Breast augmentation with lift is a breast enhancement procedure that changes the breast size and symmetry for a younger, lifted look. Together, these procedures provide an excellent solution for women experiencing ptosis or sagging skin in the breasts caused by aging, pregnancy, or weight changes. Breast augmentation increases the breast size with an implant chosen by the patient while a breast lift positions the breast tissue to a higher place on the chest. As a result, these two procedures provide a perkier, more voluptuous, and attractive figure. Dr. Gordan Andan and his team of New York Surgical Arts experts are here to revitalize your look.

About Breast Implants
Breast augmentation is one of the most sought-after treatments to achieve a voluminous chest appearance. However, it is essential to understand the details of your treatment. After the appropriate incisions are made, an implant is inserted inside the breast pocket.  You’ll have the opportunity to review your options during your personal consultation with Dr. Andan.
Saline or Silicone Implants
There are two types of implants: Saline (saltwater) and silicone. Both are safe options to change the breast appearance, and each has unique advantages. Saline implants can be inserted into the breast and filled during the surgery. On the other hand, silicone implants are conveniently filled with gel before surgery to mimic the natural look and feel of the breast.
The size of implants is measured in cubic centimeters (CC’s), not by bra or cup size. A higher number of CC’s in an implant means a bigger implant.
Patients can take advantage of two implant shapes: round and teardrop. Round implants offer patients better fullness and lift. Meanwhile, teardrop implants are designed to imitate the breast’s natural contours. They are ideal for women who want a realistic look.
About Breast Lift
Medically known as a mastopexy, a breast lift improves the breast tissue’s projection and symmetry.  Dr. Andan will make the appropriate incisions near the breasts to remove excess skin, tighten remaining skin, and reposition the nipple and areola for a shapelier look.
Combined, these procedures are great for patients looking to improve their breast size and projection.
Advantages of Having Two Procedures Combined
- Restores youthful contours
- Increases the size of the breast and reduces redundant skin
- Less hassle of having two separate procedures
- Reduces cost and logistical concerns
- Increased clothing options
Healthy patients looking for a comprehensive makeover to their chest are ideal candidates. Women noticing a shift in their breast profile caused by aging, weight changes, or childbirth will highly benefit from this procedure. Ideal candidates usually:
- Are in good health without medical conditions
- Desire to achieve a dramatic breast look with a combined procedure
- Willing to temporarily give up smoking until fully recovered
- Are finished with their family building journey
- Have positive and realistic expectations for what the surgery will do

Personal Consultation with Dr. Andan
Dr. Gordon Andan’s attention to detail and emphasis on natural-looking results sets him apart from the rest of the competition. Since creating New York Surgical Arts, Dr. Andan has been committed to each patient’s success story. He delivers a personalized approach to cosmetic care, so patients can walk out pleased with their experience.
Your consultation is dedicated to discussing your intended results and available options. An examination of the breast tissue and skin laxity will determine if this combined procedure will achieve your aesthetic goal. Once we’ve developed a treatment plan, we will go over your choices to achieve an optimal breast aesthetic.
Dr. Andan will provide patients with a list of instructions to complete before their surgery. They include:
- Forgo smoking until you’re properly healed.
- Choose someone you know to pick you up from our surgical offices because the effects of anesthesia will impact your ability to drive.
- Modify medication intake of certain prescription drugs because they may increase bleeding.
- Pick up prescribed pain medications ordered by Dr. Andan before your surgery date.
- Plan to take 1-2 weeks off from work to recuperate properly.
We will begin your surgery by administering general anesthesia to keep you comfortable throughout the surgery. Dr. Andan will then make the appropriate incisions based on your treatment plan. But, don’t worry. The discreet incisions will ensure low detectability. Then, Dr. Andan will securely place the chosen implant into the breast pocket. Unnecessary skin is excised, and the breast profile is contoured to provide a more pleasing shape.  Once finished, he will skillfully close the incisions with sutures. Depending on the specifics of your treatment, the procedure should take place within two hours.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
For fat transfer breast augmentation, Dr. Andan will first liposuction out a predetermined amount of fat from areas you wish to slim down. Next, the harvested fat will be cleaned and prepared for injection. Finally, the fat cells are gently injected directly into the breast to provide a natural, modest enhancement.
Completing the pre-surgery instructions ensures a successful, routine recovery with optimal results. Most patients will feel swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days following surgery. Dr. Andan will prescribe medication to address these symptoms. Getting good rest will also facilitate an excellent recovery. After surgery, you will be given a support surgical bra to protect the results. Most women can resume easy activity and office work within a week and regular activity within 3-4 weeks.
Immediate improvements can be seen right after surgery. However, continued results will show once your healing journey ends. When that happens, you will see a voluminous, perkier aesthetic to your breasts. Your new look can be kept for a long time by avoiding weight changes and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
