Due to the effects of age, gravity and often due to the trauma sustained by the breasts and nipples when feeding during pregnancy, patients may be unsatisfied with the condition, shape, volume, and position of the breasts.
While this often happens naturally as a woman ages, things like rapid weight loss and pregnancy can expedite the process and leave women in search of a means to restore the youth and shape to their breasts even in middle age or 20s or 30s. These symptoms are caused primarily by excess skin, which is trimmed away during a breast lift along with excess fat and tissue.
A breast lift, even when performed alone, can provide dramatic results, completely reversing the look of sagging or aging breasts. Many women are satisfied with the prospect of a breast augmentation alone.
Some potential patients, however, are turned off by the fact that a breast lift, while being able to achieve firmer and more youthful breasts, may actually lead to a smaller cup size and even a slightly smaller appearance. Many patients find the positive change in appearance to be a necessary tradeoff for breasts that are once again firm and youthful, while other patients will not even consider a procedure that runs the risk of a reduction in the size of the breasts.
At Ordon Chopra Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery the expert surgeons are able to offer a combination surgery that we simply refer to as a breast augmentation with lift.
The surgery includes all of the hallmarks of a breast lift, but includes the introduction of breast implants to add firmness, volume and to address any loss in size that may have been sustained from the cutting away of tissue through the techniques of the breast lift. The breast implants are positioned beneath the chest muscle in order to add fullness to the upper pole of the breasts. It is a delicate procedure, but it is one that our doctors are well versed in and perform routinely.
Patients who have small to average size breasts, and who display symptoms of sagging breasts are often the most ideal candidates for a breast augmentation with lift because such patients would go from a smaller than average cup size to an even smaller cup size and are often some of the same patients who have already entertained thoughts of breast augmentation.
The breast augmentation with lift is available for patients who have finished nursing and are both physically and mentally healthy. Contact our board certified plastic surgeons Andrew Ordon, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Ritu Chopra M.S., M.D. through our contact page to schedule a consultation for a breast augmentation with lift. Or visit our offices in person or call during our regular office hours.
