Breast lifts and augmentations are some of the most popular procedures available for creating a more voluptuous figure. Combining the two into a single treatment can optimize your results even further. A breast lift with implants can enhance the size of your breasts while simultaneously creating a perkier, more youthful appearance.
At Park Cities Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, Dr. David Liland performs each surgery in his state-of-the-art surgical suite, which greatly reduces the risk of complications compared to hospitals. This specialized procedure is an excellent option for women who have lost volume in their breasts due to pregnancy, nursing, weight fluctuations, or other issues.
Benefits of a Breast Lift with Implants
Some of the most immediately obvious benefits of combining a breast lift and augmentation include:
- Faster recovery: Because patients only need to undergo a single surgery, those who combine these two treatments experience exponentially faster recovery times compared to those who undergo two separate procedures.
- Enhanced symmetry: Any time breast implants are inserted, it creates a more uniform, balanced appearance.
- Perkier outcome: The breast lift makes the bosom perkier and implants give the breasts shape.
However, this procedure is not suitable for everyone.
Am I a Candidate?
Are you looking to increase the size, volume, or symmetry of your breasts? If so, then you are a potential candidate for this treatment. Women considering a breast lift with implants should:
- Be in good general health,
- Not be pregnant or nursing
- Not smoke
- Be at a stable weight
There are also certain age restrictions for breast implants. Patients must be at least 18 years old to receive saline implants and at least 22 years old to receive silicone.
Most importantly, women considering this procedure must have realistic expectations of treatment and should only pursue surgery if it is something they truly want, rather than as an attempt to please a partner.
Those who combine these two procedures experience exponentially faster recovery times compared to those who undergo two separate surgical procedures.
About the Procedure: What to Expect
Before beginning the procedure, our team will administer anesthesia and sedation to keep you comfortable. Next, Dr. Liland will make an incision in the breast. The type of incision will depend on your specific cosmetic goals, but the primary goal is to minimize scarring. Once it is made, the doctor can remove excess skin, fat, and underlying tissue and reshape the remaining tissue.
Next, Dr. Liland will insert either a silicone or saline breast implant, based on your unique preferences and the discussion during your consultation. He can then reposition the nipple for a lifelike appearance and a natural look. Finally, the doctor will close up the incisions with stitches.
Following the procedure, most patients require approximately one to two weeks of recovery time. During this healing period, strenuous activity should be avoided. However, it is still important to walk around often to avoid blood clots and other complications.
