Breast Augmentation with Lift

Conveniently located to serve Dallas-Ft. Worth and Denton County

The breast augmentation with lift in Plano is a procedure that combines two cosmetic breast surgeries: the breast lift and breast augmentation. The combination of these two approaches is ideal for women who want to achieve breast profiles that look younger and fuller. It is quite popular among mothers who want to get their bodies back to how they were prior to pregnancy.

How Does a Breast Augmentation with Lift Work?

Two of the most common breast issues that women experience are sagging breasts and loss of breast volume. Breast augmentation addresses the breast volume issue, but it cannot restore breast shape or perkiness.

That’s where the breast lift comes into the picture. Combining both procedures works wonders to eliminate sagging while also adding size and projection. The best part is about combining breast augmentation with a breast lift is that only a single recovery/downtime period is needed.

Preparation for the Procedure

Before a breast augmentation with lift (also called an augmentation mastopexy), you will need to arrange a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon. During this consultation, you will share your medical history, including any current medications or supplements, any past procedures, and any allergies. The surgeon may ask you whether there is a history of breast cancer in your family and if you are currently experiencing any medical conditions.

You’ll have to undergo a physical exam. The surgeon may also take photographs of your breasts to conduct necessary assessments. After the physical exam, talk to the surgeon regarding the potential risks involved and what you hope to achieve through the procedure from an aesthetic perspective.

During the preparation phase, you may be required to maintain a specific body weight, stop drinking and smoking, and/or steer clear from certain medications.

The Procedure

After anesthesia is administered, the surgeon will create an incision to insert the saline or silicone breast implant. A pocket is created in the tissues to make space for the implant, which is inserted into the pocket and positioned properly.

Next, excess skin is removed from the breasts’ bottom portion, and the remaining skin is tightened. The areolae are repositioned and resized as necessary. When the fullness across your breast’s lower and upper portions is appropriate, the incisions are closed with sutures and the procedure is complete.

Recovery After Breast Augmentation

Following the breast augmentation with lift process, you will experience bruising and swelling. These are minor and typically resolve on their own within a two-week period. Soreness around the incisions is common and will go away within a few months. You may also experience temporary numbness that lasts for five to six weeks. To manage side effects, you will be prescribed pain medication.

To ensure a smooth recovery, make sure that you don’t engage in any strenuous activities for several weeks. Remember to follow all the instructions provided by your surgeon, and don’t be hesitant to schedule further appointments if you need support and guidance during recovery.

The Cost of a Breast Augmentation with Lift

When arranging your breast augmentation with lift, it is important to consider procedure price. The total cost of a breast lift with implants is affected by factors like the price of the chosen implants, the techniques utilized, the amount of tissue removed, the anesthesia used, and the total surgical time.
