Breast Lift with Implants
Not sure if you should have breast lift surgery combined with implants? Read on
First step is to arrange to have a consultation with Dr Pedro Valente, this is important to determine your suitability as a candidate for breast lift and augmentation (implants) surgery. Dr Valente will examine your breasts and depending on the degree of ptosis (sagging) and the amount of volume you currently have, Dr Valente will advise if he can do both procedures in the one surgery. Sometime, if there is considerable sagging and volume, you may be advised to have the procedure in 2 stages ie a Breast lift/reduction first and then implants three to six months later.
Breast lift surgery (also known as mastopexy, or breast reconstruction) helps to restore the elasticity of the female breast tissue, typically after weight loss, pregnancy and childbirth, breastfeeding or ageing. The improvement in self-esteem and confidence can be remarkable, making a breast lift a worthwhile procedure for those who are feeling insecure or unhappy with their shape.
At your consultation with Dr Valente, he will examine your breasts and determine what would be the ideal breast lift technique for you.
( Different techniques may be required for different patients. This is often due to the age of the patient, the size of the breast, the amount of breast tissue to be removed and also depending on the end result the patient is looking for and what would suit you best.)
Please see below the variations of techniques for a breast lift:
There are four main types of breast lift surgery technique:
- Crescent Lift – involves a crescent of skin removed at the top of the nipple to improve nipple position. This is the least invasive breast lift.
- Benelli Lift – Otherwise known as a Circumareolar Lift. This is best used for slight nipple asymmetry or a mild lift. A doughnut-shaped incision is made around the areola to remove tissue and the skin is then ‘purse-stringed’ to tighten the breast skin. It is less invasive than full mastopexy. A flattening effect on the breasts may occur.
- Lollipop Lift – Or Vertical Scar Mastopexy. A lollipop-shaped incision is made from the crease of the breast vertically and surrounds the nipple. This is a very effective lift for many women with low hanging breasts.
- Anchor Lift – For significant breast droop. This is when the incision is made similar to the lollipop, but also travels along the breast crease, forming an anchor shape. This is the most invasive breast lift procedure, but very effective for women with a long inframammary fold (distance from breast crease to nipple).
At your consultation, Dr Valente will explain the risks , complications and limitations associated with the breast lift and implant procedure. .
