Breast Lift with Implants
Some women wish to also undergo breast augmentation with breast implants together with a breast lift. This operation is possible, however doctors recommend initially undergoing a lift separately and waiting until healing has completed (approximately one year later) before placing the breast implants. The woman should be made aware that a breast lift together with breast augmentation is not a permanent procedure because the implants need to be replaced after some time, possibly removed, and the breast will need to be lifted once again.
A surgical breast lift combined with breast augmentation is performed when women desire an improved shape and at the same time want the lifted breast to be augmented. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, lasts about 1.5-2 hours and involves a hospital stay of about 4 days. A return to work is possible in approximately two weeks. The surgical outcome lasts several years and varies individually.
