothing more challenging. As a mom, your job is exhausting and can feel never-ending. Motherhood might not only wear you down mentally, but also take a big toll on you physically! Even after losing all of your pregnancy weight, your body doesn’t return to the form it was in before.

One of the areas most intensely affected by pregnancy and motherhood is the breasts. Many women find that their breasts are saggy, deflated, or stretched after having a child. If this sounds familiar, check out our before and after photos of what is possible.

The effect of motherhood on your breasts

As any woman who has been pregnant knows, breast growth is prominent, especially in the first trimester. This is due in large part to increasing levels of estrogen and progesterone, two hormones which trigger growth of milk glands and ducts. The resulting effect is an increase in volume and size as well as the darkening of the areola.

After pregnancy, most women struggle with sagging or deflated breasts. There are a number of factors that play into this:

  • Skin – As breasts become fuller during pregnancy and the nursing period, skin must stretch in order to accommodate the greater volume. This can be problematic once breasts return to their normal size. The volume has decreased but the skin continues to be stretched. For most women, the skin of the breasts is never able to tighten fully to recreate the tautness and perkiness that they had prior to pregnancy.
  • Ligaments – Specifically, “Cooper’s ligaments,” the connective tissue that attach the collarbone and muscles of the chest to the skin of the breasts. Like the rest of our tissues, these ligaments lose elasticity as we age, causing the breasts to sag and lose some of their perkiness. This effect is typically even more severe in women with larger breasts that pull downwards.
  • Age – We all know that older bodies lose some of their tautness, but this is especially prominent in the breast region. This is due to the fact that women’s estrogen production decreases over time. Estrogen helps maintain skin’s elasticity, so when less is produced, skin begins to stretch more. For the breasts, this can mean sagging, stretch marks, and the areola shifting to a lower point on the breast.
  • Healthy living – Skin will also stretch more among those who have not been kind to their skin over the years. Factors such as smoking, sunbathing and habitual dehydration can all make the skin lose some of its elasticity. Though these behaviors’ effects are not usually immediate, over time they all have a profound negative impact on the health of your skin.

But even for those of us who are young, skin-health savvy, and fit, pregnancy typically causes a change in the breasts. It’s nearly impossible to avoid.

Interestingly, despite conventional wisdom, breastfeeding actually does not cause an increase in sagging of the breasts. Actually, according to researchers in the United States, it might actually have the opposite effect. This suggests that whether or not a mother decides to breastfeed, a pregnancy will cause breasts to lose their original shape and volume.

Breast augmentation and lift surgery

Increasingly, women are finding breast enhancement surgery to be a surprisingly easy and painless fix after pregnancy. This surgery can take the form of either augmentation or lifts. While augmentations focus on enlarging the breast, lifts can help restore perkiness and shape. The two procedures are often performed in conjunction.

Georgia – not her real name – was a 30-year mother of four. As a natural A-cup, Georgia had noticed that her breasts had lost some of their volume and shape since having her children.  She was frustrated by the sagging effect motherhood had had on her breasts. Georgia had considered cosmetic surgery – even before giving birth she had wanted fuller and larger breasts – but felt nervous and hesitant. It was only after she discussed her predicament with her family and friends that she decided to schedule an appointment with Dr Beldholm.

Georgia went with her mother to the clinic for her initial consultation. During her sit-down with Dr. Beldholm Georgia explained what her goals and expectations for the surgery were. Specifically, she wanted to achieve larger, fuller, and lifted cleavage while still maintaining a natural look. After reviewing her options, Georgia that the 430ml, extra high polyurethane silicone round implants in conjunction with a lift would be the best fit for her.

Before any breast enhancement procedure our state-of-the-art Swiss-designed Crisalix 3D breast enhancement simulator allows patients to visualize how different implants will look. The simulator is able to create a three-dimensional image of your body using three standard two-dimensional photos. Patients can simulate different sizes and shapes either nude or in different outfits and even take images home to show to loved ones.

Dr. Beldholm, understanding that Georgia’s goal was to augment her breasts while maintaining a natural and lifted appearance, suggested that she look at a number of different options using the Crisalix 3D simulator. Georgia agreed that it would be quite useful to have a visual picture to work with and during their next consultation she and Dr. Beldholm reviewed what her choices would look like. Once she was able to get a visual of how her polyurethane silicone breast implants would appear bare and in a variety of clothing, Georgia selected the 430ml round implants.*

Breast augmentation is more than just cosmetic surgery. Aside from improving the symmetry and perkiness of your breasts, it can also boost your self-confidence. This is especially true for patients that have lost volume following pregnancy and weight loss.

Feeling unhappy with how her breasts looked, Hannah, a mother of two, thought breast augmentation was the best solution for her sagging breasts.

