Will a breast lift increase my cup size?
It is important to understand the benefits and limitations of a breast lift. While a breast lift is ideal for bringing out the best in your natural assets, this procedure will not significantly change the size of your breasts. After a breast lift, you will enjoy a profile that is more youthful and uplifted, and your breasts have a firmer, plumper look. For many women, these enhancements help them feel better about their breast shape, even without an increase in volume.
Can I combine a breast lift with implants?
Many of Dr. Savalia’s patients choose to include breast implants with their breast lift and combine the benefits of both procedures. In addition to reshaping and uplifting the natural breast, incorporating breast implants means an increase in cup size. It is not at all uncommon to perform these surgeries as a combination procedure, often as part of a mommy makeover.
What’s the difference between a breast lift and breast reduction?
A breast lift and breast reduction both recontour your existing breast tissue for a more flattering look. However, during a breast reduction, Dr. Savalia removes excess tissue and reshapes the breast to create a more proportionate look. Some skin and tissue may be removed during a breast lift as well, but the amount is much less substantial, as the focus is on lifting rather than reducing the breasts.
Will I have scars?
In most cases, the incisions Dr. Savalia makes during a breast lift run around the areola and then vertically down the underside of the breast to the inframammary fold. In some candidates, a more limited lift may be possible using only the incision around the areola, but this technique will not allow for significant correction of the breast tissue. In other candidates, he may need to extend the incisions along the breast crease slightly, creating an anchor shape. Over time, and with the help of Dr. Savalia’s recommended scar-minimizing regimen, breast lift incisions heal and become inconspicuous, even though they are on the surface of the breast. Most of Dr. Savalia’s patients feel happy enough with their new look that scars are not a concern after recovery.
