Breast Lift with Implants

Women who are interested in breast-enhancement procedures often have multiple aspects of their breasts that they are not pleased with. Breast augmentation is designed specifically to enhance the size of the breasts, and a breast lift is specifically for patients who want shapelier breasts with a perkier and more youthful appearance.

In cases where larger and perkier breasts are desired, the two procedures can be combined into what is known as a breast lift with implants. This procedure is excellent for women who have always been unhappy with the appearance of their breasts, women whose appearance has been affected by aging, and women who want to restore their breasts after pregnancy.

What is a Breast Lift with Implants?

A breast lift with implants, or breast augmentation and mastopexy, elevates the breast tissue and repositions the nipple, while increasing volume to create a more full and youthful appearance. The effects of normal aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss all contribute to breast sagging and loss of superior fullness. Women who have experienced these life events can better achieve their desired outcome using this procedure combination.

Before & After Photos

 

Initial Consultation

After performing an exam and reviewing pertinent health history, your surgeon may order lab work, a mammogram, and other pre-operative tests as deemed necessary. This is all done to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure and reduces the risk of experiencing complications as a result of surgery. Lastly, you will meet with a surgery coordinator to discuss fees, surgery scheduling options, and make a pre-operative appointment to meet with the nurse for final preparation prior to surgery.

During your initial consultation, you will meet with one of our board certified plastic surgeons to discuss your goals and expectations. Your surgeon will provide you with a detailed explanation of the procedure, answer your questions, and determine a surgical plan of care based on your expected outcome.

 

Surgery

Your procedure will be performed in our AAAASF accredited office surgical suite with a qualified anesthesia provider. Operative time in most cases is approximately 1-2 hours. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, and patients are discharged home the same day.

The procedure is typically performed all at once, but in some cases, this may not be possible. The implants will be inserted first. This will allow the surgeon to see how the implants look so that they can make the proper adjustments during the lift portion of the procedure. At the end of the surgery, incisions will be closed using surgical sutures.

Recovery

Your nurse will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions at your pre-operative visit and will review them again prior to your discharge home. Adhering to these instructions is essential for making sure your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.

A special surgical bra will need to be worn during the first part of the recovery process. This bra will provide additional support and protection for the healing tissues. Swelling and bruising will be present but should fade away over the coming days.

Recovery time is about two weeks, and most patients take pain medication for a few days. Patients can typically return to work within 1-2 weeks, but heavy lifting, pushing or pulling should be avoided for the first 8-12 weeks following your surgery. You will need to wait for swelling to dissipate and for the implants to settle before you can see your full results.

The consultation is an essential part of the process and provides the patient with an opportunity to ask any questions they may have regarding the procedure and their recovery.
