What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation with a Lift?

By: Dr. Angelo Cuzalina


Age, weight changes, and pregnancy are common reasons women experience breast changes, including deflation, sagging, and excess skin. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Angelo Cuzalina with Tulsa Surgical Arts serves patients throughout Tulsa, OK to meet their cosmetic needs. Along with his expert team, Dr. Cuzalina provides outpatient breast augmentation surgery with a lift to rejuvenate the breasts and complement a more youthful silhouette.

What is a breast augmentation with a lift?

Breast augmentation involves inserting either saline or silicone implants to enlarge the breast tissue. In combination with breast augmentation, Dr. Cuzalina removes excess tissue and tightens the chest area to lift the breasts for a firmer, perkier appearance. At Tulsa Surgical Arts, breast augmentation with a lift produces natural-looking results while trimming years off a patient’s body.

What are the benefits of combining a breast augmentation with a breast lift?

Breast augmentation, in combination with a breast lift, can dramatically improve the appearance of breast tissue. As women age, in addition to volume loss, tissue begins to sag and group together in pockets of excess. A breast augmentation plus a lift can:

  • Remove excess skin

  • Tighten and firm breast tissue

  • Provide lift to sagging skin

  • Add volume to deflated tissue

  • Enhance perkiness to the nipples and breasts

  • Improve the size, position, and shape of the breasts

Am I an ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery?

If you are a woman who is unhappy with the appearance of your breasts and would like to remedy sagging skin and volume loss with long-lasting results, then a breast augmentation with a lift may be right for you. Dr. Cuzalina will listen to your cosmetic goals and concerns, perform thorough initial assessments, and collect your personal history to determine if you can safely undergo surgery.

What is the surgical procedure like?

Breast augmentation with a lift is conducted in one of our private treatment rooms at Tulsa Surgical Arts as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Cuzalina administers general anesthesia to make patients comfortable. Then, Dr. Cuzalina starts with the lift by removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue. Once the lift is complete, the breasts are enhanced with either saline or silicone implants. The areolas and nipples are reshaped and positioned for a natural look. Once the patient wakes up from general anesthesia, they are monitored for a time and then can return home the same day with a reliable driver.

What can I expect during the recovery period?

Some inflammation is common after surgery and subsides after a few days. Since breast augmentation with a lift is an invasive surgical procedure, patients are expected to take some time off and rest after treatment. Patients are generally able to resume normal day-to-day activities after about one week but should avoid strenuous activities for at least 2 – 6 weeks to optimize healing and recovery. Within a few months, the breasts will settle into their new, natural-looking position.

Are results long-lasting?

Breast augmentation results can last for many years if there are no future complications. Lift results can potentially be influenced by age and weight fluctuations. Consult with Dr. Cuzalina about any concerns you may have.
