Intended Results from Breast Lift with Breast Implants Surgery in Philadelphia
Breast lift surgery with breast implants can achieve larger, fuller breasts, as well as an elevated, more youthful breast contour. Nipple-areolar complexes can be repositioned to the desired size and at the correct height.
Dr. Brandow, a certified cosmetic surgeon, will perform the procedure on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia. The design of the incisions can vary but usually include incisions around the nipple areolar complex and in the crease under the breast. The nipple-areolar complex is repositioned higher, the excess skin is removed, and the breast is reshaped in a pleasing contour and in a more normal position. Your breast implant is then inserted beneath the breast tissue and, if necessary, beneath the underlying muscle. You and Dr. Brandow will discuss insertion options before the surgery. Breast implants are available in numerous sizes and shapes to best complement your body type. Dr. Brandow uses saline breast implants when performing combination breast enhancement to ensure patient safety.

Light activities may be started in 7-10 days.
