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.

"Still me, only younger! My main fear when I considered a lower facelift was not looking like myself after surgery. But while the surgery did change how I looked in terms of how old I looked, I was tremendously happy with how natural and refreshed my face looked. My skin is more taught, the sagginess in my neck is gone and the jowls are gone. Dr. Rosenbaum far exceeded my expectations in skill and professionalism. I am very happy with the results. I look 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Rosenbaum!"- G. / Healthgrades / Feb 07, 2019

"(Double mastectomy reconstruction)Dr. Rosenbaum is an outstanding doctor and brilliant surgeon! My medical situation was complicated, resulting in a double mastectomy performed a year apart. The outcome of my final breast implant surgery is absolutely ASTONISHING!!! My new breasts are perfectly symmetrical, look very real and so natural, that I can hardly believe it myself. I highly recommend Dr. Rosenbaum and consider him the BEST plastic surgeon in Miami, if not the entire world!!!"- W.H. / Healthgrades / Jan 15, 2019

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.
