Breast Lift and Augmentation
What is it?
Certain patients require both a volume and shape improvement with the structure of an implant, and also elevation of the nipple and removal of sagging breast tissue. Aside from certain particular situations, these surgeries can typically be done at the same time. The incision line is typically a lollipop incision unless the anatomy dictates an anchor incision. Patients find the results to be transformative and impactful.
Am I a candidate?
Candidates for this surgery have both upper pole deflation as well as sagging breast tissue. Up to date breast imaging to screen for breast cancer will be mandatory if you are over 40 years of age.
Before & Afters
What is recovery like?
Recovery following breast lift is approximately 2 weeks without exertional activity. At 6 weeks, you may return to gym activities; this includes lifting weights. All stitches dissolve under the skin. You will have a compression bra to wear 24/7 for the first 2 weeks and then you may switch to your own sports bra with good support. You will have to sleep on your back for 6 weeks, as well. Scarring will fade over the first year. The implants will take 3-6 months to settle into their position.
