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.

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.
