A woman’s breasts begin to droop or sag due to various reasons such as age, lost elasticity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and many more. This decline in the breast’s firmness and youthful appearance has caused women to be frustrated and hopeless. 

Worry no more, breast lift and augmentation are here! A breast lift surgery can help lift the breasts and restore their firmness. If areolas have been stretched, a breast lift can reduce them. However, it has been observed for many years that breast lift in tandem with breast augmentation yields results that are more remarkable. 

Therefore, aside from adjusting the position of your nipple and areola, you have the opportunity to make use of breast implants to achieve that perkier and youthful look!

Today, we will show you the basics of breast lift, how it works with breast augmentation, and the best service provider for breast lift Northern Virginia takes pride in.

What is a Breast Lift?

In simple terms, breast lift or mastopexy is a procedure where the nipple and areola’s locations are adjusted to arrive at a more natural and proportionate effect. The purpose of breast lift is to reduce the areola’s size to balance the whole breast.

Incisions are first created to remove excess skin and tissue, and then the nipple and areola are positioned naturally. There are different types of breast lift techniques, depending on a woman’s need. Some common types of breast lift are as follows:

  • Doughnut breast lift: For women who have minimal sagging.
  • Lollipop breast lift: For women who have moderate sagging.
  • Anchor breast lift: For women who have moderate to severe levels of sagging.

There are visible results right after the surgery, but the long-term results will take several months since swelling will need to settle. Just make sure that you take proper care of your skin by not limiting its exposure to the sun and controlling your weight.

A breast lift alone will not change the size of a women’s breast, so this would be an excellent treatment for those already satisfied with their breasts’ size but are not content with the shape or firmness.

Why is Breast Lifting Paired with Breast Augmentation?

In many cases, breast augmentation is added to breast lift procedures to maximize the surgery results. Do take note, though, that it’s not simply a matter of adding large implants. The key is having the right volume to make your breasts fuller and wholly proportional.

That is why it is critical to consult an expert before you undergo the procedure so that your specific needs can be assessed and the proper breast procedure can be administered. 

Once the incisions are made in the breast lift procedure, the breast implant can be inserted under the pectoralis muscle. This will help sustain the breast’s new adjusted position for a long time.

You might be wondering what type of implant is best for you. Well, you can choose any of the following breast implants: 

  • Saline: Empty implants are inserted into your breast, then filled with saline right after. There is a higher risk of rupture for this type of implant.
  • Gummy Bear: Compared to saline, it is firmer and less likely to rupture, and it can hold its shape for an extended period.
  • Gel: This is considered the top choice for women because of their natural feel and fewer risks involved in ruptures.

When you combine the two breast procedures, the results are firmer breasts and more considerable cleavage, boosting women’s confidence. To achieve the best results, a breast lift is paired with breast augmentation. However, this is not the case if the breasts sag or droop below a certain point.

Finding the Best Surgeon for a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation

Finding the best surgeon can be a pain, and looks can be misleading. Since this is a major surgical procedure, you need someone you can rely on, not just during the procedure but also in post-surgery care.
