Breast Lift with Implants Benefits

When performed by an artistic surgeon like Dr. Courtney, a breast lift with implants can:

  • Elevate your breasts
  • Resolve sagging skin
  • Enhance shape, volume, and position.
  • Provide bigger, rounder, and firmer breasts
  • Give you more pronounced cleavage
  • Allow for more clothing options
  • improve symmetry
  • Boost self-image and confidence

Breast Lift with Implants Candidates

If you are considering having a breast lift with implants, you’ll first want to decide if you are a good candidate for this life-changing operation.

Likely candidates for breast augmentation with a lift are women who:

  • Want more prominent and perkier breasts
  • Are in good health
  • Are maintaining their optimal weight
  • Don’t smoke
  • Have flat elongated breasts due to weight loss or pregnancy
  • Have downward pointing nipples
  • Have breasts that are asymmetric (different sizes or positions)

Women who want more children should consider postponing the procedure as breast surgery results can be affected 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

During your consultation, Dr. Courtney will carefully help you choose the best implants to achieve your desired outcome. This is a crucial step in getting the results you want, and Dr. Courtney will answer any questions you may have, inform you on the benefits of each type, and never pressure you.

Some of your implant options are:

Although saline implants were the first to enter the market, silicone implants are now the trending choice. Each has its advantages, which we will review in detail during your consultation. For instance, Silicone implants have a more natural feel and are less likely to ripple, whereas saline implants require shorter incisions and are available to women ages 18 to 21. Feel free to read about the differences between implants in more detail on our breast augmentation page!

The round implants are circular and symmetric around the whole implant. The teardrop or anatomic implants tapers upward, much like the natural breast. Again, each has its advantages. A round implant appearance is unaffected by any post-surgical shifting. It also adds cleavage. A teardrop implant tends to maintain upper pole fullness and are more easily fitted.

The decision on the type and size of your implant is dependent on 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.

Surgical Techniques

Dr. Courtney does not believe in the “cookie-cutter” approach to cosmetic surgery and offers multiple techniques to a breast lift. Each method will require some skin excision to help re-contour your breasts. Results include a higher nipple and areola location for that youthful breast appearance.

Implant Placement

Dr. Courtney will review where to place the implants in relation to your breast tissue. Subglandular is above the breast muscle, whereas submuscular is beneath. Each technique has distinct benefits, which he will explain to you in your consultation

A dual-plane technique positions the implant partially under the muscle and partially above it to cover the top half. This placement gives a long-term natural look as the breasts age. Also, there is less post-surgery risk and less mammography interference.

The Breast Lift with Implants Procedure

Your operation will generally take around three hours to complete, though this will differ based on its extent. We perform most of our surgeries at our surgical center at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery in Houston. This AAAHC-certified surgery center offers more amenities than your local hospital with more convenience, comfort, and safety!

After the procedure, you will have one-on-one nursing care to monitor your recovery before you go home. We ask you to come to the surgical center with a responsible adult to help you get home.

Breast Lift with Implants Recovery

It’s typical to feel sore, stiff, and tired for several days after surgery. Dr. Courtney will prescribe pain medication to alleviate any discomfort that you may have. Somewhere between a week and ten days, Dr. Courtney will see you to change your bandages, remove sutures, and monitor your progress. You will experience some swelling and bruising, which should subside within a few weeks.

To help support and position your breasts, we advise you to wear a support bra or compression bandage, that Dr. Courtney provides. Your incisions will be pinkish in the beginning but then fade as time passes. The duration of your recovery will depend on the techniques used and how your body naturally heals.

You can begin light activity within a few days. Still, you should avoid workouts or exercise for at least three weeks. Lifting substantial weight should be discouraged for several weeks, including any small children. Unless your job requires physical strain, you should be able to return to work after a week or so.

Breast Lift with Implants FAQs

Yes. Liposuction and tummy tuck are body sculpting procedures that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. A mommy makeover is a combination of multiple operations that help women reverse the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Courtney will help you decide if pairing these procedures will be right for you.

As with all surgery, there will be scarring, but the incisions for breast surgery mature very well. Dr. Courtney will discuss incision techniques and scarring during your consultation.

The vast majority of women can breastfeed after the procedure just fine, although the larger the implant, the more difficult it may be. The type of breast lift also can affect breastfeeding.

Although healing and recovery differ from patient to patient, most of our patients can return to their normal activities after two months.
