Breast Lift With Implants

Breast Lift With Implants in Dallas, TX | Dr. Stephanie Teotia

Your breasts’ shape, contour, and elevation will go through many changes throughout your lifetime due to factors like aging, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and genetics. If your breasts have started to droop or flatten, you may be exploring the advantages of a breast lift to restore your youthful silhouette. However, while a breast lift is ideal for repositioning your breasts and reducing sagging skin, it cannot solve problems like volume loss or asymmetry. For that reason, many women today are opting to add breast implants to their lifting surgery.

Proven Benefits of a Breast Lift With Implants

Though pregnancy and breastfeeding are miraculous experiences, many women experience significant, unwelcome changes to their bodies as a result. For instance, if the skin that stretches to produce milk for a nursing baby does not bounce back to its pre-pregnancy position, it will leave you with downward-pointing breasts.

During breast lift surgery, Dr. Stephanie Teotia will remove excess skin during a breast lift and move your breasts and nipple-areola complex to a perkier position. However, this surgery will not add volume to the breasts. Many women find getting breast implants alongside their breast lift provides ideal results because the combined procedure enhances their breast shape, volume, projection, and symmetry.

Getting implants at the same time as your breast lift surgery should not significantly add to your recovery time, and the results can provide a dramatic improvement in your breasts’ profile and youthful appearance.

You will realize two significant advantages by combining a breast lift with implants. First, pairing procedures saves money on things like surgical and anesthesia fees. It will also let you avoid the discomfort of having separate recovery periods.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift With Implants?

The same characteristics that make you an excellent candidate for a breast lift also qualify you to get a breast augmentation. These include:

  • Being 18 or older
  • Overall good physical and mental health
  • Being a nonsmoker
  • Having no masses in your breasts after an exam
  • Support from your loved ones while you heal
  • Realistic expectations for your surgical results

If your nipples sit above the folds under your breasts, implants alone might be enough to provide your desired enhancements. If your nipples have fallen below these creases, you likely need a breast lift.

Another way to determine if you are a good candidate for a breast lift surgery is the “pencil test.” If you place a small object like a pencil under your breast and it stays there, you have a sufficient degree of sagging to merit a breast lift.

What to Expect During and After Your Breast Lift With Augmentation

A breast lift with augmentation is an outpatient procedure that takes place while you are under anesthesia. While Dr. Teotia will clear you to go home after you wake up, you will need to coordinate with a friend, neighbor, or family member to drive you home and ensure you are resting safely and comfortably.

For the first few days after your breast lift with augmentation, you can expect some bruising, swelling, tenderness, and mild discomfort. Dr. Teotia will keep in touch with you during your recovery process and can prescribe you pain medication if necessary. To promote swifter healing, you will need to wear a supportive, comfortable garment like a sports bra for six weeks

The length of your recovery time will depend on several factors, including how large your breast implants are. Women who choose more substantial implants can expect more tissue stretching. Those with more strenuous jobs may need to take a longer break from work or ask for reduced duties. While we recommend light movement like walking during your recovery period to stimulate circulation, please refrain from high-impact exercise like jogging until Dr. Teotia clears you to do so.

FAQs About Breast Lift With Augmentation

Yes! Many of Dr. Teotia’s patients choose to add surgeries like a tummy tuck to save themselves money and time. Though you may hear this approach called a “mommy makeover,” you could be a good candidate for these combined procedures even if you have never had children. For best results, you should be at a stable body weight with no plans to become pregnant and commit to maintaining your new figure with a nutrition and fitness regimen.

A breast lift with augmentation is a highly customizable procedure. Costs will vary depending on factors such as your choice of implant material, the size of your implants, and any prescriptions you need to have filled after your surgery. After meeting with you, asking you questions, and learning about what you hope to achieve, Dr. Teotia and her team will give you an accurate cost estimate.

Modern breast implants are long-lasting medical devices that women can enjoy for a decade or more before getting a replacement. Complications such as leaks, ruptures, and capsular contracture are rare when you partner with a board-certified surgeon like Dr. Teotia to perform your procedure. However, if you have silicone breast implants, the FDA recommends having periodic MRI screenings to detect possible leaks.
