About Augmentation + Lift
As women age, they may lose fullness in their breasts while others develop loose skin on their chest. Some women experience both changes, which causes sagging, deflated breasts. If you want to increase your breasts' size while also removing loose skin, our board-certified plastic surgeons may suggest breast augmentation surgery with a lift (mastopexy). This combination of breast surgeries at Forma Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ starts by removing loose chest skin and then placing a breast implant to attain your desired breast size. Breast surgery with a lift and augmentation improves several concerns, including shape, size, and position to create more youthful, perky breasts. Schedule an appointment with our team to go over your unique needs and goals so we can help you determine if breast augmentation with a lift works best for you.
"I am 72 and I recently had an outer thighplasty performed by Dr. Yao. It was necessary to remove sagging fat and skin from a large weightloss 18 yrs ago. I was very happy with him and his staff every step of the way. They were professional, attentive and respectful of my age. I dreaded the procedure and was relieved that it all went smoothly."- D.U. / Google / Sep 25, 2022
"Working in the medical field for a large portion of my life, I have had the opportunity to be around various surgeons and see how differently practices are run. I have also had multiple cosmetic surgeries. My entire experience with Dr. Sabeeh from consult, surgery and after care was exceptional. His depth of experience combined with his genuine concern is what really sets him apart. I am typically not a person that writes reviews, but because of the attention and care I received from Dr. Sabeeh, I really felt the need to let others know he is the plastic surgeon to see. If you don't get a consult with Dr. Sabeeh you are missing out!"- C.C. / Google / Aug 27, 2022

"In August of 2021 I was diagnosed with breast cancer which required a mastectomy to remove a very large tumor which in my case had not yet turned invasive. Although I was blessed on the cancer not spreading the size of a 11cm tumor removal would leave my chest highly disfigured especially because the nipple needed to be removed. Brenda Morthy my oncologist surgeon who in her own right is the best there is only wanted me to visit with one breast reconstruction surgeon - Dr. Walsh. Dr. Walsh was able to make something out of my left over breast no one thought possible. To this day what I find shocking is how humble she is and the fact she isn’t out there advertising her services just for money, but yet anyone you talk to in the world of cancer or complicated reconstruction cases to a one will tell you, "Dr. Walsh is the very best, there is no better". I believe someone was watching over me in all the doctors I met in my journey with the most talented being Dr. Molly Walsh."- S.R. / Yelp / Aug 09, 2022
"Dr. Walsh is amazing! The ENTIRE staff from the back office to the front desk and Kayla, her medical assistant, are amazing! After a breast cancer diagnosis, Dr. Walsh took the time to answer all my questions and ease all my fears, which helped me to make the decisions needed for my treatment. The day of surgery began at 6 am. She did not leave until stopping by to check on me late that evening. I really cannot say enough about her professionalism, bedside manner, dedication, and surgical skills. I highly recommend Dr. Walsh if you are looking for a skilled, kind, caring, professional surgeon! I am truly blessed to have Dr. Walsh as my surgeon!"- S.C. / Google / Jul 29, 2022
Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation with a Lift?
There are several reasons why you may be looking into breast augmentation combined with a lift. It is an ideal choice if you would like to significantly rejuvenate your breasts while improving your skin elasticity. You may have developed sagging of the breasts due to pregnancy, aging, or significant weight loss; therefore, you would like to increase the volume of your breasts — this can all be achieved with an augmentation and lift. Dr. Yao will be able to assess whether a lift by itself can get your best results or if both procedures are needed to attain your overall desired look.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation with a Lift?
By combining these two procedures into one, we are able to offer significant benefits while preventing patients from having to undergo two separate procedures, each with its own amount of downtime. Our patients are able to enhance the shape, size, symmetry, and lift of their breasts in order to achieve the body contour of their dreams. In many cases, this allows patients to feel much more comfortable with the overall appearance of their bodies.
What to Expect from Breast Augmentation + Lift
If you desire to transform your breast by lifting your breasts into a better position, while also improving your breast volume, this combination of surgeries can help you attain a more youthful appearance. You may have developed breast sagging because of aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can assess if you need a breast lift, breast augmentation, or both procedures to achieve your overall desired look. During your consultation, the plastic surgeon will conduct a formal exam, develop a customized surgical plan, review all surgical details, and discuss breast implant options.
We perform your breast surgery as an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia. In general, the plastic surgeon will perform the breast augmentation first, then follow with the lift. Lift incisions can vary from patient to patient, this will be discussed in detail prior to surgery.
Recovery time for breast surgery will vary for every patient. In general, patients will be placed in a compression garment for the first 2-3 weeks, and then transitioned into a soft sports bra. To help with healing, patients should avoid any exercise and strenuous activities for 4-6 weeks. Initial settling and softening of the breast will occur within the first 3-4 months, and results will continue to improve over the first year.
