I have DDD breasts, would I benefit more from a breast lift or a D implant job?
It really depends on what you want… but you really can do either one. Find a local plastic surgeon and schedule a consultation. This allows your surgeon to listen to your goals and examine you to provide you options from which you can pick from. Know your surgeons revision policy just in case it is needed and also know how accessible your surgeon is as some often ‘disappear’ when after hours making it challenging for patients to contact them.
Hi… not exactly sure what a D implant job would be but let’s start with the basics. If you are DDD cup size and would like to be smaller then a breast reduction which includes a lift would work. If you are basically happy with the size but not the shape and any sagging then a breast lift might be the best idea. Somewhere in all the above is a partial reduction with placement of an implant and a lift as well. I am sure this sounds a bit confusing but the take away lesson is that for a “real” answer you would be best served by seeing a plastic surgeon for a proper evaluation. With the ability to see the current situation as well as go over your goals you and that surgeon can make a plan that meets with both your current anatomy and integrates what is possible into a surgical plan. Hope this helps.

It is hard to advise you without seeing your or at least picture. I also think having a better understanding of what you desire is needed. Placing an implant in a patient that already a DDD will just make you larger and leave you with the degree of sagging you have now and possibly make the sagging worse. As to a breast lift, that can be done on a DDD cup, while reducing it to a D cup. As I am sure you are aware, the scars from a breast lift are much longer and in more places than the breast enlargement scars.
