Breast Lift followed by a Breast Augmentation 9
- Breast Lift / Breast Implants
Two pregnancies left our Seattle area patient with sagging (ptosis) and flattened breasts. This Bellevue mother of two came to see Dr. Stridde in the hopes that he could both lift and add fullness to her deflated breasts. Dr. Stridde recommended both a mastopexy (breast lift) procedure followed by a breast augmentation procedure. For optimal results he performed two separate surgeries 8 weeks apart as lifting and augmentating are two very different procedures and performing them both at the same time is very complex with many potential pitfalls. The operations tend to work against one another. When putting an implant in the tissues are being expanded and the skin is stretched. When doing a lift the tissue is being reduced and the skin tightened, so the one procedure is working in direct opposition to the other. In particular when a significant amount lift is required and much skin is being removed, overall results will usually be much better when the lift and augmentation are performed in stages.
