Breast Lift Surgery With Implants Procedure Process 

Breast Lift Surgery With Implants 

Breast lift with implants cosmetic surgery combines mastopexy (breast lift) with breast augmentation (breast implants) for enhance breast appearance or for reconstructive purposes. Both procedures are executed in a single operative session.  

The lift helps position the breasts at a higher, more youthful level, while the implants provide volume and fullness to the upper pole of the breasts. The combined procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and may take about two to three hours.  

Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides breast lift with implants surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.  

Procedure  

Following general anesthesia, your surgeon will place the incisions in pre-planned locations to perform breast lift with implants plastic surgery. At first, the breast augmentation will be addressed so that the surgeon has a clear idea of how much of excess breast tissue to remove during the breast lift.  

Your surgeon may create an inframammary incison (under the breast crease) to place the implants below the pectoral muscle. This incision will provide a direct access to the chest muscle and will also become a part of the breast lift incision in the second stage of the procedure.  

The surgeon’s goal will be to keep the incisions discreet and utilize the same incisions for both implant placement and lifting of the breast tissue. The surgeon may use an anchor incision to perform the breast lift. With this versatile technique, it is possible to address the loose breast skin both horizontally and vertically while performing the lift.  

The overall procedure will increase the size of the breasts, correct their droopiness, create a tighter and firmer breast appearance, and raise the position of the nipples and areolas. After the procedure, your surgeon will close the wounds using dissolvable or removable sutures.  

Your breasts will be wrapped in bandages for the first few days before they are replaced with a special surgical bra.  

Results  

You can notice the results almost immediately after your breast implants with lift plastic surgery. But the initial swelling and bruising will take time to resolve, and the results will become clearer over the next several weeks and months as the healing is complete.  

While your breasts will continue to age even after the procedure, you can expect to enjoy the results of your breast lift with implants surgery for a long time. If you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, you should be able to increase the longevity of your surgical outcome.  

Most women are highly satisfied with their final results because the breast augmentation with breast lift surgery enhances your upper body appearance in multiple ways, providing a fuller and perkier figure, while adding a desirable cleavage.  

Before you go ahead with your surgery, share with your surgeon if you have any plans to undergo a major weight loss or to have children in the near future. This will allow your surgeon to customize your surgical plan or make recommendations that are appropriate to your unique needs.

What are the pros and cons of breast lift surgery with implants?

Breast lift surgery with implants

Breast augmentation with breast lift combined cosmetic surgery has emerged as a popular procedure for women over in recent years. Advancements in surgical techniques have made the procedure less invasive and more effective.  

During your initial consultation, your surgeon will explain to you the advantages and limitations of breast lift with implants in comparison to individual breast augmentation and breast lift procedures. You should freely ask questions from your surgeon and clear all your doubts in order to make an informed choice.

Pros of a Combined Surgery 

While you have the choice of undergoing breast augmentation and breast lift plastic surgeries separately at different times, there are inherent advantages of a combined procedure that you should carefully consider.  

In a combined surgery, you will only need to visit the surgery center once, receive general anesthesia only once, and undergo the procedure only at one time. This will reduce your risk in two ways. You will be exposed to the inherent surgery risks and complications only once, and you will face the risks of general anesthesia only once.  

Since you have chosen a combined procedure, you will go through a pre-surgery preparatory process just one time. Post-surgical recovery process will also occur just once, which means your post-op downtime and discomfort will occur only once.  

Most importantly, your surgeon will have a greater opportunity to perform the procedure more comprehensively and conservatively when you are combining breast lift with breast implants surgery. The surgeon will aim to utilize common incisions to perform tightening of the breast tissue as well as creation of implant pockets to place the breast implants.  

How much excessive breast skin should be removed can be determined more accurately in relation to the implant size you have chosen. This will allow your surgeon to create more natural looking and attractive results.  

A combined surgery is also more cost-effective compared to two separate surgeries because the operating room costs, surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist’s fee, and pre- and post-op costs will be incurred just once. 

Cons of a Combined Surgery 

Although the surgeon can create better outcomes using the same incisions in a combined surgery, the overall procedure will be more invasive compared to a single surgery. As a result, your post-surgical recovery time may be slightly longer compared to what you would undergo after a single surgery.  

The cost-effectiveness is higher in a combined procedure, but the upfront costs that you will have to pay for a combined breast lift with implants surgery will be higher than those of a single surgery.  

Finally, the risks involved in the surgery, such as implant failure due to capsular contracture, remain unchanged whether you undergo a combined procedure or a standalone breast lift or breast augmentation surgery.
