Breast Augmentation With Lift

with DrBfixin in Long Island, NY

Breast augmentation—consistently one of the top plastic surgeries in the world—is amazing at increasing breast size. However, placing breast implants is not enough to correct breast sagging in most cases. Thus, patients who have sagging and loss of volume will often benefit from breast lift surgery as well. Dr. Scott Blyer at Cameo Surgery Center provides the best breast augmentation with lift Long Island offers.

Overview: What Is A Breast Augmentation With Lift?

Breast augmentation with lift is a combination of two plastic surgeries—a breast augmentation and a breast lift—into one surgery. It addresses two of the most common complaints women have with their breasts: breast volume and breast sagging. The procedure is commonly performed as part of a mommy makeover surgery because the loss of volume and sagging breasts are common after pregnancy.

Patients can choose any type of breast implant. One advantage of a breast lift with implants is that Dr. B can place the implants through the breast lift incision. The breast lift incisions will likely take on an anchor shape with the incision curving around the areola, down the breast, and through the breast crease. Occasionally, Dr. B can minimize the incisions with the lollipop, donut, or underarm breast lift techniques.


Most healthy women with qualifying anatomy are good candidates for a breast lift with augmentation. Often these patients will have weight loss, pregnancies, or years of aging in their history. These are three of the most common reasons women undergo the surgery.

Beyond this, the patient should understand the procedure and the necessary incisions. They will have realistic expectations. Healthwise, as long as a patient is managing any major health conditions, does not have certain medical disorders, and is not undergoing cancer treatment or similar immune suppressant treatment, they are likely a good candidate.

Dr. B will use a combination of the patient’s existing anatomy, goals for the surgery, and medical history to determine if the patient is a good candidate. He will also create a customized surgical plan.

Breast Augmentation With vs. Without Lift

Deciding whether to do a breast augmentation with a lift or without is not always an easy decision, particularly when a patient may only have minor breast ptosis. While ultimately this requires the evaluation of a plastic surgeon, there are considerations to make when determining which procedure will provide the patient with the results they want. The table below compares the two surgeries.

Breast Augmentation

  • Enlarge the breasts
  • Nipple position not altered
  • Increases breast
  • projection
  • Does not address breast sagging
  • Great for treating breast asymmetry
  • Uses an implant
  • Performed on adult women of all ages
  • More customization options
  • Maintains volume until implant is removed

Breast Lift

  • Remove extra skin to lift the breasts
  • Nipple moved upward on the breast
  • Changes positioning of the breasts
  • Does not address breast volume
  • Can sometimes treat breast asymmetry
  • No implant necessary
  • Mostly performed on women who have had children or undergone massive weight loss
  • Cannot prevent future sagging

The table below compares the two surgeries.

How To Know If You Need A Breast Lift

Breast ptosis—or breast sagging—is often easy to spot. Do the nipples point downward? Does skin irritation or rashes occur in or around the breast crease? Can the breasts hold up a pencil when it is placed in the lower crease? All of these are potential signs that a patient may benefit from a breast lift surgery.

Some mild breast sagging is not always obvious though. For example, the lower breast tissue may sag, but the nipple remains facing forward. Additionally, the nipple position may only have a slight deviation. With minor sagging, a breast lift is not always necessary at that time, but a breast lift may be needed in the future.

The results of the total surgery last between ten and fifteen years for most patients. The implants may last even longer. Unfortunately, gravity will continue to pull the breasts downward and they will sag again. However, it usually takes several years for this to happen. Patients can enjoy their results long term.

Yes, for most patients it is perfectly safe to perform the two procedures together. The surgical time is not much longer than a standard breast lift. However, there are cases where Dr. B may not advise that patients undergo both surgeries at the same time. This may be due to medical conditions, smoking, or medical history.

In some cases, Dr. B will split the surgeries into separate sessions. Other times, a patient may not be a candidate for one procedure or the other. He can discuss this during a consultation at Cameo Surgery Center.

Recovering after Long Island breast augmentation with lift surgery is similar to the recovery associated with either procedure when performed alone. It is normal to experience chest tightness, particularly if the breast implants were placed under the muscle. Swelling and bruising may also occur. Generally, patients begin to see any side effects subside in three to four days.

Dr. B will provide aftercare and recovery instructions which may include:

  • Rest and sleep with head elevated
  • Wear the surgical bra consistently
  • Do not remove any bandages, wraps, or other protective materials
  • Avoid lifting arms above chest level
  • Do not lift heavy objects
  • Refrain from strenuous activities and exercise
  • Attend post-operative appointments
  • Care for incisions as directed
  • Do not return to work or activities prematurely
  • Avoid getting incisions wet
  • Massage breasts only when/if instructed
  • Do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. B with any questions or concerns

A breast augmentation with lift in Long Island with Dr. B ranges between $13,999 and $16,500 depending on whether the patient chooses saline implants or silicone implants.

Financing is available through Care Credit. Occasionally, Cameo Surgery Center does offer payment plans in specific situations. However, the full balance of the surgery must be paid before surgery.

The most common scarring following a breast lift with augmentation surgery is the standard anchor incision. This includes an incision around the areola, vertically down the breast, and through the inframammary fold. While this may seem extensive, the incisions are hidden in bras and bathing suits easily. The areola and inframammary fold incisions also tend to remain fairly hidden in general.

Sometimes, Dr. B may use a less extensive incision which places an internal bra to support and lift the breast. However, this is in cases where sagging is minimal and a patient has qualifying anatomy and goals. Dr. B can discuss this during a consultation to see if a patient is a candidate for a breast lift with a smaller incision.
