Combining a Breast Lift with Implants for More Dramatic Results
Breast ptosis, or sagging, can be caused by a large number of factors. Although a breast lift can effectively correct sagging, the procedure alone is not designed to increase the size of breasts. If you are seeking to experience a fuller, perkier bust, Dr. Brian F. Burns can perform a breast lift with implants at our Victoria, TX, practice.

Good candidates for a breast lift with implants are women who want to increase the shape, symmetry, and volume of their breasts. A large number of patients who undergo this procedure are mothers who are seeking to regain their pre-pregnancy busts. Additionally, this procedure is often used to correct breast sagging and volume loss that occurs as part of the natural aging process. A breast lift with implants can also help to correct stretch marks on the breasts or asymmetrical breasts. When you arrive at our practice for a consultation, Dr. Burns will examine your breasts and discuss your concerns to determine if this treatment can best achieve your goals.
Before undergoing a breast lift with implants, you will first work closely with Dr. Burns to plan your procedure. He will review different incision types and explain what to expect during the procedure and recovery period. Furthermore, he will also help you select the size and type of breast implants to use during your breast lift.
No type of implant is considered the 'best.' Rather, the type that is right for you will depend on your unique goals.
The two main types of breast implants are silicone and saline, and both are available in a range of sizes. Saline implants are inserted empty and then filled with a saltwater solution, which allows for relatively small incisions and an increased level of customization. Silicone implants, conversely, come pre-filled with a thicker silicone gel that is designed to closely mimic the look and feel of natural breast tissue. No type of implant is considered the "best." Rather, the type that is right for you will depend on your unique goals.
Surgery and Recovery
After administering anesthesia to ensure your comfort, we will begin the procedure by creating small incisions into your breasts. Dr. Burns will then carefully place your implants into position. Next, he will remove excess tissue and reshape the breasts for a more perky and youthful look. He can also move the nipple into a more attractive position, if necessary. To complete the procedure, the remaining skin will be tightened and then sutured closed.
During the first week following surgery, you will need to wear a compression bra to help with your recovery. You should avoid bending and lifting for roughly three weeks, and you will need to avoid strenuous activities for roughly one month or longer. You will also undergo follow-up appointments so that Dr. Burns can monitor your recovery.
