What are the benefits of a breast lift with implants?

When performed by an artistic surgeon like Dr. Courtney, a breast lift with implants can achieve a stunning outcome, with the following benefits:

  • Raises the breasts to a youthful position
  • Resolves excess skin 
  • Enhances shape, volume, and position
  • Creates larger, rounder, more youthful breasts
  • Produces the beauty of visible cleavage
  • Looks lovely in more clothing styles
  • Improves symmetry
  • Boost your self-image and confidence

Am I a candidate?

If you are considering having a breast lift with implants, we can determine if you are a good candidate for this life-changing operation. Likely candidates for breast augmentation with a lift include women who:

  • Want more prominent and perkier breasts
  • Are in good health
  • Are maintaining a healthy weight
  • Are non-smokers
  • Feel less confident due to looser, saggy breasts
  • Have downward-pointing nipples
  • Have breasts that are uneven in size

If you are planning on having more children, you may want to postpone the procedure as the results can be altered by pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you feel that you meet these criteria, it’s time to start considering what your implant options are!

Breast implant options: Lift with augmentation

During your consultation, Dr. Courtney helps you determine the size, shape, and projection for your implants to achieve the look you envision. He will discuss any questions or concerns and inform you of the benefits of each type of implant. He never puts pressure on his patients – he is there to help you achieve the figure that makes your life’s journey more positive and rewarding.

Types of implants for a breast lift with augmentation in Houston

Saline vs. silicone

Although saline implants were the first to enter the market, silicone implants are the most popular option, as they have the weight and bounce of natural breasts. Saline implants require shorter incisions and are the sole choice for women ages 18 to 21. Feel free to read about the differences between implants in more detail on our breast augmentation page!

Round vs. teardrop-shaped implants

Your decision regarding the type and size of your implant will reflect your unique body and what’s most important to you. Dr. Courtney will discuss each option with you in detail to create the best surgical plan that aims to capture your vision. Round implants provide more volume at the top of the breasts, and teardrop-shaped, or anatomical implants, were developed to more closely mimic natural breast shape.

What is the surgical procedure?

Dr. Courtney does not believe in the “cookie-cutter” approach to cosmetic surgery and may employ a range of advanced techniques when performing a breast lift with augmentation. Generally, a breast lift creates a youthful position on the chest, repositions the nipples, so they are centered on the breast mound, and brings more volume for a perky, fresh look.

Implant placement

The implant placement will reflect your unique body type, as they can be placed in a subglandular (above the breast muscle) or submuscular (beneath the chest muscle). Generally, submuscular placement may be ideal for women with less natural breast tissue to create a very natural look. A dual-plane technique positions the implant partially under the muscle and partially above the muscle. This advanced technique creates a very natural look that lasts, with less risk, and does not inhibit mammogram testing.

What should I expect in the surgery?

Restoring firm, round breasts with a lift with augmentation will generally take around three hours to complete, with some variation. We perform most of our surgeries at our surgical center at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery in Houston. Our AAAHC-certified surgery center offers discretion, privacy, personalized care, and advanced technology that is above and beyond what you may find in a hospital – you deserve it!

After the procedure, you will have one-on-one nursing care to monitor your recovery before you go home. Ensure you arrange a friend or family member to drive you home after your procedure and to stay with you for a day or two.

What is the recovery after a breast lift with implants?

After your procedure, you can expect to feel sore, stiff, and fatigued for a few days, as your body needs time to rest and heal. Dr. Courtney will prescribe pain medication to alleviate any discomfort. In about a week to ten days, you will return to our Houston clinic for a follow-up. Dr. Courtney will remove the bandages, any stitches, and ensure you are feeling well and strong.

It is normal to experience some swelling and bruising, which fades away in the following few weeks. To help support and position your newly-restored breasts, you will be wearing a support bra or compression bandage. Your incisions appear like a pinkish line initially but fade as time passes. The recovery time varies, as everyone heals at a different rate, but is generally within a few weeks.

You can begin light activity, such as gentle walks, within a few days, and you should. You will need to miss your usual workouts or exercise for at least three weeks. Ensure you avoid lifting, including small children and pets, during the early stages of your recovery.  Unless your job requires vigorous physical motions, you should be able to return to work within approximately a week.

What is my next step?

To begin the journey towards younger-looking, round, perky breasts, contact Dr. Courtney today! He will advise you on how he can enhance your breast appearance, improve your self-esteem, and feel amazing in your new body.

FAQ:

Breast lift with implants

Are there other procedures that I can combine with a breast lift with implants?

Yes. Liposuction and a tummy tuck can produce a more thorough body reshaping. A mommy makeover is a combination of multiple operations to restore a pre-baby body after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Courtney will help you decide if pairing these procedures will be right for you.

Will I have scars?

As with any surgery, you will have scars. However, the incisions for breast surgery heal very well, and over time will become almost indetectable. Dr. Courtney will discuss incision techniques and scarring during your consultation.

Can I breastfeed after a breast lift with implants?

The vast majority of women can breastfeed after the procedure, although this can vary based on the size of the implants. The type of breast lift performed may impact the ability to breastfeed. If you plan on having more children and want to breastfeed, ensure you inform Dr. Courtney, so he employs the optimal procedure for you.

When can I return to my regular routine after breast lift with implants?

Although healing and recovery differ from patient to patient, most of our patients can return to their normal activities after two months, including sports and vigorous exercise. The difference is that they feel confident, empowered, and beautiful, no matter what they are doing!
