About Augmentation + Lift
As many women age, they lose fullness in their breasts while other women begin to notice excess breast skin. Some women will have both problems that lead to sagging, deflated breasts. If you would like to increase breast volume while also eliminating loose skin, plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters can perform a breast augmentation surgery plus a breast lift (mastopexy). This procedure at Walters Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA begins by removing loose skin from the breasts and then placing silicone or saline implants or using a fat transfer method to get to your goal size. Breast surgery with a lift and augmentation addresses multiple concerns, such as shape, size, and position to create younger, perkier-looking breasts. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Walters to go over your unique concerns and desires as well as view a simulation of your potential results with the Vectra 3D so he can help you decide if a breast surgery with a lift and augmentation best fits your needs.

There are several reasons why you may be looking into breast surgery combining a lift with augmentation. It's an ideal choice if you want to significantly rejuvenate your breasts while improving the firmness of your breast skin. You may have developed breast ptosis (sagging) caused by significant weight loss, aging, or pregnancy; therefore, you would like to enhance the volume and shape of your breasts — this can all be achieved with an augmentation and lift. Dr. Walters will be able to determine if a lift and fat transfer will get your desired outcome or if both a lift and implants are better to attain your goals.
A combination breast surgery is commonly done at an accredited surgical facility as an outpatient procedure where you will be sedated with general anesthesia. In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is done after a temporary sizer is placed or after the breasts are injected with fat. The excess skin is eliminated and the soft tissue is smoothed. Dr. Walters will explain the options available for breast implants or fat transfer before your surgery.
What to Expect
The recovery timeframe for an augmentation with a lift will be different for every patient; however, you will probably be well enough to get back to your everyday activities in about seven days. You should refrain from exercise and strenuous activities for at least 4 weeks. There will also be mild to moderate inflammation after your surgery that may last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your implants will settle into their final position after several months where at that time you will be able to see your results.
