Breast Augmentation Lifts in Beverly Hills
Restore Your Youthful Fullness with Help from a CA Plastic Surgeon
For women who have lost breast fullness as well as youthful breast position, a breast augmentation and lift can make a dramatic improvement. Also known as augmentation mastopexy, this procedure combines the surgical placement of breast implants with the shaping techniques of a breast lift.
Is this Procedure Right for You?
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Aboolian may recommend the breast augmentation and lift if you present indications for both procedures, such as breast ptosis (drooping) and lack of breast fullness or size. A woman’s breast shape and position will change over the years, often leading to a noticeable reduction in size and a lowered position. In these cases, a breast augmentation with a lift may be ideal.

How The Procedure Works: Augmentation-Mastopexy
Both procedures can be performed in a single operation or they may be separated into two stages. The first stage is typically the breast augmentation, which uses saline or silicone implants to restore fullness and enlarge your breast size. The implants can be placed above or below the chest muscle, depending on your body type and individual circumstances.
After the augmentation, Dr. Aboolian evaluates the degree of breast sagging to determine the proper technique for a lift. He may choose a technique such as the periareolar technique, with an incision around the areola; or an inverted T technique, with an incision shaped like an anchor. In both techniques, Dr. Aboolian removes excess skin and tissue to reshape and elevate the breasts.
At the end of the surgery, the doctor closes the incisions with sutures, skin adhesive and/or surgical tape.
What to Expect After Breast Augmentation and Lift
Although each patient’s experience varies, it is prudent to expect a slightly longer recovery period than either breast augmentation or the breast lift performed alone. Dr. Aboolian will provide you with a special surgical bra to wear during recovery, along with pain medications to control discomfort. After about 10 days, sutures can be removed during a follow-up appointment.
Risks of Breast Augmentation and Lift
Like all surgical procedures, there is a risk of complications. Possible adverse events include hematoma, seroma, changes in nipple sensation, capsular contracture, delayed healing, scarring, implant rupture, or unsatisfactory cosmetic outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Aboolian can explain these events and their likelihood of occurring in greater detail.
