Although a breast augmentation procedure may improve your bust by several cup sizes, the breast lift, or mastopexy, can reshape and recontour your breasts. A breast lift with implants may be another alternative for reshaping your appearance. This combination treatment is recognized for producing rounded, fuller breasts.
An adult woman in excellent health and has enough breast skin to expand her breasts is the ideal candidate for this procedure. Women who have recently gone through significant weight loss, had a baby, or are going through menopause, are among those that have used it.
If you become pregnant, your breasts might expand by up to three cup sizes, stretching the skin and creating drooping or deflationary breasts after they return to normal. A breast lift and implants procedure may assist.
I have gone through menopause. Can I have this procedure?
After menopause, the breasts may alter in shape. Your body may begin distributing fat differently as estrogen levels fall, moving it from your breasts to your abdomen. If you're experiencing a loss in breast volume, your breasts may appear flatter and less full on top than they once were. It can make one or more breasts look flat, particularly on top, when used alone or in combination with skin firmness changes. A breast lift and augmentation is an excellent method to reverse undesirable changes in volume.
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and repositions it over the areola to give the breasts a more youthful appearance. The addition of implants into this technique can help restore volume and refine the upper portion of each breast.

What types of breast implants are available?
Saline and silicone are the two most popular types of breast implants. Saline breast implants are filled with sterilized salt water, silicone covering to enhance size and form. These implants are often placed without their inner fluid, added as needed to shape the patient's wish.
Silicone breast implants are made of silicone gel that closely mimics the feel of human tissues. They differ somewhat from saline breast implants in that if a rupture occurs, the breast will not shrink or change shape. Nevertheless, the implant would need to be removed if a break happens.
Other Types of Breast Implants
Gummy Bear Implant: The name comes from the fact that if the top layer were to break, this implant would not change shape. They're usually hard and have distinct sides that mark top and bottom.
Round Implants: Women who want breast augmentation choose this method because it is meant to make breasts appear more significant. They do not have a specific top or bottom side, but they are round all over.
Smooth Implants: Smooth breast implants, as the name implies, have a softer feel about them. They are not rigid, allowing for more significant natural movement.
Textured Implants: Textured implants are notorious for being more fixed and entrenched in surrounding tissues, so they will not shift as much inside the breasts as other types of implants.
This cosmetic procedure, which takes three hours to complete and is usually done under general anesthesia, involves the application of botox and filler. The incision made depends on the amount of skin removal needed to get the desired lift. A small incision may be created around the areola if only a little skin is removed, whereas moderate tightening might necessitate an additional vertical incision to assist with shaping.
After revealing your new breast implant, the surgeon will create a pocket. They'll place your replacement implant beneath the breast skin, and the implant may have to be placed beneath the chest wall muscle. Finally, your doctor will use stitches, bandages, and gauze to close your incision and provide support and healing assistance.
A breast lift and implant recovery are two of the most critical aspects of the surgery. Your breasts will be swollen, bruised, and unpleasant for a few days after your treatment, which may be reduced with the use of oral anti-inflammatories and pain relief medications. After your operation, your bandages will come off in a day or two, and you'll need to wear a sports bra for two to three weeks.
If your nose is dripping, you'll be given drainage tubes for a few days to drain extra fluid. Your stitches may be removed after a week or two. For up to six weeks following surgery, you might experience numbness and swelling.
If you have any post-operative problems, contact your cosmetic surgeon as soon as possible.
