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 Dr. Jules Walters 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.
Breast Augmentation + Lift Reviews
"Scheduled! - I called this morning and scheduled my appointment. I’m extremely confident with the surgeon I’ve chosen. He has went above and beyond to put all my worries at ease. He has done 2 consultations with me, both being free. He spent so much time answering every concern my husband, mom and myself had (along with my 13 month old running around.) He’s such a great listener and put my words of what I was wanting into an image for me. With my weight loss, 2 kids, and breastfeeding, the skin on my breast is very thin. He explained that the size implants I was wanting (500cc-550cc) was not the best choice. That later on they would sag and eventually be unhappy with my results and need a revision. I’ve seen other ps and none of them explained this to me. I’m just great-full that I found him and he cares so much about his work and looks at the long term outcome. Honesty is key! And I love that he gives his honest professional opinion.Getting: Breast augmentation with lift, extended tummy tuck, lipo with fat transfer to the lateral butt on Friday, June 21st"- C. / RealSelf / May 15, 2019
"I’ve been looking now for about a year for a ps who would understand my needs. I finally made an appointment with 2 different ps in my area. Both had different things to say about my breast and tummy area( legs and arms also but for a different time.) I think I have made a decision. I also made a second consultation visit to talk more about what to expect. I had the sleeve surgery in 2015 and lost 100lbs. I’m also a mom of 2 witch have both been breastfed, needless to say that my body has been through a lot and is not very appealing to the eye. My skin and saggy breast are causing me to be depressed and really not wanting to do anything anymore. I don’t wear cute cloths anymore I don’t even attempt to dress sexy. For months I’ve been wearing sweatshirts and sweatpants. I dread getting a shower or being intimate with my husband. Just thinking I have to get naked especially in front of my husband or just looking in the mirror makes tears fall. I just want to feel happy in my skin again and get back to loving myself and have more convenience.Updated on 28 Jun 2019:I had my surgery on Friday June 21. Yesterday was the first day I got to see my stomach, and it looks AMAZING. I’m still very swollen but my surgeon is hands down the best. I couldn’t be more happy. My breast look perfect and my booty is round. I can’t wait until all my swelling is gone and see how I look!"- C. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2019
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.
