For many women, a breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a great solution for combating drooping breasts, or ptosis. This condition is a common one among women as they age, undergo drastic weight loss, or have children. This effective process can be enhanced by also having an augmentation, also known as a mammaplasty or “boob job,” performed along with the breast lift. An augmentation will add volume to enhance the breasts. Together, an Augmentation-Mastopexy procedure is a great solution for patients looking for perkier, more shapely breasts.
Breast augmentation is an incredibly common procedure, and indeed the most common plastic surgery procedure performed by Dr. Lane Smith at his Las Vegas practice. As you can see from the before and after images, Augmentation-Mastopexy can not only correct ptosis and uneven breasts, but lead to a larger, fuller bust. For most women, this leads to improvements that allow them to feel more sexy, have clothes that fit better, and give more confidence overall.
When receiving breast augmentation with a breast lift, the first thing that will happen is a thorough consultation with Dr. Smith to discuss your desired goals. There are several things a patient must consider before receiving a breast lift with augmentation, including size, shape, final position, and the type of implant used. Dr. Smith will guide you during the consultation to help you arrive at the right decision for you. As such, Dr. Smith offers a variety of options to help determine the final appearance of your new breasts. As you can see in the before and after gallery, the outcomes are varied and numerous, but fit each patient’s customized desires and are more aesthetically pleasing.
The size of the implant being used will vary from person to person, but in Las Vegas the most common size is approximately 400 cc’s, which is larger than most in the United States. Choosing a final size for your breasts is a major decision. The size is often considered in conjunction with the final position of the implant, which can be high, medium, or slightly low. Higher implants are perceived as more “fake” looking, while lower implants are closest to a more “natural” look.
One of the biggest concerns among women getting implants is the appearance of a scar. Due to the nature of the procedure, a scar is inevitable. With Dr. Smith’s skill and artistry, he is able to keep breast lift scars virtually undetectable in your favorite swimsuit. A quick scroll through the gallery reveals that scarring is less an issue than one might think, as the final product - and the benefits that come with it - far outweigh the negatives of a tiny scar.
Finally, Dr. Smith will provide you with the choice between silicone and saline implants, the former of which are the most common. Silicone implants have a lifetime warranty and are less prone to “rippling.” Silicone implants offer a very natural look and feel. Saline and silicone implants have warranties; but the time varies on each warranty. One main benefit of saline implants is they are filled after inserted into the breast. This results in minimal scarring and complete control over the size of the implant.
