What is a breast Augmentation + Lift?
As women age, it's natural for some to lose fullness in their breasts while others develop excess or sagging skin on the breasts. Many women experience both changes over time, resulting in a sagging, deflated appearance. If this describes your current situation, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arun Rao can perform a breast augmentation with a lift (mastopexy). This combination procedure at Rao Plastic Surgery in Tucson, AZ allows you to address both the loss of breast volume and laxity in just one surgery. Breast augmentation with lift addresses breast position, shape, and size all at the same time to give you younger, perkier-looking breasts. Book a consultation with our team to review your specific goals today. We strive to provide the best care and utmost attention to ensure you have a successful, satisfying experience.

"The moment I showed up for my Consult, I was greeted by a friendly office staff. They are super friendly and professional. After meeting Dr Rao he was very patient and made me feel so comfortable. My consult was for a Breast Lift and implants. After years of being unhappy and insecure with how my breasts looked. I was stressed out about him taking pictures of my breasts, but he was super polite and made me feel comfortable. I had surgery Nov 2nd and I'm still recovering, ...but had a very pleasant experience. Before my surgery and after Dr. Rao was very reassuring that I was going to be very happy. I truly am happy. I called his office on a Saturday and he returned my call within minutes. He truly cares about all his patients. I've already recommend 2 friends to get consults with him and I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering surgery. My surgery was at Tucson Surgical Associates they were all amazing. They kept telling me '" you are in great hands." I'm so happy with my entire experience. Thank you so much Dr Rao."- D.V. / Facebook / Nov 03, 2018
"I never thought that I would ever do any type of plastic surgery and of coarse after I had kids I just couldn't take how flat my breast got. The minute I meet Dr. Rao I knew if I decide to get my breast done he would be the one to do it. I was a little nervous since I had to have a lift and implant and since I have never been under anesthesia or taken narcotics I didn't know what to expect but I'm now 4 weeks post surgery I'm am beyond satisfied with my results!!!! I felts so great even a few days after my surgery my back hurt more then anything but other then that I felt really good:-) Dr. Rao is extremely professional! He has great attention to detail and most important he listens to what YOUR wants and needs are. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to do my surgery but Dr. Rao! ??"- J.N. / Facebook / Jul 26, 2017

Who is a candidate for breast augmentation + lift?
Ideal candidates for breast augmentation and lift surgery want to significantly transform their breasts. You may have developed breast ptosis (sagging) due to age, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. Before undergoing surgery, it is important to have realistic expectations about your outcome. Dr. Rao can help set reasonable goals during a consultation. Inform our staff in Tucson, AZ about any underlying medical conditions that could affect your procedure. We hope to provide all our patients with safe, effective treatments that help them achieve their desired appearance.
What is the technique for breast augmentation + lift?
Breast augmentation with a lift is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure that requires sedation with general anesthesia. In most cases, the breast implant is placed first in either a submuscular dual plane position or a subglandular position. Once the implant is in place, the loose skin is excised and the nipple-areola complex is repositioned to a more central position. Dr. Rao can review your breast implant options before surgery so your ideal size, shape, and profile are achieved afterward.
What Can I Expect with Breast Augmentation + Lift?
The recovery timeframe for breast augmentation with a lift will vary for every patient in Tucson, AZ, but you should be well enough to return to everyday activities within about a week. Still, you should refrain from any exercise or strenuous activities for at least six weeks. There may be mild to moderate swelling following the procedure that can last for several months. Your implants will begin to settle into their final positions at this time, after which you should be able to enjoy your stunning outcomes.
Breast augmentation + Lift FAQ
How much does breast augmentation with a lift cost?
The cost of breast augmentation and lift surgery varies depending on many factors, including the implants chosen, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and more. Additionally, some procedures have more complexity based on the case. During a thorough consultation, Dr. Rao will create a personalized plan that includes cost estimates. Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery accepts a number of payment forms, as well as low-interest financing.
Will a breast augmentation with a lift correct sagging?
Breast augmentation and lift surgery can improve breast volume and eliminate common issues like sagging. The "lift" portion of your procedure should also raise your native breast tissue so the results are perky and firm. This is important because adding volume to breasts with moderate sagging can cause a negative result if a lift is not performed. If moderate to severe sagging is present, there may be a need for a staged procedure in which a lift is performed and followed by the addition of implants. Dr. Rao will listen to your concerns before creating a custom treatment.
Which incision is best for my surgery?
Our team employs special techniques to reduce the visibility of scars. The incision we choose will be based on the implants being used and the degree of sagging involved. Severe cases may require an anchor-shaped or inverted T incision. Dr. Rao can review different incision patterns and explain the ones that best suit your unique needs. Regardless of the method selected, Dr. Rao makes careful incisions so your results look natural.
How long will my results last?
As long as you do not have dramatic weight fluctuations or become pregnant, your outcomes from a breast augmentation with a lift can last many years. While both silicone and saline implants are made with longevity in mind, they do need to be examined every few years. It's important to understand that while a breast lift with augmentation can offer beautiful results, natural age may continue to change your appearance. In time, you may start to notice loose skin and sagging again, which could be addressed with a second surgery if desired.
How bad is the scarring?
Dr. Rao performs breast augmentation with a lift so all incisions are thin and small. He does his best to place incisions where they are difficult to see, such as under the folds of the breast or along the border of the areola. With proper care, the scars from your breast augmentation and lift will eventually lighten so they lay flat and blend with your natural skin. Dr. Rao can discuss post-op care tips to help your scars heal seamlessly.
