    Breast Lift Surgery With Implants Procedure Process 

    Breast Lift Surgery With Implants Procedure Process 

    Breast Lift Surgery With Implants 

    Effects of aging, pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight fluctuations and other factors may take a toll on your breasts. If you have lost breast volume and wish to increase their size, but your breast skin has also lost elasticity, you may not benefit either from breast implants or from breast lift as standalone cosmetic surgery procedures. In these cases, your surgeon may recommend you to go ahead with breast implants with breast lift surgery.  

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast lift with implants surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.  

    A Combined Surgery is More Comprehensive 

    Breast augmentation surgery on its own can only increase your breast size. Therefore, when you are looking to enhance breast volume, but also want to make your breasts appear tighter and firmer, you may not have satisfactory results with breast implants alone.  

    On the other hand, mastopexy or breast lift plastic surgery will only help to tighten the breast tissue, excise the loose breast skin, and raise the nipples to a more youthful position. But this procedure will not improve your breast size.  

    This is where a breast lift with implants surgery will be more comprehensive, and can be the right choice for you if you want both tighter and fuller breasts for a more attractive upper body appearance.  

    Surgical Procedure  

    Breast implants with lift cosmetic surgery is more intricate, and should only be performed a highly skilled and board certified plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will probably suggest an accredited surgery center where this procedure can be safely performed.  

    The combined surgery usually requires general anesthesia. You will asleep throughout the procedure and will no recollection of the surgery when you wake up. The anesthesia will be administered by a qualified anesthesiologist. 

    Once the effect of anesthesia has begun, your surgeon will make incisions in your breasts at the marked locations according to the pre-determined surgery plan. If the incisions are created around the areola, your surgeon will make a second vertical incision from the lower half of the areola to the base of your breast.  

    Your surgeon will place the saline or silicone implants through the incisions, and position over or under the pectoral muscle as per the customized plan. Through the same incisions, the surgeon will then eliminate the excess breast skin and tighten the tissue to create a more youthful and elevated look of your breasts.  

    When breast implant with lift is performed, it is usually necessary to also elevate the nipples to a higher level in order to match with the new, raised look of the breasts. The complete surgery may take about one to three hours, depending on various factors.

    What are the pros and cons of breast lift surgery with implants? 

    Breast lift surgery with implants

    Breast lift and breast augmentation plastic surgery rank among the more popular procedures for cosmetic enhancement. Women who want to increase the size, fullness, and volume of their breasts may choose breast implants. In other cases, where a woman is satisfied with her breast size, but suffers from sagging breasts due to skin laxity, may benefit from a breast lift surgery.  

    However, when a woman needs both increased breast size and firmer, lifted breast position, she may have to choose breast augmentation with lift surgery. This combined surgery offers some definite advantages over a standalone procedure, but it will also have some limitations. During the initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss the pros as well as cons of the procedure in order to help you make an informed decision.

    Combined Surgery – Pros 

    When breast lift is combined with breast implants cosmetic surgery, it effectively becomes a single procedure rather than two separate surgeries being performed at separate times. This creates inherent benefits for you, especially if you are a good candidate for a combined breast procedure.  

    You will require general anesthesia only one time, and you will visit the surgery center only once for your breast augmentation with lift procedure. This reduces your risk in the sense that you will be exposed to the potential side effects and complications related to anesthesia and surgery only once.  

    As the procedure is performed at one time, you will have to go through the pre-operative preparation just one time. A single post-op recovery is involved, and you will experience the post-surgical discomfort and downtime only once.  

    Most importantly, with a combined breast lift with implants plastic surgery, your surgeon will have a better opportunity to create a more conservative and comprehensive surgery plan. The surgeon can ensure that both lifting of the breast tissue and placing of implants is performed using common incisions.  

    The right amount of loose skin removal can be determined and appropriate implant size can be chosen when the surgeon has an opportunity to perform both procedures together.  

    The cost-effectiveness of the procedure also goes up because you will incur pre- and post-op expenses, surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist’s fee, surgery center costs, and costs of medical tests and prescription medications only once.  

    Combined Surgery – Cons  

    Despite a conservative approach for incision placement, a combined breast lift and augmentation surgery will be more invasive than a single procedure. Recovery time will slightly longer too. While the cost-effectiveness is better, the absolute cost of the combined surgery would be higher than that of a standalone procedure.

    What is breast lift surgery with implants? 

    Breast lift surgery with implants

    In some women, not only the breast skin may become loose due to aging, pregnancy, and other factors, but the breast volume may also reduce. This can cause sagging and deflated breasts, which will require a combination of breast lift and breast augmentation to restore a youthful upper body appearance.  

    Breast lift with implants can be performed together in one operative session to create more comprehensive results with just a single cosmetic surgery.  

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast augmentation with lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations. 

    Benefits  

    Breast implants will restore the fullness in the upper pole of the breasts, while breast lift will create firmness and reposition the breasts to an elevated and youthful level. From a cosmetic as well as a reconstructive viewpoint, breast implants with lift plastic surgery is a highly beneficial procedure.  

    You can expect to have fuller, projecting breast appearance, and avoid the scooped out look of the breasts with this combined surgery. Some of the key cosmetic concerns that you can resolve with breast lift with implants surgery include:  

    • Hanging or droopy breasts  
    • Loss of volume in the upper portion of the breasts 
    • Asymmetrical breasts 
    • Loss of breast shape 
    • Creases or stretch marks on the breasts 

    Surgical Procedure  

    Your surgeon may recommend general anesthesia for a comprehensive breast lift with implants surgery. Following anesthesia, your surgeon will create incisions in discreet locations, which could be either around the areolas or under the breast crease. Through the incisions, the surgeon will place the breast implants (usually beneath the pectoral muscle).  

    They will excise the loose skin from the breast and tighten the breast tissue to lift the breasts to a higher position following implant placement. The combined procedure will improve the breast projection as well as fill out the upper portion of your breasts.  

    When both breast implants and breast lift cosmetic surgery are performed together as one procedure, it will usually involve lesser removal of the breast lift. As a result, the subsequent scarring could be reduced. If your breasts are sagging heavily, the surgeon may use a lollipop incision, but otherwise a crescent incision may be used.  

    Cleavage Enhancement 

    If you prefer to have an increased cleavage, your surgeon may be able to do this with a breast implants with lift surgery. The size, shape, and type of your breast implants will be determined based on your anatomical needs and aesthetic goals. You should discuss your preference for an enhanced cleavage at the time when your customized surgical plan for breast augmentation with lift is being formulated. 

    Recovery  

    Recovery process in a combined procedure is not too different from that of a standalone breast lift or breast augmentation plastic surgery. You can expect to go back to work or return to your daily routine in about one to two weeks after the surgery.
