Breast implants can add size and shape, but they do not help much with sagging. Women planning implants whose breasts are sagging may benefit from adding a breast implant to the procedure. The experienced Miami plastic surgeons of the Seduction Cosmetic Center discuss this combination surgery.
Formally known as mastopexy, a breast lift involves removing excess skin. The surgeon then reshapes the tissue to lift and tighten the breasts. The nipples and areolas are also raised.
While the breast lift changes the appearance of the breasts, it does not change the size. That is where implants and breast augmentation surgery comes in. Women can choose between saline or silicone implants.
The result is a more youthful, rounded appearance, with decades taken off the breasts.
Breast Lift and Implant Candidates
Women with the following conditions are often good candidates for breast lift and implant surgery:
- Changes after weight loss
- Flat, long breasts
- Downward-pointing nipples
- Sagging breasts
- Uneven breasts
Pregnancy can really cause breasts to sag. However, women who still plan to have children may want to wait until after their last child is born to undergo this surgery. While is it perfectly fine to get pregnant after a breast lift and implant procedure, it can make nursing more difficult.
Overall, anyone in good health who is unhappy with her breasts may prove a suitable candidate for a breast lift and implant procedure.
Breast Lift and Implant Benefits
When you undergo a breast lift and implant procedure at the same time, the implants will not require as much volume as they would if you were solely having augmentation.
Needless to say, the combination procedure is less expensive than having them performed individually.
Having these procedures done together also lessens recovery time. Expect to take at least a week off from work to recuperate. If your job requires a lot of physical activity, two weeks is recommended.
Avoid vigorous exercise for at least three weeks, or as per your surgeon’s advice. While there is swelling and bruising after the surgery, both should resolve within two to three weeks. Your breasts are bandaged for the first week, and you must not use underwire bras for a few months.
