What is a Breast Lift + Augmentation?

A breast lift with implants is a comprehensive surgical procedure that addresses multiple aesthetic concerns. It is a combination of mammoplasty that augments the size of the breasts and mastopexy that elevates them. While silicone or saline implants can provide you with more fullness, volume, and symmetry, a breast lift may be necessary to tighten loose skin and reduce sagginess.

During a breast lift with augmentation, Dr. Henderson removes excess skin to reshape the breasts and either inserts implants or injects fat that has been extracted from other areas of the body by liposuction, to increase the volume of the mammary gland.

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting a breast lift with augmentation in New York City is to schedule your consultation with double-board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Peter Henderson. During your consultation, Dr. Henderson will discuss your medical history to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure. He will ask you about your goals, expectations, and concerns. Finally, he will examine your breasts to suggest the best incision sites as well as techniques for you.

You can discuss how much of a lift you want, as well as if you’d like a fat transfer augmentation or a breast implant for the augmentation part of the procedure. If you choose to get breast implants, he will show you an implant sizer to decide how big you want your breasts to be. Remember, bigger is not always better when it comes to aesthetic proportions of one’s body.

If you and Dr. Henderson both feel that this combination of procedures is the best solution for your aesthetic needs he will recommend a surgical plan. Our patient coordinator will then book the surgery at a time convenient for you and provide you with pre and post-operative instructions.

What to Expect on the Day of Breast Lift + Augmentation Surgery

On the day of your breast lift with augmentation surgery at Henderson Breast Reconstruction, Dr. Peter Henderson and his staff will welcome you, making sure you are comfortable. They will go over your surgical plan once more in case of any last-minute questions and/or concerns. Finally, an anesthetist will place you under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

During this cosmetic procedure, for the breast lift part of the surgery, excess skin and fat are removed from the breast. The nipple and areola are moved to a more youthful, natural position, or resized if needed. 

To learn more in detail about the breast lift procedure, please refer to the relevant page. 

To augment the breast, Dr. Henderson will either insert implants or perform liposuction on target areas of your body depending on what you decided during your consultation. For more information on breast augmentation and/or fat transfer breast augmentation procedures, please refer to those pages. 

Once he is done, he will suture the incisions trying to minimize scarring.

The combined procedure usually takes anywhere from two to four hours depending on any complications. Fat transfer augmentation takes longer as you have to account for the liposuction aspect of it.

Breast Lift + Augmentation Recovery

Once your surgery is complete, you will be closely monitored in a recovery area until sedation wears off. Once discharged, you will need a family member or friend to drive you home, and potentially stay with you for the first day or so to help you with your daily routine.

As expected, you will have minor swelling, bruising, and pain but you will be given pain medication and a compression garment to manage these effects. It is essential that you wear this special support bra to help minimize swelling during your initial recovery. For the first 24 hours post-procedure, you should focus on resting; we recommend taking it slow for the first few days and arranging time off work to allow for healing. You will be able to use your prescribed medications to ease the discomfort. 

After about 1 week has passed, Dr. Henderson will remove your dressings and provide you with instructions on how to wear your surgical garment. At this time, most patients feel comfortable enough to go back to work if they have a sedentary job.
