Breast Augmentation With Lift

Learn About Breast Augmentation Without a 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.

Women who want a highly trained and experienced breast enhancement specialist and a choice of the latest silicone and saline breast implants choose the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery in Rochester, NY. Request your consultation with one of our plastic surgeons using the online form, or call our office at (585) 244-1000 to schedule an appointment.

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.

Breast Implant Risks

When considering breast surgery, there are many benefits and risks to think about. The following documents are provided by the manufacturers of breast implants for patient education in accordance with the FDA. This information should be reviewed prior to your consultation. Our doctors are up-to-date in their knowledge about the science and safety of breast implants, and they will review these documents with you and answer any and all of your questions at your consultation. Thank you for doing your part to educate yourself before your visit, and we look forward to seeing you at the Quatela Center very soon.
