About Breast Augmentation with
If the breasts are uneven or lopsided, or if the patient just finished with childbearing and breastfeeding or a mastectomy, or if they simply want to add more size to their breasts, then a breast augmentation can be the solution for them. Our Phoenix, AZ patients can not only dramatically improve the appearance of their breasts with an augmentation procedure, but they can also change their lives. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, is able to combine a traditional implant surgery along with a breast lift procedure to create the most optimal results for patients in need of added volume, as well as elevated and reshaped breast tissue. Patients who are desiring to have both procedures performed can contact our office, G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C., to set up a consultation with our plastic surgeon. He will meet with each patient to learn about their case and determine the most ideal treatment process for them.
The best candidates for a combined breast augmentation and a breast lift procedure are:
- Experiencing sagging or drooping breasts in need of firming
- Desiring to increase the current size of their breasts
- Not nursing or planning on becoming pregnant
- Not planning on undergoing significant weight loss in the future
- Desiring natural, long-term results

What to Expect
After the general anesthesia is administered, Dr. Meger will make careful incisions either around the aerolas, underneath the breasts, or on the side of the breasts around the armpit to prevent the scarring from showing much. He will then place the implants behind the muscle and secure them. Once the implants are in place, Dr. Meger will proceed with the lifting portion of the procedure, where the nipples will be repositioned and elevated to support and match the new size of the breasts. The entire procedure typically lasts between 1 – 3 hours. Patients can return to their normal routine within 1 – 2 weeks following the surgery and should expect bruising and swelling for the next 2 – 3 weeks after their procedure.
Patients will see the increased size of their breasts right after their breast augmentation procedure; however, the results from the breast lift will begin to appear more gradually. After their procedure, patients can expect to see their results within 1 month once the bruising and swelling has healed. Overall, patients can enjoy their new, fuller, more youthful breasts for years to come, though the implants may need to be revised after a few years.
