Breast Augmentation with Lift

Breast Augmentation with Lift in Vancouver with Dr. Jeannie MacDonald

Over time, breasts can lose firmness and change shape due to aging, loss of skin elasticity, weight loss, large size, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Breast lifts can raise and firm the breasts for a perkier, more youthful breast contour. For some women, loss of breast volume is also an issue. In such cases, breast implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift restore breast size, enhancing the shape and position of the breasts.

With considerable knowledge and compassion, Dr. Jeannie MacDonald aims to help her patients achieve the figures they desire. Dr. MacDonald is a Vancouver breast lift with implant surgeon working to help you reach your goals through quality surgical care and unmatched experience.

What is a Breast Lift with Augmentation?

A breast lift is a cosmetic procedure that lifts and repositions the breasts and nipples to create more youthful and aesthetically appealing breasts. However, while effective, the surgery will not make the breasts larger. 

Women who desire more volume with their lift can include breast augmentation with breast implants to increase the breasts’ size, shape, and position. Based on your anatomy, Dr. MacDonald uses different methods to restructure the breast shape and reposition the nipple and areola. 

Breast lift with augmentation addresses: 

  • Sagging or uneven breasts
  • Decreased volume
  • Stretched or drooping areolas
  • Nipple and areola location
  • Extra or stretched-out skin
  • Nipples that point downward
  • Nipples that appear below the breast crease
  • Pendulous or elongated breasts

What Can I Expect During a Breast Augmentation with Lift Procedure?

While Dr. MacDonald customizes breast augmentation with lift procedures to suit the needs of each patient, some general steps you can expect are:

Prior to Your Procedure

Breast augmentation with lift procedures require general anesthesia; therefore, you must complete a pre-operative questionnaire to ensure you are ready for surgery. You will be given instructions regarding arrival time and a reminder not to eat or drink the night before surgery.

Check-in and Anesthesia

You will be greeted by our team for check-in. Dr. MacDonald will ensure you are comfortable, answer any questions, and perform surgical markings. After you are anesthetized, Dr. MacDonald will begin your breast lift with augmentation.

The Procedure

Dr. MacDonald will create small incisions in the crease underneath the breast. Implants are inserted either above or below the pectoralis muscles, depending upon your anatomy. Then, Dr. MacDonald will begin the breast lift procedure to remove excess skin and tissue and to reposition the nipple and areola. The surgery lasts approximately 2 hours, and you will spend approximately 3 hours in the recovery room. You will be given a prescription for pain medication prior to leaving the hospital.

Breast Augmentation with Lift Aftercare

Breast augmentation with lift is an outpatient surgery, so you will need someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours. You may shower 48 hours after surgery. All stitches are dissolving, and incision care is simply ointment and gauze. 

You will have a wrap or binder on the day of surgery, and this should be worn full-time for the first 48 hours. After your first shower you will change into a sports bra that zippers in the front. This is worn for 2-4 weeks, or until completely healed. In 5-7 days following surgery, Dr. MacDonald will see you and show you how to care for the implants and incisions.

Plan to take off approximately 2-4 weeks for recovery. Avoid activities that increase your heart rate or use your chest muscles until 6 weeks after surgery. However, Dr. MacDonald encourages you to begin slowly walking as soon as possible.

Vancouver Breast Augmentation with Lift FAQs

The cost of breast lift with augmentation is determined by your unique situation and what’s required to achieve your desired look. Following your consultation, Dr. MacDonald’s assistant will provide you with a detailed breakdown of your breast augmentation with lift cost in Vancouver.

You will be given general anesthesia during your breast augmentation with lift, so you should not feel discomfort. You will be prescribed pain medication to take following your procedure. During your consultation, be sure to discuss your pain concerns with Dr. MacDonald.

Patients will notice visible improvement to their figures immediately following their breast lift with augmentation. However, swelling in the treated area often obscures results for a few weeks. As swelling subsides and your body heals, your enhanced, more youthful contours become visible. 

Breast lift with augmentation recovery time is dependent upon the individual, and swelling may take up to 6 months to resolve. 

By maintaining your healthy lifestyle and weight, you will experience long-lasting results from your breast augmentation with the lift procedure. As breast implants are not lifelong devices, implants should be exchanged or removed every 10-15 years.

The best time for a breast lift with augmentation is when you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for the procedure. Ideally, you should be at a stable weight. For any type of breast rejuvenation procedure, it is best to wait at least a year after you stop breastfeeding for your breasts to return to their pre-pregnancy size.
