Breast Augmentation with Lift
HOUSTON, TX

This procedure is a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift, and it can help you achieve the full, perky breasts that you’ve always wanted.

Breast Augmentation with Lift

Breast augmentation with lift is a type of plastic surgery that involves both breast implants and an uplift procedure. It is used to enhance the size, shape, and position of a woman’s breasts. The procedure is done by making an incision in the breast area and then placing an implant behind the natural breast tissue or below the muscle. The surgeon will then create an internal pocket for the implant and reposition the tissue for a more aesthetically pleasing look. Finally, the plastic surgeon will use sutures to close the incision and adjust the nipples to their new position. This combination procedure will help to improve both the size and position of the breasts, while also providing a more youthful and attractive appearance.

Candidacy

If you’re considering breast augmentation with lift, there are certain criteria you should consider in order to determine if this procedure is right for you. Breast augmentation with lift is a popular plastic surgery procedure for women who wish to improve the shape and size of their breasts, as well as achieve an overall more youthful appearance. Good candidates for this procedure are generally healthy and non-smokers, who have realistic expectations about the outcome of their surgery. Additionally, they should have good skin elasticity and be physically comfortable with the idea of undergoing surgery. Women who have lost significant volume or elasticity in their breasts due to age, childbirth, or significant weight loss may be ideal candidates for breast augmentation with lift. Ultimately, the best way to determine whether this procedure is right for you is to speak to a qualified plastic surgeon who can assess your individual needs.

Procedure

Breast augmentation with lift is a plastic surgery procedure that combines breast augmentation and breast lift to achieve fuller, higher breasts. During the procedure, an incision is made around the areola, allowing the surgeon to remove excess skin and fat. The breast tissue is then lifted and reshaped, and an implant is inserted to add fullness. The incisions are closed with sutures and the results of the procedure are visible almost immediately. In some cases, the patient may be able to return home the same day after the procedure.

Recovery

The recovery time for breast augmentation with lift will vary depending on the individual, the extent of the surgery, and the techniques used. Generally, most patients can expect to experience some swelling and bruising for a few weeks following the procedure. Pain can be managed with medication prescribed by your surgeon. It is important to rest and take it easy during the initial days of recovery.

For the first 48 hours, you should wear a post-operative bra or bandage to keep the breasts in their correct position. You may also need to wear a compression bandage over this support garment to reduce swelling and aid healing. Your doctor will provide you with detailed instructions regarding how long to wear these garments and when you should shower.

As part of your recovery process, you may need to avoid lifting anything more than 5-10 pounds for several weeks, depending on your surgeon’s advice. To help speed up the healing process, light exercise is recommended such as walking or swimming (with no contact). You will likely be able to resume normal activities after about four to six weeks, depending on how quickly your body heals.

Your surgeon will provide you with detailed instructions regarding when it is safe to return to work and other activities. After a few months, you should be able to enjoy your new look and feel confident about your results.
