Breast Augmentation With a Lift in Houston, Texas

Request A Consultation


Aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can all cause a woman’s breasts to lose volume and firmness. The combination of breast augmentation and breast lift surgery is medically referred to as augmentation mastopexy and is designed to address sagging while also enhancing the size and shape of breasts.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation With a Lift?

Good candidates for augmentation mastopexy are:

  • Non-smokers
  • At a healthy and stable weight
  • Unhappy with the size, shape, and position of their breasts
  • Not planning to become pregnant within the next few years
  • Able to arrange time for recovery and comply with post-surgical instructions

A thorough consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mennen Gallas, is the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for this combination surgery. He will review your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and discuss your concerns and goals before making the recommendations that best meet your needs.

To achieve the look you desire, Dr. Gallas may suggest breast augmentation surgery, a breast lift, or both.

Augmentation mastopexy is beneficial for women with:

  • Sagging breasts due to age
  • Breasts that appear deflated after pregnancy or weight loss

To find out if you are a good candidate for augmentation mastopexy, call our Katy, Texas office to schedule your consultation at (281) 646-1114 or complete our online contact form.

How Is Breast Augmentation With a Lift Performed?

General anesthesia is administered in the state-licensed Surgery Center before the procedure begins to ensure your comfort and safety.

Where Are the Incisions Placed for Augmentation Mastopexy?

This procedure typically uses an inverted-T or anchor-shaped incision that starts around the areola, extending vertically down to the base of the breast and along the bottom folds.

Smaller incisions may be possible depending on the amount of lifting needed and the desired outcome.

Breast Lift and Reshaping

Dr. Gallas lifts and reshapes the breast tissue, repositions the nipple-areola complex to a higher, more youthful position, and removes excess skin. This step is crucial in addressing sagging and achieving a firmer, perkier breast contour.

Breast Augmentation

Once the breast tissue is lifted and reshaped, breast implants are inserted. The surgeon places the implants either under the chest muscle (submuscular) or over the muscle (subglandular) based on the patient’s anatomy and cosmetic goals.

Closing the Incisions

The incisions are carefully closed with sutures, skin adhesives, or surgical tape after the implants are positioned and adjusted.

What Types of Breast Implants Can Be Used?

You can choose silicone or saline breast implants, which are available in a variety of sizes to suit your body type. The amount of existing breast tissue you have will also impact the best breast implant size for you.

Silicone implants tend to provide more natural results, while saline implants offer a rounder breast appearance and ample cleavage. Saline implants can be placed under the chest muscles for a more natural appearance. Various profiles of implants are available depending on the desired profile.

What Will My Augmentation Mastopexy Recovery Be Like?

After surgery, you’ll be monitored in a recovery area, and when you are discharged, you will need a ride home. A supportive surgical bra or compression garment is worn to aid in healing and provide support.

Following Dr. Gallas’s post-operative care instructions is essential and includes these seven tips:

  1. Take medication as directed
  2. Take proper care of incision sites
  3. Get adequate rest
  4. Eat nutritious meals
  5. Stay hydrated
  6. Avoid strenuous activity
  7. Attend all follow-up appointments.

Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are common after surgery, which will subside gradually over two to three weeks.

When Will I See My Breast Augmentation and Lift Results?

As swelling resolves and incisions heal, you will notice improved volume and a more youthful breast shape. It may take up to six months for your final outcome to be clear.

The results of breast augmentation with a breast lift are intended to provide long-lasting improvements in breast size, shape, and overall appearance.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation With a Lift Cost?

The cost of your augmentation mastopexy is determined by the extent of your procedure, the options chosen, and the time required in the Surgery Center. Dr. Gallas’s patient care coordinator will explain any additional fees and provide you with an accurate cost quote after your consultation.

What Other Procedures Can Be Performed With Augmentation Mastopexy?

Breast augmentation with a lift can be combined with tummy tuck surgery or liposuction for comprehensive body enhancement, also known as a Mommy Makeover.
