What is Breast Augmentation + Lift?
Did you know that you can have a breast augmentation and a lift? Repositioning the breast higher on the chest wall does not necessarily mean that there will be a substantial amount of breast tissue left for shapely, beautiful breasts. Breast lift surgery with augmentation enhances breast volume while also eliminating loose skin. This is very common in breast surgery performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Naveen Setty, at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics.
Dr. Setty may recommend a breast augmentation in tandem with a breast lift (mastopexy) to improve multiple areas of concern, such as size, shape, symmetry, the appearance of stretch marks, and position to create perkier, more youthful-looking breasts. Make an appointment with Dr. Setty in McKinney, or Dallas, TX to talk about your unique needs and goals one on one, so he can help you decide if a breast augmentation with a lift best suits your needs.
Breast Augmentation + Lift Reviews
"I am so glad I chose Dr. Setty for my breast lift and augmentation. He listened to my requests, studied the pictures I uploaded in my profile, and my breasts are just how I wanted them. They are perfect! Brionna was very attentive on my initial consultation. Jenna was so helpful and very detailed oriented during my pre-op. Dr. Simpson took excellent care of me as the anesthesiologist. Thank you Dr. Setty and staff!"- SM / Office Visit / Jan 11, 2023
"25, 5'3, 155-160lbs, breast lift, 385cc Sientra implants & abdomen lipo - After searching for about a year and a half, I found Dr. Setty on RealSelf! He was the 4th doctor I've spoken with, and after meeting him and his team it just felt right. What I was needing was definitely aligned with all the work I've seen of his, so I knew I was in good hands. :) Some background about me: i'm 25, 5'3ish and 155-160lbs. I have one child born in 2020 - after having him, I've experienced some pretty extreme sagging and loss of volume. I didn't know what exactly I needed, but I expressed my areas of concern and showed some goal images to Dr. Setty and really just let him decide what would suit me best based on all of that. Best decision ever!! He knew what I needed in order to get those results and y'all he knocked it out the park!! We ended up doing a breast lift with implants (385cc sientra implants) and some lipo to the abdomen. Right now, I am 6 days post op. I was surprised to realize the lipo pain initially was way worse than the breast pain. I really had little to no drainage which pleasantly surprised me. I'm pretty bruised on the breasts, and really not bruised on the lipo areas at all. Obviously there is a little swelling but I can definitely see that I'm way more contoured than I was before. Y'all. words can't describe how happy I am with the results!! After surgery, there was never a single moment of regret or wishing I had done anything differently. Obviously, I still need to fully heal, but the whole process has been so perfect so far. His team was so great to me and helped put my mind at ease before and after surgery. I'm starting a fan club 10/10 recommend!!"- M. / RealSelf / Mar 27, 2023
"Everything was wonderful. Thank you for a great surgery"- EM / Office Visit / Aug 18, 2023
"Dr Setty and his staff are amazing. I am now 3 months postop and thrilled with my results. My tummy tuck incision is healing nicely and my breast implants, with a lift, look and feel so real! They have become a part of me and I wish I would have made the decision to have this all done years ago. I believe Dr Setty is the very best at what he does. A miracle worker!!"- KH / Office Visit / Feb 17, 2023
"Dr. Setty is amazing. He made me feel very comfortable about everything that he was going to be doing and called me the day after to make sure I was feeling ok. Cindy was awesome when she greeted me as soon as I walked in the door. I was feeling anxious, and she just talked to us and made me feel very relaxed. Dr. Simpson was so nice and contacted me the night before surgery and discussed his plan and then contacted me the day after to check in and tell me how things went during surgery. I couldn’t have ask for a better surgical experience."- JD / Office Visit / Jun 11, 2023

Am I A Candidate for breast augmentation with a lift?
There are several reasons why you may be wanting breast surgery combining augmentation and a lift. It's a good option if you would like to dramatically rejuvenate your breasts while also improving your skin elasticity. You may have breast sagging caused by aging, significant weight loss, or pregnancy, therefore you would like to enhance the fullness of your breasts — this can all be achieved with a lift and augmentation. Dr. Setty will be able to determine if a lift alone will get your desired outcome, or if both a lift and implants are better to attain your goals.
How does breast augmentation with a lift work?
At the time of consultation, you will try on breast implants that fit your anatomy and you will gain a sense of what your final result may be. One important consideration is that a more conservative breast augmentation is often suggested by Dr. Setty. If you select an implant that is too large, you may experience early complications of breast sagging and loose skin once again.
This combination breast surgery is generally performed at an accredited, state-of-the-art surgical facility as an outpatient procedure unless combined with a tummy tuck. General anesthesia will be administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist, and you may be under for 1 – 3 hours. Dr. Setty will perform the augmentation first, then the excess skin from the breast will be removed around the areola and along the lower central portion of the breast. Incision scars will be of the "lollipop" type around the areola and straight down the breast to the crease under the breast. The areola will be decreased in size and the nipple will be raised in a more perky position. A drain may be placed to prevent fluid collection. All sutures will be absorbable and skin glue will be placed on the incisions. You will be fitted into a surgical bra at the end of the surgery. You will need to wear this bra (or a wireless bra) for six weeks to keep your breast in the proper place for faster healing.
What can I Expect after breast augmentation with a lift?
The time needed for recovery from breast surgery will be different for each patient. You will probably be strong enough to resume your day-to-day activities in about seven days. Exercise and strenuous activities should be avoided for six weeks. There will also be moderate inflammation after your surgery that may last for 4 – 6 weeks or less. Your breasts will settle into their new position in a few months. you will be able to see your stunning results anywhere between six weeks and three months.
Oral pain medications, muscle relaxants, and sometimes antibiotics are given as prescriptions for the post-operative period. You can expect some pain to be experienced for the first week, especially if the implants were placed under the muscle.
