About Augmentation + Lift

When women get older, they may lose fullness in their breasts. Other women develop excess skin in their chest. Some women will experience both changes with sagging, deflated breasts. If you want to increase breast volume while also removing excess skin, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle can perform a breast augmentation with a lift (mastopexy). Breast augmentation with a lift at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center in Raleigh, NC starts by removing loose skin from the breasts and then placing saline or silicone implants to get to your goal size. Breast surgery with a lift and augmentation addresses several features of the breasts, including size, shape, and position to give you younger, perkier-looking breasts. Schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Lyle to go over your specific needs, so he can help you determine if a breast augmentation with a lift is best for your goals.

Ideal Candidates

There are many factors to warrant a breast surgery combining a lift with augmentation. It is a ideal choice if you want to significantly transform your breasts while improving the firmness of your breast skin. You may have developed breast ptosis (sagging) due to aging, significant weight loss, or pregnancy, but may also want to increase the volume of your breasts — both can be addressed with an augmentation and lift combined. Dr. Lyle 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.

Surgical Technique

Breast augmentation with a lift is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure and you will be sedated with general anesthesia. In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is done first. Any loose skin is eliminated and the soft tissue is tightened. Dr. Lyle will explain breast implant options with you before the surgery so the selected implant can be easily placed. For some patients, the nipple-areola complex will need to be repositioned to match your new breast size and shape.

What to Expect

The recovery timeframe for an augmentation with a lift will vary for every patient, but you should be healed enough to get back to your everyday activities in about a week. However, you should refrain from any exercise or strenuous activity for at least 2 – 6 weeks. There can also be mild to moderate swelling following the procedure that can last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your implants will begin to settle into their final position after several months where then you should be able to enjoy your outcome.
