What is Breast Augmentation with Lift?
As women age, many often lose fullness in their breasts, and others may develop excess skin on their chest. Some women will experience both changes with deflated, sagging breasts. If you would like to increase the size of your breasts while also getting rid of loose skin, plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi can perform a breast augmentation with a lift (mastopexy). This combination of breast surgeries at Hakimi Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA begins by removing loose skin on the chest and then places silicone or saline implants to get you to your goal size. Breast augmentation with a lift corrects several concerns, such as shape, size, and position to create more youthful, perky breasts. If you are in Newport Beach, the Valley, Beverly Hills, or the surrounding areas, schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Hakimi to talk about your unique desires. Together, we can decide if a breast surgery with a lift and augmentation is best for you.

Can I Get Breast Augmentation with A Lift?
There are many reasons why you may be considering breast augmentation combined with a lift. You may have breast ptosis (sagging) due to natural aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss, thus you want to increase breast fullness. This is a good option if you desire to fully rejuvenate your breasts while also improving the elasticity of your skin. Dr. Hakimi will be able to assess if a lift by itself can achieve your desired outcome, or if both a lift and implants are better to attain your overall desired look.
How Does Breast Augmentation with a Lift Work?
Breast enhancement with a lift is generally performed at our Newport Beach, CA office as an outpatient procedure where you will be sedated with general anesthesia. In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is done first. We will cut the excess skin away and smooth the soft tissue. Dr. Hakimi will discuss breast implant options before your surgery so your implants will be ready for placement. In certain cases, the nipple-areola complex may be moved to fit your new breast size and shape. You will likely be able to resume your everyday activities in about 3 to 5 days, and exercise and strenuous activity after 2 – 6 weeks. You may experience moderate inflammation following your procedure that could last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your breasts will begin to settle into their new position in a few months when you will be able to enjoy your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does breast augmentation with a lift cost?
Your cost for breast augmentation with a lift will vary, depending on multiple factors, including whether you want implants (saline or silicone) or a fat transfer. In addition, some lift procedures have more complexity, depending on the surgical case. During your consultation, Dr. Hakimi will create a personalized treatment plan with cost estimates. We accept many payment methods, including low-interest financing.
How long will my results last?
As long as you do not have massive weight changes or become pregnant, your results from breast surgery should last for a long time. Both saline and silicone implants can last for many years; however, they should be examined every few years to check for issues. During surgery, Dr. Hakimi sets your implants with a method that reduces breast sagging, helping your results last longer. It is important to know that while cosmetic breast surgery can offer a great result, the natural aging process will continue so over time, you might start to notice loose skin and sagging again, which can be corrected with another procedure.
