Are implants safe?
To date there has been no scientific evidence that implants are unsafe, cause cancer of the breast, or any other disease. Although it is not advisable to protect the aesthetic result, most women can breast feed after augmentation surgery.

Depending on the sagginess of the breasts, the procedure may require different incisions:
1. Around the areola (minimal ptosis)
2. Lollipop (around the areola and vertically)
3. Inverted Anchor (around the areola, vertical and horizontal)
Working through the incisions, excess skin is removed from the bottom portion of the breast. Breast tissue is displaced in a higher position and the nipple placed in the keyhole incision.
Many of the patients undergoing breast lift also want freshness / volume to the look of the breasts, so that the choice of implants also add in the time of surgery.
In the routine reductions, the incision follows around of the areola, continues downward and extends along the crease underneath the breast. The excess tissue is removed and the nipple / areola complex elevated to his new position. In most cases, unless your breasts are very large, the nipples remain attached. Thereby, a loss of sensitivity is avoided.
This procedure allows the surgeon to remove fat, not glandular tissue, and thereby reducing the volume of the chest by a few cup sizes.
What is the recovery of a breast lift or reduction like?
Avoid strenuous activity for 4 weeks. It may be possible to return to work in one or two weeks. Again, Dr. Spera uses dissolvable stitches. Bruising and swelling may take up to six weeks to clear, and may take a year or two for the scars to flatten and fade.
Patients undergoing breast liposuction are encouraged to resume normal activities as soon as you feel up to it. The results of breast reduction surgery are permanent, but breast size may change due to weight gain or pregnancy.
