I got breast lift and breast implants 3 years ago d cup. I now notice significant sagging in only 3 years is this typical?

It can happen...: ...But this is not typical. Your chances are increased by larger breast volume and poor skin tone. Women with small breasts rarely need a breast lift, while women who receive breast reductions always do. By using the smallest breast implants that will get the results desired, the results are prolonged.

Careful analysis=good outcome. ...Read more

It depends: If you had a nice breast shape before you had implants - with no droop - then the odds are good that you can avoid a lift, if you have normal skin elasticity. But if you had pre-existing droop, have droop now, or just have decreased skin elasticity, you may well benefit from a breast lift. ...Read more

What is the best way to get a breast lift without surgery or implants?

Nonsurgical lift: If father time and gravity have taken their toll on your breasts, the only option to give a lifted look is to perform a breast lift. The addition of implants is solely based on the desire for more volume. The type of life will depend on how fallen the breasts are. A small lift can be performed around the areola (dark skin around the nipple). More fallen breasts will need a bigger lift. ...Read more
