Our breast augmentation with lift in Houston surgery is recommended for women who want to both enhance their volume and elevate a sagging chest.

What can this procedure do for you?

  • Elevate sagging breasts
  • Reposition drooping nipples
  • Boost breast volume
  • Create a full and perky chest

FAQ: Why are my breasts sagging?

Sagging breasts is a very common issue – especially as women age. It happens for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Gravity
  • Genetics
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Breastfeeding and pregnancy
  • The natural aging process

Why combine your breast augmentation with a lift?

On its own, a breast lift does not add volume to your chest. Conversely, a breast augmentation can’t necessarily address excessive sagging on its own either. As such, our breast augmentation with a lift in Houston procedure not only improves the shape of your breasts, but also the placement of your chest and nipples – resulting in a full, balanced and youthful figure.

The implants + lift procedure

Your breast implant and lift procedure will be performed in Dr. Wiener’s AAAASF accredited in-office operating room. The entire surgery should take about two hours.

STEP 1: Anesthesia

Your procedure will begin with a board-certified physician anesthesiologist administering intravenous anesthesia. From there, Dr. Wiener will place local anesthetic nerve blocks around your ribs to provide maximum pain relief after your operation.

STEP 2: The Implants

Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Wiener will perform your breast augmentation. After making an incision either around the nipple or along the breast crease, he will create a pocket and insert a sizer to ensure that the space can accommodate your implants. From there, he will place your silicone, saline or gummy bear implants and check them for size, appearance and symmetry.

Choosing breast Implants for your Procedure

Prior to surgery, you will need to complete the critical task of selecting your breast implants. In addition to choosing between silicone, gummy bear and saline, you will also need to settle on a cup size and decide whether you want round or shaped implants.

STEP 3: The Lift

Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Wiener will perform your breast augmentation. After making an incision either around the nipple or along the breast crease, he will create a pocket and insert a sizer to ensure that the space can accommodate your implants. From there, he will place your silicone, saline or gummy bear implants and check them for size, appearance and symmetry.

Standard

Ideal for small breasts, the standard lift requires an incision along the areola, down the front of the breast and along the breast crease.

Donut

The donut lift is best for Houston women with large breasts. A minimal incision is made around the areola, which results in very little scarring.

Lollipop

The lollipop technique provides a moderate lift. It involves an incision around the nipple and down the front of the breast.

The recovery

A breast lift and implants combination surgery typically requires about two weeks of downtime for our Houston patients. During this period, it’s important to walk around the house frequently to prevent blood clots and avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity. Dr. Wiener will provide you with more specific instructions during your post-operative appointments.

Managing your post-operative pain

Dr. Wiener goes to great lengths to minimize any pain after breast surgery by placing nerve blocks around your chest. This ensures a virtually pain-free 24 hours so that you can focus exclusively on healing. Once the nerve blocks wear off, you can manage any residual discomfort by:

  • Applying cold compresses
  • Remaining elevated at all times – even when resting
  • Taking your pain medication as directed
