Breast lift with implants

What happens during a breast lift with implants? Breast lift with implants cosmetic surgery involves removal of loose breast skin as well as placement of saline or silicone implants to restore a larger and firmer breast appearance. If you are worried about your droopy breasts or downward pointing nipples along with loss of breast volume, you could be a candidate for breast augmentation with lift. 

The advantage with the combined procedure is that you may not require excessively large implants to achieve your desired results. Your surgeon will be able to increase the cup size while also raising your breasts to a more youthful position. Your breasts will acquire a more youthful and natural looking appearance than they would when only one of these procedures is performed independently.  

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides breast lift with implants to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations. 

Candidacy 

If you are seeking larger sized breasts along with a more defined breast contour and a firmer, perkier look, you could be a candidate for breast implant with lift cosmetic surgery.  

Whether you are unhappy with the progressive effects of aging on your breasts, or you have experienced breast volume loss and saggy breasts following pregnancy or a major weight loss, you may correct these conditions with breast augmentation with lift.  

Breast Augmentation Surgery 

Breast augmentation is ideal when you want to increase your breast size. The surgery involves the placement of saline or silicone implants to increase your breast cup size. Breast augmentation currently ranks as the most popular procedure in the US, and breast implant qualities have been approved by the FDA for safety.  

Breast Lift Surgery 

Breast lift surgery, unlike breast augmentation, is designed to restructure loose breast skin, muscle and tissue to provide a subtle lift to the breasts. The procedure involves surgical removal of excess breast skin to create tighter and firmer breasts.  

If the nipples are pointing downwards, the repositioning of the areolas and nipples can be performed to create a natural looking breast appearance.   

Post-operative Recovery 

You may experience some swelling and discomfort in the first week after the breast lift with implants cosmetic surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe some pain medications to keep you comfortable. Temporary drains may be placed in the incision sites after the surgery. These will be removed in a few days as the healing improves.  

You may be required to wear a special surgical bra for several weeks until your new breast shape firms up. In about 10 to 14 days after the procedure, you can resume your daily activities or return to work.  

Post-Surgical Scarring 

Some degree of scarring is unavoidable after a breast implant with lift procedure. However, chances are that the scarring will lesser compared to when both breast lift and augmentation are performed separately. Your surgeon will use the same incisions to perform both procedures at the same time. 

In any case, the incisions will be placed as discreetly as possible to ensure visible scarring is minimal. Plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas for breast augmentation with lift.
