Breast Augmentation With Lift San Diego

Breast augmentation with lift (mastopexy)

After childbirth, the breast shape and size can transform in unfavorable ways, causing self-consciousness for the client. Aging can also play a role in distorting the chest’s appearance, causing the breasts to sag and droop and the nipples to descend beneath the breast creases. In order to combat both volume loss and breast ptosis, a combination approach is often the recommended path forward. Breast augmentation with lift (mastopexy) can rejuvenate the upper body from all angles, leaving behind breast mounds that are shapely, youthful, and aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Sadrian performs Breast Augmentation With Lift in San Diego for patients who desire a naturally fuller bust and the positive self-image that goes with it.

What are the different options for implants?

Dr. Sadrian will help you to determine the best type of implants for you. Saline implants are filled with a harmless saltwater solution and can be inserted through an armpit incision unfilled, minimizing postoperative scarring. Silicone implants are known for their authentic look and feel and come in multiple sizes, shapes, and textures to suit your tastes. Gummy bear implants are considered “form-stable” and come in a tear-drop shape that many women find to be highly organic-looking.

What is fat transfer breast augmentation?

For those women who desire a more modest increase in cup size and who don’t wish to use implants, Dr. Sadrian can perform an augmentation procedure using your own body fat. This approach has the added benefit of contouring and slimming the donor area. Fat is taken from the belly, thighs, or hips and is then purified and sterilized, preparing it for transfer. Dr. Sadrian strategically injects the harvested fat into the chest area to achieve a subtle yet pleasing enhancement. Patients who choose fat transfer breast augmentation don’t have to worry about replacing their implants down the line, and they can relax knowing that complications are unlikely.

What are the different choices for the incisions?

During your San Diego Breast Augmentation With Lift procedure, Dr. Sadrian can place your incisions around the nipples with scars well-hidden in the darker pigments of the areolas. The other options are beneath the breasts in the inframammary folds, or within the armpits. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, which Dr. Sadrian will explain in depth during your private consultation. In each case, he will do his best to minimize your scarring and place the incisions where they are least visible. For the inframammary incisions, scars are covered by the bra or bikini line, while for the armpit incisions, scars are inconspicuous within the skin folds.

What are the options for implant placement?

There are two choices for implant placement: below or above the pectoralis chest muscles. There are advantages and disadvantages to each choice that Dr. Sadrian will explain in person. If the implants are placed beneath the chest muscles, it can reduce the risk of complications such as capsular contracture. Implants placed above the pec muscles can be less painful for the patient and can improve the position of the nipples.
