Lifting Your Allure
As we go through life, our breasts can be affected by weight loss, pregnancy, or simply even the force of gravity. This can cause breasts to look deflated and is a source of insecurity for many women. At Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA, we help women achieve attractive and uplifted breasts that enhance their figure & boost their confidence.
Fuller. Perkier. More Youthful.
For women who are unsatisfied with the shape and size of their bust, a breast augmentation combined with a breast lift (also known as augmentation mastopexy) can help breasts appear fuller, rounder, perkier, and more youthful.
The augmentation portion of the procedure gives the breast more volume and cleavage, and the breast lift portion of the procedure lifts drooping breast tissue and the nipple up into the appropriate position. The result is a more elevated appearance that is voluminous and sexy. Call Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA, to schedule a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons to learn more.
With a breast augmentation with lift Reston patients can enjoy a number of benefits, such as:
Finding Your Perfect Fit
There are several factors that may have you considering breast augmentation with a lift. It is an ideal option if you would like to dramatically transform your breasts while improving the firmness of your breast skin. You may be experiencing breast ptosis (sagging) caused by aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. Thus, you would like to increase breast fullness, which can all be addressed with a combination breast surgery. Your Austin-Weston surgeon will be able to assess if a lift by itself can achieve your best results or if both procedures are better for attaining your goals.

Designed for You
At our practice in Reston breast augmentation with lift is performed under general anesthesia and takes around two to three hours to perform. Each breast augmentation with lift procedure will involve the following basic steps
During a breast augmentation with lift, the implant is placed to first restore volume. Next, the excess skin is removed around the breast in order to reshape it. This also lifts the nipple to a more perky and straightforward position so the overall breast remains in harmony and balance. The size of the areola is sometimes altered as well, depending on the amount of native areola skin and the desired final size.
Depending on your individual breast enhancement goals, there are several variations of breast lift surgery performed by our cosmetic surgeons. These are the three most common breast lift incision patterns:
In each type of breast lift procedure, your surgeon removes excess skin and tissue to lift and tighten the bust. This process reverses the effects of aging or pregnancy to give you perkier, younger-looking breasts. The type of lift that is best for your body is determined at the time of your complimentary consultation. The factors that dictate the type of lift performed include patient preference, the degree of droop, and the size of the implant chosen.
Raise Your Expectations
Most women take a week off work to recover from a breast augmentation with lift. Patients are typically off daytime pain medication by the one-week mark but may still require some pain medication at night to rest comfortably. The plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston ask patients to avoid strenuous activity for the first week postoperatively and to avoid chest pectoralis muscle exercises for six weeks. Final photographs are taken around three months, and the scars can be expected to fade and lighten for several years after the procedure.
Patients often inquire whether they need a breast lift, augmentation, or both. If you know you want larger breasts than your current size, your surgeon will talk to you about placing an implant. Based on the size of that implant and your desired 'look,' your surgeon may recommend a type of breast lift to accompany the augmentation. This is very much based on the individual and requires an in-person examination and discussion.
The minimum lifetime of a breast implant is about ten years. However, as long as implants remain intact and stay in a favorable position on the chest, they can last much longer. Like the skin on the rest of the body, the skin of the breasts will continue to undergo the natural aging process. However, most patients still see noticeable lift and tautness in their breasts for many years, with the position of the breasts always remaining higher than it would have been without any surgery.
The variety of implant types, sizes, and shapes on the market today makes it easy to customize your procedure around your individual needs and goals. We will spend time educating you about your options and helping you visualize the outcomes of different implants to assist you in making a choice you will be happy with for years to come.
