Is breast augmentation with a lift right for you?
There are many personal reasons why women look into combining a breast lift with augmentation. It's an ideal choice if you want to significantly rejuvenate your breasts while improving the firmness of your breast skin. You may have developed breast ptosis (sagging) caused by aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss and want to enhance the volume of your breasts while restoring a more youthful look. Dr. Costa will determine if a lift alone will get your desired outcome or if both a lift and breast implants are a better option to attain your aesthetic goals.
how does breast augmentation with a lift work?
A combination breast augmentation with a lift is commonly done at an accredited surgical facility as an outpatient procedure where you will be sedated with general anesthesia. In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is performed first. The excess skin is eliminated, and the soft tissue is smoothed. Dr. Costa will explain the options available for breast implants before your surgery so your implants will be ready for placement. In certain instances, the nipple-areola complex may be moved and resized to match the patient's new breast shape and size.
how long is the recovery from an augmentation with lift?
The recovery timeframe for a breast augmentation with a lift will be different for every patient, but you will probably be well enough to get back to your everyday activities in about a week. However, you should refrain from exercise and strenuous activities for at least 2 – 6 weeks. There will also be mild to moderate inflammation after your surgery that may last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your implants will settle into their final position after several months, at which time you will be able to see your final results.
Breast Augmentation with Lift FAQ
How much does breast augmentation with a lift cost?
A surgical breast augmentation with a lift will be priced based on many factors, like whether you choose implants ( saline or silicone ) or a fat transfer. Additionally, the complexity of the lift will help determine your cost. In your initial consultation, Dr. Christopher Costa will create a custom surgical plan and then estimate your costs. Platinum Plastic Surgery accepts several payment methods and we can help you find low-interest medical financing.
Will a breast augmentation with a lift correct sagging?
The benefit of a breast augmentation with a lift is that it increases the size of your chest while also correcting sag by removing loose skin. The breast lift will also adjust your natural breast tissue – so your results are perky. This is crucial because adding volume to breasts with mild sagging may result in a negative outcome if a breast lift isn't performed to address the sag. If moderate to severe sagging is present, a lift should be performed first, and then implants or a fat transfer can be added. During your initial consultation with Dr. Costa, he will carefully listen to your concerns and wants before examining the condition of your breasts. Following this, he will be able to offer his recommendation on whether you need implants, a lift, or a combination of both.
Which incision is best for my breast augmentation with a lift surgery?
Incision patterns for breast surgery have come a long way in recent years, with techniques being developed that helps minimize the visibility of scars. The actual incision type that is best for your surgery will be chosen based on the type of implants and severity of breast sag. An anchor-shaped incision is most effective when it comes to correcting moderate to severe breast sag. When creating your treatment plan, Dr. Costa will explain incision patterns and which fits your needs. No matter what method is selected, Dr. Costa makes incisions carefully for natural-looking results.
How long will my results last?
As long as you do not have dramatic weight fluctuations or get pregnant, the results from breast surgery can last many years. While both saline and silicone implants can last for many years, they should be assessed every few years to ensure their safety. In the surgery, Dr. Costa sets the implants with a technique that reduces breast sagging. This will help with the long-term outcome. It is important to know that while a breast lift with augmentation can offer a great result, natural aging still occurs. Eventually, you may begin to notice sagging and loose skin again, but this can be improved with a second procedure.
How bad is the scarring from a breast augmentation with a lift?
Dr. Costa performs surgical augmentation with a lift, so all incisions are as small and thin as possible. He does his best to make incisions where they are difficult to see. Two examples of this are incisions in the folds of the breast or on the border of the areola. If you properly care for them, the scars created by your breast surgery will eventually lighten and will blend more with your natural skin. Dr. Costa or someone on his team will talk to you about the scar care instructions you need to follow after your procedure to help your incisions heal smooth and flat.
