Why Have a Breast Lift with Implants?

If you would like to increase your breast size, restore volume to sagging breasts, or correct sagging, a lift with breast augmentation implants are a good option to consider. In fact, a lift with implants is a more popular breast enhancement technique than a breast lift alone, as the majority of patients considering a lift have also lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss.

There are a number of benefits for having a lift with breast implants:

  • Breast implant shape, size, and profile can be tailored to achieve the breast contour you want and that looks most natural with your proportions.
  • Having a breast lift at the same time as a breast implant procedure can correct sagging for a firmer, more youthful contour.
  • If you’ve lost significant volume, there may not be enough breast tissue left to recreate an aesthetically pleasing shape; implants can add back the volume, allowing for a better result.

A Breast Lift Surgery with Implants Can Help Clothing Fit the Way You Like

A breast lift with augmentation in Charlotte involves three basic changes that work together to create your desired look:

  • Eliminating sagging by removing excess, stretched skin
  • Creating a more symmetrical, perky breast shape
  • Restoring fullness with the breast implants of your choice: silicone implants or saline implants

So do I really need a lift too?

This depends on your personal goals and the amount of sagging you have. A breast augmentation procedure alone can provide some improvement, but it cannot defy gravity. If you have a more severe amount of sagging and stretched skin, you’ll probably be most pleased with the results by having a breast lift as well to remove the excess skin.

This will help to ensure that the implants sit in the correct position and your breasts maintain the desired shape.

"My fear before (breast augmentation) surgery was that “I don’t want to look like I have fake breasts”. Now, one year later, I look very natural, even my relatives couldn’t tell I had breast augmentation."

Options for Improving “Lift” Without Implants

Not everyone wants or needs a traditional breast lift to achieve their desired results. In fact, Dr. Ditesheim prefers to avoid breast lift incisions if possible.

For minor sagging, he can use an implant placement technique during breast surgery that will allow the implant to sit a little higher on the chest, with the nipple facing forward. Depending on the patient, subfascial or submuscular placement may be most appropriate for saline or silicone implants.

Subfascial Implant Placement

Placing the implants above the pectoral muscle, but beneath the fascia—the connective tissue lining that separates the breast tissue from the muscle—can achieve beautiful results for many patients, giving the implant, whether saline or silicone breast implants, greater coverage while allowing for a placement that offers a modest lifting effect.

Submuscular Implant Placement

In patients with good skin tone whose breasts have “settled” a little lower than they would like, a submuscular implant placement can help restore fullness in the upper pole with a very smooth transition from the upper chest to the breast. This can give the breasts a more lifted, shapely appearance without additional scarring.

Scar-Minimizing Breast Lift Techniques

A common concern for our Charlotte patients considering a breast lift with augmentation are the scars. While it’s true that a breast lift requires different and sometimes longer incisions than breast augmentation procedures, Dr. Ditesheim specializes in a “short scar” technique that other plastic surgeons don’t offer, which involves only two incisions: one around the natural edge of the areola and one vertically from the areola down to the breast crease. You can learn more about the incision techniques and surgery details during a consultation with Dr. Ditesheim.

Breast Lift Recovery

Recovery from surgery is surprisingly quick for most of our combined breast implant and lift patients. You may have some initial discomfort along the incision lines, but the pain is usually mild. You’ll be encouraged to move your arms right away, and patients typically go back to their jobs within 1-3 days, depending on the extent of surgery. After a few weeks, you’ll be able to gradually return to your exercise routine.

We want to make sure that your surgical experience and recovery is as pleasant as possible. Our experienced, caring staff will guide you throughout the surgery process, providing detailed instructions on how to ensure a rapid, comfortable recovery, and checking in with you frequently during this time.

Although it varies by manufacturer, most breast implants come with warranties for replacement in cases of complications that require the implants to be removed


Breast implants are not intended to be permanent devices and most last between 10 and 20 years before needing to be removed or replaced.


Capsular contracture develops gradually and can cause the breast to feel stiff, change shape, and become painful over time. Dr. Ditesheim can confirm the diagnosis during an appointment.
