What is Breast Augmentation with a Lift?
As women get older, they may lose fullness in their breasts, while others may develop excess skin on their chest. Some women experience both and are left with deflated breasts that sag. If you would like to increase breast volume while also getting rid of excess skin, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin can perform breast augmentation surgery with a lift (mastopexy). This procedure starts by removing excess skin from the chest and then adding saline or silicone implants to get to your desired breast size. The surgery addresses multiple concerns, such as size, position, and shape to give you younger, perkier-looking breasts. Schedule a consultation at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, OK to talk about your unique concerns and goals. Our experienced staff can help you determine if a combination breast augmentation with a lift is the right choice for you.

Breast Augmentation with Lift Reviews
"What can I say...except THANK YOU to Dr. Caplin and staff for helping me get to where I want to be! I wanted to downsize, so Dr. Caplin did a revision of a previous doctor's work (lift with implant) and the results are AMAZING. I also had some other work, but if you can't tell, why would I?!? Dr. Caplin is so extremely adept and skilled at what she does and legitimately cares about her patients - do yourself a favor and get that 2nd or 3rd opinion from Dr. Caplin, you won't be disappointed! Update: Still amazing! The injectors and Ann the esthetician are wonderful, staff is welcoming and it's 2023 this kind of thing isn't a secret anymore! Get the #Botox!"- L.L. / Google / Jun 08, 2023

"I had a surgery in Amarillo, TX, that went wrong with a plastic surgeon local, I was afraid I could not find a surgeon, to treat me, I searched for a surgeon, more qualified than a plastic surgeon, and Cosmetic Affiliates came up, I read the difference between a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon, there is a difference, I could tell there was a difference, in the consultation and the consultation that I had with the plastic surgeon in Amarillo. As of now, it’s worth consulting with a cosmetic surgeon. I loved meeting with Dr. Chaplin, I will keep you posted Post-Op, on the positive note, she has her own Surgery Center, so you don’t have to work with a public Surgery Center, and her pricing was better. I should have thought out of the box, and looked at OKC to begin with!"- R.M. / Google / Feb 17, 2023
"I was surprised how quickly they could take me on as a patient. Financing the operation was a simple process. The surgery went well and the result looks nice, even better than I had imagined. I have a lower than average tolerance for pain and ended up needing more pain medication than is normally given for this procedure. Dr. Naveen was able to relieve my pain without having prescribe narcotics. I can return to work soon and I'm feeling so much more comfortable in my own skin and I don't have to focus on my loose, flabby areas anymore. It's hard to describe what a relief having this surgery is. Eventhough there is some pain involved, it was well worth it. Can't thank Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates enough for putting up with me. thank you! I'm very grateful!"- K.E. / Google / Apr 06, 2023
What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation W/ Lift
As the name implies, this procedure is able to offer the complete benefits of both breast augmentation and a breast lift. Our staff will first perform the lift, which ensures that the breasts do not appear saggy or droopy. Once this is complete, we will begin enhancing the size and/or shape of the breast by either transferring fat into the area or inserting breast implants. The exact method used here depends on the patients own preferences and goals. By the end of the procedure, patients will have fuller, perkier breasts that look more alive than they perhaps ever have before.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Augmentation with Lift?
There are several factors that may have you considering breast augmentation combined with a lift at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates. It is a great approach if you want to fully rejuvenate your breasts while also improving your skin elasticity. If you are experiencing sagging of the breasts due to natural aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss, this procedure can enhance the fullness of your breasts and elevate their position. Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin can usually assess if a breast lift by itself will produce your desired results, or if both a lift and implants are needed to reach your goals.
How is Breast Augmentation with a Lift Performed?
Prior to the procedure, our surgeons will go over breast implant options with you before the surgery, so your implants can look and feel as you expect them to. A combination breast surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. Usually, the lift portion of the surgery is done first. During this process, an incision will be made under the natural fold of the breast, and any excess skin will be removed in order to tighten the surrounding tissue. In certain patients, the nipple and/or areola will need to be repositioned to fit your new breast shape and size. Once the lift is complete, our staff will begin by either transferring fat from one area of your body into the breast or inserting breast implants, depending on what you've agreed upon during your consultation.
What Can I Expect from Breast Augmentation with a Lift?
The recovery timeframe for this particular procedure will vary from patient to patient; however, you should feel well enough to return to your day-to-day activities within about seven days. We typically recommend for patients to refrain from any exercise or strenuous activity for about 2 – 6 weeks. There may also be some inflammation following your surgery that may last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your implants will begin to settle into their final position within a few months when you will be able to enjoy your results.

Breast Augmentation with a Lift FAQ
How much does breast augmentation with a lift cost?
The cost of a breast augmentation with a lift will be determined by multiple factors, including whether you choose implants (silicone or saline) or a fat transfer. Additionally, the complexity of the lift will help determine your cost. In your initial consultation, Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin will develop a personalized surgical plan that includes cost estimates. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates accepts a number of payment forms, including low-interest medical financing.
Will breast augmentation with a lift correct sagging?
Breast augmentation with a lift improves the volume of your chest while also addressing sag by removing loose skin. The lift portion of your surgery will also adjust the position of your native breast tissue, so your results are firm and perky. This is important since augmenting breasts with even mild sagging can create a less than ideal result if a breast lift isn't done to address the sag. If moderate to severe sagging is present, a lift should be performed, and then implants or a fat transfer can be added.
Which incision is best for my surgery?
Incision patterns for breast surgery have become more advanced, with certain techniques being used to help reduce the appearance of scarring. The actual incision type that is best for your surgery will depend on the severity of the sag and the type of implants being used. To correct moderate to severe sag, an anchor-shaped incision pattern is most effective. When creating your surgical plan, one of our surgeons will explain incision patterns and what is best for your needs. No matter what method is used, we create incisions carefully — so your results look natural.
How long will my results last?
If you do not have dramatic weight changes or become pregnant, your results from a breast augmentation with a lift can last many years. Although both saline and silicone implants are made to last for a long time, they do need to be examined regularly to check for issues. During the surgery, your surgeon will place the implants using a method that minimizes future breast sag. This will help your results last longer.
