What is a breast lift surgery with implants?
A breast lift surgery, combined with a breast augmentation, is the procedure of choice to address sagging breasts (breast ptosis) and to simultaneously add more breast volume. In addition to lifting the breasts, this procedure simultaneously adds volume and fullness to the breasts, particularly in the upper pole, to help you achieve the most aesthetically appealing result.
A breast lift and a breast augmentation (implants) are often combined together in a single procedure. Because a breast lift (mastopexy) only addresses sagging breasts (ptosis) without adding breast volume, a breast augmentation is an excellent adjunctive procedure to achieve more volume. The upper pole of the breast is also fuller when combining a breast lift with implants, a result that is more difficult to achieve with a breast lift alone.
Who is the right candidate for a breast lift with an implant?
A mastopexy with implants is a procedure that is suitable for women of all ages who seek to rejuvenate the appearance of their breasts. A breast lift with an augmentation is often desired by women who are experiencing dropping or sagging breasts (ptosis), with descended nipples. In addition to lifting the breasts, this procedure appeals to women who desire to also have fuller and rounder breasts.
A breast lift with implants is commonly performed in a single stage. Certain women are not candidates for a combined procedure. For example, smokers and patients with severe sagging will undergo a breast lift and a breast-augmentation (implants) separately. The procedures are separated to decrease the risk of complications and to achieve the desired aesthetic result. An experienced surgeon will help you determine if you are a candidate for a single-stage procedure.
What does a breast lift with implants consist of?
There are several techniques for carrying out a mastopexy with a breast augmentation. This can be performed under general anesthesia. See mastopexy and breast augmentation for more details.
There are five main objectives of a breast lift with a breast augmentation:
- Restore the youthful appearance of the breasts by elevating the descended nipples.
- Achieve perkier breasts by lifting and reshaping the breast tissue
- Tighten the breast envelope by removing excess skin
- Add volume and fullness to the breasts with implants
- Add fullness in the upper pole of the breast (visible area when wearing a bra).
Following your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss the most suitable technique with you, and whether you are candidate for a single-stage procedure.
