Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Lift with Implants

For women who want to lift the position of their breasts and add breast volume during the same procedure, plastic surgeon Jeffrey Copeland, MD, offers breast lift surgery with the placement of breast implants. Whether breast feeding, significant weight loss, or aging have cause the breasts to droop and lose their youthful shape, Dr. Copeland can design a cosmetic breast procedure that is tailored to suit your needs and goals. We invite you to learn more about this highly customized procedure by exploring the informative sections provided below.

What Is a Breast Lift with Implants?

A breast lift, medically referred to as mastopexy, is designed to reshape and elevate the breasts to eliminate sagging; however, a breast lift will not add or restore lost volume. When combined with breast augmentation using implants, a breast lift can more fully rejuvenate the breasts for a more shapely and youthful appearance.

What Are the Benefits of a Breast Lift with Implants?

Each breast lift with implants procedure can be customized by Dr. Copeland to achieve the unique goals of the patient. The benefits of your surgical plan may include:

  • Increased breast size
  • Improved shape and firmness
  • Removal of excess skin to reduce sagging
  • Elevated position of the breasts and/or nipples
  • Resized areolae
  • Improved symmetry between the breasts

In addition to the above benefits, many women who choose a breast lift with implants report a boost in confidence after the procedure.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift with Implants?

Women seek breast surgery for a wide variety of reasons. Candidates for a breast lift with implants typically wish to change the shape, size, and position of the breasts, as well as address any skin laxity. Women who simply want to increase the size of the breasts may be better suited for breast augmentation. Many women who opt for a breast lift with implants are mothers who wish to restore the appearance of their breasts to more closely resemble their pre-pregnancy figure. During pregnancy and after breastfeeding, the breasts often fluctuate in size and shape. After raising one or more children, the breasts may appear to sag or droop and have a deflated look. A breast lift with implants can address these changes, though Dr. Copeland recommends mothers wait until they have completed their families before undergoing breast surgery. The best candidates for a breast lift with implants are in good overall health, eat a nutritious diet, and exercise regularly. To discover if you are a good candidate for a breast lift with implants, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Copeland today.

How Is the Breast Lift with Augmentation Procedure Performed?

In most cases, Dr. Copeland begins the procedure with the augmentation. Depending upon the needs of the patient, the location of the implant, the type of implant, and the incision type will vary. After the implant is in place, the tissues supporting the breast can be lifted into position and any excess skin is removed. At this time, the shape of the breast can be further contoured to achieve the most natural-looking result. The process is then performed on the second breast to create a symmetrical, youthful, and beautiful appearance. A breast lift with implants is usually performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia.

What Is Breast Augmentation with a Lift Recovery Like?

As with any surgery, patients can expect mild swelling, bruising, and soreness immediately following the procedure. These side effects can be easily managed with oral pain medication and usually resolve quickly. Most patients are able to comfortably return to work or resume their normal activities after one week. Strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for approximately 4-6 weeks, depending upon the individual. Dr. Copeland takes great care during the planning and operation stages to minimize the appearance of any scarring. Visible scarring should continue to fade over time.

How Much Does a Breast Lift with Implants Cost?

The cost of a breast lift with implants will vary from patient to patient depending upon a number of variables. Implant type, implant placement, incision type, and the overall complexity of your custom surgical plan can all impact the total price. At the end of your initial consultation, after a physical exam and discussing your personal cosmetic goals, Dr. Copeland can provide an accurate quote for the cost of your procedure. For patients who might benefit from low monthly payment plans with little to no interest, we offer a number of financing options. Please contact a member of our staff to learn more about financing the cost of your breast lift with implants.
