As many women age, they may lose fullness in their breasts while others may begin to notice excess breast skin. Some women will have both of these issues, which leads to sagging, deflated breasts. If you would like to increase breast volume while also eliminating loose skin, seasoned plastic surgeon Dr. F. Jorge Gonzalez can perform a breast augmentation surgery plus a breast lift (mastopexy). This procedure at Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery in Orlando, FL begins by removing loose skin from the breasts and then placing silicone or saline implants to get to your goal size. Breast augmentation with a lift addresses multiple concerns, such as size, shape, and position to create younger, perkier-looking breasts. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Gonzalez to go over your unique needs and goals, so he can help you decide if a breast augmentation with a lift is best for you. We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your ideal look.


There are several reasons why you may be looking into breast surgery. It’s an ideal choice if you want to significantly enhance your bust size while improving the firmness of your breast skin after weight loss or pregnancy. After a consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will be able to determine if a lift alone will get your desired outcome, or if both a lift and implants are better to attain your goals.


Breast augmentation with a lift is commonly done at an accredited surgical facility as an outpatient procedure where you will be sedated with general anesthesia. In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is done first. The excess skin is eliminated and the soft tissue is smoothed. Dr. Gonzalez will explain the options available for breast implants before your surgery so your implants will be ready for placement. In certain patients, the nipple-areola complex may be moved to match your new breast shape and size.


The recovery timeframe for an augmentation with a lift will be different for every patient; however, you will probably be well enough to get back to your everyday activities in about seven days. It is best to refrain from exercise and strenuous activities for at least 2 – 6 weeks. There will also be mild to moderate inflammation after your surgery that may last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your implants will settle into their final position after several months, where at that time you will be able to see your results.


How much does breast augmentation with a lift cost?
Your costs for a breast augmentation with a lift will vary depending on multiple factors, like whether you want implants (saline or silicone) or a fat transfer. Also, the complexity of the lift will help determine your cost. In your initial consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will develop a personalized surgical plan and then estimate your costs. Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery takes many payment methods and we can help you find low-interest financing.

Will a breast augmentation with a lift correct sagging?
A good reason to get breast surgery that combines augmentation with a lift is that it increases the size of your chest while also addressing sag by removing loose skin. The breast lift will also adjust your natural breast tissue so the results are perky and firm. This is crucial since augmenting breasts with mild sagging may cause a less than ideal outcome if a breast lift isn’t done to address the sag. To address sagging, a breast lift should be completed and then a fat transfer or implants can be added. In your initial consultation with Dr. Gonzalez, he will take his time to understand your concerns and wants before examining the condition of your chest. Following this, he can offer his suggestion on whether you need a lift, implants, or a combination of both.

Which incision is best for my surgery?
Incisions patterns for breast surgery have become more advanced with techniques being developed to help minimize the visibility of scars. The surgical incision that is best for you will be chosen based on the type of implants and severity of breast sag. To correct moderate to severe breast sag, an anchor-shaped incision pattern is most effective. When forming your surgical plan, Dr. Gonzalez will go over incision options and which fits your needs. No matter what pattern is selected, Dr. Gonzalez will make incisions carefully for natural-looking results.

How long will my results last?
If you don’t have dramatic weight changes or get pregnant, your results from a breast augmentation with a lift should last many years. Although both silicone and saline implants are long-lasting, they should be assessed regularly to check their condition. In the surgery, Dr. Gonzalez sets your implants with a technique that reduces breast sagging. This will help your results last for a long time. It’s important to know that while cosmetic breast surgery will give beautiful results, the natural aging process still occurs. In time, you might begin to notice sagging and loose skin again, but this can be addressed with another procedure.

How bad is the scarring?
Dr. Gonzalez performs breast augmentation with a lift so all incisions are thin and small. He does his best to make incisions in areas that are difficult to see, like in the breast folds or on the areola border. If you properly care for them, in time, the scars will lighten and blend more with your normal skin. Dr. Gonzalez or someone on his staff will discuss scar care instructions you need to follow after your procedure so your incisions heal properly.
