Recent studies show that 71% of women are dissatisfied with their breast appearance. Over the years, the breasts undergo various changes that can affect the way they look, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, and genetics. Many of these changes can cause them to lose shape, size, and elasticity with time. Fortunately, cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation with a lift can help reshape, resize, and even and restore muscle elasticity to your breasts.
Breast augmentation is a procedure that increases the size and enhances the contour and position of the breast for a more youthful and improved appearance. If you are looking for a breast augmentation with lift in Nashville, reach out to a qualified breast surgeon at Plastic Surgery Affiliates for guidance.
What Is a Breast Augmentation with Lift?
Breast augmentation with lift combines two procedures in one surgery:
The first is a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy—a procedure that involves lifting and reshaping the breast tissues and surrounding skin to give them a more lifted, youthful appearance.
The second procedure is a breast augmentation where the breast is enhanced with silicone or saline implants to provide upper pole fullness. The combined procedure will both enlarge and lift the breasts for a youthful, perky look.
Why You May Choose a Breast Augmentation with Lift
Even though breast augmentation can change your breast size, implants alone may not completely correct the sagging of the breasts. Similarly, a breast lift can elevate your breasts, but the procedure does not increase your breast volume or upper pole fullness. Breast experts recommend combining the two procedures to achieve the following benefits:
In one surgery, the procedure will reduce loose or sagging skin and restore volume for a youthful appearance
Improve your breast symmetry and nipple position
Breast enhancement can add volume and curves to smaller breasts
The procedure can help your body look more proportional overall

Breast Augmentation with Lift Pre-op Appointment
Once you have scheduled your breast implants with lift surgery in Nashville, Dr. MaDan will set up a pre-op appointment a week or two before the surgery. During this appointment, you will go over the logistics of the surgery, have your before photos taken, and get prescriptions written for your post-op medications.
What Happens During Breast Augmentation with Lift Surgery?
Dr. MaDan will use different incision techniques to achieve the breast lift procedure. The type of the technique will be determined by the following:
The degree your breasts have sagged
The shape and size of your breasts
The position of your areolas
Your skin elasticity and any extra skin
On the surgery day, you are given general anesthesia and the skin to be removed is assessed. The implants will be placed behind your pectoralis chest muscles or breast tissue. Once the permanent implants are placed, Dr. MaDan reshapes the breast and moves the nipple to the most projecting part of the breast. Once the new nipple location is determined, the remaining skin is tightened around the breast and incisions closed with absorbable sutures.
The estimated time for recovery is around 14 days before any activity is permitted. Dr. MaDan will advise you can do and what to avoid during this time. Final results should be visible within a few months.
