How Is Breast Lift and Augmentation Surgery Performed?
Our highly trained plastic surgeons can place breast implants in combination with a breast lift procedure to create larger, lifted breasts with a more youthful appearance. The surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia.
There are several incision techniques for breast lift and augmentation surgery. Dr. David Kahng will recommend the best surgical approach to achieve optimal results, depending on the amount of excess skin to be removed, existing breast tissue, and the patient’s personal goals.
