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.
"I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Lyle. I first met Dr. Lyle a month ago during a consultation to have my recalled Allergan Biocell textured implants (installed by a different surgeon) replaced for smooth wall implants. The experience from beginning to end was fantastic. I was greeted warmly, and I love that they offer you a warm robe in the exam room. This is a nice change from the usual paper gowns. Dr. Lyle himself is lovely. He's friendly, knowledgeable, humble and helpful. Fast forward a month later and I woke up to a swollen and painful left breast - this is a big concern with textured implants, so I called his office at 8 am and was told by reception to start making my way in ASAP. I saw Dr. Lyle at 9 am. He examined me and decided I needed an ultrasound and biopsy. He asked his nurse to call around and find me an appointment. By 10 am I was in the capable hands of the Breast Center in Raleigh. My biopsy was sent right to the lab.The next day, Dr. Lyle called me with my results, thankfully everything was negative. This experience was very emotional and stressful for me and Dr. Lyle and his team were incredible. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me - what a tremendous advocate! I am really looking forward to being in Dr. Lyle's capable hands through my breast revision surgery in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Lyle. It is impossible to articulate my gratitude."- A.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

"A+ Blepharoplasty with Dr. Glenn Lyle of RPSC! - Finally, my visual field has been restored after constantly struggling with sagging- hooded eyelids that were impacting my daily life such as: working on the computer with my head tilted backwards to see the screen, forehead fatigue causing aching, my eyelashes pushing down and finally the feeling that I had a "frame of dimness" is completely gone! I can see clearly now and the world is a much..."- B. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2019

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.
