Dr. Rebecca Garza wants everyone who visits her Schererville, Indiana, practice to get the most from their breast enhancement. This means she often combines breast augmentation with breast lift to help patients from Munster, Crown Point, and surrounding communities achieve multiple goals in one surgery.
Your Breast Enhancement Consultation With Dr. Garza
During your consultation, Dr. Garza will conduct an in-depth evaluation of your breast anatomy, medical history, and goals. She will take into account specific details such as breast volume, nipple placement, breast symmetry, and degree of ptosis (sagging) to determine which procedure(s) will best achieve the results you want.

Breast Augmentation With Lift Before and After Photos
Dr. Garza will share before and after photos of her breast augmentation with lift patients so that you can discuss your preferences and see what you can realistically expect from this combination procedure. It may also be helpful to bring in “wish” photos of how you want your breasts to look after your surgery. We do not display patients’ before and after photos on our site.
Dr. Garza frequently combines a breast lift with augmentation for Indiana women who want to enhance the size, shape, position, and symmetry of their breasts and nipples.
Breast Augmentation With Lift
Breast augmentation with a simultaneous breast lift enhances volume, reshapes the breasts, removes excess skin, and raises the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest. Patients typically seek to correct “deflated” breasts and nipples that point downward.
A breast lift tightens and reshapes the breast tissue and raises the breasts to a more youthful position. While a breast augmentation on its own may mitigate very minor sagging, the added weight of the implants tends to exacerbate sagging. In cases where more advanced ptosis is present, a breast lift or combined procedure will provide the best outcomes.
Breast augmentation patients have the option of either silicone gel or saline breast implants. Each type has its advantages and drawbacks, and Dr. Garza will spend time discussing them with you in-depth when developing your surgical plan.

Recovery From Breast Augmentation With Lift
Combination breast surgery usually requires more recovery time than a single procedure. To speed up the recovery process, Dr. Garza usually has patients wear a surgical bra to support their breasts while they heal. She may also use drainage tubes to reduce fluid accumulation and swelling.
For the first week, you will notice some swelling, soreness, and bruising. Dr. Garza encourages patients to avoid work or other physical activity during this time. Pain medication can reduce any discomfort.
Although full recovery takes a few months, most women feel like themselves again after just a few weeks. The majority of patients can return to work after about a week but are cautioned to avoid strenuous exercise for about 3 to 4 weeks.
