Many women experience significant loss of volume over time. This can occur after breast feeding, significant weight loss or naturally over time. Many other surgeons focus mainly on implant size. Some women also require reshaping excessive skin. Less artistic approaches to breast surgery restrict the type and size of implant for certain body shapes. Dr. Kim of Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center LLC feels that breast implant size is only part of the formula for success. He believes that shaping of implant pockets is equally important. Also, using a combined breast lift will reshape the skin and elevate drooping nipples. Every patient is unique in their desired breast shape and size. Dr. Kim uses his experience to create the desired cup size with the proper balance of fullness and cleavage for the patient.
Silicone or Saline? At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center half of our patients prefer silicone and the other half saline implants. Each implant type has specific advantages. Dr. Kim feels that silicone implants have a more natural appearance and feel. If the possibility of visible rippling is a concern, silicone implants are preferred. However, silicone implants are more expensive and patients require closer, long term follow up mandated by the FDA. The patients who choose saline implants often want the shorter incision, fuller appearance and lower cost. Also, since the latest generation saline implants have been available longer, more women have friends or relatives with saline implants. They are more comfortable knowing that someone close to them has had a good experience with saline implants.

Over time, a woman's breasts begin to sag and the areolas become larger.
Incisions outline the area of skin to be removed and the new position for the nipple.
Skin formerly located above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast. Sutures close the incisions, giving the breast its new contour.
After surgery, the breasts are higher and firmer, with sutures usually located around the areola, below it, and in the crease under the breast. Vertical breast lifts do not have an incision in the breast crease.
If your expectations are realistic, chances are you'll be satisfied with your breast lift.
