A breast lift procedure can re-shape the breasts while adding volume at the same time. Adding an implant to a breast lift will also allow for a much longer lasting result compared to a breast lift without an augmentation. Breasts can become droopy and incur volume-loss due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, significant changes in weight, or aging. Women who are unhappy with the shape or size of their breasts can achieve naturally younger-looking breasts by combining a breast lift with an augmentation.
A Breast Lift Can:
- Increase fullness and projection of your breasts (Most affective with an implant)
- Improve balance of breast contours
- Correct drooping, or sagging breasts
- Place the nipple and areola to more youthful position
- Reduce healing time with a combination-procedure
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
How Does It Work?
A breast lift entails making an incision on the breast below and around the areola as well as in the breast crease. An implant of your choosing (saline or silicone gel) will be inserted for fuller, firmer breasts. Dr. Harris will remove excess breast tissue, reposition the nipple and areola higher, and get rid of unwanted skin tissue while molding the remaining tissue around the implant. At your initial consultation with Dr. Harris, you’ll be given an in-depth procedure overview.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Results from your breast lift and augmentation will be immediate and long-lasting. Directly following your procedure, you’ll be able to see noticeably fuller, more youthful appearing breasts. Continued improvement will occur as swelling begins to dissipate. Final results will become evident over several months while your new breasts settle.
Does It Hurt?*
Your procedure will be done either under general anesthesia or via IV sedation and local anesthesia to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Several days post-surgery will be the most painful and should be tamed with pain medication. The majority of women note significantly less discomfort after only 1-week. You may feel sore or more easily exhausted for several weeks after your lift/augmentation procedure. However, you can return to work and non-strenuous activities within 1-2 weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for a breast lift with augmentation surgery if you’d like to increase the size and enhance the shape of your breasts. Ideal candidates for any surgery are those who are in good overall physical health. Smokers must abstain from any nicotine products for at least 6 weeks before and after surgery.
