Breast augmentation is by far the most highly sought-after plastic surgery procedure for people across the globe. Whether done for medical or aesthetic reasons, people have access to many different methods of breast augmentations. One of these forms is a breast lift with implants.
At the office of Dr. Brent, we want our patients to be as informed as possible. One of the most common questions our patients ask us is whether you can get a breast lift with implants. Implants serve to give the breasts a bigger, fuller look, and typically a breast lift is a completely different procedure altogether. But can they be done at the same time? Let’s explore these options together, and we can find out whether this is a viable option for you.
Thankfully, it is quite possible to get a breast lift with implants. While these are still considered two different procedures, they are combined in one session by very skilled surgeons. Understanding why these two are different requires knowing the key differences in the procedures. Let’s break it down:
- A breast lift moves the nipples and areolas up higher on the breast to create a fuller, more perky look. Surgeons can also reduce the amount of sagging skin to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the breasts.
- Breast implants come in three different options: saline, silicone, or gummy bear. These different implants are surgically inserted into the breasts and augment the look for something larger or fuller.
There are definitely ways to combine these two procedures in the same surgery. Next, we’ll take a look at a couple of the advantages of combining them into one.
Get More For Less
Obviously, it costs less to have one procedure done than two separate ones. But that isn’t the only reason you should seek this option out. According to plasticsurgery.org, you can even reduce the amount of implant you’re getting since the lift will enhance your look on its own.
There can be pros and cons to having implants, and for a lot of people, the idea of having less material inside the breasts can be more appealing than getting the full implant size. By combining these two procedures, it makes the process of shaping your breasts easier and far more customizable.
Determining Your Candidacy for a Breast Lift with Implants

The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and Dr. Brent have a clear and simple list of requirements that would qualify you as an excellent patient for the combined implant and lift procedure.
