A small implant is often used in combination with a breast lift and can usually be undertaken at the same time. The additional use of an implant helps to provide better long-term projection and fullness of the breast. The overall size of the breast can be increased by this technique if desired. This is particularly the case when fullness in the upper part of the breast and in the cleavage area is required. Occasionally women wanting breast implants to enhance their breasts may be advised that a combination of breast lift and an implant would be more likely to give the result they desire. Those patients who have loose skin or whose nipples have dropped significantly following pregnancy will usually be the ones to benefit from this type of procedure.
