Every woman deserves to feel confident about the look of her breasts. Concerns about small, sagging breasts can negatively affect your self-esteem and even your relationships. A combination breast lift and augmentation helps Boston and Rhode Island women reverse the adverse affects of gravity, weight loss, and pregnancy to restore a fuller, more youthful bust.

Dr. Tantillo will help you determine which breast enhancement procedures are right for you. To meet with him in person, request a consultation online. During your consultation, he will listen to your goals, answer your questions, and perform a brief physical examination.

Combining Breast Lift and Augmentation

Breast volume often decreases after pregnancy and weight loss. To make matters worse, the breasts the begin to droop and sag because there is too much skin for the underlying breast tissue. Dr. Tantillo corrects these problems through augmentation mastopexy, a procedure that combines:

  • Breast lift surgery, technically called mastopexy, to remove excess breast skin, raise, and tighten the breasts
  • Breast augmentation to increase breast size and fullness

Dr. Tantillo will determine which procedure, or combination of procedures, will suit your cosmetic needs based several factors, including on how severely your breasts sag, the elasticity of your skin, and the breast size you desire. He sometimes performs these procedures together as part of a mommy makeover.

Who is a Candidate for Breast Enhancement?

Healthy women who are unhappy having breasts that sag and lack fullness in the upper portion are ideal candidates to visit Dr. Tantillo near Boston, MA for combined breast lift and augmentation. Before surgery, you must be free from active infections, cancerous or precancerous cells in the breasts, and autoimmune diseases. This combined procedure can give you a more youthful and perky bustline.

Recovery from Breast Enhancement Surgery

Combined breast lift and augmentation surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure in most cases, allowing women to return home the day of their surgery. Within the first week after your breast enhancement procedure you should be able to return to most of your normal activities. Dr. Tantillo will allow you to add in exercise and other strenuous activities about 2 to 3 weeks later.
