How Can a Breast Lift With Implants Makeover Your Figure?

Posted May 15, 2018 in Breast Lift

Combined Breast Augmentation by Dr PatronellaAfter pregnancy, weight loss, or the natural effects of gravity, many women experience the downward, sagging progression of their breasts. This sagging is often accompanied by a significant volume loss, turning breasts that used to be full and perky into ones that appear deflated. While breast lift surgery can return breasts to a higher position on the chest, many women find this procedure alone does not provide them with the shapely fullness they desire. That’s why many of Dr. Patronella’s patients opt to combine a breast lift with breast implant augmentation.

Enhance Your Figure and Your Confidence

As a symbol of femininity and sensuality, breasts have always been a source of self-consciousness or confidence for women. Self-confidence has the remarkable ability to not only affect the way you see yourself but also how you present yourself to others; when you feel good about your appearance, you are more outgoing and lively in both social and intimate interactions. This confidence can significantly improve your quality of life.

Combining Procedures With the Delay Fill Technique

Combining your breast lift with implants allows Dr. Patronella to give you a boost in the shape, fullness, and position of your breasts to improve the overall appearance of your frame. Since combining these procedures can be complicated (one technique aims to expand the area, while the other aims to contract it), Dr. Patronella developed the delay fill technique as a way to combine a breast lift with implants with little chance of complications or the need for revision surgery.

The delay fill technique performs a traditional breast lift that includes the insertion of a partially filled saline implant into the breast pocket under the muscle. This implant is filled between 10 and 14 days after the initial surgery and allows for your breast lift to heal without the additional weight of the implant stretching the skin before it is ready. By the time the implant is filled, your skin has already reached a level of contraction that will adequately hold the implant.

If you have struggled with volume loss and sagging of your breasts, combining procedures can enhance your confidence and return a feminine physique. To learn how this procedure can help you, contact Dr. Patronella today by calling 713-799-9999 to set up a consultation.
