Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift Atlanta – Dr. Thomas Lintner
DR. THOMAS LINTNER: Trying to decide between an augmentation or a lift is not so difficult. You have to look at the nipple position to decide where it needs to be. If the nipple is in a good position equally weighted between the upper and lower breast then you need only augmentation. If it’s below that then you need a lift. And sometimes we use the implant to increase the size and sometimes we use it to just shape the breast and then lift the nipple and that involves generally more incisions, more skin removal and that is sometimes disconcerting to a patient. Sometimes they’re thinking I only need augmentation and when we see them they actually need a lift.
