Breast Lift with Implants

In cases where larger and perkier breasts are desired, a breast lift with implants in Baton Rouge may be the ideal surgical solution. Women who are interested in breast-enhancement procedures often have multiple aspects of their breasts that they are not pleased with, including size and perkiness.

Breast augmentation is designed specifically to enhance the size of the breasts, and a breast lift is specifically for patients who want shapelier breasts with a perkier and more youthful appearance. When these two procedures are combined in a single surgical session, it is called a breast lift with implants.

This procedure is excellent for women who have always been unhappy with the appearance of their breasts, women whose appearance has been affected by aging, and women who want to restore their breasts after pregnancy.

What Is a Breast Lift with Implants?

A breast lift with implants, or breast augmentation and mastopexy, elevates the breast tissue and repositions the nipple while also increasing volume to create a more full and youthful appearance. The effects of normal aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss all contribute to breast sagging and loss of superior fullness. Women who have experienced these life events can better achieve their desired outcome using this procedure combination.

Ideal Candidates

Women who are not satisfied with the volume, shape, and firmness of their breasts are the best candidates for a breast lift with implants. Women who lost volume in their breasts due to pregnancy and breastfeeding are excellent candidates for this procedure.

Augmentation mastopexy can also be an appropriate solution for women with sagging breasts or asymmetrical breasts.

It is important for the candidates to be healthy and physically fit to undergo the surgery. Non-smokers are preferred, since smoking can have negative effects on the healing progress. Smokers will need to quit weeks in advance of the date of surgery and must avoid smoking during recovery.

Patients must have realistic expectations from their breast augmentation with lift procedure. Candidates must have no plans of being pregnant or experiencing significant weight changes any time soon.

Before & After Photos

Initial Consultation

After performing an exam and reviewing pertinent health history, your surgeon may order lab work, a mammogram, and other pre-operative tests as deemed necessary. This is all done to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure and reduces the risk of experiencing complications as a result of the breast augmentation with lift.

Lastly, you will meet with a surgery coordinator to discuss fees, surgery scheduling options, and make a pre-operative appointment to meet with the nurse for final preparation prior to surgery.

During your consultation, we will discuss your goals for your breast lift with implants. You must disclose any medications or supplements you are currently taking, along with any cosmetic procedures you have undergone. We will also evaluate your medical records.


Your procedure will be performed in our AAAASF accredited office surgical suite with a qualified anesthesia provider. Operative time in most cases is approximately 1-2 hours. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, and patients are discharged home the same day.

The procedure is typically performed all at once, but in some cases, this may not be possible. The breast lift with implants procedure will start with administration of anesthesia. Once the anesthesia has taken full effect, incisions will be made in the selected areas. The breast implants will be inserted first. This will allow the surgeon to see how the implants look so that they can make the proper adjustments during the lift portion of the procedure. At the end of the surgery, incisions will be closed using surgical sutures.

Combining a breast lift and augmentation in one surgical session results in only a single recovery period. Your nurse will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions at your pre-operative visit and will review them again prior to your discharge home. Adhering to these instructions is essential for making sure your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.

A special surgical bra will need to be worn during the first part of the recovery process after your breast augmentation with lift. This bra will provide additional support and protection for the healing tissues. Swelling and bruising will be present but should fade away over the coming days.

Recovery time is about two weeks, and most patients take pain medication for a few days. Patients can typically return to work within 1-2 weeks, but heavy lifting, pushing or pulling should be avoided for the first 8-12 weeks following your surgery. Best results can be seen after all swelling has dissipated and the implants have settled.
