The bust is a defining factor in a woman’s sense of femininity and self-confidence. Various events throughout life, on top of the body’s natural aging process, can have a profound impact on the appearance of the breasts, resulting in changes that are usually unwanted.

Sagging, drooping, and volume loss can all result from events such as weight loss or pregnancy, although they can also be a normal part of the aging process. Whatever the case may be, a breast augmentation with lift procedure can improve the situation.

What is a breast augmentation with lift?

To put it simply, a breast augmentation with lift is an operation specially tailored for women who would like to address their sagging breasts with a lift but would also like to see an increase in volume by using implants. This combination surgical method incorporates a skin tightening technique, which works by removing excess skin and elevating the breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. While some women already have enough breast tissue to achieve their desired look, there are many who would like to add implants in order to increase the actual breast size.

Determining the need for a lift is a vital part of the consultation process. Patients must understand breasts with pronounced sagging could turn out poorly if implants are placed without performing a simultaneous lift. Breast augmentation with a lift is able to give the bust a remarkable aesthetic with improved definition.

What are the benefits of Breast Augmentation with Lift?

  • A firmer aesthetic in the breasts
  • Improved nipple shape
  • A more attractive bust and silhouette
  • A revitalized breast aesthetic
  • Reduced chafing and irritation under the breasts

Who is a good candidate for Breast Augmentation with Lift?

Generally speaking, ideal candidates for a breast augmentation with lift are women who have:

  • Breasts that have a flat or ‘deflated’ look
  • Shifts in breast shape and projection
  • Stretch marks on the breast skin
  • Breasts that hang low on the chest wall
  • Sagging and/or excessively large nipples

As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should be in good overall health, not be smokers, and have a good understanding of the procedure, recovery process, and scarring.

What does the procedure entail?

Breast augmentation with lift is typically performed under general anesthesia and can last anywhere from three and four hours. With a traditional breast augmentation procedure, in which implants are employed, implants are surgically inserted behind each of the patient’s breasts. These implants sit either behind the chest muscles or behind the breast tissue. Implants alone are usually not able to address sagging in the breasts.

When combined with a lift, however, the procedure can simultaneously lift the breasts, give them a rounder shape, and increase the patient’s cup size.

This procedure is usually carried out on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to go through the first night of recovery in the comfort of their own homes. Patients are given thorough post-care instructions, and check-in appointments are scheduled in order to make sure their healing process is going according to plan.

What is the recovery process like?

Most patients are able to return to their daily routines only a few weeks after the procedure. However, all heavy lifting and vigorous exercise need to be avoided for a period of at least three to four months. Patients will be provided with all of the information and materials they need to have a speedy, comfortable recovery.

Patients can get back to work after a period of 1 to 2 weeks, and they should refrain from all strenuous activity for at least 3 weeks. Any visible bruising will resolve within the first 2 weeks, and swelling usually starts to dissipate by the 3-week mark. Patients can receive more information about this part of the healing process during their private consultation.
