Combining Breast Lift Surgery with Implants: Is It Right for Me? By The Landings Surgical Centre on May 13, 2024

While a breast lift alone can do wonders for the breasts, combining breast implants with a breast lift adds volume to the breasts and enhances the final results. 

At Landings Surgical Centre, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau can determine whether you’re a good candidate for a breast lift with implants. Serving HalifaxNova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island, the team at Landings Surgical Centre welcomes you to schedule a consultation.

About Breast Lift Surgery

A breast lift, also called mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to lift sagging breasts and improve their perkiness and profile. 

It’s important to understand that breast lift surgery does not increase the size of the breasts. Instead, excess tissue is removed to make the breasts firmer and reduce sagging. A breast lift can also help improve breast symmetry, creating evenly shaped breasts.  

Why Combine Breast Lift Surgery with Implants?

Breast lift surgery doesn’t add volume to the breasts or make them bigger. However, combining a breast lift with breast augmentation, or implants, can restore volume and increase the size of the breasts to enhance their overall appearance.

Combining breast lift surgery with implants can be especially beneficial when the breasts appear deflated or when larger breasts are desired. Some other benefits include:

  • Perkier bustline
  • Fuller breasts
  • Improved breast shape
  • Greater breast symmetry
  • More youthful appearance
  • Improved confidence 

Candidates for Breast Lift Surgery with Implants

Breast lift surgery with implants is a great option for many women looking to restore the perkiness and fullness of their breasts. In order to be considered for breast lift surgery with implants, patients must meet certain criteria. Ideal candidates for combining both procedures include those who:

  • Are in good general health
  • Are free of autoimmune disorders, uncontrolled diabetes, or other health conditions that can affect healing
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Are at a stable weight
  • Have breasts that are sagging and have lost volume 
  • Are non-smokers or willing to stop at least one month before and after surgery
  • Are done having children 
  • Are not breastfeeding

It should be noted that those who have a large amount of excess skin may not be good candidates for both a breast lift and implants as their tissues may lack sufficient elasticity. Additionally, those who are not at their ideal weight or have a lot of fluctuation with their weight may not be ideal candidates since weight changes can affect the long term results of breast lift surgery with breast implants.
