Combination Breast implant plus Breast lift in Los Angeles with Dr. Karamanoukian; Los Angeles Breast Implants

Women of childbearing age who have been pregnant know that the body changes after childbirth, often requiring cosmetic surgical enhancement with a Mommy Makeover. During consultation for a Mommy Makeover, I usually address several issues that are important for women, including breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and labiaplasty. 


In this article, I would like to discuss the options for breast enhancement during a Mommy Makeover.  The decision becomes whether a women requires a breast lift, a breast implant, or a combination breast lift with breast implant.  Each of these surgeries is recommended for different reasons.  A breast implant alone is recommended for women who have perky breasts but a loss of breast fullness; while a breast lift is recommended for women who have full breasts wihtout breast perkiness.


A combination breast lift plus breast implant is performed for those who have lost their breast fullness and who have simultaneously developed droopiness of the breasts. I routinely perform single stage breast implant with breast lift for those patients who want to improve fullness and who need a repositioning of their nipple and areola.


Schedule a consultation today to discuss your options for Mommy Makeover surgery or Breast implant surgery in our Los Angeles plastic surgery office.

Interested in a non-surgical treatment for breast lift scars?

 

A breast lift or mastopexy can be performed using many techniques including a short scar technique or the traditional breast lift operation.  The patients who have undergone a traditional breast lift procedure may have noticeable scars that are either hyperpigmented or widened.  These picked or widened scars can be improved using a combination treatment program developed by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian which incorporates IIT, intralesional injections, or surgical scar revision.

 

Many of these approaches can improve the overall quality and shape of the breast scars including scars around the areola and also scars along the inframammary fold.  Breast lift scars can be dramatically improved with a simple outpatient technique which improves the overall quality and texture of a breast lift scar.
