Can Breast Implants Cause An Areola Lift?

For the next vlog series, we look at breast implants and whether having the surgery can cause an areola lift on your breasts. Implants come in many different shapes and sizes so it’s important to choose the correct one for you if you wish to see it has an impact on your nipples too. To lift the nipple, there must be extra volume in your lower pole and this can only be completed if you choose to have an anatomical implant or a shaped implant.

How an areola lift can be managed is if the implants have less volume in the upper layer and more volume in the lower parts, which causes the areola lift to occur. Each of the implants has different projections. For example, lighter implants are likely to have a higher projection which means it can cause the nipple and areola to lift.

In the case study provided, the patient has rather low nipples and breasts. They chose to have anatomical breast implants which helped with the areola lift and provide a more aesthetically pleasing result. It’s worth noting that the ageing process does continue after the procedures, so later down the line, your implants may require a lift again.

During your consultation, you can discuss the pros and cons of having breast implants and the impact they can have with lifting your nipples. If you’d like more information on breast augmentation surgery then you can get in touch by contacting us here or by calling 0161 401 4064.
