Why Combine Breast Lift and Augmentation?
At our practice near Walnut Creek, combining breast augmentation with breast lift appeals to women who are looking not only for fuller breasts, but a solution to the sagging that can occur with age. The procedure can also restore fullness to the upper breast – a common problem for women who have had one or more pregnancies and have breastfed. Even if you are not seeking a change in cup size, the combination of an upper implant with the tightening of the deflated tissue can do wonders for the appearance of your breasts. Many moms choose a Mommy Makeover for an even more comprehensive improvement.
A full consultation with Dr. Mariotti will help you determine whether breast lift should be combined with augmentation. But for a quick answer, you can use one simple test: if your nipple is above the fold of your breast, you likely do not need a lift. If your nipple falls below the breast fold, or is just at the level of the fold, Dr. Mariotti will likely recommend a breast lift with augmentation.
Dr. Mariotti offers much more than beautiful results - he'll ensure that you feel relaxed and cared for. Discover why people from around Walnut Creek trust him for their plastic surgery.
This surgery will take 2.5 to 3 hours and take place at Premier Surgery Center in Concord, conveniently located near Danville, San Ramon and Walnut Creek. Most breast enhancement patients receive general anesthesia and are discharged from the recovery room after an hour or 2 of observation.
Showing Off Your New Look
Although your breasts will likely feel sore, the pain is easily managed with oral pain medication. You can resume light activity in 3 to 5 days. More strenuous activity should be avoided for 2 weeks. Because the tissue has been tightened, your new breasts will take 3 to 4 weeks to settle into their eventual shape. After recovery, you can enjoy the new youthful look of your breasts.
