"Dr. Dauwe is AMAZING! - I initially visited Dr. Dauwe for fillers, which he did an exceptional job. I had such a good experience with him that I scheduled a consultation for my breast lift and augmentation. From that initial consult to my next day, post-op visit, he took so much time and care. He listened to my needs and concerns, knew exactly the look I wanted and the results are fantastic. Updated on 12 Jul 2018:"- R. / RealSelf / Oct 09, 2018
"Where do I begin? Seriously the BEST Dr and staff ever! 14 years ago I had a breast lift and augmentation at a different location. Immediately started having complications, resulting in multiple skin graphs and reconstruction. Also resulting in nerve damage. I’ve been SCARED to get this issue fixed. Until my best friends and several of their family members shared their experience with Dr Dauwe and his staff! AMAZING! So I gave them a shot, and let me tell you my experience with them and their entire staff was just as if not more amazing! Not only did they calm my fears and gave me my confidence back, you could not ask for a better staff and Doctor Who genuinely cares about your well-being and your needs. This has been some thing that has lowered my self-esteem for the past 14 years and I finally feel whole again! The surgery went perfect with Little pain and I was so worried about the healing process because of the last experience I had with another office. But so far I am doing beyond better than expected and they have been nothing but amazing! My husband and I were blown away with the surgery center and all the staff there just being over and abundantly caring not just being nice because it’s their job but genuinely caring about you! I simply cannot say enough! If you were looking for a cosmetic doctor for any reason I highly recommend Dr. Dauwe and his wonderful staff! Thank you again for giving me back my confidence!"- K.S. / Google / Apr 15, 2022

Is A Breast Augmentation With Lift Right For You?
There are several reasons why you may be looking into breast augmentation surgery with a lift. It's an ideal choice if you want to significantly rejuvenate your breasts, especially if you have developed breast ptosis (sagging) caused by aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. It can also enhance the volume of your bust for a more natural appearance. Dr. Dauwe will be able to determine if a lift alone will get your desired outcome, or if both a lift and implants are better to attain your goals.
Breast Augmentation Lift Surgical Technique
A combination breast surgery is commonly done at an accredited surgical facility as an outpatient procedure where you will be sedated with general anesthesia. In most cases the breast implant is placed first, then the nipple is repositioned, and the excess skin is removed. Dr. Dauwe will explain the options available for breast implants before your surgery, so you will get a good idea of your postoperative result. In some patients, this operation can correct asymmetries in the breast or nipple areola complex.
What to Expect with Breast Augmentation Lift Surgery
The recovery timeframe for an augmentation with a lift will be different for every patient; however, you should be able to get back to light activities in about seven days. You will need to refrain from exercise and strenuous activities for at least 3 – 6 weeks. There will also be mild to moderate swelling after your surgery that may last for 2 – 3 weeks. Your implants will settle into their final position after several months where at that time, you will be able to see your permanent results.
Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Augmentation & Lift
How much does breast augmentation with a lift cost?
Your costs for a breast augmentation with a lift will vary depending on multiple factors, like whether you want implants (saline or silicone) or a fat transfer. Also, the complexity of the lift will help determine your costs. In your initial consultation, Dr. Dauwe will develop a personalized surgical plan and then estimate your costs. Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery takes many payment methods and we can help you find low-interest financing.
Will a breast augmentation with a lift correct sagging?
A good reason to get breast surgery that combines augmentation with a lift is that it increases the size of your chest while also addressing sag by removing loose skin. The breast lift will also adjust your natural breast tissue so the results are perky and firm. This is crucial since augmenting breasts with mild sagging may cause a less than ideal outcome if a breast lift isn't done to address the loose skin. To address sagging, a breast lift should be completed and then a fat transfer or implants can be added. In your initial consultation with Dr. Dauwe, he will take his time to understand your goals before examining the condition of your chest. Following this, he can offer his suggestion on whether you need a lift, implants, or a combination of both.
Which incision is best for my surgery?
Incisions patterns for breast surgery have become more advanced with techniques being developed to help minimize the visibility of scars. The surgical incision that is best for you will be chosen based on the type of implants and severity of breast sag. To correct moderate to severe breast sag, an anchor-shaped incision pattern is most effective. When forming your surgical plan, Dr. Dauwe will go over incision options that fit your needs. No matter what pattern is selected, Dr. Dauwe will make incisions carefully to minimize the appearance of scars.
How long will my results last?
If you don't have dramatic weight changes or get pregnant, your results from a breast augmentation with a lift should last many years. Although both silicone and saline implants are long-lasting, they should be assessed regularly to check their condition. In the surgery, Dr. Dauwe sets your implants with a technique that reduces breast sagging. This will help your results last for a long time. It's important to know that while cosmetic breast surgery provides beautiful outcomes, it does not stop the natural aging process. In time, you might begin to notice sagging and loose skin again, but this can be addressed with another procedure.
How bad is the scarring?
Dr. Dauwe will do his best to make incisions in areas that are difficult to see like in the breast folds or on the areola border. With proper care, in time, the incisions will fade and blend in more with your normal skin. Dr. Dauwe will enroll you in the laser scar management protocol to blend your scars. Additionally, Dr. Dauwe or someone on his staff will discuss scar care instructions you need to follow after your procedure.
