Chad Robbins M.D., F.A.C.S., board-certified and Mayo Clinic-trained Nashville plastic surgeon, can help you improve your self image by enhancing the breasts through a breast lift with augmentation procedure. This treatment combines two of the most popular breast surgeries to provide patients with empowering and youthful results. We offer this procedure to the residents of Nashville, Franklin and the nearby areas of Tennessee.
What Is a Breast Lift with Augmentation?
A breast lift with augmentation is a procedure that combines breast lift and breast augmentation techniques. The breast lift helps patients to restore a youthful, perky shape to the breast, and often benefits women who have experienced sagging or loss of volume in the breasts due to aging, pregnancy and breastfeeding. The breast augmentation restores volume to the breasts in the form of breast implants, which helps patients to achieve their ideal breast size while filling out the shape of the breasts. Combined, the breast lift with augmentation procedure can significantly improve the breasts to address signs of aging, the effects of pregnancy, or simply to enhance the breasts and the overall proportions of the body.
Benefits of a Breast Lift with Augmentation
The benefits of a breast lift with augmentation are simple: Improved body confidence and a fuller, perkier and more youthful appearance to the breasts. The goal of the breast lift procedure is to refine the shape and appearance of a patient’s breast to their desired shape, size and placement.
Your Individual Goals
During an initial consultation visit, Dr. Robbins will discuss the breast lift with augmentation procedure with you to ensure that your treatment goals align with the possibilities of the procedure. Together, you will decide if this procedure is the best option to achieve your desired results. You will then set a date for surgery, and Dr. Robbins and his staff provide instructions about how to prepare and schedule a pre-operative appointment. During this pre-operative appointment, you will review your medical history, take pre-operative photographs, and experiment with sizer implants to ensure that you get the results you desire.
Breast Lift with Augmentation Procedure Details
On the day of surgery, you will have a final consultation with Dr. Robbins. During this time, you’ll have an opportunity to ask any remaining questions and confirm the size of implants you will receive. The breast lift with augmentation procedure is performed while you are under general anesthesia. Since two different procedures are performed during the treatment, the approach may vary slightly from the typical breast lift or breast augmentation surgery. Incisions will be strategically placed to perform both procedures while minimizing scarring. Dr. Robbins will inform you of the possible incision locations, which you will have the opportunity to fully discuss and agree upon prior to your procedure.
Once incisions are made, the breast implants will be inserted into their desired location and position. Then, excess skin will be removed from the breasts as necessary, tightening the remaining skin around the breast implants and completing the procedure.
What Can I Expect After My Breast Lift with Augmentation?
Women who undergo a breast lift with augmentation procedure can expect some soreness and swelling following the operation. You will be able to resume light activities within a few days, and most patients return to work within a week or two of their procedure. Approximately one month after treatment, you can expect to be mostly healed, and you can begin resuming light exercise. You may need to avoid strenuous activities and chest exercise for a few additional weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift with Augmentation?
If you’ve noticed a change in your breasts from pregnancy, weight change, or aging, you are a suitable candidate for breast lift surgery. If you’d like to further address these changes by using breast implants to increase your breast size, you might be a good candidate for the breast lift with augmentation procedure. Combining these two techniques can produce substantial improvements in the shape, size and youthfulness of the breasts, delivering long-term results that help women restore their confidence.
How Much Does a Breast Lift with Augmentation Cost?
Costs for breast lift with augmentation procedures vary among patients. Typically, these procedures are considered elective and are therefore uncovered by insurance. Dr. Robbins proudly offers financing options to provide accessibility to these procedures for his patients.
