About Augmentation + Lift

As patients start to age, the breasts can decrease in volume or become saggy. If you would like to increase breast volume while also removing excess skin, plastic surgeon Dr. Jerry Chidester, or Dr. Chiddy, can perform a breast augmentation surgery with a lift (mastopexy). This procedure in Draper, UT begins by excising loose skin from the chest and then inserting saline or silicone implants. To create younger, perkier-looking breasts, breast augmentation with a lift improves several issues, including size, shape, and position. We encourage our Greater Salt Lake City community to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chiddy to discuss specific concerns and cosmetic goals. Dr. Chiddy can help you determine if breast augmentation with a lift best fits your needs.

Is Breast Augmentation + Lift Right For You?

If you want to fully transform your breasts and improve your skin's elasticity, breast augmentation and a lift may work well for you. Significant weight loss, aging, or pregnancy can decrease the volume of the breasts and cause sagginess. It may also help patients who have large or elongated nipples or areolas that extend downward. With an augmentation and lift, patients can attain fuller-looking, shapelier, and lifted breasts. Based on your goals, Dr. Chiddy will determine if you need just a lift, breast augmentation, or both procedures.

Surgical Technique

Breast augmentation and a lift are commonly performed as an outpatient procedure, and it will include general anesthesia. Typically, Dr. Chiddy completes the breast lift first, then places the implant. During this part, any loose skin is removed and the surrounding tissue is smoothed. Before your surgery, Dr. Chiddy will discuss the options available for breast implants so he can easily place them. For some patients, when an implant is inserted, they may need extra soft tissue support. If needed, Dr. Chiddy can place a GalaFORM 3D internal bra, which provides extra support for the implant. The GalaFORM 3D internal bra is shaped like a hammock and made with dissolvable sutures. When placed inside the surgical pocket with the implant, it can help support the tissue. Over time, it starts to naturally dissolve and can help with collagen production. At your consultation, Dr. Chiddy will also discuss the incision type, and in some cases, patients may need the nipple or areola moved to match their new breast size and shape.

What to Expect

The recovery timeframe for breast augmentation with a lift varies from patient to patient. Generally, it takes about seven days before you can resume your daily activities. When it comes to more strenuous activities, like exercise, you will need to avoid these types of things for 2 – 6 weeks. At first, patients may also experience mild to moderate swelling after their surgery, which can last for about three weeks. Your breasts will begin to settle into their final position in about 3 – 6 months. At that time, you should be able to see your final results.
