After pregnancy, aging, or massive weight loss, the breasts may lose both their volume and their projection, resulting in deflated, drooping contours that cause self-consciousness and distress. Breast augmentation with lift is a combination procedure to increase the bust size while simultaneously correcting breast ptosis. After surgery, the breasts appear rounder and more appealing, and the nipples are repositioned in a more youthful location.

What is a breast augmentation with lift?

Breast augmentation with lift accomplishes two cosmetic goals at once. Firstly, it adds volume and roundness to breasts that have deflated over time with a breast augmentation, and secondly, it corrects breast sagging and low-hanging nipples with a breast lift. By combining two powerful body sculpting techniques, this dual treatment can completely revitalize the upper body, providing you with an increase in wardrobe options and enhanced self-confidence.

How is a breast augmentation with lift performed?

After your anesthesia is administered, the surgeon will create incisions in the locations you have discussed beforehand during your consultation. This is typically within the inframammary creases, the areolas, or the armpits. The breast implants of your choice – saline, silicone, or gummy bears – are then placed within the breast capsule, typically beneath the pectoral muscles. Utilizing the same incisions, the surgeon will remove excess skin to create more elevated, perky breasts that are free from ptosis. The procedure takes about 2 hours to perform.

What are the benefits of breast augmentation with lift?

  • Adds volume and roundness to the chest
  • Creates a more feminine and attractive silhouette
  • Removes excess sagging skin
  • Situates the breasts higher up on the chest wall
  • Repositions the nipples in a more pleasing location
  • Maximizes your wardrobe options
  • Boosts self-image and self-confidence

Who makes an ideal candidate for treatment?

If you are upset about how much your breasts have shrunk and how low they are hanging down, you may be an excellent candidate for this safe, effective body contouring procedure. Breast augmentation with lift can beautifully restore volume and elevation to your bust, reversing the signs of aging and the effects of pregnancy. 

It’s important that all candidates for surgery be healthy, both mentally and physically. They should be non-smokers who are free from any significant medical issues that might interfere with their surgery or its recovery. Lastly, patients should have a realistic, positive outlook regarding their surgical results based on a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Engineer.

What can I expect from my recovery?

After surgery, you will experience swelling, bruising, tenderness, and numbness. These are all normal side effects and can be well controlled with prescription pain medications prescribed by the doctor. You will be fitted with a compression garment, which helps to minimize swelling and keeps your new breast shape from being compromised. 

After about 2 weeks, you may be able to return to work, provided you do not have a physically demanding job. You will need to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for at least 4-6 weeks. As your swelling subsides, you will gradually begin to see your final results: a full, rounded, sculpted chest that is natural-looking yet captivating to the eye.

Will surgery affect my nipple function?

If you are planning to breastfeed in the future, let your surgeon know. There are certain nipple-sparing techniques that can be utilized to protect your milk ducts. After treatment, you may experience some numbness and loss of sensation in the nipples, but these side effects will improve with time.

Is breast augmentation with lift covered by insurance?

Because breast augmentation and mastopexy are considered cosmetic procedures, they are not typically covered by insurance carriers. However, we do offer financing options to help make your dream of a more youthful, feminine bust a reality.

When will I be able to see my results?

You will be able to notice the increase in cup size right away after your surgery. As your swelling disappears, the appearance of your chest will continue to improve, and after about 6 weeks, your true outcome will become apparent.
