How Long Do Breast Surgery Results Last?

We often hear some variation of the question, “How long do breast enhancement results last?”—especially from patients considering specific breast surgeries, such as enhancement via breast fat injection. Many are also curious about “breast aug,” before and after details, such as breast augmentation recovery, breast augmentation scars, and breast augmentation post-op instructions.

The duration of enhancement results varies depending on the procedure and individual factors. Breast implants used for breast augmentation are designed to last for a long time, but, they are not considered to be “lifetime” devices and may need to be replaced if complications occur.

The lifespan of a breast lift—which does not add volume, but elevates sagging breasts—will vary depending on the individual, with specifics depending on future weight gain or loss, skin health, and other factors.

Whether you’re looking up, “Breast augmentation near me” or are calling with specific questions about implants or lifting techniques, our team can explain more about breast lift before and after details to achieve the most natural breast augmentation results, the benefits of a combined breast augmentation with lift surgery, how much breast implants may cost (and what goes into breast enhancement cost), what to know about workouts after breast augmentation, and more.

Breast Enhancement: How Does Breast Augmentation Compare to a Breast Lift?

Breast augmentation and breast lift are two distinct cosmetic procedures for breast enhancement, but they serve different purposes. Breast augmentation is a breast enhancement surgery that involves the insertion of implants to increase breast size or improve shape. It may also involve the introduction of fat taken from elsewhere on the body to add volume. Enhancement techniques are ideal for those seeking fuller breasts or restoring volume lost due to factors like pregnancy or weight loss. Keep in mind, however, that his procedure doesn’t significantly address sagging or drooping breasts.

Abreast lift, or mastopexy, is a form of breast enhancement designed to lift and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple-areola complex. It doesn’t change the size of the breasts, but it can provide a more youthful and perky appearance, as well as improve symmetry.

Will Breast Enhancement Leave Scars?

When it comes to breast enhancement recovery, one thing patients may be concerned about is how they can manage breast enlargement scars—and what those scars may look like. With any cosmetic surgery that involves incisions, there will be scars. That said, there are ways to make these scars look less pronounced.

The locations of any scars will be determined by the placement of the incisions, but they are often positioned in easily concealed areas. It can take up to 18 months for the scars to heal—long after any swelling recedes—and sometimes they can look worse before they look better. We will provide you with aftercare instructions in order to minimize any visible signs of the surgery.

Beyond Breast Enhancement: Other Types of Cosmetic Body Surgeries

Cosmetic Surgery Institute provides many types of cosmetic procedures for enhancing body shape and contours in addition to breast enhancement operations like breast augmentation and breast lift. Unlike breast enhancement, a tummy tuck is focused on providing a flatter, smoother and more toned midsection by addressing sagging skin, excess fat, and weakened muscles. A Brazilian butt lift enhances the buttocks by adding volume to the buttocks via fat transfer. Liposuction can reduce pockets of stubborn fat on isolated areas. Any of these may be combined to create proportional and enhanced body contours. The choice is up to you!
