Yes, you can combine a breast lift with implants. Whether your breasts have lost their youthful appearance due to pregnancy, age, or dramatic weight loss, a breast lift with an augmentation can help you achieve the size and shape you desire. By combining a breast lift and a breast augmentation in one procedure, you can increase the volume of your breasts while also improving their shape, position, and proportions. At Burgess Plastic Surgery, Dr. Elisa Burgess can walk you through your options and create a custom procedure that meets your goals.
There are a variety of reasons that many women choose to have a breast lift with an augmentation. The most common reasons are:
- To make the breasts shapely and symmetrical
- To have a larger breast size
- To decrease the size of the areolas
Over time, your breasts can begin to sag and lose volume. Also known as ptosis, this sagging can cause the nipples to fall below the breast crease and point downward. While this can be corrected with a breast lift, some women end up losing significant volume in their breasts. In this case, Dr. Burgess can perform a breast augmentation at the same time as a breast lift. This not only increases cup size, but also helps the breasts sit higher on the chest wall.
Depending on your specific needs, there are several breast implant types to choose from. At Burgess Plastic Surgery, we offer FDA approved saline, silicone, and gummy bear implants from several companies including Allergan, Mentor, Sientra, and Ideal Implant®. At your consultation, Dr. Burgess will provide complimentary implant sizing to help with your decision. She will also help you understand the effect of implant placement, profile, diameter, and shape.
