Please read more about the procedure below and visit our before and after breast lift with implants gallery to view the results achieved by Atlanta breast lift with enhancement patients.
What is a breast lift (mastopexy) with enhancement?
A mastopexy raises and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning the breast tissue to a higher position. Our goal is to give your breasts a firmer, rounder, and more youthful contour, rejuvenating your figure. The length and location of the scars depend on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed to achieve the desired results.
The difference between this procedure and a mastopexy is the addition of breast implants, put in place during the same surgery. The implant is placed behind the breast tissue or under the muscle between the breast and the chest wall to enlarge and reshape the breasts.
What are my implant choices?
Currently in the United States, breast augmentation patients can choose between silicone and saline breast implants. Silicone breast implants are gel-filled prostheses. They are known for producing softer, more natural-looking results. Saline implants, on the other hand, are filled with a salt water solution, which causes no harm to the body in case of an implant rupture. While saline breast implants are the right choice for many patients, however, many do not produce aesthetic results comparable to those of silicone breast implants. One of our plastic surgeons will recommend the best implant for you during your consultation appointment. Our surgeons’ recommendations are generally based on your personal preference, desired look, and tissue availability.
Who is a good candidate for this procedure?
A good candidate for a breast lift with enhancement is any woman who has breasts that are pendulous or sag, lack substance or firmness, or if the nipples are too low and pointing downward. If your breasts have also lost their breast shape and firmness due to age or pregnancy, the breast implants can restore (or even augment) your breasts to a more youthful-looking profile.
What is the recovery like from this procedure?
Most of our patients return to work and their regular routine one week after surgery. Generally, we recommend waiting 3 to 4 weeks before resuming vigorous activities.
In addition to treating Atlanta breast lift patients, the surgeons of Artisan Plastic Surgery have also helped many Atlanta breast lift, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, and breast asymmetry patients.
