Breast Augmentation With Lift

The breast consists of two elements: the skin envelope and the fill volume or "stuffing." At the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeons perform breast augmentation for women from Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo, NY, by increasing their breast size with implants. If there has been a great deal of weight loss or if the skin is very loose as a result of pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, our surgeons can reduce the skin envelope by performing a breast lift, also called mastopexy. In many cases, a breast lift alone provides the desired breast size and shape. If the results of a breast lift would leave the breasts too small for the patient's desires, an augmentation can be done at the same time as the lift.

Should a Breast Lift and Augmentation Be Performed Together?

Many surgeons recommend doing the breast lift and breast augmentation at different times due to the difficulty in controlling all of the variables that are necessary when doing them together. Our plastic surgeons usually recommend doing the procedures at the same time as long as the patient understands that there is a slightly higher chance of needing a revision when the two procedures are done together. Dr. Koenig’s revision rate is about 5% for this combined operation.
