Breast Lift with Implants
The appearance of the breasts can change over time due to a variety of factors, including pregnancy, breastfeeding, gravity, and the natural aging process. Due to a loss of breast tissue and/or inelastic supporting skin, the breasts may sag, droop, change position, or diminish in volume. Breast augmentation is designed to improve and enhance the volume and shape of the breasts, while a breast lift is designed to elevate the position of the breast and eliminate any excess skin. However, when combined, a breast lift with implants (also known as breast augmentation mastopexy, or BAM) can offer women a more comprehensive rejuvenation with beautiful results. Each BAM procedure can be custom-tailored to meet your individual needs.
Candidates for Breast Lift with Augmentation
If you desire to increase the volume of your breasts while simultaneously repositioning their placement on the chest wall, a breast lift with implants may be right for you. During the consultation process, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will perform a physical examination, carefully review your medical history, discuss your expectations, and help determine if this comprehensive procedure can meet your needs. For ideal candidates, breast augmentation mastopexy can:
- Increase volume
- Improve overall shape
- Elevate breast position
- Reposition the nipples
- Reduce the size of the areolas
- Improve firmness
- Restore youthful appearance
- Boost confidence
The Breast Augmentation Mastopexy (BAM) Procedure
Depending upon the techniques used for your procedure, breast augmentation mastopexy is usually completed within one to three hours. All BAM surgeries are performed using general anesthesia. In most cases, the same incision used for the breast lift can also be used to place the implant. Using his experience and the latest surgical techniques, our experienced plastic surgeon can help minimize any potential scarring and expedite your recovery.
Recovery After Breast Augmentation with Lift
Most of our patients are able to return home on the same day as their breast lift with implants procedure. After BAM surgery, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani recommends resting for approximately two weeks before returning to work or your normal routine. Some patients may feel comfortable returning earlier, depending upon their comfort level. For two weeks following your procedure, a compression garment can be worn to aid in the recovery process. Patients typically experience some swelling and bruising after breast surgery, though oral medication can easily manage any discomfort.
