Which Breast Procedure Is Right for Me?

For many women, restoring your perky breasts with a breast lift is all it takes to get back into a swimsuit or feel confident again. In other cases, a breast augmentation with lift may be the best option. Dr. Awada can determine the best breast enhancement treatment for you by meeting with you for a consultation.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Augmentation with Lift?
The best candidates for a breast augmentation with lift are healthy individuals who want enhanced breasts in terms of both size and shape. This is a great option for those who want to correct sagging breasts due to aging or childbirth. The cosmetic procedure also allows small-framed individuals to achieve younger and fuller breasts.
A breast augmentation with lift is highly recommended for those with realistic expectations. Before undergoing the procedure, patients must understand that results may not be the same for everyone.
Breast augmentation with lift candidates must also have a BMI of 30 and below. This will prevent complications during the procedure and recovery.
Smokers may experience complications during the healing process. Stop smoking for at least 4 to 6 weeks before and after the procedure in order to avoid these potential complications. A smooth and quick recovery can also be experienced if drinking alcohol is avoided for at least 48 hours before and after the procedure.
Your Breast Augmentation with Lift Consultation
A consultation for a breast augmentation with lift involves a conversation about your appearance goals. Dr. Awada will discuss surgical techniques that can be used to help you meet your goals. You are encouraged to mention your preferences and ask questions about the possible results.
Be ready to take a few lab tests to confirm your eligibility for the procedure. Inform the doctor regarding any allergies to anesthesia or sedation. Once you are approved for the procedure, Dr. Awada will prepare a surgical plan for a comfortable and safe breast augmentation with lift.
What Can You Expect from a Breast Lift
Breasts are sisters, not twins. Therefore, when considering a breast lift procedure, Dr. Awada will work with you to understand the expected outcomes for your specific situation.
Generally, breast lifts consist of reshaping breast tissue to increase firmness and improve contour. The nipple is repositioned, and the areola is reshaped to restore a youthful position and look. The removal of extra skin helps to restore firmness in the breasts.
Dr. Mariam Awada has conducted breast lift procedures using a limited incision, short scar, minimally invasive technique. Some patients qualify to have a scarless breast lift, while others may need a camouflaged incision. For a more extensive breast lift, you may need a lollipop, anchor, or Crescent incision.
Dr. Awada has performed thousands of breast lifts and has helped many Metro-Detroit women regain a youthful look. With their years of experience, she and her Southeast Michigan-based staff can help you understand all options and make the right decision to meet your goals.
Breast Lift with Silicone or Saline Implants
A breast lift alone will not typically add a lot of volume to your figure. Women looking to reshape and add size will often have an implant procedure performed alongside a breast lift.
Pairing these procedures has the benefit of restoring a more youthful figure and adding a more voluptuous look. Silicon and saline implant options are available, and during your consultation, Dr. Awada will help you understand which the best solution is to meet your desired goals.
Breast Lift with 100% Natural Fat Transfer?
If you seek a fuller result to accompany your new perkier look, a natural fat transfer may be the right option for you. By using your own body fat to contour and soften your breast lift, you’ll get a fuller, softer result, not to mention the bonus of a little fat removal from someplace else.
Fat transfer is a great way to get an extra enhancement from your procedure without the complications associated with a traditional silicone or saline implant. You’re going to love the results we get.
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Breast Augmentation with Lift FAQs
Can I have breast lift surgery while I am breastfeeding?
No. You should not undergo any breast surgery until you have stopped breastfeeding for three months. It is important to let your breasts return to their natural shape and size to have a proper understanding of what needs to happen during your operation.
Will I lose sensation in my nipples after my breast lift operation?
Typically no. Most breast lift operations leave the nerve structures connected during the procedure. Women who undergo nipple and areola relocation may experience some loss of sensation, with most of it returning after a few months.
Will I have scars from my breast lift?
Several factors need to be considered when considering scaring from a breast lift. First and foremost is the scope of the procedure itself. While some lifts require only small, inconspicuous incisions, more complicated procedures can leave scaring under or even on the breast itself. While these scars eventually fade with time, you may have permanent scaring depending on your body’s ability to heal.
Does medical insurance cover breast lift procedures?
No. Breast lifts are cosmetic procedures and are not covered by medical insurance.
How long should I wait to lift heavy objects after a breast lift surgery?
We typically recommend that you do not lift anything over 5 pounds until six weeks after your surgery. Heavy lifting, reaching above the head, and moderate exercise can cause shifting and even damage to healing tissue.
Do I need a breast lift or breast augmentation?
Breast lifts will help restore perkiness. Breast augmentations will increase volume and fullness. Many women often choose to have both operations performed to achieve their goals. Your doctor will work with you to understand what results you are looking to see and help you make the best decision.
How much time should I take off from work after my breast lift surgery?
Typically you will need to take around a week off of work. If your job requires physical labor, lifting, or lots of movement, you may be unable to perform some of your duties.
How much pain can I expect during and after my breast list operation?
During the procedure, you will be placed under local or general anesthesia, so you can expect no pain. After the procedure, you can expect mild to moderate pain that can be treated with pain medication. If you experience severe pain, call your doctor immediately as this could be a sign of infection or other serious issues.
