Breast Augmentation with Lift

Breast Lift with Implants in Ann Arbor, MI

Create bigger, perkier breasts by combining breast lift surgery with implants. These two procedures complement each other beautifully by allowing women to create their ideal breasts with one surgery, rather than two. This combination treatment addresses breast sagging and increases breast size.

Since pregnancy can change both the size and shape of the breasts, a breast lift with implants is a popular addition to our mommy makeover. Patients also choose this procedure to restore the appearance of the breasts after weight loss or aging.

If you want bigger breasts and have breast sagging, contact Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery to learn more about our breast augmentation/breast lift combination. Our board-certified plastic surgeons are well-known throughout MIchigan for creating stunning breast transformations.

Can I Avoid a Breast Lift?

Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery specializes in the use of Gummy bear tear drop implants.  This implant in some cases can lift the breasts internally without breast lift scars.  This procedure is reserved for people that are in between the need for a breast lift versus an implant alone.  Also, these implants can be placed subfascially which is an innovative technique developed in Brazil to increase the internal lifting ability.


This patient had some natural hang to her breasts.  She was willing to sacrifice a bit of fullness in the top part of her breast for a natural look without visible scars.  The Gummy bear tear drop implants were used to internally lift her breasts.

Breast Augmentation with Lift: Insider Tips from the Surgeons at Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery

  • If you need a lift, get a lift – Breast implants do not correct breast sagging independently. Placing implants into sagging breasts will not lift them. If your breasts sag, ask your surgeon if you need a breast lift with your implants.
  • Work with a top plastic surgeon – Getting a breast lift with implants is more complicated than getting breast implants on their own. For natural-looking results, choose a surgeon that performs many breast surgeries each year. Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery is the top breast augmentation provider in Michigan with Mentor implants.
  • Explore your options for implant type – There are three options for breast implants: saline, silicone, and cohesive silicone (gummy bear). Ask your surgeon about the pros and cons of each option to find your best fit.
  • If you have undergone weight loss surgery, your surgery will most likely have to be in two stages to achieve optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation with Lift

The duration of breast lift with implants surgery varies from patient to patient, depending on the extent of each individual procedure. The use of certain surgical techniques and approaches is one of the most significant factors that influence this aspect. Typically, the surgery may take two to three hours. After your initial consultation, the experts at Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery will explain how much time they estimate for your surgery to be completed.

During your breast lift with implants surgery, you will be under the effects of anesthesia. This ensures you will not feel any pain throughout the surgical procedure. But similar to other surgeries, breast lift with implants may cause soreness and discomfort once your anesthetic starts wearing off. 

After your surgery, the Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery team will prescribe pain medications to help ensure your comfort. You can stop taking these medications once your pain and discomfort subsides, typically in the next few days to a week.

Everyone reacts differently during recovery following surgery. Typically, patients may resume working one to two weeks after a breast augmentation with implants. However, you follow the personalized advice of your surgeon before returning to work to ensure your wellbeing. At Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery, our surgeons will guide you through resuming all normal activities after assessing your health and recovery.

After your surgery, you may experience some swelling and bruising around the treatment area. Typically, these side effects take one to two weeks to resolve. Once these side effects subside, you may see significant differences in breast shape, size, and appearance. However, it might take three to six months for you to see the full extent of your breast lift with augmentation results.

You can combine other surgeries with a breast lift and augmentation to redefine your figure. A tummy tuck and liposuction are two of the most popular surgeries that are often performed with this procedure. Together, these treatments are typically called a mommy makeover.
