Breast Augmentation with Lift
Get Back the Breasts of Your Youth!
Are you embarrassed by breasts that are saggy and deflated-looking? Now you can have the added volume of breast implants along with a youthful lift in the combination breast augmentation and lift procedure. This procedure is ideal for women who not only want to lift their breasts to a higher position on their chest, but also want to add volume to their breasts through implants, giving them both a rounded and perky look. And since this is a combination of two procedures performed at once, there is no additional downtime — you get to enjoy the results of both procedures without the additional downtime of a second procedure!

The Two-in-One Breast Augmentation with Lift Procedure
The breast augmentation with lift combined procedure is an outpatient procedure that typically takes between two to four hours to complete. To ensure your maximum comfort, you will be placed under general anesthesia for the entire procedure. Anticipate being at the center for 6-8 hours that day. The surgery itself is very safe. The biggest risk is smoking, unfortunately we cannot perform a breast lift on someone who is actively smoking as the risk of problems is significant if you are smoking.
The surgeon will first make a breast lift incision, whether “donut-shaped” (around the outer edge of the areola), “lollipop-shaped” (around the areola and vertically down the front of the breast) or “anchor-shaped” (around the areola’s edge and vertically down the breast with a horizontal incision along the breast crease).
Types of Breast Lift Incisions
Excess breast tissue and skin that contribute to sagging will be removed, and the remaining breast tissue will be reshaped, after which breast implants will be placed, either under or over the chest muscle. (The choice of implant placement, as well as choice of saline, silicone or form-stable silicone implants, will be discussed in your initial consultation.) The incisions will then be closed with sutures. These sutures typically dissolve and do not need to be removed.

Two Procedures, One Recovery: What to Expect
At the end of the procedure, the surgeon will place you in a soft surgical bra. You will need to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the next 48-72 hours. Your breasts will be sore and you will have some swelling and bruising near the surgical which will go away after the first few days. The doctor will prescribe pain medication to help you with any discomfort. Most women describe the pain much as if they had worked out really hard and their muscles are sore.
It is important to walk around as soon as the first day after surgery, in order to help with circulation to aid the healing process. Light movements are recommended, though you should refrain from lifting anything over 10lbs and refrain from exercise. You will be able to return to a sedentary job after five to seven days, and after 10-14 days for a more physically demanding job.
Your surgeon will also start you on a scar management program so that the scars from the breast lift portion of the procedures. The sacr will fade over time but keep in mind it takes up to a full year for it to fade and the final result is based on your individual skin type and scarring history. Regardless of your skin type, we will start you on a scar management program approximately two weeks after surgery.
The best part of the breast augmentation with lift recovery process is that you get the benefits of both procedures without having to go through the recovery process twice! Keep in mind, there are some increased risk to combining these procedures so discuss the procedure with your surgeon to make sure youa re a good candidate to combine these procedures.
