The following information provides answers to many of the questions that patients ask about breast lift with breast augmentation surgery.
Who can benefit from breast lift with breast augmentation surgery?
A breast augmentation with breast lift is particularly helpful for women whose breasts have lost substantial volume due to the effects of weight loss, pregnancy, or breast feeding. If your breasts have mild to moderate sag in addition to being small, then a breast augmentation with lift can enhance your breast fullness and return them to a more youthful position on the chest. Dr. Agha typically performs a crescent mastopexy with breast augmentation for those who need a small correction of the nipple-areola complex. This procedure involves excision of a crescent-shaped skin excess above the nipple-areola complex. Through this incision, the breast implant is placed in a subglandular or submuscular plane. The nipple-areola is then lifted appropriately over the new fuller breast mound.
For those with a larger quantity of skin excess, Dr. Agha employs a Benelli donut mastopexy to remove the excess skin and reposition the nipple-areola complex. Still, for more severe skin excess, together with breast tissue sagging, a breast augmentation can be combined with either a short-scar breast lift or anchor-type incision mastopexy.
