Breast Augmentation with Lift | El Paso
Age, genetics, and childbearing often leave women with breasts that are sagging, droopy, and without a youthful round shape and appearance. A Breast Lift procedure can help you regain a more attractive figure. Your clothes will fit better and you will cast a more shapely contour. When combined with a breast augmentation, you will enjoy a whole new figure.
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises the breasts, removes excess skin and firming the supportive tissues around the breasts. A breast augmentation is the addition of fullness to your breasts via saline or silicone breast implants.
You may be a candidate for a Breast Augmentation with Lift if your breasts that:
- Sag or droop
- Lost their shape or volume
- Are flat, elongated or pendulous (drooping)
- Are asymmetrical
If you are in good overall health, do not smoke, have finished childbearing and have a realistic expectation of your results, you may be an excellent candidate for the procedure.
A Breast Augmentation with Lift procedure is performed with general anesthesia and commonly lasts for one to two hours. Dr. Gonzalez will make incisions in areas that will minimize any visible scarring. The type of incision will be dependent on several factors: the type of implant, the size and shape of your breasts, the site of implant insertion and your own body’s size and shape. He will then lift the breast and create a pocket for the implant. After the implants have been inserted and positioned beneath the nipples, the incisions are stitched closed, then taped and bandaged.
You may feel tired and sore for a few days and you should be able to resume your normal activities within a week to ten days. Dr. Gonzalez will remove your stitches five to ten days after surgery. Any resultant swelling will diminish over the next month or so.
Dr. Gonzalez will be happy to help guide you through the available options to help you make an informed decision.
