Breast augmentation can make the breasts bigger, but it doesn’t lift them. A breast lift can take care of sagging, but it doesn’t add volume. Combining the two can give you the improvements you want with a single surgery and recovery period. As breast enhancement specialists, the board-certified plastic surgeons at United Plastic Surgery can give you fuller, shapelier breasts by combining breast lift surgery with implants in Newport Beach and Temecula.
Breast augmentation with lift, also called a breast lift with implants, makes the breasts fuller with breast implants and lifts the breasts (and areolas if desired) by removing excess skin and sculpting breast tissue.
Our plastic surgeons combine breast augmentation and breast lift surgery to provide multiple improvements with a single surgery and recovery period. This procedure can enhance the breasts in a variety of ways, including:
Breast augmentation with a lift involves the decisions needed for both a breast lift and a breast augmentation.
Dr. Larson and Dr. Pham are experienced, highly trained board-certified plastic surgeons united in their dedication to superior patient care and surgical outcomes. They are committed to each patient from the initial consult to surgery to a personal phone call after surgery and beyond.
Our plastic surgeons perform breast enhancement surgery as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. After making the incisions, the surgeon creates a pocket to insert the breast implant. Next, he shapes the breast tissue to ensure the nipple is in the desired position on the breast. He may reduce the size of the areola as well.
Once he has created the desired breast shape, the surgeon tightens the skin, removes the excess, and closes the incisions with dissolvable sutures below the skin. In some cases, the surgeon uses fat transfer to further enhance the shape of the breast or cleavage area. Once he has completed the procedure, the surgeon places protective tape over the incisions and wraps the breasts with a supportive surgical bra.
Much like breast augmentation, most patients are ready to return to school, work, and nonstrenuous activities about 2 to 4 weeks after breast lift with implant surgery.
Recovery after breast augmentation and lift depends on the specifics of the surgery and the patient. In general, expect the following milestones and timeline:
