Breast Augmentation With Lift

Who is a candidate for breast augmentation with lift?

Healthy women who have excess skin, or breast sagging with small breasts, are good candidates for the breast augmentation with lift procedure. Commonly known as breast implants, and known even more colloquially as the “boob job,” this procedure offers more to women that just enlarging her breasts. Breast implants increase the volume of the breasts, it’s true. But then, the lift helps to remove the excess skin and reshape the breasts. This skin removal and reshaping of the breasts is integral to the breast augmentation process.

Which is better, silicone breast augmentation or saline breast augmentation?

Silicone has the advantage over saline for a more natural feel and less visible rippling. The cost for silicone breast augmentation is higher, however. Dr. Yang, plastic surgeon, is available to help you decide which option may be right for you. For more information, see Dr. Yang’s silicone breast augmentation page and saline breast augmentation page.

How is the surgery performed? What are the risks?

The breast enlargement with lift procedure is performed in a fully licensed outpatient surgery center. General anesthesia is used.

A breast implant is placed behind the pectoralis muscle. The incision is placed in the breast fold. Once the breast implants are placed, the breast lift is performed. Dissolving sutures are used. Typically, there is no need for a drainage tube.

The procedure typically takes 2–3 hours and is performed in a fully licensed outpatient cosmetic surgery center. Most patients require a week off of work to recover. Sometimes women take a longer period off work if the work is strenuous. Scars are usually well hidden from view by regular clothing.

Your cosmetic plastic surgery experience will be in good hands with Dr. Yang, cosmetic surgeon. Receive breast enlargements and shapely, lifted breasts that you will be proud to show off.
