You should consider a breast lift revision surgery using the Laserbra technique. The very effective and thoroughly studied Laserbra technique of using your own skin and tissue, treat it with a CO2 laser and using it as an internal bra inside the lift creates beautiful natural results with or without an implant depending on the case.
