Breast Augmentation With Lift

A breast augmentation with a mastopexy (lift) is a cosmetic breast surgery performed under general anesthesia that addresses excess skin, sagging breast tissue, a lack of fullness – particularly in the upper portion and breast cleavage – and improves the feel of the breast. The result are breasts that are ideally shaped with a soft natural bottom curve and fullness at the top creating a cleavage that is feminine and tasteful. It is common to combine this surgery with others such as an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) and Liposuction. Performing a Breast Augmentation in conjunction with another can be performed safely and efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions

A breast lift with implants combines two surgeries into one. A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, is when a plastic surgeon lifts and reshapes the skin and tissue of the breasts to give them a more lifted and round appearance. With implants or breast augmentation, the breast is enlarged by placing silicone or saline implants into the breast. In a combined procedure, not only are the breasts lifted, but also enlarged.

As women get older, breasts lose their elasticity. This can cause them to sag or droop, especially if they’ve gained or lost weight. A breast lift raises the breasts and reshapes them to be rounder. In breast augmentation, or when you get implants, an implant is surgically placed behind each of your breasts. The implants are either behind the chest muscles or behind your breast tissue. Implants alone won’t usually lift your breasts if they are sagging.

Together, a breast lift with implants will both lift your breasts, reshape them to make them rounder, and increase your cup size.

The procedure can vary, depending on the size and shape of your breasts, how much lift you might need, and your implants. Prior to surgery, a full medical history will be taken and patient education will be discussed: the risks of the surgery, what you should and should not do before and after the procedure, and when to call the doctor.

There are many different kinds of breast lift techniques, but the one that is chosen will be based on your physical exam and goals of surgery. Generally, the procedure involves the following:

The surgeon will assess and mark you while you’re standing, to see the lifted position of the nipple on the breast.
• You will be given general anesthesia.
• The surgeon will make an incision around the areola, extending down the front of the breast.
• Your breasts will be lifted and reshaped, and the implant will be placed.
• If necessary, your areolas will be moved to the correct position on your breasts.
• Incisions will be closed with stitches or surgical tape.

After your surgery, you will be groggy and tired due to the anesthesia. You may have to wear an elastic bandage or special support bra to support your breasts and help with healing. A drain may be placed under the skin to help with excess blood or fluid, and you will be given pain medication. You will also be given instructions to follow after surgery, including:

• how to care for your breasts and when to shower
• medications to apply or take
• any specific things you should look for along the incisions or with healing
• which activities to avoid
• when to come back for your post-op visit(s)

It’s important to note that, since every woman’s body is unique, there is no exact timeline for recovery. However, most surgeons agree that a full recovery can take on average six weeks or so, and women may notice that they feel perfectly fine after about a week.

In preparation for surgery, you might have to do several things, including:

• get lab testing or a medical evaluation
• take certain medications or adjust your current ones
• get a baseline mammogram prior to surgery and after surgery to help find any changes in the breast tissue in the future
• quit smoking
• refrain from taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or any supplements, since these may increase bleeding
• make arrabgements for someone to drive you to and from the surgery, and to stay with you overnight for the first night or longer.

You will also be asked about your goals regarding breast size and fullness, and any concerns you might have about this. A complete medical history will be taken, including any family or personal history of breast cancer, and whether you want to breastfeed in the future.

Before your surgery, ask your surgeon about any specific questions you might have about recovery, healing, activities you can and cannot do, when you can return to work, and what to expect.

"I recently had a revision mastopexy with augmentation (breast lift/implants) and a medial thigh lift with liposuction, and I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin. Receiving a kudos from a patient is always a good sign, but I am also a surgical nurse. One can trust the opinion of a surgical nurse or a surgical technician because we are the pickiest, most judgmental healthcare workers out there! What is particularly noteworthy is the surgeons’ focus on preventing surgical site infections. They insist on a sterile prep of both arms as well as the chest – something not all surgeons do but should. As the surgeons work together, my surgery was finished much faster than I thought; I scoffed when they said it would take 4 hours, but they finished 30 minutes earlier than planned." HEATHER M. Austin, TX
"Dr. Cone and his staff, Lindsay, Brandy, and Rachel are all amazing! They worked with me and my crazy schedule and made my breast augmentation possible! Dr. Cone is a perfectionist and an artist professionally and privately (he does work-working, huge plus for me). It is very important to me that a surgeon is meticulous, with a high attention to detail and possesses great bedside manners. They also have a great sense of humor. I can’t be anymore ecstatic with the results! His entire team is phenomenal, a total package! Thank you Dr. Cone and team!" LL.T Austin, TX
