A Breast Lift with Implants Can Give You a Fuller, More Youthful-Looking Figure
Several factors can cause the breasts to sag, droop, and even appear disproportionate. These include pregnancy, nursing, loss of skin elasticity, and the simple effects of gravity over time. Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Mesna often recommends combining a breast lift with implants for more comprehensive results than either a breast lift or breast implants can achieve alone. At his state-of- the-art practice in Minneapolis, MN, Dr. Mesna uses advanced technology to precisely plan treatment and provide beautiful, natural-looking results. Many of his patients have achieved exceptional results with this procedure, which can take years off your figure.
What You Can Achieve by Choosing a Breast Lift with Implants
A breast lift can be an excellent way to achieve a more uplifted profile. However, a breast lift on its own will not round out the upper chest, and it is not likely to give you cleavage. Similarly, a breast augmentation by itself will not do the job of a lift. A breast lift with implants provides a solution by adding curves and restoring breast height. Your results will produce a noticeable improvement in the shape, projection, firmness, and symmetry of your breasts.
Separately, a breast lift with breast augmentation has some other advantages. When you have the two procedures done at the same time, it is typically less expensive and it avoids the risks of two surgeries while correcting two problems at once. Also, Dr. Mesna will likely need to remove less skin when the procedures are done at the same time, resulting in minimized scarring. In addition, the recovery time for a breast lift with implants is not any longer than if either procedure were done alone.
How to Determine if a Breast Lift with Implants Is Right for You
Often, sagging of the breasts and loss of volume occur at the same time, particularly following pregnancy, nursing, and significant weight loss. You may benefit greatly from a breast lift with implants if you want to gain volume in the upper portion of your chest and you also have:
- Breasts that appear to be deflated or flattened
- Nipples that are pointing down
- Nipples that fall below the breast crease
- One breast that sits lower than the other, or breasts that do not match in size
- Areolas that have stretched out of proportion to your breasts
If you are a candidate for a breast lift with implants, Dr. Mesna will examine your figure and discuss your goals to determine if adding breast implants to your breast lift procedure will help you achieve the youthful, perky breasts you had in mind.
Options to Consider with Breast Implants
We offer breast implants in a variety of shapes, sizes, and other specifications, which helps Dr. Mesna provide uniquely designed treatment for every patient. Based on the desired shape of the breasts, women are recommended either round or teardrop shaped implants. Dr. Mesna will then offer either saline or silicone breast implants, which differ in a variety of ways, with an important distinction being that saline implants only come in the round variety.
Dr. Mesna will discuss your goals with you to determine if adding breast implants to your breast lift procedure will help you achieve the full, youthful breasts you had in mind.
Breast implants also come in a variety of sizes, which is an important factor when considering treatment paired with a breast lift, as large breast implants will not always achieve the best results. Two different size implants for each breast are sometimes selected, given that breasts can sometimes sag disproportionately. The desired size is closely related to the profile of the implant as well, a specification of how far breasts will project from the breast wall. Dr. Mesna provides realistic expectations of what women can achieve by sharing the many dramatic results he has achieved for his patients, and comparing those with similar body types and goals.
