Breast Lift + Augmentation Conveniently located to serve Newport Beach and Orange County
A breast lift with augmentation is a combination procedure for women who desire fuller and larger breasts that also have a perkier and more youthful appearance. The procedure is the ideal choice for women who have noticeable breast sagging and want more comprehensive results from their breast-enhancement procedure.
At Allure MD, we strive to provide our patients with beautiful and natural-looking results that fully satisfy their aesthetic needs. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Rosing has been extensively trained to perform aesthetic surgery of the breast and can provide you with excellent results from your augmentation mastopexy.
The Benefits of a Breast Lift with Augmentation
A breast lift is designed to enhance the shape of the breasts by repositioning the tissues so that the breasts sit higher on the chest. This creates a more youthful and perky appearance. The tissues are also reshaped to create a naturally rounder look based on the aesthetic preferences of the patient. A breast lift does not increase the size of the breasts.
Breast augmentation, on the other hand, focuses on increasing the size of the breasts through the use of implants. While the implants can give the breasts a fuller and rounder appearance, they do not correct breast sagging and can in fact cause further sagging.
Combining a breast augmentation with a breast lift addresses the most common aesthetic issues women have with the appearance of their breasts: breasts sagging and smaller size. Sagging can be present early on in life once the breasts have fully developed, and it can also occur as women get older due to the effects of aging.
What to Expect
A breast lift with implants is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Rosing will go over the information needed to prepare for the procedure during the initial consultation. This includes any medications or supplements that should be avoided prior to surgery.
The procedure typically takes around two to three hours to complete. The type and size of the implants used and the locations of the incisions will be determined based on the aesthetic needs of the patient. This will be discussed during the consultation process.
The implants are inserted and carefully positioned in the breasts. Any excess tissue is then trimmed to eliminate wrinkling and sagging. The breasts and implants are lifted upwards and higher on the chest. Finally, the incisions are tightly sutured closed to ensure the breasts have a tight and youthful appearance with smooth contours.
Recovering From a Breast Lift with Augmentation
The breasts will be bandaged and wrapped immediately following the augmentation-mastopexy procedure. During the first few weeks of the recovery process, a special surgical bra will need to be worn to provide additional support. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are to be expected but will dissipate over the next few weeks.
Most patients will need to take around two weeks off from work depending on the amount of physical activity required. Heavy lifting and strenuous activity will need to be avoided for a longer period of time to allow the body to fully heal.
