Breast Lift With Implants
Conveniently located to serve Westchester, White Plains, Bronx, & Mt. Kisco
As a woman’s breasts age, the shape of the breast becomes less pleasing. The resulting shape of the breast flattens due to volume loss; there is a change in the quality of the skin and tissue. In addition, the nipple-areola complex descends giving the breasts an unattractive shape with down-pointing nipples. When there is both volume loss and an abnormally shaped breast a breast lift with a breast implant may be recommended.
Every woman is unique and Dr. Farella understands making this decision is a personal one needing expert medical guidance. He will work with you to find just the right plan to fulfill your needs. This combination procedure in Westchester is a very complicated one and requires a plastic surgeon who has a high level of experience to match the complexity of the procedure. With Mastopexy augmentation, careful attention to detail must be put in place to give patients the results they desire.
The Mastopexy Augmentation Procedure
Mastopexy augmentation is a combination of a breast lift and a breast implant; it is two operations in one. The combination procedure is more complicated than either the mastopexy or the breast augmentation alone. This operation can be performed in a one-stage or a two-stage procedure in Westchester. When performed as a one-stage procedure the implant and the lift are done on the same operative day. When performed as a two-stage procedure the lift is done first and at a later date the implants are placed, or the implants are placed first and the mastopexy is performed at a later date. Performing the breast lift with the implant at the same time is more challenging than the two-stage procedure. The mastopexy augmentation (breast lift with implants) leaves additional scars when compared to an augmentation alone.
Breast Implant Options
Silicone or saline implants can be used when performing mastopexy augmentation. Dr. Farella has a special volume sizing system that gives you an idea of which size breast would work best for your body. While different-sized implants may be used depending on the volume desired, Dr. Farella recommends using smaller implants so as to prevent unsightly scars as well as prolonged wound healing problems.
Who is Right for Mastoplexy Augmentation
- Patients who seek better-shaped breasts and desire more volume.
- Patients that are willing to accept additional scars to improve breast shape.
- Patients who seek higher placed nipples, better-shaped breasts, small diameter nipples.
- Patient who are in good health
- Patients with realistic expectations
- Patients who are doing it for the right reasons (i.e. for themselves)
Risks and Complications
While complications can occur, they are rare. Risks and complications may include but are not limited to scarring, bleeding, infection, breast asymmetry, delayed healing, contour irregularities, deformity of the breasts, painful breasts, changes in sensation of the nipple or the breast, blood clots with pulmonary complications, as well as, risks and complications associated with anesthesia.
The one-stage approach requires more experience compared to other types of breast surgery and has a relatively high revision rate. It is important to understand that all implants are temporary devices and will eventually need to be replaced.
Mastopexy augmentation may be performed as an outpatient procedure in Westchester under general anesthesia. The surgery usually takes three to four hours.
Avoid aspirin for two weeks following surgery.
Avoid activities that raise your pulse or blood pressure.
