Breast Augmentation with Lift
Breast augmentation including a breast lift improves the overall volume and shape of the breast. This comprehensive surgery includes both the placement of breast implants and the skin tightening technique (lift), which brings the breasts to a higher location on the chest. A number of factors can cause breasts to lose volume and begin to sag — pregnancy and weight loss are among the most common. At Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, we can address both the size and placement of our patients' breasts with this combination surgical procedure in the Miami Beach, FL area.

"It's not easy finding a doctor who you can trust these days but I have to say Dr. Rosenbaum exceeded my expectations. At our first meeting he was honest and forthright in what his outcome for my breast augmentation would be. I've had several surgeries and at this point I was a bit hesitant as to what Dr. Rosenbaum was able to fix. After fifteen years of having implants I removed them in December. As you know with age things don't look the same so I opted to put them back in after being out seven months. The results after surgery were amazing!!! I am so happy to have my body back to normal. Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff were very professional and I would recommend him. Especially if you have a challenging case he is your go to doctor to fix it. I'm so grateful for making me look and feel beautiful again."- C.R. / Google / Aug 09, 2018
"At 72...a tummy tuck was not on my bucket list...but 2 abdominal surgeries left me with a large hernia and my general surgeon said I would get the best result by having a plastic surgeon do the "tuck" at the same time. He recommended Dr. Rosenbaum and I am so happy he did. The result is AMAZING! The surgery was more complicated than expected and Dr. R went above and beyond to make sure I had the best result..which I did. I highly recommend him."- B.K. / Healthgrades / Jul 25, 2018
"At the age of 50 the last thing a woman wants to hear is that she has breast cancer, but I was immensely blessed that I was referred to Dr. Rosenbaum. He and his staff are a blessing. To me Dr. Rosenbaum is the best surgeon anyone can have. He is very caring and knowledgable and his staff very professional and accommodating to your needs. Look no further, you can not find in Florida a better surgeon than Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff"- E.R. / Healthgrades / May 16, 2018

A good candidate for breast augmentation with lift surgery is typically:
- In good overall health
- At or near their goal weight
- Over 18 years old
- Healthy, with no major medical issues
- Well informed about potential risks
- Has nipples and areolas that point downward
- Is not planning to/or has finished breastfeeding
What to Expect
This surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. The recovery for this combination procedure is similar to that which occurs with a singular breast lift surgery, but may require a few additional days of adjustment to the new weight of the implant. On average, a patient can expect to be able to resume normal daily activities after a week, but strenuous exercises must still be avoided until approved by Dr. Rosenbaum. This is to ensure that the surgical technique used for the lift is not compromised and to avoid internal bleeding. Optimal results will usually be noticeable after about three months when the breasts have settled into their new shape.
After swelling and bruising have both subsided, patients can expect higher, perkier breasts. As with most surgeries, the incisions will heal, fade, and lighten over time, but the scarring may never diminish entirely. While there’s a common misconception that implants will eventually need to be replaced, this is not always the case. In most situations, as long as there are no issues with the implants, they will last a very long time. It is, however, important that women with saline implants are monitored by Dr. Rosenbaum in three-year intervals, to ensure that they are not leaking and that they're functioning properly.
