Achieve Symmetry and Youthfulness

For many people, curving, full breasts are a signal of feminine, attractive beauty. Women who wish their breasts could be larger, more symmetrical, or youthful-looking desire to enhance their breasts and achieve this feminine ideal. Breast augmentation with lift can achieve the beautifully-enhanced, lifted breasts you’ve always wanted.

What is breast augmentation with lift?

This surgical procedure is designed to augment the breast size and lift them higher on the chest. Saline or silicone implants are used to enhance breast size and shape, while the breast lift technique is used to lift the breasts upward. The breasts appear rounder and fuller, lifted youthfully upward with an attractive tilt. 

Women whose breasts are sagging due to volume loss from age, breastfeeding, or weight loss benefit from a breast augmentation combined with a breast lift, which beautifully restores volume while also achieving a higher, more perky appearance. 

Women who have always had asymmetrical, smaller, or lower-hanging breasts benefit from this procedure because it finally achieves their ideal vision for their breasts.

How is breast augmentation with lift surgery performed?

Before your breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Pratt will have a detailed consultation with you to decide on the details of your surgical plan, customizing this to your exact needs.

Your breast augmentation with lift will begin with surgical incisions made in the following possible areas, depending on the type of implants you choose and the extent of the lift needed:

  • around the areolae 
  • around the areolae and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease
  • around the areolae, vertically down from the breast crease, and along the breast crease itself. 

Once the incisions are made, the implants are inserted in a pocket, either under or over the muscle. Placement is decided based on which implant placement is best for your natural proportions.

After the implants are properly placed, Dr. Pratt will lift your breasts. He will tighten the muscle, remove excess skin, and reshape the breast tissue to achieve better breast contour. As a part of this, he will reposition (and possibly trim or reshape) the nipple and areola to create a youthfully upward tilt.

Types of implants

There is a variety of implant options to choose from to achieve your aesthetic goals for your breasts. During your consultation, you will be able to test different-sized implants and get an idea of how your implants will look and feel.

Silicone implants

Silicone implants are silicone shells that contain viscous, soft silicone gel. The gel feels natural and retains an attractive, natural shape and bounce. These implants are the most popular choice for women who prefer a more natural feel and appearance.

Silicone implants include a variety of implant types, including the popular “gummy bear” implants, that can achieve a much larger breast size.

Saline implants

Saline implants are silicone shells that contain sterile salt water. Saline implants are inserted into a smaller incision before they are filled. Once they are placed, they are carefully filled, and the volume adjusted until the result is symmetrically round and large enough for your preferences. Saline-filled implants have less of a natural feel and breast motion than silicone implants.

What to expect after breast augmentation with lift surgery

After your procedure, you will be able to go home the same day with a friend or family member, who will ideally be able to help care for you. You will have a compression bandage around your chest to support your breasts, limit post-surgical swelling and protect your new breast shape.

Within the first week after your procedure, do not lift anything over five pounds. Do not lift your arms above your shoulders or exert yourself. You will begin to be able to get around more easily by the second week and be able to return to many of your usual daily activities. After about a month, Dr. Pratt will check in with you to give you clearance to exercise or do other more rigorous activities.

As your body continues to heal over the coming weeks and months, the swelling will subside and the implants will settle into their final position.
