Breast Lift With Implants

Breast Lift With Implants Surgery

A breast lift with implants (also known as a Mastopexy Augmentation) is where excess tissue and skin are cut away, the nipple is repositioned, and an implant is placed for a fuller and lifted appearance. This cosmetic surgical procedure is popular among women who have experienced significant changes in their breast shape and size due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, ageing, or genetic factors.

Is Breast Lift With Implants Surgery for Me?

It is important to consult with Dr Deon to discuss your goals and expectations and determine if a breast lift with implant surgery suits you. We will evaluate your health history, physical condition, and breast anatomy to create a personalised treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and concerns.

This surgery might be suitable for those bothered by the following:

  • Sagging breasts: If your breasts are sagging due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or ageing, and you want to restore their shape and position, breast lift with implants surgery may be a good option for you.
  • Loss of breast volume: If you have lost breast volume due to weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding, and you want to restore fullness and improve the shape of your breasts, breast lift with implants surgery can be an effective solution.
  • Asymmetry: If you have asymmetrical breasts, with one breast larger or sagging more than the other, breast lift with implants surgery can help to improve symmetry and balance.
  • Self-confidence: If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts and it is affecting your self-confidence, breast lift with implants surgery can help to improve your body image and self-esteem.

Benefits of Breast Lift With Implants Surgery

Mastopexy augmentation has several benefits, including:

  • Improved Breast Appearance: Mastopexy augmentation can enhance the appearance of sagging breasts by lifting them to a more youthful position and adding volume and fullness with implants. This can help women regain their confidence and self-esteem.
  • Customizable: Breast lift with implants is a highly customizable procedure, meaning that the surgeon can tailor the procedure to each patient’s needs and goals. This allows for a more personalized approach to breast enhancement.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The results of mastopexy augmentation are long-lasting, although the breasts will continue to age naturally. Women who maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight can expect to enjoy the procedure’s results for many years.

How is Breast Lift With Implants Surgery Performed?

This surgical procedure involves two main steps: breast lift and breast augmentation. The surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia and takes approximately 2-4 hours, depending on the extent of the procedure.

Breast lift with implants surgery involves several steps that include administering anaesthesia to ensure comfort and minimize pain during the surgery, making an incision in the breast area, which can vary in location and length depending on the individual patient and the desired outcome, lifting the breast tissue and reshaping the breast to the desired position while repositioning the nipple and areola to a higher position on the breast, creating a pocket in the breast tissue to place the breast implant either above or below the chest muscle, depending on the individual patient and desired outcome, and closing the incisions with sutures or surgical tape while covering the incisions with gauze and placing a post-op surgical bra over the breasts to support and protect them during the healing process.

Healing And Recovery?

The recovery process following mastopexy augmentation can vary depending on the individual patient and the extent of the procedure. However, patients can generally expect the following:

  • Swelling and Bruising: Patients will experience swelling and bruising in the breast area following the procedure. This should subside within a few days to a few weeks.
  • Pain and Discomfort: Patients may experience pain and discomfort in the breast area. Pain medication will be prescribed to manage this.
  • Limited Activity: Patients will be advised to limit physical activity, including lifting, for about 6 weeks following the procedure. This is to allow for proper healing.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Patients will have follow-up appointments with their Dr Deon to monitor their recovery and ensure that the breasts heal properly.
  • The patient will be booked off work for about 1 – 2 weeks and will not be allowed to drive for a minimum of 2 weeks. Normal routine and exercise can gradually continue after 6 weeks.
