Combination Breast Lift and Augmentation
Patients who wish to restore breast volume can also choose to have breast implants inserted during a breast lift procedure. Breast lift surgery with implants results in increased breast size as well as enhanced breast shape and position. The size and shape of the breast implants used will depend on the woman’s aesthetic goals. Dr. Markelov works with each patient individually to help her achieve a more youthful-looking figure with breast lift.
Did you know?
New statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show breast lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1. Many women opt for a breast lift with implants in order to attain natural-looking, full, shapely breasts.
What post-operative instructions will I need to follow?
Dr. Markelov will prescribe pain medication to help keep you comfortable, and many patients find they can switch to Tylenol after the first few days. While you’ll be able to get up and walk around the house the same day of surgery it might take a week before you can resume most daily activities. Many patients return to work within the first week after breast lift surgery, depending on the nature of their jobs. You will need to wear a support bra at all times and limit exercise other than walking for the first 6 weeks after a breast lift. Dr. Markelov will provide you with detailed instructions about when it is safe to resume any activity.
