Hello, I received my implants when I was 19 and I am now 30. I went from an A cup to an B cup and now I want them removed. I’ve been researching and I want to know if you recommend a lift or not. Honestly, I don’t want to do a lift but if you recommend that I need one I will. Oh and I forgot they…

The lift will depend on your appearance now. If you have droop you may need a lift, but if not the implants alone can be removed. Sometimes you need volume and if you dont want an implant, fat grafting can increase the size of the breast about one half cup size. Measure the distance from the notch of your sternum to your nipple. If it is over 24 cm you will probably need a lift. If it is less than 22 you probably wont need a lift but may look deflated. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to get answers and an examination.
