Breast Augmentation with Lift
Breast augmentation with lift plastic cosmetic surgery procedure involves placing breast implants and then having a breast lift surgery to lift breast for your desired look. We offer premier service as the leader in the Inland Northwest for Cosmetic Surgery. Breast implants alone will not correct sagging breasts, and a lift alone will not add volume. A breast augmentation with lift surgery sculpts your breasts into the shape and size that you want, creating firmness, correcting the position and shape of your breasts, and adding volume without the need for multiple procedures.
Many women seek breast augmentation to restore breasts that have begun to sag due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss. In most cases, implants alone will not significantly lift the breasts and the added weight of the implants can make sagging worse over time if your skin has lost elasticity.
By combining augmentation and lift, usually at a single procedure, Dr. Lundeby will remove the excess skin and create the proper framework for your breasts, supporting both the existing tissue and the implants. This results in breasts that have a more natural and youthful appearance.
Different Types of Breast Lifts
Circumvertical Breast Lift – A circumvertical breast lift has an incision around the nipple (areola) and a vertical incision extending from the bottom of the areola down to just above the inframammary fold. (Also known as the lollipop incision.)
Wise Pattern (Anchor) Breast Lift – A wise pattern (anchor) breast lift has an incision around the nipple (areolar) and a vertical incision from the areola down to the inframammary crease, and an incision in the crease underneath the breast.
During a breast lift surgery, excess skin is removed and the breast tissue and nipples are elevated to a higher position on the chest wall. The insertion of a breast implant may or may not be advisable during the procedure, and can be employed with each of the lifts mentioned above.
Your cosmetic surgeon will evaluate your medical history and your end result goals, examine you, and in consultation with you help you decide which lift would best meet your goals.
