Breast Lift with Implants

In Atlanta


Breast Lift with Implants

A breast lift with implants is a comprehensive surgical procedure that addresses multiple aesthetic concerns. It is a combination of mammoplasty that augments the size of the breasts and mastopexy that elevates them. While silicone or saline implants can provide you with more fullness, volume, and symmetry, a breast lift may be necessary to tighten loose skin and reduce sagginess. Whether you are looking to achieve more voluptuous curves or want to correct the downward migration of breast tissue after pregnancy and breastfeeding, a Breast Lift with Implants in Atlanta at Arslanian Plastic Surgery may provide you with the long-lasting results you need to amplify your body confidence.

Lift + Implants

What is a Breast Lift with Implants?

Over time, some women will see their breasts sag, change, and lose perkiness which is a medical condition also referred to as breast ptosis, which can occur because of weight fluctuation, pregnancy, natural aging, and/or other inherited factors or something as simple as the effects of gravity. A breast lift with Implants lifts the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour using implants and also promises an increase in the size of your breasts using implants. It is two procedures combined in one. At Arslanian Plastic Surgery, double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Arslanian only inserts implants that are durable, biocompatible, and provide the desired contours of each patient.



Silicone implants are an increasingly popular choice among women with implants due to the latest technology known as highly cohesive silicone. “Gummy Bear” implants are made of this soft material that closely feels like natural breast tissue. They have low complication rates and are more stable within the breast- mitigating the risk of breast tissue deformation. Even though saline implants are not as popular, they still have unique benefits. The shells of the implant are made of silicone, but they are filled with saline. Each saline implant has a self-sealing valve that prevents rupture, but if rupture were to occur, the saline is 100% biocompatible and can be absorbed by the body with no issues. When inserting a saline implant, Dr. Arslanian will place it into the breast pocket within the chest and slowly administer the saline until it reaches the appropriate size the patient desires- making for a more customizable and precise insertion.


Projection is another aspect of breast implants to consider when considering what size you would like. Projection determines the side profile of your breasts, or how far your breasts will project. Implants are available in low, medium, and high profiles. Depending on your own body structure and preferences, this can be a critical part of choosing the right implants. For example, women with broader shoulders tend to look more natural with very high-profile breasts than smaller women. Other surgical factors will help Dr. Arslanian decide which profile is the most appropriate.


The implant size is measured in its total volume determined by cubic centimeters (cc). Both saline and silicone implants range from 150 cc (small) to over 400 cc (large). Keep in mind that implant size doesn’t directly translate to bra cup size. Dr. Arslanian will be able to review with you how different-sized implants can change your bra cup size post-surgery.


Round implants tend to produce more volume and cleavage in the upper portion of the breast, while “teardrop” implants– also called “shaped” implants- tend to look more natural.


Implants can either be smooth or textured and serve different purposes. While smooth implants do not attach to the scar tissue that naturally builds up within the breast, textured implants remain stable within the tissue pocket. Research has demonstrated that skin rippling is less of a risk with the insertion of smooth implants, but textured implants tend to have more longevity and durability.

First Steps

What’s the first step?

During your personal consultation, Dr. Arslanian will thoroughly discuss the risks and benefits of this type of breast augmentation. He may inform you of other options, such as a fat transfer breast augmentation, a procedure in which he will harvest a small portion of fat from another area of your body and transfer it into the breasts.

During this initial appointment, he will measure your breast and body proportions, take photos for reference, and discuss your aesthetic goals. You will have the opportunity to ask plenty of questions and have an open dialogue concerning your procedure. If you feel ready to take the first step today, call our office near Atlanta, GA at (678) 894-9200or submit your request for a consultation via our contact form.

 First, Dr. Arslanian will order blood tests to get a thorough overview of your general health. He will take the time to evaluate the medications and supplements you are currently taking to ensure there are no contraindications. Some medications and supplements have the potential to thin the blood and cause unnecessary bleeding or a slower recovery. 

 If you are a smoker, you should aim to quit for a few weeks to allow your body the capability to heal well. You should pick up all prescriptions and/or OTC medications that have been approved by Dr Arslanian. You will also sign all consent forms, get medical clearance from your primary doctor or specialist, and talk to your anesthesiologist concerning your blood tests and any health issues that are worth mentioning. Finally, we recommend making plans for a family member or friend to pick you up and take you home since you will not be able to drive.

What to expect on the day of Breast Lift with Implants surgery

After you are under the effects of general anesthesia, Dr. Arslanian will start by making his incision on the breast:

A “lollipop” incision involves a discreet incision placed on the outside of the areola and a vertical incision that goes straight down to the underside of the breast. 

An “anchor” incision involves a lollipop incision but with an added horizontal incision that follows the length of the underside of the breast. 

Typically, lollipop incisions are more common because they are suited to correct all kinds of ptosis (sagging). Anchor incisions are reserved only for women who exhibit severe ptosis. 

After making the appropriate incision, Dr. Arslanian will form a pocket under the pectoralis muscle of each breast. Most surgeons prefer placing the implants under the chest muscles since it promotes a more natural appearance, reduces the possibility of skin rippling, and possibly reduces the risk of capsular contracture, a condition in which too much fibrous scar tissue grows around the implant. 

He uses the “No touch” technique using a Keller Funnel, a simple device that places the implant in its correct position while minimizing the risk of contamination significantly. Research has also found that this method further reduces the risk of capsular contracture.  It also significantly cuts down the surgical time and makes implant insertion possible with shorter incisions. 

 After the implants are placed, Dr. Arslanian will excise loose skin, and all incisions will be closed to promote a perkier, rounder shape. 

Breast Lift with Implants recovery

For the first 24 hours post-procedure, you should focus on resting. You will be able to use your prescribed medications to ease the discomfort. For the next 7 days, your mobility will be somewhat limited, but you will be required to do a range of motion exercises for your arms. Dr. Arslanian will instruct you on how to massage your breasts to prevent capsular contracture. 

After about 1 week has passed, Dr. Arslanian will remove your dressings and sutures and provide you with instructions on how to wear your surgical garment. At this time, most patients feel comfortable enough to go back to work if they have a sedentary job. Some exercises are allowed 2 weeks after healing, but patients should refrain from heavy lifting for at least 6 weeks.
