About Augmentation + Lift
As many women age, they can lose breast volume while others may begin to notice loose, excess breast skin. Some women experience both problems that lead to deflated breasts that sag. If you would like to increase the size of your breast while also eliminating loose skin, plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev suggest a breast augmentation surgery plus a breast lift (mastopexy). This procedure at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY begins by removing excess skin from the chest, and then adding silicone or saline implants to reach your desired breast size. A breast augmentation with a lift improves multiple concerns, such as shape, size, and position to create more youthful, perky breasts. Make a consultation with one of our skilled plastic surgeons to discuss your unique concerns and wants, so we can help you decide if a breast surgery with a lift and augmentation best fits you.

There are several reasons why you may be considering breast augmentation combined with a lift. It's a great approach if you desire to fully rejuvenate your breasts and improve the elasticity of your skin. You may be experiencing sagging of the breasts caused by significant weight loss, aging, or pregnancy, therefore you would like to enhance breast fullness — this can all be achieved with a combination breast surgery. Our plastic surgeons will be able to determine if a lift alone will get your desired outcome, or if both a lift and implants are better to attain your goals.
This combination breast surgery is typically done at our accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Breast implants are positioned and then excess breast skin is removed while the nipple areolar complex is raised. We will go over the options available for breast implants before your surgery so your implants will be ready for placement.
What to Expect
Recovery time for this particular procedure will be different from patient to patient; however, you should be able to return to your normal activities within seven days. You will need to abstain from intense exercise and strenuous activities for 2 – 6 weeks. There will also be some inflammation after your surgery that may last for a few weeks. Breasts will settle into their new, transformed position in about 3-4 months where at that time you will be able to appreciate your final result.
