The Benefits of a Breast Augmentation with Lift
Pairing a breast augmentation with a breast lift offers the following benefits:
- Requires only a single recovery/downtime period
- Offers safe and reliable results
- Is less expensive than undergoing both treatments separately
- Provides the most value for your time and money
Why Do People Pair a Breast Augmentation and a Breast Lift?
Breast augmentation involves the use of breast implants to increase volume and projection. It is popular with women who want to restore their youthful volume after breastfeeding or dramatic weight loss.
However, breast augmentations completely fail to reduce sagging or restore perkiness. This is why augmentations are commonly paired with breast lifts.
Breast lifts reduce natural drooping of the breasts, also called breast ptosis. Ptosis occurs due to the aging process, the natural downward pull of gravity, breastfeeding, and dramatic weight loss.
Breast lifts create a perkier and more aesthetically pleasing shape by removing excess skin and reshaping the existing tissue. The skin is tightened and appears springier as a result. The areolae can also be resized and repositioned.
Here’s a simple, straightforward test to determine if sagging is present: Place a pencil horizontally as high as possible into your breast crease. If the pencil stays in place, you have signs of drooping. If the nipples/areolae are falling below the pencil, there is severe drooping.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift with Implants?
Almost all women above 21 years of age in general good health can opt for this popular combination surgery. Non-smokers are ideal, as smoking can negatively affect the healing process.
This combination treatment, often called an augmentation mastopexy, typically uses general anesthesia and takes around 2 and a half hours to complete. Incisions are created to insert the silicone or saline breast implants, which are then positioned symmetrically. Excess skin is removed, and the tissues are reshaped. Incisions are closed with sutures.
The Healing and Recovery Process
You will be provided a surgical bra after your breast augmentation with lift. It must be worn during recovery in order to support the tissues as they heal. Strenuous exercise must be avoided for 4 weeks post-treatment, but most patients can return to work after just 2 weeks. Avoid sleeping on your front, and avoid any sexual activity for a week or two.
Dr. Darrow will prescribe pain medication if you need it, but you must avoid smoking, drinking, and engaging in sudden weight-change regimens immediately after your treatment.
The changes to your breasts will be immediate, but their shape will undergo minor changes for the new few weeks as the implants settle and swelling decreases. Your new breasts should be dramatically improved in both aesthetics and proportions.
After checking in after a 5-year period, more than 98% of those who have undergone this treatment report being highly satisfied with their long-lasting natural-looking results.
Breast Augmentation with Lift Cost
The cost of a breast augmentation with lift depends on the exact techniques used for the patient. Additionally, the overall time required to perform the surgery, the implants selected, the amount of tissue removed, and the anesthesia used all affect the final price.
