What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift (mastopexy) is a procedure that can help restore the appearance of your breasts by creating a more youthful, lifted look. With a breast lift, you can achieve a fuller-looking bust with more natural contours. During breast lift surgery, excess skin and tissue are removed from the breasts, the skin is tightened, and the areola may be repositioned.

What is a Breast Augmentation With Lift?

A breast augmentation with lift (augmentation mastopexy) is a combination of two procedures — a breast augmentation, which involves the placement of breast implants, and a breast lift, which can help restore the shape and position of the breasts. Combining these two procedures allows you to achieve fuller, perkier-looking breasts with improved shape and more natural-looking cleavage.

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Augmentation With Lift?

It is essential to have realistic expectations if you’re considering a breast augmentation with lift.

When you come in for your consultation for a breast augmentation with lift Houston plastic surgeon, Dr. Sukkar, will discuss your goals and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Some common concerns that can be addressed with a breast augmentation with lift include:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Loss of volume or asymmetry in the breasts
  • Uneven or wide-set nipples
  • Small breasts or asymmetrical breast size
  • Diminished fullness and volume in the upper breast area

Consultation and Preparation

The consultation for our Houston breast lift with implants is critical to ensure that the procedure is a good fit for achieving your cosmetic goals. During this visit, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your breasts and discuss your goals for the procedure.

Once the consultation is complete and you have decided to proceed with the procedure, your doctor will provide you with pre-and post-operative instructions to ensure your safety and optimal results. Your doctor will also ask for your medical history, including any prior surgeries or illnesses, and explain the risks associated with a breast augmentation and lift. It would be best if you also had a mammogram before surgery to evaluate changes in your breast tissue.

Choosing an Implant Size

When deciding on an implant size for your breast augmentation with lift procedure, it is important to consider both your desired aesthetic outcome and the physical proportions of your body. Your plastic surgeon will help you choose a breast implant size that is appropriate for your anatomy and will create the best aesthetic result.

It is important to remember that the size of your implant will affect how you look in clothes and swimwear. Your plastic surgeon will guide you through the selection process and help you make an informed decision.

Types of Implants

When considering a breast augmentation with lift, you can choose between various types. Dr. Sukkar will discuss your options and what would work best for you. Here is an overview of the breast implant types to expect:

Silicone vs. Saline

Silicone implants are made of a cohesive gel material and are considered the most natural-feeling option. They have been used in breast augmentation for over 30 years and are FDA-approved. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and have a more uniform shape than silicone.

Smooth vs. Textured

Smooth implants have a glossy surface and a softer feel than textured implants. Textured implants are designed to stay in place better, reducing the risk of implant migration or rotation.

Teardrop vs. Round

Round implants are the most popular choice for breast augmentation and lifts. They provide a full, rounded shape that many women often prefer. Teardrop implants are designed to give the breasts a more natural, sloping shape. By filling out the breast's lower part, teardrop implants can provide a more natural look.

High, Moderate, and Low Profile

High-profile implants are narrower and have a greater projection than low-profile implants. Low-profile implants are wider and have a less dramatic projection than high-profile implants. Moderate-profile implants have an intermediate projection that is suitable for most women.


Dr. Sukkar performs breast augmentation with lift procedures using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the patient’s preference and the complexity of the procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Sukkar will discuss which type of anesthesia is best for you.

The procedure typically takes one to three hours, depending on the complexity of the case. During the procedure, Dr. Sukkar will make an incision in the crease below each breast or along the edge of the areola for a breast lift. Depending on your anatomy and desired results, he will place the implant under the pectoral muscle (submuscular placement) or above the pectoral muscle (subglandular or subfascial placement). Finally, he will close the incisions and apply a dressing.

Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Sukkar will provide post-operative instructions so you can adequately care for your breasts and ensure a safe recovery.

Breast Implant Incisions

The incision used for your breast augmentation with lift procedure depends on the size of implants you choose and your desired aesthetic outcome. Dr. Sukkar will discuss your options during your consultation and advise which incision is best for you.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Your breast augmentation with lift results will become apparent in the days and weeks following your procedure.

You can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort during the initial recovery period. Dr. Sukkar will provide post-operative instructions to ensure a safe recovery, such as taking medications as prescribed, avoiding strenuous activities, and wearing a supportive bra.

Most women can return to work in two weeks or less, depending on their activity level. Swelling and bruising may take a few weeks to subside fully. It's important to follow your post-operative instructions.
