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.

"The first time I met the doctor was on the recommendation of my GP who suggested to visit Dr. Gary Rosembaum because I needed to have my breast implants changed; on that first occasion I had the prosthesis replaced, the surgery was a total success and recovery very fast!On the following visits, I told the doctor that I wanted to have my eyelids lifted, he told me that this type of surgery is very simple, that it is done in his office that it takes only 40 minutes with a speedy recovery. From that moment I didn’t hesitate for a moment to do the surgery and I cannot be happier!3 months have passed since the blepharoplasty as of today I don't have any scars and the eyes are more open.Thank you Doctor Rosembaum and thanks to your assistant Yoly since you really make me feel super comfortable and safe.I truly recommend Dr Gary Rosembaum for all your plastic surgery needs."- R. / Healthgrades / May 28, 2020
"I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to recommend Dr. Rosenbaum after a flawless breast reduction experience. He and his staff (esp. Yoly) surpassed my expectations in every possible way. I was extremely nervous about the surgery, but was in good hands as Dr. Rosenbaum is detail-oriented and focused on successful, realistic outcomes. Guess what? It shows in his work. One of Miami's top surgeons for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, he's highly experienced in all aspects/challenges of breast surgery. Dr. Rosenbaum also answered my (many!) questions both before and after surgery with kindness, patience, and substantial good humor. The end result: I had a breast reduction with zero complications, healed wonderfully, and for the first time in my life, feel comfortable in my own body. Not to mention the relief from constant upper body and neck pain. After surgery, I asked myself why I had waited so long for this gift to myself. This has truly been a life changing experience. Thank You Dr. Rosenbaum!"- C. / Google / Jan 31, 2020
"I had an upper eyelid blepharoplasty with Dr. Rosenbaum to correct sagging eyelid skin. I am so pleased with the results! Dr. Rosenbaum was wonderful. His entire staff is great too especially Yoly who assisted him during the procedure. I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend Dr. Rosenbaum to anyone seeking the services of a plastic surgeon."- R.B. / Google / Dec 11, 2020
"I was referred to Dr. Rosenbaum last year after receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer. Dr. Rosenbaum was part of my surgical team, completing breast reconstruction immediately following the mastectomy. I recommend Dr. Rosenbaum not only for his excellent surgical skills but for his approach to working with patients. I appreciated that he met with me twice prior to any decision being made about my surgery and thoroughly answered all my questions. I also liked his staff who were extremely helpful and supportive. It was a difficult time for me but having a doctor who was helpful and kind (inclusive of his team) made it a little bit easier."- K.C. / Google / Dec 07, 2020
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.
