Las Vegas Breast Lift with Augmentation

Why more Las Vegas women are choosing to include a breast lift with their breast augmentation

In our practice, more popular than the breast lift alone is the breast augmentation-breast lift combination surgery. More women are choosing this procedure because it is so customizable and results in a dramatic enhancement in their appearance and comfort. With this option, you get the best of both procedures: fuller and perkier breasts, greater cleavage, and nipples in a more ideal position.

How can I tell if I need a lift?

While the only reliable way to determine if a breast lift is necessary is to consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon, there are some general characteristics that can indicate a breast lift for you.

First, stand in front of the mirror. Are your nipples facing forward, or do they tend downward? Are they positioned above, at, or below the crease under your breasts? Typically, if your nipples are drooping below the breast crease (surgeons call this the “inframammary fold”), you will need a breast lift in addition to implants to achieve an aesthetically pleasing breast position.

Should I get saline or silicone for a breast aug/lift?

Your implants can be either saline or silicone. Both have achieved beautiful results for our patients; what matters most is choosing the implant type that will allow for the feel that you want to achieve and that will work best with your body and lifestyle. Dr. Pancholi will go over all your options at your consultation and answer any questions you have so you can make the best choice.

What happens during breast lift with augmentation surgery?

Breast lift with augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed using general anesthesia. It takes about 2 hours. During surgery, excess skin is removed, the nipple and areola are raised and reduced (if desired), and your chosen breast implants are positioned to achieve a larger, lifted and natural-looking breast contour. Dr. Pancholi operates exclusively in an accredited hospital or outpatient surgery center operating rooms and uses the services of fully qualified anesthesiologists so he can focus fully on your surgery.

Will implants go over or under the muscle for a breast lift with augmentation?

Dr. Pancholi will almost always choose to place implants under the muscle for a breast aug/lift. This gives the implant greater support, minimizing sagging from becoming an issue yet again. Submuscular placement also provides greater tissue coverage, so you are less likely to see implant edges or feel the implant under your skin. There is also a lower risk for capsular contracture.

“Dr. Pancholi is a very talented and educated surgeon. I have recommended him to several friends and co-workers who were also very pleased with the services provided. He took the time to notice that I had kyphoscoliosis and after the procedure I look and feel absolutely amazing…My body now looks perfect, and you would never know that my breasts were enhanced—what more could you ask for?”

Why can’t I just get breast implants to fill out the extra skin?

In theory, it seems as though simply placing implants underneath sagging breasts should “inflate” them to assume a more youthful position. While implants alone can work to restore some lost volume, they likely will not look the way you want because the excess, loose skin is still there and the nipple will be in too low a position.

A small number of women are able to adequately address minimal sagging with implants alone. If Dr. Pancholi feels like this is a good option for you, he will let you know.

Will I be able to breastfeed after a breast lift with augmentation?

Many women can successfully breastfeed after a breast lift or after getting breast implants. However, it’s probably best to wait until you are finished having children and breastfeeding before choosing this procedure. This is not because of the possible interference with breastfeeding, but because changes in your breasts during pregnancy may cause the skin to stretch out again, diminishing the results of surgery.
