Breast Lift with Breast Implants
Many women consider a breast lift to be a more natural breast augmentation choice, however a breast lift can also be achieved through the use of implants. In addition to lifting the breast, the implants add volume and fullness as well. During a private consultation, the type, shape and position of the breast implant will be addressed based on the current condition of the natural breast and the amount of lift desired.
Breast Lift Scars and Incisions
A Breast lift typically requires three incisions to raise and reshape the natural breast for a fuller, more youthful profile. However, usually only one incision, the vertical incision, is visible after breast has fully healed. Breast lift scars typically fade to a pencil-thin line; most women are so pleased with the result of the breast lift that the remaining, light colored scar is of little concern.
Recovery from Breast Lift
Women experience varying degrees of discomfort after a breast lift, however any discomfort can be effectively managed with the proper pain medication. A surgical bra or compression garment will be worn for one month to help reduce post-operative swelling.
Most women find they are able to return to work a week or so following surgery. However, heavy lifting may be restricted for up to eight weeks.
