With aging, pregnancy, and weight loss come major changes in the shape and size of the breasts. This can cause self-consciousness and social inhibition, reducing your wardrobe choices due to a poor fit in swimwear, eveningwear, and everyday clothing.
Breast augmentation surgery with implants helps to increase the bust size, restoring a feminine, attractive physique. However, by itself, it cannot address the breast ptosis, or drooping, that is so common in women who have given birth.
Dr. Rottman performs breast augmentation in combination with mastopexy to comprehensively contour the upper body, delivering beautifully natural results that help you reclaim your figure.
What is breast augmentation with lift?
A breast augmentation combined with mastopexy helps women to obtain a perkier, rounder, and more youthful breast profile. By adding breast lift surgery to your enhancement procedure, Dr. Rottman is able to address downturned nipples and create a bust that is aesthetically pleasing in every way.
The implants combat the volume loss that occurs with aging and after pregnancy, while mastopexy ensures the breasts protrude at the right angle. Together, breast augmentation and breast lift make a powerful combination that can revitalize your look and jumpstart your confidence, both professionally and socially.
How is the procedure performed?
Surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. During your consultation, you and the doctor will decide the best placement for your incisions. There are several options, but the most common is the inframammary folds (breast creases). Here, the scars are well-hidden by the bra line, and the surgeon has ample access to reshape the chest.
Once a capsule is created within the chest wall, the implants are positioned either above or below the pec muscles according to your customized treatment plan. The nipples are then moved to a location where they appear the most natural and attractive. Excess skin, fat, and tissue are trimmed to create a firm, flattering breast presentation. Once these goals are completed, the incisions are sealed with sutures, and the patient is placed in the recovery suite.

Who makes an ideal candidate?
Women who have given birth often experience major changes in their breast appearance, from sagging and volume loss to low-hanging nipples. Aging can also play a role in transforming the breasts. If you have noticed a loss of breast firmness, suppleness, and symmetry, breast augmentation with lift may be the ideal solution for your cosmetic concerns.
Good candidates for surgery are healthy, both physically and mentally, and they are not currently struggling with any significant health issues. If they smoke, they are willing to quit both before and after surgery for at least a month or more. Patients pursuing breast augmentation with mastopexy should be at or close to their ideal body weight, and they should be realistic in their hopes for improvement based on their private consultation with Dr. Rottman.
What can I expect from my recovery?
After a breast augmentation with lift procedure, patients can expect to experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These side effects typically resolve quickly, but you will receive pain medication prescribed by the doctor to help make the process easier. Most clients can resume light activities within 5-7 days, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for around 6 weeks.
You will need to wear a compression garment, which helps to reduce postoperative swelling and preserve your new improved breast shape. Drains may also be placed to escort excess blood and fluids out of the body as you heal.
Dr. Rottman will follow up with you regularly to make sure your recovery is progressing smoothly and that you are satisfied with your results.

Breast Augmentation with Lift - Frequently Asked Questions
Is breast augmentation with mastopexy safe?
Both saline and silicone breast implants are approved by the FDA. Dr. Rottman is committed to maintaining his patients’ safety at all times and practices a meticulously conservative technique to help minimize complications and risks. However, it’s essential that women with implants undergo regular follow-up visits with their surgeon to monitor their health over time.
Do my breast implants need to be replaced at a certain time?
Breast implants usually last 10-15 years; however, several factors will play a role in their longevity. These include weight fluctuations, aging, hormone levels, and whether you get pregnant or not. It is common for women to undergo a breast implant exchange procedure at some point down the line, but breast implants do not need to be exchanged unless they present a problem.
Can I have a breast augmentation with lift if I plan to get pregnant later?
If you wish to get pregnant in the future, let Dr. Rottman know ahead of time. There is no medical reason why a woman can’t undergo breast augmentation and then have a baby at a later date. However, childbirth can compromise your aesthetic results, necessitating a revision procedure.
