What is breast lift surgery with implants? 

Breast lift surgery with implants

Breast implants with lift cosmetic surgery is designed to correct drooping breasts while adding fullness and shape to the breasts. When breast lift and breast augmentation are combined, the procedure can create enhanced breast contours and ideal proportions by raising the breasts to a more youthful level, while placing silicone or saline implants to increase their size.  

At the time of your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss your best options for breast lift surgery technique and the implant type, size, and placement. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides breast lift with implants surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations. 


If you are seeking to enhance your breast size and fullness, but your breasts also have a considerable degree of ptosis (sagginess), you may be a candidate for breast augmentation with lift plastic surgery. This procedure can be ideally suited if you are looking to:  

  • Increase your breast size  
  • Firm up your breasts to make them lifted and perkier 
  • Improve the symmetry and shape of your breasts  

If you are seeking a mommy makeover, this combined breast procedure could be a part of your surgery plan. In some cases, it may also be recommended for mastectomy patients who are looking for breast reconstruction.  


A breast implants with lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, usually under general anesthesia. Your surgeon may first place the implants by creating an implant pocket in the breast tissue. This will give them an idea of how much of the loose breast will need to be excised during the second stage of the procedure, which is the breast lift. 

Once the implants are positioned correctly into the pockets, your surgeon will utilize the same incisions or create an additional incision to perform breast lift. This will involve removal and tightening of the excess breast tissue, while elevating the breasts to a more youthful position.  

The areolas and nipples may be resized and moved to a more natural looking, raised level to create an overall attractive and younger look of your breasts.  


Results of the breast lift with implants surgery are more comprehensive compared to a single breast augmentation or breast lift surgery. Your surgeon will have the flexibility to plan your procedure more effective and optimize the outcomes when both surgeries are combined into one.  

They will be able to utilize the same incisions for both procedures, and possibly reduce the incision size for breast lift if the ptosis is limited. You can expect more proportionate and natural looking results with the combined procedure.  


Mild tightness and soreness in the breasts is expected in the first few days after your breast implants with lift surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe you pain drugs to keep you comfortable. By the second week, much of the bruising would have resolved, and you can resume your regular activities. However, you should continue to avoid strenuous exercises for at least a month.