Prior to her pregnancy, Hannah wore DD cup bras. However, over the last two years she lost a lot of weight, and her breasts became C cup in size. Aside from the droopiness and the unpleasant shape of her breasts, she also struggled with stretch marks and rashes along the folds of her breasts. She also disliked how big and dark her areolas were.

After a thorough assessment, Dr. Beldholm suggested for Hannah to undergo breast augmentation with lift. The single surgery utilized 400ml high round, polyurethane silicone implants.*

The joy of motherhood is an experience many mothers know as unmatched in its fulfillment. Despite all the joy that it brings, there are a few unpleasant physical changes that can come from caring for a newborn. Breastfeeding, for example, can lead to saggier, less full breasts, over time for many women. Queenie, a recent patient of ours, experienced these changes first hand after breastfeeding her child.

Like many women who have gone through a significant amount of breastfeeding, Queenie felt that she had lost the fullness of her breasts after eight months of breastfeeding her newborn. She felt her bust was also significantly saggier than before. Queenie had also lost about 9kg recently, which probably made both of these undesirable changes even worse than before.

After deciding to take the steps to correct these changes by meeting with Dr. Beldholm. Queenie was able to discuss her concerns, and exact expectations for the procedure, in their one-on-one consultation. After going over her individual case and desires, Queenie and Dr. Beldholm decided that in order to achieve the perkier and fuller breasts she was looking for, she would be best suited for breast augmentation combined with a lift.

During the procedure, Queenie’s breast augmentation was performed with 400 ml polyurethane silicone, round implants, with the superior pedicle technique used for the lift.

The operation resulted in a change from a 10D cup size to a DD cup size.*

Many women, especially those who have had children, find that their breasts often sag and lose their volume after having several children.

At the time of her consultation with Dr. Beldholm, Paula’s breasts were very uneven. Her left breast was bigger than the right, but after her pregnancy, she noticed that her left breast was saggy as well.

Paula wanted to have perky, even breasts, around D-cup in size so long as it’s not too big. She also revealed that she has been thinking about having her breasts done for the last 10 years ever since she had her last child.

Dr. Beldholm recommended a breast augmentation on the right side and a lift with an augmentation on the left side.  Polyurethane 360ml round moderate profile implants were used. She had a superior pedicle breast lift on the left breast as well. The implants were placed under the muscle.*

Amy had been considering the surgery for the last decade. After deciding to take the leap, Amy booked a consultation with Dr. Beldholm. She had two goals in mind: to eliminate sagginess as well as increase the volume of her bust.

During her consultation with Dr. Beldholm, Amy discussed her expectations for the procedures. Initially, she insisted on only undergoing breast augmentation. This procedure, Dr. Beldholm carefully explained, would certainly fulfill her goal of a larger bust, but in fact would not give her the lift she desired.

Breast augmentation, Dr. Beldholm clarified, will not correct drooping breasts. If performed in conjunction with a breast lift however, Amy would be able to achieve both her goals for the surgery. Additionally, both breast augmentation and a breast lift can be completed in a single operation, reducing recovery time as well as patient discomfort. She and Dr. Beldholm decided that opting for both procedures would be more in line with Amy’s post-surgery expectations.

In Dr. Beldholm’s experience, 350-450ml implants are the most common sizes for post pregnancy women, and tend to give a nice, natural looking bust. After utilizing cutting edge 3D imaging and reviewing the implants sizers however, Amy decided to go with a larger size.

Using 610ml extra high round, polyurethane silicone implants, Dr. Beldholm increased Amy’s bust from D cups to EE cups.*

Wendy knew what she wanted to get from the surgery- lifted and fuller breasts. To achieve this, Dr. Beldholm decided to use the Superior Pedicle Breast Reduction Technique on her.

As for the implants, Dr. Beldholm utilized 430ml round, polyurethane, silicone breast implants, to give Wendy the best result.*

When Gail came to our clinic, she was anxious, and she was clearly unhappy. Our staff tried to cheer her up; however, there was little if any success. Once she and Dr. Beldholm were in his office, Gail explained the negative experience she had with another cosmetic surgeon who left her with deformed breasts.

Breast augmentation surgery, like any other operation, comes with risks and complications. Two of the more common complications that can occur with breast augmentation, are, the double fold, and ruptured breast implants.

After her initial operation in February of 2009, Gail experienced both of those issues, after getting Eurosilicone breast implants. At her follow-up visit with her previous doctor, Gail was told that the double folds she had, was because of a muscle band.  She had revision surgery done by her original surgeon in May 2009.

However after the revision surgery she was still not happy with her results, Gail decided to book a consultation with Dr. Beldholm. During the assessment, Dr. Beldholm explained that the double fold had occurred because her own breast fold had failed to stretch out over the implant.

On March 9th 2014, Gail decided to have her left breast implant removed. She had it replaced with a polyurethane-silicone breast implant on May 8 of the same year. A breast lift was done on both sides. This helped even out the breasts as well as remove the double fold on the left side.*
