During and After Your Breast Lift Surgery in Fort Worth, TX
A combined breast lift and augmentation surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis with general anesthesia. Typical surgery time ranges between 2.0-3.5 hours depending on the extent of sagging and asymmetry between breasts. Most patients can return to non-strenuous work within one week, although activity restrictions last up to 6-8 weeks after surgery.
In some cases, it may be necessary to stage the procedures for optimal patient safety. Examples include patients with very severe sagging such as someone who has had massive weight loss or in someone with multiple previous breast surgeries. In these cases, it is safer to proceed with the lift first, followed by a delayed augmentation 3-6 months later.
It should also be noted that combining a breast lift with implants is a more complicated procedure compared to either procedure alone, and the revision surgery rate is higher as well. Just like in math class, when multiple variables are involved the equation becomes more difficult. The same is true with surgery; when multiple variables (nipple placement, skin looseness, implant size, scar healing, etc.) are involved, the outcome becomes more difficult to control with 100% accuracy.
