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 Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics 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.
"I can’t recommend Dr.Lyle enough. My experience with him was just amazing. I first found him and felt after reading the reviews and his history (particularly his past of being a plastic surgeon for the U.S Army) he was the one I needed to consult with. He was so honest and when I broke down crying with emotions I didn’t feel judged. His staff was always available for me to call or email. He was very particular with results and doesn’t go overboard with his work (for example those funny looking tummy tucks that are pulled way too tight or weird looking bellybuttons) he does amazing work. He is very clean and I just can’t express how grateful I am to him for this life changing experience as a mom. He even gave a nurse discount. Do the consult. Go meet Dr.Lyle. Did I mention he’s a little bit of a hype man? I went to a follow up and he said “LOOK AT YOU!!!” Hahaha. Thank you so much Dr.Lyle"- N.H. / Google / Apr 07, 2023

Ignore her and all the other front desk girls are really lovely!"- K.F. / Google / Feb 25, 2023
"I highly recommend Dr. Lyle. He takes his time, listens to your questions and concerns, and is honest with feedback regarding expectations and results. When I had a concern after my procedure, he was responsive immediately via email and even got me in to see him first thing the next morning to check everything out just to be in the safe side. He treats his patients like people, not numbers/dollar signs, and I would go back to him in a heartbeat for any future needs. I 100% recommend him!"- J.S. / Google / Jan 31, 2023
"in looking for a cosmetic surgeon, I asked for recommendations from several well respected area physicians in different specialties. I asked them who they would send their spouses to for cosmetic surgery. 3 of 4 said the first choice would be Dr. Glenn Lyle. the 4th one said Dr. Lyle second, behind his sister in law. He is straightforward and honest about options. clear about surgical expectations, and very focused on the safety of one’s overall health before even considering a procedure. His gift is delivering extremely natural looking results in a safe and well planned manner."- K.K. / Yelp / Jan 27, 2023

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.
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.
