What is breast augmentation with lift?

Breast augmentation, an enhancement procedure, may be strategically combined with a breast lift to achieve rejuvenated, fuller breasts, a tighter, lifted skin envelope and more optimally positioned nipples. Breast augmentation with lift may also help treat congenital breast asymmetry. Dr. Shermak uses saline or silicone breast implants depending on patient choice, in a broad range of sizes and textures. The lift improves perkiness and the implant improves the cleavage.

Who is a good candidate for a Baltimore breast augmentation with lift procedure?

Good candidates for breast augmentation with lift are women in good mental and physical health who have breasts that have lost their fullness and shape from pregnancy or significant weight loss, or who have congenital breast ptosis, or sagging. Clients should have realistic ideals for their outcome, hoping for improvement rather than perfection. Dr. Shermak will review surgical incisions and postoperative photos of women who have undergone this procedure so her patients are fully informed and expectations are set.

What is the recovery like for breast augmentation with lift?

Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. One may experience temporary discomfort, swelling, or numbness. Most women resume regular activities and return to low impact exercise after 1-2 weeks. Heavy lifting is discouraged for at least a month.
