Breast augmentation with lift has a 96% patient approval rating
According to members of Real Self, a community-driven review platform for aesthetic procedures, 96% of women undergoing a combined breast augmentation with lift are delighted with their results. This is no surprise to top Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Rady Rahban. He has seen a recent spike in requests for this dual approach to remedying sagging, flat breasts, particularly among women seeking an overall Mommy Makeover.
While not all women need a breast augmentation with lift, Los Angeles women seem to be of the opinion that the results are superior with both procedures. Dr. Rahban’s busy schedule is proof of this rising trend.
The rise in popularity of the breast lift
Statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons for 2014 noted a 75% increase in breast lift surgeries since the year 2000. While breast augmentation still tops the list for all cosmetic procedures in the US, the combined procedure of a breast augmentation with lift is quickly becoming the leading procedure for completely restoring the youthful breast profile that women seek.
Rachel discusses her experience with Dr. Rady Rahban after undergoing plastic surgery for a Breast Augmentation.
Why are both procedures recommended to restore lift and fullness?
A breast augmentation with lift provides a solution for both the loss of volume and sagging that comes with aging, especially for women who have had children. Each procedure solves a specific problem and they do not cross over. A breast implant will restore fullness but does not directly address the position of the breast on the chest. Without addressing breast position, a heavier implant can increase the strain on supporting muscles, creating more sagging.
Dr. Rahban takes an exceptional amount of time with his patients explaining the procedures and what they are intended to accomplish. Patients who wish only a breast lift are usually unaware that this procedure does not create fullness, particularly in the upper portion of the breast. A breast lift commonly reduces the breast by one cup size and for patients wishing to increase volume, a lift alone will not provide an increase in size.
What is involved with a breast lift/augmentation procedure?
A breast lift is designed to remove excess skin, rearrange internal breast tissue and relocate the nipple structure to create a more youthful looking breast. If the areola has become enlarged and stretched, it can be reduced during the lift procedure.
Placing a breast implant involves creating a pocket for the implant (usually under the chest muscle), placing the implant and closing the incision.
Breast augmentation with lift can now be combined
Until recently, having these procedures required two separate surgeries. The lift would be done first and when the patient was sufficiently healed, the implant surgery would be done. Studies have shown that with advances in technique and materials, it is statistically just as safe to have both procedures done in the same surgery as it is performing two surgeries. This is the case as long as the surgeon possesses the superior skill required.
The benefit of having both procedures in one surgery are twofold; patients are at less risk undergoing one surgery, and the result being sought is achieved much faster because healing is done over one period of time.
Am I a candidate for a breast augmentation with lift?
During your initial consultation Dr. Rahban will go over all of your options based on your physiology, goals and general health. Candidates for this procedure are those who have:
- Loss of volume
- Nipples that point down or are below the crease of the breasts
- Large areolas
- Sagging breasts (pencil stays in place under the breast crease)
- Lack of confidence wearing swim wear or low cut clothing
- Top of breast is flat or hollow
- Uneven breasts – one appears larger or out of place
Dr. Rahban may recommend the staged approach for some patients, depending on his assessment of their physiology and goals. His prime concern is always for the health and safety of his patients, followed by providing among the best breast augmentation with lift Beverly Hills can offer.

Dr. Rahban will help you with your decision
Considering a breast lift or a breast lift with augmentation requires an education into the type of incisions that will be used, along with the type and size of implant. Breast lift incisions are determined on several factors; the size of the breasts and areolas, the amount of sagging and the elasticity of the skin. There are also many things to consider concerning size of implants and how this decision will affect incision decisions.
Dr. Rahban does not expect his patients to make decisions without full knowledge of the result of these decisions. He won’t place an implant that is wrong for the patient or plan incision placement based on anything but what is best for his patient.
His consultation process is lengthy, giving his patients ample time to discuss their concerns and learn from his many years of performing breast augmentation with lift in Beverly Hills. In this way a partnership is formed, with both patient and surgeon focused on the same goal of achieving a boost in confidence through improving the breast profile.
Preventing unsightly scars - Dr. Rahban’s time tested scar protocol
Any time there is an incision, there will be a scar. The mastery of the surgeon is evident when the scars have fully healed. Thin scars that are virtually invisible are a hallmark of Dr. Rahban’s work because of the precision and care he uses when closing. He closes all incisions personally, not trusting this critical step to an assistant or surgical tech, unlike many other surgeons.
He closes each layer meticulously, using an inordinate amount of sutures and specialized techniques to ensure that pressure is shared equally along the length of the incision. This promotes even healing that will resolve into a thin, nearly undetectable scar over time.
Additionally, as patients are discharged, they are given his time-tested scar therapy protocol to follow as their healing progresses. Follow up visits are focused on overall healing both to determine that there are no issues such as infection, but also to determine that the incision is healing as expected.
Patient compliance with Dr. Rahban’s scar care protocol goes a long way in ensuring that scars will ultimately heal to virtual invisibility. Scars take up to a year to fully resolve as the body goes through different stages of healing, so you must exhibit some patience. Dr. Rahban is with you throughout your journey to ensure you achieve your goals.
