Many women find that age, pregnancy, breast feeding and weight loss can lead to deflated-appearing breasts that may affect their self-image.
Most of these women desire a more youthful, firm breast. Sometimes an augmentation or a breast lift alone is not adequate to correct sagging breasts with loss of volume. Dr. Bauer is an expert in the field of cosmetic breast surgery and can help restore a more youthful breast with the combination of breast augmentation and breast lift.
Our plastic surgeon has extensive experience with both augmentation and lift, and he will speak with you in great detail about your goals and options. In some patients, the augmentation and lift can be combined in one operation, yet some circumstances might require that the lift be performed first and augmentation 3 months later. This decision is based on your size, shape and goals for the procedure.
The incisions vary depending on how much lifting is required. The combination of breast augmentation with lift is performed under general anesthesia for your comfort and safety, and the surgery lasts approximately 2.5 hours.
Following your beast surgery, you will wear a surgical bra which can be changed to a softer sports bra after a few days. Dr. Bauer uses a Rapid Recovery Protocol which allows you to return to light activities in 2-5 days and full activities in 3-4 weeks.
