The breasts go through a variety of changes in life. Whether due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or genetics, the breasts tend to lose their youthful volume and position over time. If you’ve found you need a little extra lift and padding in your bras in order to get your breasts to look the way you want them to look in clothing, it might be time to consider one of our cosmetic breast procedures.

One popular option for lifting and shaping the breasts offered at our Henderson office is a breast lift with implants. This combination breast procedure pairs the lifting of the breasts and added volume with breast implants to reposition the breasts into a more youthful position on the breasts while also adding volume, shape, and projection to the breasts.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Himansu Shah has helped countless patients who are unhappy with the size, shape, or overall appearance of their breasts find confidence in their new aesthetic. Dr. Shah and our team of leading experts are committed to providing patients with the best results and experience possible.

What Is a Breast Lift?

Breast lift is a plastic surgery procedure to enhance the appearance of the breasts using one of three incision techniques either at the areola, a lollipop incision, or an anchor incision, depending on each individual patient’s requirements. With each incision, Dr. Shah will lift and reshape the breast tissue to compensate for sagging and stretched breast skin. The nipples and areolae are raised to a higher position to match the new position of the breasts, and any extra skin can be trimmed away from the areola to make them smaller. The last step is to trim away excess sagging skin.

If a patient has opted to include breast augmentation, the final point involves Dr. Shah creating breast pockets where implants are inserted using the incisions made for the lift. This makes implant placement accessible and simple, without having to add a new incision later to achieve an increase in breast volume.

Why You Should Consider Combining Breast Lift with Implants?

There are many reasons, both reconstructive and cosmetic, to combine these two breast surgeries. Combining breast lift with implants means that you only have to undergo one surgery since Dr. Shah can use the same incision used during the breast lift to place the implants. 

The implants will help create more cohesive results by adding volume to the breast since a breast lift will only raise them to a higher position; it cannot add volume where it’s been lost.

Lastly, combining surgeries may be less expensive and can reduce the recovery time and downtime associated with a surgical procedure.

Breast Lift with Implants: What Are My Options?

Choosing Your Breast Implant Size

Patients can choose between round or teardrop-shaped implants. Teardrop-shaped implants are known to create more natural-looking results and are less likely to move within the breast pocket. You will also need to decide on the material of your breast implants. Signature Plastic Surgery offers three types of implants:

Gummy Bear implants are the newest silicone implants and go by the name “Gummy Bear” or “Tear Drop” implants. Due to the viscosity of the gel inside, the implants feel thicker and firmer than other traditional silicone gel implants.

Silicone implants are made of medical-grade silicone that fills the implant shell. Additionally, the shell is also made of silicone. Due to the nature of the gel, silicone implants feel the most like natural breast tissue.

Saline breast implants use the same silicone shell as the silicone gel implants, but they are filled with sterile saline water. Saline implants are filled once inside the breast pockets, allowing Dr. Shah to make a small incision and adjust the implant size once in place.

Types of Breast Lift Incision

A breast lift is not a one-size-fit-all procedure. Dr. Shah views every breast lift procedure as entirely individual. Where the incisions will be placed depend on several factors, including personal preference and which incision will allow Dr. Shah to help you reach your ultimate results. Dr. Shah uses three different types of incision methods when conducting a breast lift:

During your consultation with Dr. Shah, you will discuss your situation, and Dr. Shah will help you determine which incision is the best option for you and your goals.

Breast Lift with Implant Recovery

A key aspect of Dr. Shah’s breast lift with implant approach is his ability to help potentially minimize recovery and downtime through meticulous surgical precision. Following the procedure, some mild swelling and bruising will be present, though they should subside relatively quickly. Initial soreness in the breasts is also a common side effect, but any discomfort can be managed with minimal medication. Strenuous activities and high-impact exercises will have to be put on pause for about one month, but you can do light exercising just after a week or so. At six weeks post-op, most patients are able to resume normal upper body exercises.
