Breast Lift with Augmentation

March 28, 2022


What Is a Breast Lift With Augmentation?

It is a type of surgery that combines lifting the breast while increasing its volume with an implant to create an ideal-shaped breast. This procedure is meant for breasts that have stretched and droopy skin while having lost volume with time. 

Breast lift with augmentation in Miami is an ideal choice for an individual who has lost weight or has breastfed multiple children and thus has a loss of volume in the breast with skin that has stretched over time. Some of the other reasons why women consider this procedure include:

  • To achieve breast symmetry and fullness.
  • To correct asymmetrical nipples or areola (i.e., repositioning the nipples that are below the breast crease).
  • To restore the normal shape, volume, and firmness of the breasts that have been lost due to pregnancy, aging, and weight loss.

More importantly, breast lift with augmentation can help bring back the lost confidence and self-esteem of women with chest problems.

How Is a Breast Lift With Augmentation Performed?

Before going through the operation, our leading plastic surgeon in Coral Gables will first perform a thorough health assessment to ensure that you’re in the best shape. Our surgeon will also give you the rundown of what will happen during your procedure and discuss some important details, such as the type of implants and incision technique to use.

Generally, here’s what you can expect to happen during your breast lift with augmentation in Miami:

  • Your surgeon will mark the desired lifted position of the nipples on the breast while you are standing.
  • You will then be given general anesthesia to prevent you from feeling any pain and discomfort during the surgery.
  • Next, your surgeon will create a pocket-like incision on the breasts where the implants will be placed. 
  • Then, your surgeon will perform the breast lift, which involves lifting and reshaping the breast tissue. This may also involve repositioning or adjusting the areolas to achieve the desired look.
  • Finally, your surgeon will close the incisions through stitches or surgical tape.

Frequently Asked Questions About a Breast Lift With Augmentation in Miami

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift with Augmentation Procedure?

In general, a good candidate for this procedure is a physically healthy individual with no current medical concerns with their breasts. The patient should also have no active infections or severe and chronic illnesses. The patient should also disclose any past or ongoing medical issues to their plastic surgeon.

How Long Does the Operation Last?

The procedure takes about 4 to 5 hours一from administering anesthesia to when you’re ready to go home.

How Long Will It Take for Me to Recover?

Recovery is on a case-to-case basis. An ideal recovery process goes like this:

  • The first 24 to 48 hours should be spent resting, which means no stressful activities, such as work, driving, and exercising. 
  • Sleep on your side or back (inclined position) during the first few weeks.
  • Return to work and other daily tasks after a week. 
  • No heavy lifting or strenuous exercises for six weeks.

Will the Procedure Affect My Physical Functioning?

After your full recovery, you should experience no trouble going back to your regular tasks and physical activities. 

Is It Okay to Undergo Breast Enhancements if I’m Planning to Get Pregnant in the Future?

After getting a breast lift with augmentation, you can still get pregnant and breastfeed without a problem. However, you should postpone pregnancy until six months after the surgery or once you achieve complete recovery.

You should also expect your enhanced breasts to change in size and shape as they normally would during pregnancy. 

What Should I Expect After the Procedure?

After the surgery, it’s normal to feel sore, tender, painful, or itchy in the chest area. You can also see scarring in the incision line and slight swelling or discoloration. Fortunately, all of these will subside after 5 to 14 days.

Right after the surgery, you can immediately see the improved results of your chestal area. But it would take at least a month before the breasts fully settle and the scarring fades away.
