breast augmentation after mastopexy

Breast lift procedures can sometimes leave women frustrated with a lack of cleavage and perkiness 3-6 months after the operation.

The results can look quite good initially, but over a relatively short period of time the breasts can stretch, sag, and droop in a way that makes it difficult to create the cleavage that most women were hoping for after investing the time and money in a mastopexy procedure. Breast augmentation can be performed after breast lift surgery to restore the perkiness and cleavage in a more permanent way, and when performed by a plastic surgeon who specializes in breast implants, the procedure can be extremely satisfying with a simple recovery and no additional scarring. A secondary procedure may also give you a chance to have unsightly scars revised, or to even out asymmetric areolas, both of which occur frequently after breast lifts.

If you are not satisfied with the results of your breast lift, consider learning more about breast implants after breast lift surgery. It’s an excellent option for many women who wish their lifted breasts had stayed “lifted” for a longer period of time.

having a massage with breast implantsAhhhhh… there’s nothing like a good massage… just not too soon after breast augmentation surgery.

It’s a good idea to wait at least 6 weeks after your breast augmentation procedure to have a massage that requires you to lay on your stomach for more than a few minutes. The pressure of your bodyweight, plus the extra force that your practitioner uses during the massage, will displace your breasts to the sides and may stretch the implant capsules enough to allow the implants themselves to shift towards the sides more than you might like. This could lead to a widening of the space between your breasts and less cleavage.

Keep reading to learn more about the precautions you can take for massages after breast augmentation, and about other issues related to laying on your stomach when you have breast implants.

IPL treatments for summer sun damage and freckles

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a fantastic way to reduce the number of freckles and sun damage on your skin, so now that fall is officially here, and winter is right around the corner, consider a series of 3-4 treatments to get your skin ready for the next sunshine season.

The woman in the above photo series had two fairly aggressive treatments with the MaxG IPL/OPL system from Palomar, and you can see the amazing difference in the uniformity of her skin tone. The treatments were spaced about 4 weeks apart, and she did elect for a macrodermabrasion treatment in between her IPL sessions to speed up the process of the freckles flaking off. She had several freckles and flat moles that got extremely dark in the summer sun, and that is what prompted her to seek treatment.

The treatments themselves are fairly painless with numbing cream applied to the skin beforehand, and the treated areas will be bright pink for a few hours. The freckles themselves will turn even darker almost instantly after the treatment, and will continue to darken over the following 24-48 hours. This is a sign that the treatment was effective… the light was effectively absorbed by the pigment, and the pigment has changed in response to the light. If you don’t see this darkening, chances are that your treatment was either too weak, that the machine isn’t the best technology, or that your laser specialist didn’t customize the settings properly to your particular skin type.

The dark spots will begin to flake off about 3-4 days after the treatment, and most of the smaller and lighter spots may be completely gone after a week or so. The largest and darkest spots may take a few weeks to fade completely, and the most stubborn of those may need a few separate treatments.

If you have any questions about using IPL for treating freckles and sun damage, please feel free to give us a call or text message at 917-703-7069 or send us a message by clicking here.
