Breast Lift vs. Breast Implants
In comparing the effects of a breast lift to breast augmentation, it is important first to understand the concerns you wish to address. If you are experiencing sagging, a breast lift can tighten up the skin of your breasts, allowing them to sit higher on your chest.
On the other hand, if your main concern is increasing the size of your breasts, then breast implants are ideal for creating larger breasts with greater volume. However, It should be noted that breast augmentation does not improve the effects of your breast lift.
Benefits of Combining Breast Lift With Breast Implants
There are many advantages to combining a breast lift with breast implants. Here are a few examples:
- Many issues can be addressed – combining procedures means that you can reap the benefits of a breast lift with the benefits of augmentation: reduced sagging, repositioning of the nipples, and an enlargement of the breasts. One procedure alone may not provide the full aesthetic improvement you hoped for.
- Only one surgery – Instead of having two separate procedures at separate times, only one day in surgery will be necessary. This can not only be more cost-effective but also makes the procedure fit more easily into your calendar.
- One recovery with a similar timeline – Undergoing a breast lift and breast augmentation at the same time does lengthen your downtime. Still, not drastically, so your recovery timeline will be similar to having just one procedure.
How Much Does a Breast Lift with Breast Implants Cost?
At the CREO Clinic in London, a breast lift with breast implants starts from £12,900.
A full cost breakdown will only be available after your first consultation, as each surgery is bespoke and must first be tailored to your individual needs.
Financing options are also available should you wish to spread the cost of your procedure over a longer period.
Breast Lift With Implants Procedure
Your mastopexy augmentation can be done in one or two stages. When performed in a single stage, your implants are inserted over your pectoral muscle via an incision on your breast, then a small section of skin is removed, and the resulting gap is closed with sutures to create the lift effect. Different breast lift incisions can be used depending on your requirements.
In situations where the skin is very stretched or thin, or the implants are too large, it may be necessary to perform the procedure in two separate stages. The first stage is your breast lift, and then 3 to 6 months later, you will undergo another surgery for your augmentation.
How Long is Recovery After a Breast Lift With Implants?
A combined breast lift and augmentation require a similar recovery to either procedure if performed independently. Generally, you will need roughly two weeks to get back to normal day-to-day activities such as work and approximately 4 to 6 weeks to return to physical activities involving the lower half. At the six-week mark, you should feel comfortable returning to your full exercise regime (including exercises that stress your upper body) without issue.
When Can You See Results?
Your breast lift and augmentation effects will be visible immediately after your operation. The final results can be seen once your swelling has completely subsided, generally around six months to a year.
