Best Candidates for Breast Augmentation with Lift
For those with multiple concerns about the condition of their chest, a combination breast augmentation with lift may be the best option. This procedure can help women who are unhappy with their chest size, shape, and position on the body and feel self-conscious about it. If you are experiencing these concerns, you may be an ideal candidate for this type of surgery.
Women who are considering breast augmentation with breast lift should be in good health and have a stable, healthy weight. It’s generally advised that you wait until you have completed your family and finished having children before undergoing breast surgery.
What to Expect with Breast Augmentation with Lift
At your first consultation, the physician will carefully examine your breasts to decide if a breast augmentation with lift is the optimal approach to achieve your desired outcome. This examination will involve assessing your breast size and shape, skin quality, and the positioning of your nipples and areolas. During this meeting, you can talk about the results you want to attain and what you can anticipate from your combined breast surgery. It may be useful to bring photos illustrating your ideal breast outcomes to help explain precisely what you’re aiming for.
Your physician will discuss different options for breast implants and placement during your consultation. You can choose between silicone or saline implants, which can be inserted either under the pectoral muscle (submuscular) or directly behind the breast tissue and over the muscle (submammary). Additionally, some women may need to undergo a mammogram prior to surgery.
During your consultation, your physician will talk to you about the different options available for breast augmentation. This procedure can address the size and shape of your breasts, while a breast lift can help improve their position on your body, especially if you’re experiencing drooping or sagging due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, or age. The procedure involves lifting and repositioning the breast tissue through an incision to achieve a more youthful appearance. The location of the incision will depend on your individual anatomy, goals, and the type of implants you’ve chosen.
Breast Augmentation with Lift Recovery & Results
After your breast augmentation with lift, glue will be used to seal the incisions instead of traditional sutures. You won’t have to wear dressings over the incision sites, but you’ll need to wear a soft-cup, front-close bra right after the surgery. This type of bra is designed to provide support and reduce post-op swelling.
Every individual’s recovery process is different, but it’s common for many women to not require drains after their breast augmentation with lift surgery. Additionally, many women choose to go home the same day as their surgery instead of staying overnight. Expect your breasts to be swollen, tender, or bruised right after the procedure, and these symptoms may persist for several days or even weeks. During this time, your results may not be fully visible until the healing process is finished.
It’s crucial to adhere to your doctor’s post-op recovery instructions upon returning home, such as attending all follow-up appointments and taking any prescribed medications, to promote healing and achieve optimal results. A follow-up appointment with your doctor is typically scheduled 2 to 3 weeks after breast augmentation with lift surgery, and many women feel comfortable returning to work at this point. You may not see the final results of your surgery until several months after the procedure.
If you’re looking to address sagging breasts in addition to size and shape concerns, we recommend scheduling a private consultation. Our team can assist you in taking the initial step toward your ideal physique, including achieving the breast size, shape, and position you’ve always desired.
