A Breast Lift with Implants Can Address Size and Contour
An augmentation mastopexy, or a breast lift with implants, is a procedure that can help enhance the volume and shape of your breasts in a single surgery. Using our in-office BodyLogic™ system, which precisely assesses your natural breasts and generates previews of your surgery outcomes, Dr. Bruce Hermann can help you determine the size and type of implant that will best help you achieve your desired results. Our office in Denton, TX, combines this state-of-the-art technology and a dedication to patient education to help you feel confident and comfortable about your upcoming cosmetic procedure.
Candidates for Surgery
To help you decide whether you need an augmentation alone, a breast lift on its own, or a breast lift complemented with implants, we will first assess the current condition of your breasts, review your areas of concern, and discuss your desired outcomes. A breast lift with implants can generally address:
- Age-related sagging
- Stretched or drooping areolas
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Disproportionately small breasts
- Loss in volume after weight loss
- Post-pregnancy concerns
As with any cosmetic surgery, you should be healthy and quit any habits that might conflict with your healing—such as smoking. Prior to surgery, Dr. Hermann and his staff will provide detailed instructions to help you feel prepared on the day of your procedure.
Your Initial Consultation
A breast lift alone will not add volume to your existing cup size. After a breast lift, some patients experience a loss in volume when excess skin is removed. These patients may choose to add implants to improve the shape, projection, and size of their chest. If you decide to add implants to your breast lift procedure, Dr. Hermann will provide insight on the advantages and disadvantages of each type of implant to choose one that is right for your needs and expectations.
Rather than recovering from two separate surgeries, patients who choose a breast lift with implants will only need to undergo one procedure.
Benefits of Breast Lift with Implants
Following a breast lift with implants, you can generally expect your breasts to be higher up on your chest, perkier in projection, and larger. Rather than undergoing a lift alone or an augmentation alone, there are some benefits to combining the procedures.
Combining two procedures in one helps you achieve more comprehensive results. In addition to addressing the size of your breasts, you can address cosmetic concerns such as the position and size of your areola, sagging skin, and projection, giving your physique a more contoured shape overall.
Rather than recovering from two separate surgeries, patients who choose a breast lift with implants will only need to undergo one procedure. This means that you can recover from both procedures during the same time period without taking time off of work for two separate surgeries and recoveries.
New or Expectant Mothers
If you are planning to have more children, it is recommended that you wait before considering a breast lift with implants. Pregnancy can dramatically change your body as well as reverse the effects of your procedure. New mothers should wait until they are done breastfeeding before scheduling any kind of breast surgery. An augmentation mastopexy can be performed on its own or as part of a mommy makeover, which combines breast and body contouring procedures to address your post-pregnancy concerns.
