Breast Lift & Augmentation
Sometimes more than one procedure is needed to give you the look that you want for your breasts. This is often the case for women who want to improve the position, shape and size of their breasts; particularly those who are concerned about a deflated or sagging breast appearance. Working together with Dr. Glenn M. Davis. Dr. Jeremy Pyle, or Dr. Benjamin Wood at our Raleigh, NC office, many women decide that incorporating breast implants along with a breast lift will be a better match for their appearance goals.
As a gifted, nationally recognized breast specialist, Dr. Davis is known for delivering natural looking results, which provide his patients utmost satisfaction and the renewed sense of confidence that they deserve. Dr. Pyle is also highly recognized and is a sought after surgeon for his cutting-edge techniques, caring manner, and exceptional results.
Please Request a Consultation to learn more about how combining a breast lift with breast augmentation can give you the look that you desire.
The Best Candidates
Women who choose this combined procedure will not only want to change the placement of their breasts, but will also want to add volume. For many women whose breasts have changed size or shape, simply re-elevating the breasts is not enough. Life changes such as pregnancy, nursing, or just aging alone, can cause sagging and a loss of breast volume. While a breast lift procedure itself elevates and reshapes the breast, it does not add volume. Women who want a more comprehensive enhancement of their breasts can add breast implants to their lift procedure. The breast lift and augmentation procedure is also a component of the increasingly popular Mommy Makeover.
What to Expect
During your initial consultation, Dr. Davis, Dr. Pyle, or Dr. Wood will work closely with you to determine the right breast placement and implant size to meet your cosmetic goals. Using our revolutionary VECTRA 3D breast imaging software, your surgeon will use photographs of you to create a virtual 3D model that will assist in developing the right strategy to work with your unique anatomy and proportions. This process lets you see an image of yourself with your new look, allowing unlimited adjustments before surgery to determine the right size implants, with the optimum placement for your body.
Dr. Davis, Dr. Pyle, and Dr. Wood use a variety of techniques, depending on the level of correction that’s needed. Although no surgery can be performed without incisions, our surgeons make every effort to minimize scarring. Ahead of time, your surgeon will discuss various incision options available to you based on the amount of surgical correction needed.
During your procedure, breast tissue will be lifted and reshaped, and the areola (pigmented area around the nipple) will be improved for an overall aesthetically pleasing appearance. Implants will also be inserted to create volume where it’s needed most.
With patient comfort in mind, our surgeons utilize fine absorbable sutures to close the incisions. Your body will naturally absorb the sutures so you won’t experience the discomfort associated with suture removal. This technique also allows patients the freedom to shower within the first 24 hours after surgery. Additionally, Dr. Davis, Dr. Pyle, and Dr. Wood do not incorporate the use of drains in the incision site. This drain-free approach greatly improves patient comfort, minimizes the risk of infection, and may reduce downtime.
After Your Procedure
One of the benefits of combining procedures, rather than scheduling them separately, is to have only one recovery period. Some soreness is expected at first, though discomfort is typically well controlled with pain medication. We will provide you with a supportive compression garment that you will wear for several weeks. The garment will aid in comfort, minimize swelling, and promote healing. Most women are ready to resume light daily activities in about a week, though more vigorous activity should wait a few more weeks or until your doctor gives you the okay.
The New You
We hope that all the time spent planning for your procedure has paid off with the perkier, more youthful looking breasts you’ve wanted for so long. Many women enjoy a boost in their appearance and self-esteem.
