Breast Implant Overview

Every woman is born with a set of breasts that is unique to their body. However, sometimes nature needs a little help in achieving the right form for each woman’s body type. Breast implant have been around for some decades, but it’s only in the past few years has the breast implant procedure become more popular and easier than ever to get. With multiple options in shapes, sizes and texture, you’ll be sure to find the breast implant that best fit your body.

Breast Lifts Overview

Breast lifts, otherwise known as a maxoplexy, is a common plastic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding breast tissue to reshape and create support for the new contour of the breast.
Over time, a woman’s breasts can change, and often we hear women talk about about their breasts sagging and becoming cumbersome on their body. We hear terms like ‘age-gracefully’, but time, gravity and life sometimes accelerate the process. These life changes are especially hard on the female breasts, as changes in breast shape, size & firmness can result from any number of life events – pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain/loss, aging and heredity. A breast lifts procedure can quickly rejuvenate your figure by creating a profile that is more uplifting and youthful.

Breast Implants Surgery Costs

With each breast implants procedure comes certain questions we hear from clients all the time. Questions such as ‘how much do breast implants cost?’ and ‘what is the recovery time like?’. While each breast implants is unique to the individual, there is a range for normal breast implants. According to, breast implants alone in Virginia Beach can run the range of $3,500 – $9,500, depending on the skill of the surgeon and any additional factors that may be needed for your surgery.

Choosing A Breast Lift With Breast Implant Procedure

A mastopexy with implant procedure by Dr. Alspaugh aims to correct these issues by adding fullness to the breast and changing the nipple location to create a stunning new look that is supple, firm and above all, very natural looking. Often times, a breast lift is paired with implants to help regain lost tissue and restore the breast to its former shape.

Breast Lift With Implant Cost

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, “the average cost of a breast lift with implants ranges from $5,500-$12,500, according to 2018 statistics” from the association. When looking at just a breast lift or breast implant separately, the costs can vary widely, which is the same with the combined procedure, depending on the specific combination of procedures, as well as other costs like anesthesia fees, surgery facility fees, prescriptions and surgeon’s fees.
When choosing a surgeon in Virginia Beach for a breast lift, remember that a choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is just as important as the cost of the surgery, as the quality of the procedure matters greatly.

Breast Lift With Implant Recovery

Breast lift recovery is similar to the recovery associated with the breast implant procedure alone. Most patients can return to day to day activities in about a week. You may have post-surgery instructions to follow, given to you by your doctor. Avoid all heavy lifting during this time and generally give yourself a few weeks to recover before you return to more vigorous activities.

What Affects The Cost Of Breast Implants?

The shape of the female breast can sometimes make the procedure of breast augmentation straightforward but some breast types can make it more complex. These individual factors that will increase complexity include breast droop and developmental varieties of breast shape.

On the low end, saline usually costs less than silicone. Silicone has a much more natural touch and feel. Textured anatomic Implants can potentially cost more, but are becoming less popular.

A new saline implant called the IDEAL implant has been developed to be more natural appearing and feeling as compared it the saline implant. The traditional saline implants are now less popular as a consequence of a texture which has a less natural feel than silicone gel implants. In thinner patient you could feel and sometimes see folds and wrinkles with the old generation saline implant.

  • The IDEAL implant has been in clinical use since 2009 and is FDA approved as are all of the implants discussed in this article.
  • It is filled with saline but has an internal supporting structure that controls the movement of the saline and supports the implant edges reducing folds and wrinkling providing a more natural result.
