Can Breast Augmentation Correct Downward-pointing Nipples?

Learn more about how breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination of both has helped women just like you achieve perkier, more desirable breasts.
Will a breast augmentation make my nipples higher?
For many patients, breast augmentation can help improve the appearance of downward-pointing nipples. During the procedure, implants are inserted to enhance breast volume and shape. This can provide a slight lift to the breast tissue by filling out the breast pocket, forcing the nipples to a more desirable position on the breast mound. However, it's important to note that the degree of correction will depend on individual anatomy and the severity of nipple ptosis (drooping).
Is breast augmentation the right procedure for correcting downward-pointing nipples?
In some cases, breast augmentation alone may be enough to address the appearance of downward-pointing nipples. However, in situations where there is significant nipple ptosis, a combination procedure such as a breast augmentation with a breast lift may be recommended. A breast lift can provide additional support and reposition the nipples to a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing location.
How does breast augmentation with a breast lift work?
Breast augmentation plus lift combines the placement of breast implants (or fat transfer to the breast) with the removal of excess skin and repositioning of the nipple-areola complex. This comprehensive procedure can address both volume loss and nipple sagging, resulting in fuller, lifted breasts with improved nipple position. During your initial consultation for breast enhancement surgery in NOLA, Dr. Charvet will assess your individual needs and goals during a consultation to determine the most appropriate approach for achieving your desired results.
What can you expect during a breast lift recovery?
After breast augmentation or a breast augmentation with a lift, it's important to follow postoperative instructions provided by Dr. Charvet. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medication and/or aftercare guidelines given by our team. It's essential to avoid strenuous activities and follow proper care protocols to ensure optimal healing and minimize the risk of complications.
Am I a candidate for breast augmentation with lift?
Ideal candidates for a breast augmentation plus lift should be:
- In good health
- Desire enhanced breast size, volume, and shape
- Have concerns about drooping breasts and/or downward-pointing nipples
- Have realistic expectations for their results
