Aging, gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding… your breasts go through a lot.
All that trauma can leave your breasts feeling and looking a little deflated. For our patients in Beverly Hills, breast lift with augmentation is a popular option to restore the shape and placement of breasts (with a little something extra for volume!). At the Plastic Surgery Institute, our board certified plastic surgeons are world-renowned breast surgery experts. They will help revitalize your look and restore a sense of confidence that will be front and center wherever you go.
Augmentation mastopexy, or breast lift with augmentation, is a combination of two of the most popular breast surgeries: breast lift and breast augmentation. These two together add lift and volume to achieve breasts that appear and feel perkier, fuller, and rounder.
The breast lift allows our skilled plastic surgeons to trim away excess skin that causes the breasts to feel saggy and deflated. Our surgeons then either use a fat transfer or breast implant to help add volume while reshaping the breasts. Since the procedures are done at the same time, the results appear more cohesive and the overall recovery time is faster than if they are split up into two separate procedures.
In this dual procedure, augmentation includes either breast implants or a fat transfer to add firmness, volume, and reduce any loss in size through the breast lift. If you opt for the fat transfer option, our surgeons will take the fat from another area of your choosing, purify it, and transfer it to the breasts via injection.
If you decide on implants, the surgeon positions the breast implants in either one of two places: beneath the chest muscles (submuscular) or beneath the breast glands (subglandular). Each has its benefits and limitations, which will be discussed with you in detail during your consultation. You will also get to decide what type of implant you would like to receive. The Plastic Surgery Institute only carries the highest quality implants with the best safety records. During your consultation, you will get to review (and even feel!) the different implant options available to you, so you can make an informed decision on your procedure.
A Truly Personal Procedure
At the Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills, breast lift with augmentation starts with you. You tell us what you want your breasts to look like. From there, we go through the process of selecting exactly what needs to be done to get you there. You will be involved with every decision, from the type of augmentation you want to your comfort level with scarring and where they should be. Our surgeons are very thorough, but here is a brief overview of some of the choices offered at the Plastic Surgery Institute.
Options for Your Breast Lift
Depending on your skin laxity and the degree of ptosis (downward drooping of the nipple), you may have several options regarding the breast lift procedure. If you only want a small correction, you may be able to go with a less invasive lift to reduce scarring. This can be complemented by fat transfer augmentation to further reduce scarring and downtime. If you want more pronounced results, you may want to undergo a full lift with full implants. This will result in more pronounced scars, but also more pronounced results.
Augmentation mastopexy is ideal for patients who:

Your surgery will take between one to three hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure. Your surgeon will make the necessary incisions to lift and reshape your breasts and add your preferred method of volume enhancement. If you elected to have fat transfer in your procedure, the fat will be removed, purified and implanted at the appropriate time. Breast lift with augmentation is an outpatient procedure, so after a short observation period following your surgery, you will be free to have someone drive you home. Make sure you arrange transportation in advance, as you will be unable to drive following your procedure.

You will likely be sore and tender for at least a few days after the procedure. Most patients who have major augmentation and lifts done take two to three weeks off of work to ensure a healthy recovery.
In most cases, patients are considered fully recovered within 6-8 weeks. In most cases, final results will begin to appear within six months of surgery. If you receive implants, they will usually need time to “drop and fluff” and find their final position in your body. Your surgeon will provide you with a detailed recovery guide and timeline to make sure that you know what to expect before, during and after your breast lift with augmentation surgery.
