This combination of surgeries is customized at our practice, tailored to your unique condition and anatomy. The breast implant type, implant pocket location, incision approach, and lift technique will be selected to match your body type and aesthetic goals. The breast augmentation with lift treatment is highly personalized at Mangat Plastic Surgery, so it is highly unlikely that two of our patients will ever have the same treatment plan. This custom approach is a key factor in how we achieve such attractive, natural-looking results.

Candidates for breast augmentation with lift

Good candidates for a combination of breast augmentation and lift include women who have:

  • Breasts that appear deflated or flat
  • Changes in breast shape
  • Stretching of the breast skin
  • Breasts low on the chest wall
  • Sagging, overly large, or droopy nipples

To be safe to undergo surgery, you should be in good health, not smoke (or be willing to quit for a few weeks before and after surgery), and understand the procedure, recovery, and scars.

How is a breast augmentation with lift performed?

Your surgery will be customized to match the condition of your breasts, and we may use several advanced techniques to lift and augment your breasts.

Advanced surgical techniques

To develop the treatment best suited to your condition, our surgeons will evaluate your breasts and determine the amount of lifting and whether nipple repositioning is required to achieve an excellent aesthetic. 

The breast lift techniques that we offer include:

  • Crescent lift
  • Doughnut lift
  • Lollipop lift
  • Anchor lift

Where are the incisions?

When undergoing a breast augmentation with lift, the areolar or inframammary incision locations are often selected. The breast lift technique used will determine the breast implant incision location. If you undergo the crescent, doughnut, or lollipop lift technique, the implant will probably be inserted through an incision around the areola. If you need the anchor lift technique, the implant will be placed with an inframammary (in the breast crease) incision.

How are the implants placed in breast augmentation with lift?

The breast implant is either placed above or below the chest muscle. Breast implants placed below the chest muscle look more natural, but implants placed above the chest muscle create more cleavage and have a shorter, more comfortable recovery. The benefits and disadvantages of each placement approach will be discussed with you in your pre-operative consultation.

How is the breast augmentation with lift surgery performed?

The breast augmentation with lift procedure involves the following steps:

  • The incision locations are marked with a surgical pen
  • Anesthesia is administered
  • An antibacterial solution is applied to the breasts
  • The surgical incisions are created
  • The implant pocket is created
  • The implant is placed and positioned within the pocket
  • The excess skin is removed
  • The skin is re-draped over the reshaped breast mound
  • The nipple structure is relocated to a desirable and youthful location, centered on the breast
  • Once both breasts are enhanced, we fine-tune the procedure, checking for any unevenness and adjusting for improved symmetry
  • The incisions are closed
  • Bandages are applied

What to expect: Your recovery

Our patients are often surprised that the recovery is less stressful and uncomfortable than expected.

You will be provided with full aftercare instructions, and we will be closely monitoring your progress and seeing you at several follow-up appointments. We are always available to you for questions or concerns. The general rules for recovery are as follows:

  • Rest for a few days
  • Take a week off of work
  • Take pain medication to reduce discomfort
  • Keep the head elevated for two to three day after surgery
  • Begin massaging the breasts two to three days after surgery
  • Avoid showering until you get approval from our surgeons
  • Wear a soft bra for a month after surgery
  • Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for four to six weeks

Breast augmentation with lift: Life-changing results

The best results of the breast augmentation with lift occur at the three-month mark, but your new breasts will appear rejuvenated, lifted, and youthful much earlier. The enhanced look of your breasts can be life-changing, dramatically improving your confidence in your figure.

Is it safe to undergo a breast augmentation with lift?

Some of the rare occurrences of complications include:

  • Infection
  • Allergic reaction
  • Bleeding
  • Poor healing of the incision
  • Problems with nipple sensation
  • Breast asymmetry
