Breast Augmentation + Lift: Our Most Popular Pairing

Breast augmentation with a lift is a combination of two popular breast procedures: breast augmentation and breast lift surgery. Patients get the best of both procedures, creating a dramatic transformation for the breasts.

Since pregnancy often leads to a dramatic change in breast appearance, a breast lift with augmentation is one of the most popular additions to our mommy makeover.

In breast augmentation, a surgeon places saline or silicone implants into the breasts to increase their size and shape. Implants come in many sizes, allowing each patient to achieve their desired appearance. Breast implants remain in place until you choose to have them removed, so they can provide long-lasting improvement to the breasts’ size and shape. 

A breast lift is a procedure that corrects breast sagging, one of the most common breast-related complaints. A breast lift repositions the breast tissues to a higher placement on the chest wall and restores a youthful breast shape. This treatment can target skin laxity and shape changes after weight loss or pregnancy.

What to Expect from a Breast Augmentation With Lift in Sarasota

Breast augmentation with a lift is two separate procedures performed at the same time. This procedure typically takes place while you are under general anesthesia and takes approximately three and a half hours to complete. 

Our surgeons typically perform the breast lift portion of this procedure first. They’ll place incisions that allow them to remove and tighten excess skin. Then, they reshape and lift the underlying breast tissues and use sutures to hold them in place. Some patients may receive areola repositioning or resizing. 

Having completed the breast lift, your surgeon will place breast implants over or under the pectoral muscle, depending on your anatomy and desires. 

A breast lift can transform the breasts’ shape, creating exceptional results. Some surgeons prefer to perform the breast lift on its own, then add implants later if the patient still desires a size increase. Many patients are so delighted by their lifted breast shape that they no longer desire augmentation.

Recovery After Breast Augmentation With Lift

Since this procedure combines two separate surgeries, the recovery timeline is a bit longer than a stand-alone lift or augmentation.

Full recovery from a breast augmentation with lift usually takes eight to 10 weeks, but patients can return to work and other activities much sooner than this timeline. After the procedure, you must limit arm and chest movement for 48 hours to allow the tissues to heal properly. 

While patients are fully recovered after eight to 10 weeks, it will likely take longer to see your results. The implants must go through a process called settling. As the skin and tissues stretch to accommodate the implants, the breast will slowly relax into a more natural-looking position. Approximately six months to a year after surgery, the implants should settle and the scarring will fade.

FAQs About Breast Augmentation With Lift in Sarasota, FL

Some scarring is inevitable after this procedure, but our surgeons take steps to minimize its appearance through careful incision placement, advanced suturing techniques, and post-surgical skin care advice. Incisions will fade significantly in the first year after surgery. The placement of your incisions will depend on how much sagging is present. A common breast lift incision pattern includes an incision around the areola, extending downward from the areola to the breast fold, and across the inframammary fold.

A breast lift/augmentation combination is the best way to address ptosis and skin laxity in the breast area. Some patients with minor sagging and good skin tone may achieve excellent results with implants alone, but for most patients, the best results will come from this combination approach that lifts and reshapes the breasts, tightens and removes excess skin, and enhances with an implant.

Breast augmentation with a lift reshapes the breast. For many patients, this reshaping leads to a permanent improvement in the breast shape and position. Natural aging will continue, and factors like weight loss or pregnancy can adversely affect the results. For the longest-lasting results, we recommend waiting to have this surgery until you are at your ideal weight and no longer planning future pregnancies. While breast implants may not last a lifetime, modern implants are durable and often last 15 years or longer.
