Although some women choose to have either a breast lift or breast augmentation surgery performed independent of the other procedure, many patients prefer to combine the two treatments to produce more dramatic results. While a breast lift can remove excess tissue to create a more youthful shape, a breast augmentation uses implants to create larger, fuller breasts. This combination can create a dramatically enhanced bust line. Dr. Craig Foster can help you determine if a breast lift with implants at our Manhattan, NY, practice is the appropriate treatment to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Rejuvenating the Breasts
Both a breast lift and a breast augmentation can help improve the appearance of the breasts through cosmetic surgery. However, the combination of a lift with implants can have a greater impact on the final outcome for the right candidates.
Breast Lift: During a breast lift, or mastopexy, Dr. Foster removes excess skin and breast tissue to reshape the breast. This procedure can help restore projection and shape for women whose breasts have begun to sag or lose elasticity as a result of weight loss, breast feeding, or aging. A breast lift can help reshape the breasts and restore firmness, creating a more perky and youthful appearance.
Breast Augmentation: A breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, uses either saline or silicone implants to increase the volume of the breast. These implants are typically placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles to add more volume.
Benefits of Combining Breast Lift with Implants
Many women find that, though both a lift and augmentation can each have a tremendous impact on the appearance of their breasts, the combination of the two helps them achieve the look that they desire. For some patients, a lift alone cannot restore lost volume to their breasts. In addition to helping women enhance their breast size and shape, having the two procedures performed at the same time can help reduce the total recovery time.
Why a Breast Lift with Implants?
Many women notice that their breasts lose volume and elasticity as they get older. This can be attributed to one or more factors, including:
- Weight fluctuations
- The natural aging process
A breast lift with implants can help women reverse these effects by restoring the size and shape of the breasts, while also creating a more youthful appearance.
A breast lift with implants is a popular cosmetic procedure among patients who have sagging or uneven breasts, downward pointing nipples, or stretched areolae. Women who are still planning on becoming pregnant or breast feeding may want to consider delaying the procedure until after they have had children. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to consult with Dr. Foster before undergoing the procedure.
A breast lift with implants can greatly enhance the shape and appearance of your breasts. If you would like to learn more about how this combination procedure can benefit you, contact us to schedule an evaluation.
