Benefits of Breast Lift With Augmentation
Achieve Optimal Results
Because these techniques improve the position, volume, and shape of the breasts simultaneously, you can achieve the optimal breast aesthetic. Combining both procedures will allow you to get the best results from your surgery so that you can enjoy the breasts of your dreams.
Enhance Your Physique
Combining both procedures will beautifully accentuate your figure and make your breasts appear fuller and perkier. By removing excess skin, lifting the breast tissue, and increasing breast volume, breast lift with augmentation can create a youthful, shapely breast contour.
Improve Your Self-esteem
Whether you have sagging, asymmetrical, or small breasts, undergoing a breast lift with augmentation can help you reach your cosmetic goals. These procedures will make you look and feel younger, give you more clothing options, and boost your self-confidence.
Breast Implant Type
Silicone Implants: These implants are considered to look and feel the most natural. The cohesive filler in silicone implants also minimizes surface irregularities, such as rippling. However, silicone implants do come pre-filled, and their volume cannot be adjusted in the operating room.
Breast Implant Type
Saline Implants: These breast implants are filled with a sterile saline solution and have a slightly higher likelihood of visible rippling. They can be adjusted in size during surgery to provide more customized sizing and can be placed through smaller incisions.
Breast lift with augmentation is considered a relatively complicated surgery because to add volume to the breast the skin envelope of the breast has to be adjusted simultaneously. During your procedure, incisions will be created around and below the areolas to remove excess skin. This will result in a “lollipop” scar, through which implants are placed and positioned beneath the pectoral (chest) muscle.
Following your procedure, you will be given a compression garment or surgical bra to help support your newly enhanced breasts. Swelling and bruising will occur, but these side effects should resolve after a few weeks. You must refrain from all strenuous activities for at least three weeks or until your incisions have fully healed. However, taking short walks as soon as you are able to can help prevent blood clots. Most patients can return to work one to two weeks after surgery.
As with most breast procedures, breast lift with augmentation can leave permanent scars on the breast. Fortunately, these scars tend to fade away with time as they mature and lose their color.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my results last?
Breast lift with augmentation is known to produce long-lasting to permanent results. However, subsequent pregnancies, breastfeeding, aging, and weight fluctuations can alter the outcome of your procedure.
What are the risks associated with a breast lift with augmentation procedure?
Because breast lift with augmentation is a comprehensive and complex breast surgery, some potential risks include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, and changes in sensation.
What type of anesthesia will be used during my augmentation mastopexy procedure?
Breast lift with augmentation is usually performed using general anesthesia.
Who is a candidate for a breast lift with an augmentation procedure?
A good candidate for both a breast lift procedure and breast augmentation procedure is in generally good health and has maintained a stable weight. Ideal candidates are women who feel emotional or physical discomfort from their deflated, sagging breasts.
A breast lift with a breast augmentation is suitable for women whose nipples fall under the breast crease when their breasts are unsupported. In addition to the nipples pointing downward, the areolas may be enlarged. This combination procedure is ideal for women with asymmetrical or pendulous breasts.
What plastic surgery can be combined with a breast lift and breast augmentation?
While a breast lift with augmentation overhauls and transforms the breast area, some women wish to improve other areas as well. For example, a breast lift with a breast augmentation is often included in a Mommy Makeover. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of breast and body procedures designed to restore and refine many areas of the body after childbirth.
Another combination choice for breast augmentation and breast lift is liposuction. Liposuction slims and contours specific areas of the body by eliminating excess fat deposits. For instance, liposuction in the arm and chest area can accentuate the lift and augmentation received from these breast procedures.
Are silicone or saline implants better?
There are pros and cons to silicone and saline implants. Therefore, there is no clear favorite among patients and plastic surgeons alike. The best option between silicone and saline implants is individually determined by your personal needs. During your consultation, Dr. Andreasen will help you outline your aesthetic goals and select the appropriate implant based on these goals.
How should I prepare for a breast lift with augmentation?
To prepare for breast enhancement surgery, patients are instructed to quit smoking and taking blood-thinning medications or supplements. Patients taking such medications may be asked to adjust their usage.
Make sure that you have prepared for after the surgery as well. This includes scheduling time to take off from work and securing a ride to and from the hospital as your body heals.
