If your concerns are breast sagging (ptosis) AND you want fuller, rounder breasts, you may benefit from a combined procedure with a breast lift and augmentation. Breast augmentation can increase your breast size, and mastopexy or breast lift can reshape the breast and reposition the nipple on the breasts. Combining breast enhancement with mastopexy will give your breasts a completely new look, which may be exactly what you are looking for.
Breast augmentation with mastopexy is performed quite frequently at McLean Plastic Surgery. To find out if this is the right procedure for you, our surgeons will evaluate your breasts and your goals during the consultation. They will recommend the correct procedure that is the best in order to achieve the breasts you desire.
Benefits of a Breast Lift with Augmentation
Women may lose breast volume with age, weight loss or after pregnancy, leaving the breast skin stretched and causing the breast to sag. A breast lift removes the extra skin and elevates the nipple to more youthful position, but sometimes, the breast will still have a flat or small appearance. In this case, addition of a breast implant will help restore volume and shape.
Breast lift with augmentation offers:
- Repositioning and raising breasts
- Restoring volume and symmetry to the breast shape and size
- Tightens loose skin
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Lift with Augmentation?
If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, and your nipple position is low, you may be a suitable candidate for a breast lift with augmentation. The ideal breast lift with augmentation candidate often has lost breast volume and has excess skin after pregnancy, weight loss or just from the natural aging process.
You are a good candidate if you:
- Have excess breast skin
- Desire larger, fuller breasts
- Are in good general health
- Do NOT smoke
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure
- Are willing to closely follow pre and postoperative instructions
The above list is a general guideline of candidacy and by no means intended to be a substitute for meeting personally with Dr. Duda or Dr. Anderson. The best way to find out if breast augmentation is right for you, is to schedule a consultation at McLean Plastic Surgery. During this confidential meeting, your goals will be discussed, your questions will be answered and your candidacy for breast surgery will be determined.
Your Breast Lift with Augmentation Procedure
Breast lift with augmentation at McLean Plastic Surgery is a fully-customized procedure designed specifically for you. The surgery first includes placement of a breast implant to provide the desired volume, followed with a breast lift to remove the excess skin, reposition the nipple, and improve the breast shape. The location of the incisions will be determined by the amount of excess skin and nipple position. We will assist you in choosing the appropriate size implant and profile for the look you would like to achieve. You can also visualize the change in your breast size and shape with 3D computer imaging with the Vectra XT
