Augmentation + Lift

DISCOVER DR. RAD'S APPROACH TO BREAST AUGMENTATION + LIFT

Augmentation + Lift

How do I know if I need an augmentation with lift?
With age, after pregnancy, or from an inherited asymmetry, a woman’s breasts may lose volume, the breast skin thins, stretch marks appear, and the nipples droop (called “ptosis”). As a result, her breasts lose curvature and fullness, clothing may no longer fit, and she may be self-conscious about her body image.

Recommended Procedures

  • Breast augmentation with a breast lift is a win-win: Dr. Rad restores the volume while also elevating the nipples back to a normal and symmetric position with minimal scars. 

Other Options

  • Breast Augmentation alone restores volume to the breasts without changing nipple position; this is recommended if the nipples are both symmetric and in a good position.
  • Breast Lift alone restores the normal breast shape and nipple position; it does not increase the volume of the breasts.

    How It’s Done

    • The implant is first placed below the muscle. Then, the breast skin is elevated away from the breast tissue and shaped to create a beautiful contour. The nipple is placed at the center of the breast.
    • The scar pattern is involves a ‘lollipop’ shape – circular around the areola/nipple and then straight down to the under-fold of the breast. 

    Safety

    • There is no ‘cookie cutter’ solution for everyone. This operation requires a high degree of skill, meticulous evaluation and careful surgical planning to arrive at the most safe and effective solution to meet your objectives.
    • Breast surgery is done under light general anesthesia which is delivered via a breathing tube. 
    • Dr. Rad works with a board certified anesthesiologist and performs surgery only in an AAAASF accredited surgery center.

    What to Expect

    • Mild to moderate discomfort is common and is easily controlled with pain medications. 
    • Recovery lasts 2 weeks.
