Combining a Breast Lift with Breast Implants
Breast enhancements are the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the country. Millions of women have chosen these treatments to help them enhance their appearance and their self-esteem. For many of these women, the combination of a breast lift and breast implants is the secret to success. Below, we’ll take a look at how combining these treatments can be so effective.
Starting with Breast Implants
When it comes to increasing the size of the breasts, breast implants are the best option for the majority of patients. With breast implants, you are able to choose the exact size and shape of the breasts you would like to achieve. Patients typically have to choose between two main types of implants:
- Saline Implants, or a breast implant with a silicone shell that is filled with a sterile saltwater solution. This implant provides the most flexibility with treatment, reducing scarring and downtime.
- Silicone Implants, which are composed entirely of silicone gel, offering a more natural look and feel than similarly-sized saline implants.
At Port City Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer MENTOR® implants, which offer a high level of customizability so that patients can get the specific results they’re after.
Next, patients need to consider the location of their breast implants – below or above the chest muscles. Placing the implant above the muscle makes the recovery much easier on the body, but may look a little less natural than sub-muscular placement. With sub-muscular placement, the breast implants produce a more natural look and feel.
Combining Breast Implants with a Breast Lift
By incorporating a breast lift into your breast implant treatment, you can enjoy the added benefit of reducing sagging in the breasts. Sagging is often a result of aging, pregnancy or breastfeeding, so the breast lift component helps patients restore youthfulness to the breasts in addition to enhancing their size and shape.
