Castellano Cosmetic Surgery Center


Breast Augmentation and Lift

At our practice in Tampa, many women come to us seeking a very specific look for their breast augmentation: high, firm profile often seen in younger women who are naturally curvy.

While breast implants can boost your cup size, they won’t improve your breast placement or position. Combining a breast augmentation with a breast lift can bring out the best in both procedures for a better final result.

There are a number of reasons for women to consider a more comprehensive breast enhancement. Here are some of the most common reason our patients seek breast augmentation with lift surgery.

  • Increase volume as well as a change in placement
  • Restore breast appearance after pregnancy, nursing or weight loss
  • Improve asymmetry between their breasts.
  • Acheive a more proportionate figure.

Request a consultation to meet with Dr. Castellano and learn more about your options for combining a breast lift with your implants.

A native of Tampa Bay, Dr. Castellano is a skilled and highly dedicated cosmetic surgeon specializing in breast enhancment procedures. His primary goal is ensuring a positive experience along with beautiful results.

When Combining a Breast Augmentation and Lift Is Right

The best candidates for a breast augmentation and lift should be in good physical and mental health overall and have realistic expectations about the results of their procedure. You should also think about your preferred level of physical activity, and whether you may want to have more children or breastfeed in the future.

There are a few different grades of ptosis (sagging) that can occur in the breasts, and not all of them require a lift with your implants.

Generally speaking, you may be a candidate for a combination lift with implants if your nipples are positioned at or below the inframammary fold (the natural crease underneath the breast) or if your nipples point downward.

More about Breast Augmentation and Lift

Your Breast Augmentation and Lift Options

There are a number of decisions that need to be made before your breast augmentation and lift, including the type of breast implant, the size of implant and the preferred surgical technique to give you the best outcome.

Dr. Castellano will explain the differences between saline and silicone gel breast implants so you can choose the implant type that’s best for you, as well as talking about your new breast size.

He may have you try on external breast implant sizers so that you can get an idea of what the different sizes of implant will look like on your body.

Finally, he’ll go over the surgical techniques he can use to achieve the best results, and explain more about what you can expect during your surgery and recovery.

What to Expect

During Your Consultation

Any breast enhancement begins with a consultation with Dr. Castellano. During this initial discussion, Dr. Castellano will talk to you about your ideal results and conduct a physical evaluation to ensure that combining a breast lift with implants will help you meet those goals.

During Your Procedure

The procedure itself will take between 1 and 2 hours, not including the pre-surgical preparation time or your postoperative recovery. Most often, breast lift incisions are made around the areola and then extend vertically down to the breast crease.

The nipples and areola can be resized and centered as part of your breast enhancement as well.

The specific incision placement may vary depending on your anatomy and the level of correction needed. While some scarring on the breast is unavoidable, this should fade significantly over time.

Recovery and Results

While your breasts will still be affected by age and gravity, a breast augmentation and lift should give you long-lasting results.

Recovery after a breast lift with implants is similar to the recovery from either surgery performed on its own. You may notice discomfort for the first few days, and Dr. Castellano will have you wear a special support bra full-time for the first few weeks.

Although every woman’s body responds to surgery differently, most patients find they can return to their normal daily routine within the first week and resume more vigorous activities after about a month.

In the first year after surgery, you should notice that your scars fade dramatically, often continuing to improve well into the second year after your procedure.

Your lifted breasts will feel firmer and sit higher on your chest, while implants add volume for a curvier look. Large or downward-pointed nipples should be smaller and placed more centrally.

With Other Procedures

A combination breast augmentation and lift is often performed as part of a mommy makeover, typically with body contouring procedures like a tummy tuck and liposuction as well.

Dr. Castellano will talk with you about your goals in more detail so he can recommend the combination of procedures that he feels will work best for your body.
