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.

"Barbara SorianoWhen I lost over 30 lbs a couple years ago, I was not happy with the way my neck and my breast looked. I started researching plastic surgeons that could help me with a neck and breast lift. I consulted a few in New York and New Jersey, but wasn’t satisfied with what they were offering. Then, after taking my cousin’s advice, I started to look for a doctor in Miami. That’s how I came across Dr. Rosenbaum I read all his credentials and reviews, and I wrote an email to his staff. From the first response I got from Gladys, I felt confident that I had found the place to have my surgery. Not long after, I flew to Miami to meet Dr. Rosenbaum. Everything was great— his office, his staff ,the way he spent time with me explaining the surgery and recuperation, the fact that he does his surgeries in Mt Sinai OR and you stay overnight. Not to mention, the personalized care and attention. I was sure I had found the doctor I was looking for. Dr. Rosenbaum is caring, professional, experienced, and a lovely person. I must also praise his staff. Nora was upfront about all costs and explained the financial aspects of the procedure in a simple, honest way. Yoli, his nurse, is lovely, and very professional , while Gladys was there for me every time I needed her before and after my procedure. I am so glad I flew from New York to Miami to have my 2 procedures with Dr. Rosenbaum, and could not be happier with the results! He’s changed my life and confidence.!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 05, 2019

"Dr Rosenbaum changed my life for the best. I got exactly what I wished for and I couldn’t be more pleased with my amazing breast reduction results. From myfirst consultation, I knew I had chosen the right surgeon. Not only is he very professional, it is obvious that he’s an expert in breast surgery from his detailed explanation of the procedure. He made me feel comfortable from the start of my journey. The staff was also incredible, Yoli was always available to answer any post of questions."- C.N. / Google / May 26, 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.
