Breast Lift + Augmentation New York City
Mastopexy Augmentation is lifting and augmenting the breast at the same time. It is often indicated for ladies who have both deflated and droopy breasts after childbirth. This procedure combines techniques and concepts from both breast augmentation and breast lift.
What is Mastopexy Augmentation?
When you undergo a Mastopexy Augmentation, Dr. Lao will combine an implant with a breast lift. During this procedure, both nipples will be moved into a tighter, more elevated position which creates more fullness in your breasts.
Who are the Best Candidates for a Breast Lift with Implants?
Ideal candidates for a breast lift with implants are women who desire larger breasts and feel their current breasts sag or have lost shape and volume. Women undergoing the procedure should be in good physical health, not smoke, and have realistic expectations. Dr. Lao will perform an initial assessment of your body and ask about your medical history to determine if mastopexy augmentation is the right procedure for you.
What are the Benefits of a Breast Lift with Implants?
In our experience, our patients have seen a multitude of advantages with their procedures such as:
Elevated nipple-areolar complex
Improved overall breast contour
Increased breast volume and fullness
More youthful position of your chest wall
Reduction in areola size
What’s the First Step?
The first step to getting a breast lift with augmentation is to book a consultation with Dr. William Lao. During your consultation, you’ll be able to ask questions, meet the team, and listen to Dr. Lao’s expert breast recommendations. If you and Dr. Lao both feel that getting a breast lift with augmentation is the best aesthetic service for your needs, surgery will be booked and we’ll provide you with pre and postoperative instructions.
Before surgery, you and Dr. Lao will discuss the incision placement and implant size and type. Please be very honest with Dr. Lao about your goals and medical history, as that will help us lead to optimal results.
What to Expect on the Day of Mastopexy Augmentation
Mastopexy augmentation is one of the most challenging breast procedures. There are many factors to calculate into the surgery including how high the nipple should be raised along with considerations of how big the breast can be augmented. Putting an implant or using one’s fat increases the volume of the breast but at the same time the breast skin envelope needs to be reduced to elevate the nipple; these are two opposing forces in surgery.
The augmentation part can be done with either autologous fat or saline/silicone implants. The breast lift portion of the procedure, however, is more variable on the individual surgeon’s experience and preference. Often excess skin needs to be removed while hiding scars in inconspicuous locations. One of the additional benefits of this procedure is that the enlarged areola can be often corrected at the same time.
Time: 3-4 hours
Ambulate the night of surgery
Shower 2 days after surgery
3 to 5 days off work
6 weeks from heavy lifting and swimming
Breast Lift with Implants Recovery
After the procedure, patients can expect to experience moderate bruising and swelling of the breasts. It’s essential to avoid performing strenuous activities like bending, heavy lifting, and fast movement. Taking time to rest and recover will help facilitate excellent results. As you heal, the breasts will appear larger, more projected, and much more youthful.
