What is a breast lift with implants?

Breast implants combined with a breast lift can help women achieve fuller, perkier, and rounder breasts following pregnancy or a significant weight loss.

Ideal candidates for this procedure are women in a general good health and meet the following criteria:

  • Unsupported breast and nipples falling below the breast creases

  • Sagging breast

  • One of your breast is lower than the other

  • You are able to maintain a stable weight

How is the breast lift with implants surgery like?

A breast lift with implants is performed using several techniques depending on the specific profile of your breast (degree of sagging, size, shape, skin elasticity)

In general, a breast lift surgery involves the following steps:

Anesthesia

At the surgery room, you are medicated with general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, depending on your doctor’s recommendation. 

Incisions

Your incision pattern depends on your breast profile. The most common are around the areola; around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease; and around the areola, vertically down from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease.


Reshaping

After the incision, your plastic surgeon then reshapes your breast by removing excess tissue, lifting, and repositioning (or reducing) your areola, and placing the implants, either above or under the muscle.

Incisions closing

The surgery ends with the closing of the incisions with interior stitches to support your breast tissue, skin adhesives, or surgical tape. 

In most cases the incision lines fade and significantly improve over time.

What should I expect during recovery from breast lift with implants surgery?

You should expect a week of downtime from work. 

Your plastic surgeon will advice you to sleep on your back or your side to keep pressure off your breast. He will remove the bandages after a few days. Some stitches dissolve but others are removed by your surgeon.  

Your breasts may be swollen and sore for a few weeks after your surgery.

The support garment should be used for three or four weeks following surgery. Dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions to minimize swelling and support your breasts as they heal.

Avoid lifting and exercise for two to four weeks after your surgery.

Ask your surgeon when it’s the time to resume washing your hair, showering, or sexual activity.

A full recovery following breast lift with takes about six weeks.

What results should I expect from a breast lift with implants surgery?

You should expect an immediate change on your breast contouring after becoming firmer and rounder. 

Maintaining a stable weight helps retain your results. Your breast results and setting takes a few months. 

Results of a breast lift with implants are long-lasting, but maybe not permanent. Large breasts may sag if you gain weight.
