Best Candidates for Breast Augmentation with Lift
The best candidates for a combination breast augmentation with lift are women who have multiple concerns about the condition of their breasts. An augmentation and lift combo can help women who feel self-conscious about or are unhappy with their breast size, shape, and position on the body. If you find yourself with these concerns, you may be an ideal candidate for a combination breast surgery.
Ideal candidates for breast augmentation with breast lift are women who are in overall good health and within or close to a stable, healthy weight. It’s often recommended that you complete your family and finish having children before you consider breast surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Cuber will evaluate your general health and history to determine if you’re a good candidate for surgery.
What to Expect
During your initial consultation, Dr. Cuber will examine your breasts to determine if an augmentation with lift is the best course of action to help you achieve your desired results. This will include assessing your breast size and shape, the quality of your skin, and the placement of your nipples and areolas. During this appointment, you and Dr. Cuber can discuss the results you would like to see and what you can expect from your combination breast surgery. Bringing with you photo examples of your ideal breast results may be helpful in describing exactly what you’re looking for.
There are several options for breast implants and implant placement that Dr. Cuber will discuss with you. Silicone or saline implants are available, and they can be inserted either under the pectoral muscle, called a submuscular implant, or directly behind the breast tissue and over the muscle, known as a submammary implant. Many women may also be required to have a mammogram before surgery.
The augmentation will address the size and shape of your breasts, whereas the breast lift can improve their position on your body. This can address drooping or sagging caused by pregnancy, weight loss, or age. Through the incision, the breast tissue will be lifted and repositioned to achieve a more youthful look. The placement of your incision will depend on your individual anatomy, your goals, and the type of implants you’ve decided on.
Your Breast Augmentation with Lift Recovery & Results
The incisions from your breast augmentation with lift will be sealed with glue as opposed to traditional sutures. Instead of dressings covering your incision sites, you will wear a soft-cup, front-close bra immediately after surgery. This bra offers support and is designed to help keep post-op swelling down.
Although your recovery process will be unique to you, many women don’t need drains after surgery and many opt out of an overnight stay, going home the same day as surgery. Your breasts may be swollen, tender or bruised immediately after your surgery. This can last for several days or weeks and can obstruct the appearance of your results until the healing process is complete.
When you get home, it’s vital that you follow all of Dr. Cuber’s instructions for recovery, including keeping all post-op appointments and taking any prescribed medications. This can help the healing process and ensure that your results are the best they can be. You will have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Cuber 2 to 3 weeks after your breast augmentation with lift surgery. Many women feel comfortable returning to work after this time. Final results of your breast augmentation with lift can be seen several months after your surgery.
