What is breast Augmentation + Lift?

When women get older, their breast volume can decrease while others may develop loose skin on their chest. Some women will experience both changes with deflated, sagging breasts. If you want to restore breast volume while also removing excess skin, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio Sosa could recommend breast augmentation with a lift (mastopexy). This effective combination of breast surgeries, regularly performed by our team at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery in West Bloomfield, MI, starts by excising loose chest skin and then inserting saline or silicone implants to achieve your desired outcome. Breast surgery with an augmentation and lift corrects several issues, including position, shape, and size to give you perkier, more youthful-looking breasts. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Sosa to talk about your specific goals and needs. He will help you determine if a combination breast augmentation and lift is best for your needs.

Who is a Candidate for BREAST AUGMENTATION + LIFT?

There are many factors that may have you wanting breast surgery combining augmentation and a lift. It is a good option if you would like to dramatically transform your breasts while also improving your skin elasticity. You may have breast sagging due to aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss, thus you want to increase the fullness of your breasts — this is all addressed with a lift and augmentation. Dr. Sosa can usually assess whether a breast lift by itself can achieve your best results, or if both procedures are needed to reach your overall desired look.

What to expect during BREAST AUGMENTATION + LIFT

Breast augmentation with a lift is generally performed as an outpatient procedure where general anesthesia will be administered. Typically, the breast lift is performed first. Any loose skin is cut away, and the surrounding tissue is tightened. Dr. Sosa will discuss breast implant options with you before the surgery so the selected implant can be easily placed. In some cases, the areola and/or nipple will need to be repositioned to better match your new breast size and shape.

How long is recovery after BREAST AUGMENTATION + LIFT?

The time needed for recovery from breast surgery will vary in each patient, but you should be strong enough to resume your day-to-day activities within about a week. But you do need to avoid any exercise or strenuous activity for about 2 – 6 weeks. There may also be moderate swelling following the procedure that can last for three weeks. Your breasts will begin to settle into their new position in a few months where then you should be able to enjoy your beautiful results.

Breast Augmentation + Lift FAQ

How much does breast augmentation with a lift cost?
The cost of a breast augmentation with a lift will be determined by multiple factors, particularly whether you choose implants (silicone or saline) or a fat transfer. In addition, some lift procedures have more complexity depending on the surgical case. In your initial consultation, Dr. Sosa will create a unique surgical plan with cost estimates. Bloomfield Plastic Surgery takes many payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing.

Will a breast augmentation with a lift correct sagging?
A good reason to get a breast augmentation with a lift is that it increases the volume of your chest while also addressing sag by eliminating excess skin. The breast lift will also raise your natural breast tissue so the results are firm and perky. This is crucial because adding volume to breasts with mild sagging may lead to a less-than-ideal outcome if a lift isn't done to address the sag. To address sagging, a lift should be performed, and then a fat transfer or implants can be done. In your initial consultation with Dr. Sosa, he will listen to your concerns and wants before performing a physical exam of your chest. Following this, he will be able to give you his suggestion on whether your goals require a lift, implants, or a combination of both.

Which incision is best for my surgery?
Incision patterns for breast surgery have become more advanced, with new techniques being developed to help minimize the visibility of scars. The surgical incision that is best for you will depend on the severity of sag and the type of implants being used. To correct severe breast sag, an anchor-shaped incision pattern is most effective. When developing your treatment plan for your breast augmentation with a lift, Dr. Sosa will go over incision patterns and which fits your needs. No matter what method is selected, Dr. Sosa will make incisions carefully for natural-looking results.

How long will my results last?
If you don't have massive weight fluctuations or get pregnant, the results from breast surgery should last many years. While both silicone and saline implants can last for many years, they do need to be assessed regularly to check their condition. During surgery, Dr. Sosa sets the implants using a technique that minimizes future breast sag. This helps your results last for longer. It's important to know that while a breast augmentation with a lift will offer amazing results, the natural aging process still occurs. In time, you might begin to notice sagging and loose skin again, which can be addressed with a second surgery.

How bad is the scarring?
Dr. Sosa performs breast surgery — so all incisions are thin and small. He does his best to make incisions where they are easily concealed, such as in the breast folds or along the border of the areola. If you properly care for them, the scars from your breast augmentation with a lift will, in time, fade so they blend more with your natural skin. Dr. Sosa or someone on his team will discuss scar care management instructions you should follow after your surgery to help your scars heal flat and smooth.

Can I breastfeed after a breast augmentation with a lift?
Breastfeeding after a breast augmentation with a lift is a common concern for many women. The ability to breastfeed post-surgery largely depends on the specifics of the procedure, such as the placement of incisions and implants. In most cases, these surgeries are designed to preserve the milk ducts and nipples, maintaining the potential for breastfeeding. However, it's important to discuss your future family plans with Dr. Sosa during your consultation, so he can tailor the surgical approach to align with your breastfeeding goals.
