About Breast Lift and Augmentation

Our breast augmentation surgeon can create fuller, firmer breasts to complement your natural body curvature with a breast lift or breast augmentation. We use advanced breast surgery techniques that result in a more natural shape and a quick recovery from your plastic surgery. For breast enlargement surgery, modern implants offer the most natural-looking and minimally scarring methods.

Breast Reduction

Overly large breasts can cause pain and discomfort, limit physical activities, and make clothing difficult to fit. Our breast reduction surgery procedures can provide outstanding aesthetic results and give you the freedom you desire.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation or breast enlargement is a surgical procedure involving the use of saline or silicone breast implants to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts.

Breast implants can be round or tapered (tear drop) in shape; they can be textured (rough) or smooth. Defining the patient’s body shape and bone structure as well as taking careful measurements help determine which implants to use and where to place them (behind or in front of the chest muscle). A very thin individual may need the implant placed behind the muscle to achieve a more natural, less rounded appearance to the upper portion of the breast.

Procedure
  • Our breast augmentation surgeon will make an incision usually under the breast in its crease; a saline implant is placed either above or below the chest muscle.
  • The breast surgery takes about 1 to 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia with return home the same day.
  • Breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a mastopexy (breast lift).

Recovery

The bandage is removed after 1-3 days of the plastic surgery and stitches are removed after approximately 1 week. A surgical bra is worn full-time for 3-4 weeks following surgery. Patients should avoid lifting anything over their head for about a week. Most return to work within a few days, depending on the level of activity required.

Results

The goal of breast enlargement surgery is to have fuller, larger breasts. Many patients find augmenting their breasts improves their body proportions by balancing their top half with the bottom half, making clothes easier to fit. In addition to size, beautiful breasts have other details, such as a gentle slope, a central nipple position, and cleavage, which can all be enhanced through this breast plastic surgery.

Breast Lift

A breast lift (mastopexy) is a breast surgery procedure to lift and reshape sagging breasts. The size, shape, and extent of sagging of your breasts will determine the best mastopexy technique.

Procedure
  • The most common technique of breast lift surgery involves 3 incisions: one around the areolas, another vertically from the areolas to the crease of the breast, and a third along the breast crease.
  • The excess skin is removed and the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher, more pleasing position.
  • This plastic surgery takes about 1 to 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia with return home the same day.
  • The breast lift can be performed in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery.

Recovery

The bandage is removed after 1-3 days. A surgical bra is worn full-time for 3-4 weeks following surgery. Stitches are removed after approximately 1 week. Some bruising and swelling are seen for 2-3 weeks. Patients should avoid lifting anything over their head for a few weeks. Most patients return to work within a week depending on their level of activity.

Results

A mastopexy raises and firms the breasts, resulting in a more pleasing, youthful breast contour. Patients who wish larger breasts may also enhance their breast size at the same time with breast implants.
