Are you not satisfied with the size, shape, and general appearance of your breasts? You are not alone. Many women across the globe want fuller, perkier breasts compared to small, drooping, or sagging breasts. Apart from the aesthetic appeal, having full and firm breasts can help make you look more youthful and add a great deal of proportion to the rest of your body. With an augmentation lift, you can have the breasts you have always wanted.
What Is Augmentation Lift?
Augmentation lift is simply the combination of a breast augmentation and a breast lift. This means that it is a cosmetic surgery that will make your breasts bigger by inserting implants (augmentation) and at the same time, will lift the position of your breasts and areola (lift) for a more youthful, perky appearance.
This is one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgeries among women around the world. If a patient chooses to undergo breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, it is very often combined with a breast lift, also known as mastopexy.
Orlando plastic surgeon Dr. George Pope performs this surgery with a great deal of care and precision to provide patients with the best results possible. He will guide you through the beginning stages of the process and help you fully understand your options and what’s possible through the procedure.
An important part of the experience is choosing the type of implants that you feel would best fit your body and the final results you expect to see. There are three common types of implants:
• Saline – Saline implants are inserted inside your body through a small incision. First, the surgeon inserts an empty implant, which he/she then fills with saline. These may not feel as natural as other types of implants, but they are safe and effective.
• Silicone Gel – The most commonly used implants, silicone gel-filled implants provide a realistic and natural look and feel to your breasts. If ruptured, however, the gel can cause an adverse reaction to the body.
• Gummy bear – Gummy bear implants are ideal if you are worried about any ruptures. Even if the shell breaks, the gel will stay in place since it’s fairly firm and can hold its shape.
What to Expect During the Procedure
By combining the breast augmentation and the breast lift, patients can achieve a redefined look that can make them feel youthful and more beautiful. Depending on the look you wish to achieve, Dr. Pope will make incisions around your areola, under your breast fold, or in your armpit. These incision areas are chosen so as to strategically minimize the visibility of post-surgical marks.
Once the necessary incisions are made, Dr. Pope will then insert the implants through the incisions, either right behind your breast tissue or under your pectoral muscle. How and where your implant is inserted depends on the kind of implant you have chosen, just how large you want your breasts to be, and also your body type.
The breast lift part of the surgery includes making incisions around your areola, or a straight line starting from your areola to the creases of your breasts or horizontally along the creases of your breast. Dr. Pope will then remove excess tissues, fat and skin, minimize the size of the areola and then reposition the areola and nipple to a higher position so that your breasts will be lifted and perky.
Suitable Candidates for the Breast Augmentation Lift Surgery
If you are not happy with the look of your breasts and you want them to look bigger, firmer, and more perky, then an augmentation lift is the perfect solution. You will need to be in good general health and have realistic expectations to be considered for the surgery.
