About Augmentation + Lift
When some women get older, they lose breast volume, while others develop loose, excess skin in their chest. Some women experience both changes with deflated breasts that sag. If you want to increase the size of your breast while also removing excess skin, plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee suggests a breast augmentation with a lift (mastopexy). This combination of breast surgeries at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL starts by removing excess skin from the chest and then adding saline or silicone implants to reach your desired breast size. A breast augmentation with a lift improves several issues, including position, shape, and size to give you more youthful, perky breasts. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lee to discuss your specific goals and needs, so he can help you determine if a combination breast augmentation and lift is best for you.
"Absolutely the most kind, caring and patient staff and Dr Lee is amazing. He is so good at what he does. I've had a few procedures done both in office and at surgery center. I'd recommend Dr Lee to anyone who is looking for a board certified plastic surgeon. I'm so thankful to have chosen them!"- A. / Healthgrades / Feb 09, 2019

"Excellent plastic surgeon! Dr. Lee did my augmentation 18 years ago. I was so pleased with the results that I traveled from Boca (where there are tons of plastic surgeons) to Port St. Lucie to have them redone. I’m almost 2 weeks out of surgery and am thrilled with my results! Everyone in the office is super nice and helpful! I highly recommended him!"- K.E. / Google / Jul 12, 2019
"I have to say this is by far the best doctors office I have been too. I went to a different surgeon before Dr. Lee who made me wait three hours after my appointment time and spent very little time with me in general. Every appointment I have had with Dr. Lee has been right on time, especially after the surgery when they did not make me wait in the waiting room at all. His office staff is beyond friendly, helpful, and extremely efficient. My boyfriend and mother who have attended a few visits with me even commented on them without me saying anything first. What is more is when I first spoke to Dr. Lee at our first appointment, I knew I wouldn't want anyone else doing the surgery. He was very informative and answered all my many questions without making me feel like he needed to rush me out of there. This goes for every appointment I have had after with him as well. And finally, I have completed my surgery with Dr. Lee and I honestly cannot express enough how happy I am with my results!!"- J. / Healthgrades / Jul 10, 2019
"I recently had dermal filler injections administered by Dr Lee, himself, and am extremely thrilled with the outcome! He took ample time beforehand to discuss with me my expectations and desired results. Dr. Lee is a perfectionist, extremely experienced and knowledgeable, which ensures safe and successful results. I might add that his nurses and office staff are also wonderful, which created an overall extremely positive experience. If you are considering any kind of facial enhancement, Dr. Lee is the person to go to - you won’t be disappointed. He’s an artist."- J.T. / Healthgrades / Jul 10, 2019
There are many factors that may have you considering breast augmentation combined with a lift. It is a great approach if you desire to fully transform your breasts and improve the elasticity of your skin. You may be experiencing sagging of the breasts due to aging, pregnancy,or significant weight loss, thus you want to increase breast fullness — this is all addressed with a combination breast surgery. Dr. Lee 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 usually performed as an outpatient procedure where you will be placed under general anesthesia. For this procedure, the breast lift is usually the first to be performed. Any loose skin is removed and the tissue beneath is tightened. Dr. Lee will go over breast implant options with you before the surgery so the selected implant can be easily placed. In some instances, the nipple and/or areola will need to be repositioned to fit your new breast size and shape.
What to Expect
Recovery time for this particular procedure will vary from patient to patient, but you should be able to return to your normal activities within about a week. But you will need to abstain from any exercise or strenuous activity for 2 – 6 weeks. There may also be some swelling following the procedure that can last for a few weeks. Breasts will begin to settle into their new, transformed position in about 3 – 6 months where then you should be able to enjoy your beautiful results.
