A breast augmentation with lift is for patients who want more volume or fill, but their breasts are too loose or droopy to undergo a breast augmentation alone. If you are satisfied with the size of your breasts, then a breast lift alone might be the right procedure for you. This revolutionary device can take 3D photos of the breasts and simulate the results of the planned surgery on a computer screen, according to the breast lift technique that is chosen and, if implants are to be used, according to the size and shape of the implants you have selected.
At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery our skilled team of certified surgeons offer a number of techniques to properly lift and shape the breasts. Based on this information and a physical examination of your breasts, Dr. Benchetrit will decide whether breast lift surgery is right for you. Some women are dissatisfied with the cosmetic results of breast implants, because their breasts look or feel unnatural or asymmetrical, or they can hear a sloshing sound” from saline-filled implants.
Sagging breasts can have untold effects on your overall self-confidence. If you are dissatisfied with your breasts because they are sagging from having too much skin, you may consider breast lift cosmetic surgery. Mastopexy should give your breasts a more lifted, firmer appearance. The breast enhancement procedure known as breast lift, performed at our Kansas City, Missouri, plastic surgery facility, creates a more youthful, shapelier physique for women who are happy with the size of their breasts but not with the saggy appearance of the breasts.
Numbness in the breasts and nipples should lessen as swelling subsides, although occasionally it lasts for months or even permanently. But by the end of the 6th month of use, the breasts will grow lifted, fuller, and shapelier naturally. If are in generally good health and your breasts are sagging and elongated with nipples that point downward, you may indeed be an excellent candidate for a breast lift; however, it is best to discuss your options with Dr. Austin to determine if this is the best procedure for you.
When combined with breast augmentation, breasts are raised, reshaped, and made larger. Nevertheless, you can typically undergo a second surgery if you are unhappy with the way your breasts look after your first procedure. A breast lift can also improve the shape or symmetry of your breasts. Patients who have previously undergone a breast augmentation in the past can still be good candidates for this procedure to rejuvenate the breasts.
Dr. Greenberg will carefully evaluate your breasts to determine if a breast lift is appropriate or if a simple breast augmentation can be performed. For women who desire breasts that are both more voluminous and located higher on the chest wall, in a more youthful position, combination breast augmentation and breast lift surgery may be the answer. Having overly large breasts is also a common reason for breasts to sag, so patients may choose to combine breast reduction surgery with a lift.
The implant type and size depends on factors such as how much bigger you want your breasts to be, your breast anatomy, skin thickness and elasticity, and body type. The dual plane is a more sophisticated plane in which the upper half of the implant is placed under cover of the muscle to produce implant invisibility while the lower half of the implant lies clear of the muscle so that the breasts appear both softer and more natural.
