Considering a Breast Lift with Implants: What to Know

Breast augmentation continues to be the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States. This is because the events of many women’s lives, such as having children and the simple effects of aging, can have a dramatic effect on the body. Although a breast augmentation can sometimes be effective on its own, a breast lift within the same surgical procedure can sometimes be beneficial. Here’s what to know about this combination procedure and how it can help.

Choosing an Implant Type

There are a few different options available when it comes to breast implant types. This is one of the most important decisions to be made during a breast augmentation or breast lift with implants. Your board-certified plastic surgeon can guide you to the right type for you during a consultation.

The three main types of implants are:

  • Saline – The best option for women who wish to keep the scarring from the incisions to a minimum. The downside is that these implants have a higher likelihood of rupturing.
  • Silicone – Generally the most popular choice due to their realistic feel and natural look.
  • Gummy Bear – The recommended choice for women that are worried about the possibility of ruptures.

The selection of implant placement is also a big part of the breast lift with implants process. Breast implants can be placed either behind the breast tissue – known as sub glandular – or behind the pectoral muscle – known as submuscular. Submuscular placement produces a more natural look to the augmented breast, but it also takes a longer period to heal.

Size Considerations

Selection of implant size is another one of the critical elements that will be considered during your consultation. You should be sure to have a general idea of how large you want your breasts to be after the procedure. Your plastic surgeon can make a recommendation on the most flattering size for your body and how it will fit with your surgical plan.

Why add Implants?

A breast lift involves the elimination of excess skin along with moving the nipple and the areola. A breast lift on its own gives the breasts a younger, perkier look and is ideal for women who have sagging. The addition of implants can give the breasts further volume and projection along with their improved position. This combination procedure can provide all-around improvement in the appearance and profile of the breasts without having to opt for surgery more than once. It comes with one recovery and excellent results.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is focused on helping women become happier with the shape and size of their breasts. When you are considering breast augmentation, it is important to work with a board certified plastic surgeon such as our doctors at Evolv Medical Aesthetics. This ensures that you will be getting the most advanced implant technologies and advanced augmentation techniques to get the shape and size you want for the body you have dreamed of.

What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

This type of breast augmentation uses liposuction techniques to remove excess fat from other parts of the body and then injects that fat into the breasts. It is the safest and most natural material to add into your body. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions since it is your own body tissue. It will also ensure that your breasts look and feel natural, rather than giving you an unnatural effect. There are no scars with fat augmentation, and there is no rippling or thinning over time. Also, no maintenance is required for this natural breast augmentation, unlike silicone implants.

However, this type of breast augmentation is not very beneficial for women who want major changes to their breast size, shape, and contour. Also, this process is more complex than that of getting normal silicone or saline implants.

Fat Transfer Acts as An Alternative to Implants

Fat transfer is a less invasive way to augment the breasts. The transplanted fat cells can survive and expand. It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures done because women love the results. It is very beneficial because it creates a natural look that uses no foreign objects.

How does the procedure work?

At the consultation appointment with one of our doctors. You two will decide on the amount of fat needed to augment your breasts for the desired look, then you will choose which area of the body will be used to harvest excess fat from.

After the treatment plan is created, your doctor will perform liposuction to remove unwanted fat from a specific location to create a more pleasing shape in that area. The harvested fat is then purified through a centrifuge and is optimized for injection. The fat is then injected into the breasts in precise locations with just the right amount of fat to create a more aesthetic breast contour. Some of the fat won’t take to the breasts, which is why many physicians will inject a bit more than the desired result. This fat will be naturally metabolized into the body. Throughout several weeks, you will see your stunning results.

Who is a good candidate?

This type of breast augmentation is not ideal for women who want major changes to the contours of their breasts. However, if you only seek for one cup size in augmentation, you might be a good candidate. The fat transfer is not meant to create a large degree of change like the breast implant.

You also need to have enough fat to be taken during the liposuction process. You need to have excess fat in the butt, thigh, or belly area that can be grafted into the breasts. Women also need to have strong elasticity and tone to prevent sagging. Though women can have breast lift surgery to address stretch marks and sagging, fat augmentation is not meant to lift sagging breasts. To know if you are a good candidate for this procedure, consult with one of our doctors at Evolv Medical Aesthetics.
