What is Breast Augmentation with a Lift?

Women pursuing a breast lift may require a combination procedure of a lift with an augmentation to obtain their goals. At Peak Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Barker strives to provide each patient pursuing a combination of a breast lift and augmentation with an individualized surgical plan to obtain optimal results. As women age, they may lose fullness in their breasts, while others may begin to notice excess skin on their chest. Some women experience both changes with deflated, sagging breasts. If you would like to increase breast volume while also eliminating excess skin, Dr. Eric Barker can perform a breast augmentation surgery with a lift (mastopexy). This procedure at Peak Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO, starts by removing loose skin from the breasts and then adding silicone or saline implants to achieve your goal size. A breast augmentation with a lift improves several concerns, such as shape, size, and position to create perkier, more youthful-looking breasts. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Barker to discuss your specific needs and goals, so He can help you determine if a combination breast surgery with both augmentation and a lift best fits your needs.

After the surgery, patients will continue to avoid strenuous activity for the first 4 – 6 weeks following surgery.

The discomfort will continue to improve daily, and most patients are able to return to work within 3 to 5 days after surgery. During the operation, Dr. Barker will inject an anesthetic to help control immediate post-operative pain.
