What to Expect from a Breast Augmentation with Lift

Breast augmentation with a lift is commonly done as an outpatient procedure where you will be sedated with general anesthesia. Typically, the breast lift is performed first. The loose skin is removed and the surrounding tissue is tightened. Dr. Hwang will discuss the options available for breast implants before your surgery so your implants can be easily placed. In some patients, the nipple or areola will need to be repositioned to better match the new breast size and shape. After the procedure, you should abstain from any strenuous activity for about 2 – 6 weeks. Breasts will begin to settle into their final position in about 3 – 6 months, and patients are often thrilled with their results.

Breast Augmentation with Lift FAQS

Will a breast augmentation with a lift correct sagging? The benefit of a breast augmentation with a lift is that it increases the volume of your breasts while also correcting sag by removing excess skin. The breast lift will also adjust the position of your native breast tissue so your results are perky. This is crucial since adding volume to breasts with mild sagging may create a less than ideal result if a breast lift is not performed to correct the sag. To address sagging, a lift should be performed first and then implants or a fat transfer can be added. In your consultation with Dr. Hwang, he will listen to your needs and wants, before examining the condition of your chest. Following this, he can give you his opinion on whether your goals require a lift, implants, or a combination of both.

Which incision is best for my surgery? Incision patterns for breast surgery have become more advanced, with techniques being developed that help minimize the appearance of scarring. The surgical incision that is best for you will be chosen based on the severity of sag and the type of implants being used. To correct moderate to severe sag, an anchor-shaped incision pattern is usually best. When developing your surgical plan, Dr. Hwang will discuss incision options and which fits your needs. Regardless of the pattern is chosen, Dr. Hwang makes careful incisions for natural-looking results.

How long will my results last? If you don't have massive weight fluctuations or get pregnant, the results from a breast augmentation with a lift can last many years. While implants can last for many years, they should be assessed every few years to check their condition. During surgery, Dr. Hwang places the implants with a technique that reduces breast sagging. This helps your results last for longer. It's important to understand that while a breast lift with augmentation can offer amazing results, natural aging will continue. In time, you may start to develop loose skin and sagging again, but this can be corrected with another surgery.

How bad is the scarring? Dr. Hwang performs breast augmentation with a lift so all incisions are small and thin. He does his best to make incisions in areas that are less visible, like in the folds of the breast or on the border of the areola. With proper care, the scars from your breast augmentation with a lift will, in time, lighten so they blend more with your natural skin. Dr. Hwang or someone on his team will talk to you about scar care instructions you should follow after your surgery so your scars heal correctly.
