Breast Lift with Implants
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, can restore a youthful position and shape to breasts that sag due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss. However, a large percentage of women lack the volume they once had, or would like larger breasts with their breast lift procedure. For these women, Dr. Jack Fisher combines breast implants with breast lift at his Nashville, TN plastic surgery practice.

Choosing Breast Lift with Implants
At your consultation, Dr. Fisher's first objective is to get to know you, your concerns, and your expectations. He will take the time to answer all of your questions and inform you of exactly what the breast lift and breast augmentation procedures involve. Based on this discussion and a physical examination, Dr. Fisher will offer his recommendation for the best approach to your procedure, including incision type and breast implant type.
A breast lift alone can restore a more youthful shape, feel, and appearance to stretched, drooping breasts. However, many women with sagging breasts have also lost breast volume. Trimming the skin and repositioning tissue may ultimately result in a slightly smaller breast. Many women come to Dr. Fisher for breast augmentation at his Nashville practice. Breast augmentation can add volume to the breasts, but does not correct sagging. In fact, augmentation without a lift can actually cause the breasts to sag more. Often, the most complete and satisfying breast enhancement involves combining a breast lift with breast augmentation. Dr. Fisher specializes in creating beautiful, natural looking results through this approach.
While both breast augmentation and breast lift surgery are common procedures, combining the two takes specialized expertise. As a board-certified plastic surgeon and breast enhancement specialist, Dr. Fisher has provided pleasing results for women who have a variety of breast sizes and shapes. This procedure requires sound judgment and an aesthetic sense when addressing the associated challenges, which may include:
- Determining whether the patient is a good candidate for the combination procedure in terms of the degree of breast sagging and size of implants desired
- Removing enough skin to lift the breasts, while leaving room for the implants
- Choosing the breast implant size that will make the lifted breasts look full, yet natural
- Reshaping and repositioning the nipples
- Performing the procedure with the fewest, shortest incisions possible
If you decide to have a breast lift with implants, it's important to choose your surgeon carefully to avoid disappointing results and the need for a revision procedure.
Your Surgery & Recovery
At your preoperative appointment, Dr. Fisher will give you detailed instructions to follow before and after your surgery. The more closely you follow these instructions, the better your chances for a smooth and uneventful surgery and recovery. This outpatient procedure is performed using general anesthesia at our surgery center for your optimal care and safety. Combining breast implants with breast lift surgery typically takes between 2 and 3 hours to complete.
Dr. Fisher will remove your sutures in approximately 1 week, but you may be able to return to work and light activities sooner. You will need to take it easy for a few weeks following your surgery, with no heavy lifting or rigorous activity for approximately 3 weeks. You will also wear a snug-fitting surgical bra to help with comfort, swelling and healing. As incisions fade and swelling subsides, you will see your shapely new look emerge.
