In some cases, you may discover that a breast lift or breast augmentation alone is not enough to reach your aesthetic goals. However, combining the procedures into a breast lift and augmentation could help create the results you are seeking. Dr. Julio Clavijo-Alvarez provides this surgery for patients in and around Pittsburgh, Monroeville and Wexford, PA.
What is Breast Lift and Augmentation?
A breast lift and augmentation procedure is a combination surgery that includes a breast lift and breast augmentation. In addition to enhancing the breasts with an implant, the breasts will also be lifted. The combination creates a youthful and natural-looking breast.
How Much Does Breast Lift and Augmentation Cost?
The cost of breast lift and augmentation is highly dependent upon the size of the implant and the surgical techniques used. At ReNova Plastic Surgery & Medical spa, we price all procedures on an individual basis.
Your unique pricing will be calculated during your consultation. Our office is glad to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through Dollar Bank and CareCredit®.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Lift and Augmentation?
If you’d like to enhance the size of your breasts while also lifting the position of the nipple, a breast lift and augmentation could be the right procedure for you. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this or any procedure is to schedule a consultation.
How is a Breast Lift and Augmentation Performed?
Your procedure will be customized to meet your exact needs. However, in most cases, our breast enhancement procedures are performed under general anesthesia. During your surgery, Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez will make the incision in an inconspicuous location, such as under the breast or around the areola.
He will then insert your chosen implant in the location discussed during your consultation. Once the implants are inserted, he’ll perform the lift, repositioning the breasts. The incisions will ultimately be closed with care, and your body will begin to acclimate to your new chest.
What is Recovery Like After a Breast Lift and Augmentation?
Recovery from a breast lift and augmentation is highly dependent on the individual. Many patients take an entire week off work or school to provide ample time for rest and healing. Full recovery will take several weeks, and during your consultation, our team will discuss the details of how to best care for the incisions.
How Long Will My Breast Lift and Augmentation Results Last?
Your breast lift and augmentation results are designed to last for the long-term. However, the body will continue to age and, over the years, your breasts may begin to sag. Proper diet and exercise will ensure the best outcome for the longest period of time.
