Details

For women who have small, saggy breasts, breast lift with round implants procedure may be a great option to consider. The implants increase the size of the breasts, improving the fullness and excision of the upper pole. The breast lift part of the procedure can lift the breasts and nipple position, make the breasts rounder, adjust the size and shape of the areolas, and improve symmetry. These two main breast procedures are commonly done as a single operation and it is a powerful combined procedure for improving the appearance of the breasts.

How Does it Work?

Breast lift procedure is performed on patients with mammary ptosis (sagging breasts). The objective of this procedure is to raise the breasts to give them a more attractive shape (round and lifted), relocate the areolas and decrease the size of the areolas (if necessary). This surgery should be performed only after the patient has already had a full development of the breasts. There is no upper age limit. In general, breast surgery, whether breast augmentation, lifting or reduction, does not alter the ability to breastfeed in the event of a possible future pregnancy. After pregnancy and a lactation period, the condition of the breasts is unpredictable. In some patients breastfeeding causes minimal changes in the breasts, while in others the changes are noticeable. If you want to have breast surgery after breastfeeding, you should wait at least 3 months after you stop breastfeeding to practice the procedure. A breast lift can be done with or without breast implants. However, breast lift with round breast implants is one of the commonly performed plastic surgery procedures.


What Does a Breast Lift with Round Implants Involve?

1.         Consultation for Breast Lift with Round Implants

Your breast lift with round implants process begins with an online consultation. In this stage, our specialists listen to your complaints and your expectations, and they inform you about whether you need a breast lift with round implants or any other/additional procedure. It is important to share all your medical information and visual data you have that may be useful at this stage.

2.         Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

At this second stage, we will offer a list of clinics or surgeons according to the criteria you provide us. You will examine all of them and then select one of them. Depending on your choice, we start planning your trip and the entire process.

3.         Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a consultation with your surgeon. The surgeon will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and concerns and also make you understand what you should expect from your surgery and the potential risks or complications of the procedure. Your surgeon and the clinic will explain the whole breast lift with round implants process clearly and try to simulate it as much as possible, in order you to feel well-prepared.

4.         Medical Examinations

Before the breast lift with round implants procedure begins, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the process. If you have any condition to be treated before the breast lift with a round implants process, your surgeon will try to eliminate it first.

5.         Surgery

It is a procedure that is performed under general anesthesia and lasts approximately 2-3 hours depending on the characteristics of the breasts. After breast measurements, implant selection is determined, the appropriate breast lift technique will be decided based on the extent of flaccid breast skin. For severe ptosis of the breast (sagging breasts), an "anchor" incision is made. This incision surrounds the perimeter of the areola, extends to the breast crease, and continues horizontally along the breast crease. For moderate sagging breasts, a lollipop incision is made around the perimeter of the areola and extends to the breast crease only. For slightly sagging breasts, a “donut” or circumareolar incision is made around the perimeter of the areola only. Surgeons choose the best option to consider minimize scarring. For this reason, the procedure typically begins with the placement of the round implant through a small incision. This fills the loose skin of the breast and reduces the amount of sagging skin as part of the breast lift. By doing this, the extent of your scar is minimized rather than committing to a large breast lift incision initially followed by implant placement. The implants are generally placed in a dual submuscular plane.

 

Things You Should Consider After Breast Lift with Round Implants Surgery

  • After the surgery, you can expect pain, swelling, and bruising of the breasts. It is also normal for some discharge or water-blood to come out of the wounds in the first 48 hours as it is a fresh wound.
  • Micropores or bandages over the incisions should be left until the surgeon removes them. The patient can bathe normally, and after the shower dry the micropores with the hairdryer in cold.
  • The postoperative bra should be worn for 4 weeks day and night. It should only be removed during the shower or to wash it.
  • Apply local cold on breasts for 3 days.
  • You may need someone to help you in the shower for the first 48 hours after surgery.
  • Do not drive a car in 1 week
  • Do not do exertion activities, lift heavy objects or go to the gym for 4 weeks. Remember, if it hurts don't do it.
  • Avoid sexual activities for 3 to 4 weeks. Again, very carefully and if it hurts do not.
  • Avoid sleeping on your stomach until the pain subsides.
  • Do not expose yourself to the sun for 1 month
  • No swimming pool or sea for 1 month
  • The breasts may appear somewhat asymmetrical or "high" after surgery due to inflammation. When the inflammation subsides with the days, the breasts will look more symmetrical and natural.
  • The patient can feel the sensation of liquid or air inside the breasts. They may also feel bumps or pulls caused by the recovery of damaged nerves. These symptoms are normal and will disappear in the first weeks after surgery.
  • For patients predisposed to stretch marks, lubrication of the breast skin is recommended before and after surgery.

 

FAQ

Am I A Good Candidate for The Breast Lift with Round Implants Surgery?

The patient may be a candidate for this surgery if she has any of the following conditions:

  • Sagging breasts (large or small)
  • Much excess skin on the breasts
  • Lack of firmness in the breasts
  • Nipples that are no longer in the most projected part of the breasts.
  • Stretch marks and lax skin on the breasts
  • Very large diameter areolae

What Are the Preoperative Instructions of Breast Lift with Round Implants Surgery?

Smoking negatively alters the arterial circulation of the skin. If you are a smoker, you should stop smoking at least two weeks before and two weeks after surgery to decrease the risk of smoking-related complications. There are medications and supplements that increase the risk of bleeding. Some of these are Alka Seltzer, Aspirin, Warfarin, Ibuprofen, Dristan, Naproxen, Vitamin E or Ginkgo Biloba. You should notify your surgeon if you take any of these medications before scheduling the surgery.

What Is the Advantage of Combining A Breast Lift with Breast Implants?

By combining these procedures, you can add volume to the breast and have more fullness of the upper part, while removing excess sagging skin. This is done in a single operation and avoids any second procedure with additional anesthesia. By placing the implant first, most of the loose skin is “filled” with the implant, and any excess residual skin is removed with a mastopexy or breast lift. As a result, less skin is removed after implant placement, thus resulting in a more limited breast lift incision pattern and less scarring.
