Benefits of Breast Augmentation with Lift

The most significant benefit of combining breast augmentation and a breast lift is that it increases breast volume while simultaneously repositioning for a fuller and shapelier bust. Some others include the following:

  • The procedure lifts the breasts and improves their shape and projection. It can restore a youthful and perky appearance, address sagging, and create a more aesthetically pleasing contour.
  • If you have asymmetrical breasts, breast augmentation with lift can help achieve a more balanced and symmetrical appearance. The procedure allows Dr. Koonce to customize the adjustments to each breast individually, ensuring a harmonious result.
  • The lift component of the procedure effectively addresses breast sagging, which can occur due to factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging. Breast augmentation with lift can restore a more youthful and rejuvenated look by repositioning the breasts to a higher and more youthful position.
  • Combining breast augmentation and lift in a single surgery can achieve comprehensive results with reduced overall downtime and recovery compared to undergoing separate procedures at different times.

Breast Augmentation with Lift Procedure

The surgery begins with administering anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Dr. Koonce then makes carefully planned incisions depending on the desired outcome and the amount of lifting required. Dr. Koonce lifts and reshapes the breast tissue through these incisions, repositions the nipple and areola to a more youthful position, and removes excess skin. If breast implants are desired, they are inserted either above or below the chest muscle to increase volume and create a fuller appearance. Dr. Koonce then closes the incisions, and the breasts are bandaged to support healing.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Augmentation with Lift

Ideal candidates desire increased breast volume and improved position after experiencing changes due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging, leading to sagging or deflated breasts.

Other candidacy factors include those who:

  • Have breasts that lack firmness or have lost their youthful shape and position
  • Seek to restore fullness, improve breast projection, and achieve a more balanced and proportionate figure
  • Are in good overall health and do not have medical conditions that may interfere with surgery or healing
  • Do not smoke or are willing to quit smoking before and after the procedure, as smoking can negatively impact healing and results
  • Are emotionally and mentally prepared for the physical and emotional changes that come with breast augmentation with lift

Managing a Smooth Recovery Journey

Following the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Koonce.

  • Wearing a supportive bra or compression garment to minimize swelling and stabilize the breasts during healing is recommended.
  • You should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for several weeks to allow the incisions to heal properly.

Dr. Koonce will provide specific instructions regarding post-operative care, including cleaning and caring for the incision sites. You’ll attend follow-up appointments to monitor your healing progress and address concerns. Over time, the swelling will subside, and you will begin to see the final results, enjoying a more lifted, youthful, and enhanced breast appearance.

Breast Augmentation with Lift FAQ

What are the benefits of combining breast augmentation and lift?

Combining breast augmentation and lift allows for increased breast volume, improved shape and projection, restored symmetry, corrected sagging, and enhanced self-confidence. It provides comprehensive results by addressing both volume loss and breast position.

How long does the Breast Augmentation with Lift procedure typically take?

The duration of the procedure varies depending on the specific case, but it generally takes around 2-4 hours. The actual time can vary based on factors such as the extent of lift required and the complexity of the augmentation.

What type of anesthesia is used during the procedure?

Breast augmentation with lift is typically performed under general anesthesia, ensuring you are asleep and comfortable throughout the procedure.

How long do the results of Breast Augmentation with Lift last?

Breast augmentation with lift results are long-lasting, but it is important to note that breast appearance can change over time due to aging and weight fluctuations. Maintaining a stable weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle can help prolong the results.
