For patients with sagging breasts and loss of volume, a combination procedure (breast lift and augmentation) can be performed at the same time, thus limiting the postoperative recovery period. It is more complex than either procedure performed separately, but is commonly performed as part of a “mommy makeover.” Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, the skin sags and the breast can decrease in volume, thus the need for both procedures.
What is a Breast Lift With Augmentation
A breast lift with augmentation surgery is a combination procedure that allows a woman to gain the aesthetic benefits from both a breast lift and breast augmentation in one comprehensive surgery. It’s designed to both lift the breast to give them a more youthful look and increase their size to deliver enhanced volume.
Undergoing both at the same time allows a woman to achieve her aesthetic desires in one surgery and avoid having to go through the hurdles of having two surgeries that are spread apart.
Choosing Silicone or Saline Breast Implants
Before undergoing breast augmentation, it’s important that you understand the breast implant choices available to you. You can choose between saline and silicone breast implants. Saline implants are filled with sterilized salt water and pose no risks if a rupture were to occur. Silicone implants are filled with saline solution after they are placed in the appropriate area.
Silicone breast implants come pre-filled with a silicone gel that more closely resembles human fat. This option has become the most preferred because they look and feel more natural. Silicone implants have also improved greatly over the years and have a much lower chance of rupturing.

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful. After several consultations with other plastic surgeons I settled on Dr. Olding because I believed he was the most qualified and showed the best judgment while explaining my procedure to me.
