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.
IS A BREAST LIFT WITH IMPLANTS RIGHT FOR ME?
Healthy individuals are ideal candidates for a breast lift with implants, since certain pre-existing conditions can negatively affect the surgical process.
Candidates who have lost the firmness, shape, and volume of their breasts after pregnancy or weight loss are good candidates for this procedure. Patients who want to realistically enhance the aesthetics of their breasts are excellent candidates.
A breast lift with implants is not recommended for individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to lose weight.
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. 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. 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.
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.
Anesthesia will be administered to the patient prior to making an incision. Incisions will be made depending on the treatment plan. The breast implants will be inserted inside tissue pockets created in the breasts. Excess skin will also be removed, and the remaining skin will be tightened.
This procedure may include repositioning/resizing the nipples. The procedure will end with the closing and dressing of the incisions.
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. 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.
