Breast Augmentation with Lift
Serving The Woodlands, Cypress, and Conroe, Texas
For women who have experienced sagging as well as volume loss, a breast augmentation with lift is necessary to elevate the breasts to a youthful position on the chest. In fact, large implants can increase sagging due to the added weight if a lift is not part of the surgical plan.

OR BREAST IMPLANTS?
Breast augmentation, the placement of implants, is intended to add volume and projection to the breast silhouette. Implants can also correct uneven breasts if one breast is larger than the other.
A breast lift is intended to raise the breasts to a higher position on the chest by removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue. The areola and nipple structure is also moved to match the higher position and if the areola has become enlarged, it can be reduced. A breast lift won’t create volume particularly in the upper area of the breast.
Most women over 30 have begun to experience some sagging which becomes more pronounced through the aging process. Women who have breastfed their babies or who have experienced significant weight loss will usually have significant sagging.
The best procedure for any patient is determined by the image goals of the patient. If the volume of the breast is satisfactory, a breast lift alone can be all that is needed to rejuvenate the breast contour. If volume is needed or there is a difference in the size of the breasts, a breast augmentation with lift will accomplish the goal of a breast profile that is youthful, firm and has the volume desired by the patient.
CONSIDERING A BREAST AUGMENTATION WITH LIFT?
Patients considering a breast augmentation with lift can usually benefit from having both procedures done during one surgery. This allows recovery to be done simultaneously which decreases overall recovery time, as compared to if the procedures were done separately. Having one surgery also reduces the general risks of surgery and is more cost-effective. Dr. Correa advises each patient on the recovery timeline based on their unique needs.
Combining procedures also reduce the amount of discomfort patients must cope with. The addition of a breast lift with augmentation does not significantly increase discomfort and many patients are delighted to find the recovery is much easier than they anticipated. Pain medication is usually necessary only for a few days.
*Individual results may vary.
Dr. Correa’s Philosophy on
“Breast augmentation provides a unique opportunity for the patient to choose almost every aspect of their surgery – from the incision location to the type and size of the implant, it’s as close as you can get to re-designing your own body to your desires.”
I am so happy that I trusted Dr. Correa

Before choosing Dr Correa, I went to see a very well known PS that spent no more than 5 minutes with me during my first appointment. That was not a good experience, as I felt just like a number and I’m glad I left that place quickly. Then, decided to make an appointment with Dr Correa. (Best decision EVER!)
During the appointment I was actually surprised about how dr Correa took his time to go over all my questions, what my goal was and genuinely listened my concern. I was very hesitant to do surgery because of my petit frame. I relied upon Dr. Correa to give me his honest opinion on what would look the best/most natural with my body type and I am so happy that I trusted him and went with his suggestion. He is an expert on proportion and natural appearance!
My breasts look so natural and so proportional to my body. He is an artist! Also, I was very impressed with his post-op care. He called to check how I was doing and quickly texted me back anytime I had any questions or concerns. His staff was very professional and always making me feel welcome.
I urge anyone who wants breasts that look natural to their body to fully trust him and his expertise.
Dr Correa is the Best Doctor!!!!

I met Dr Correa for a consultation and I knew he was going to be my guy! He is very personable, funny, knowledgeable and professional. His staff is very sweet and friendly, I always felt very welcomed. When Dr Correa did my surgery, he called me that night to make sure I was okay. He also checked on me a couple of times before my follow up appointments. He is very caring for his patients and he listened to my concerns. I am very happy with my results and I would highly recommend my family and friends to see him. His office is very clean, wait time is very minimal and I absolutely love him! Thank you Dr Correa for everything!
Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing!

Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing! It hasn’t been the easiest recovery but he and his staff have been very helpful and attentive. He has called several times to check on me and Gabrielle is very sweet and helpful – even when I have called to ask the same questions probably more than once lol – top notch surgeon and staff , he is definitely the best and I am very happy that I chose to go with him.
What an amazing physician!

What an amazing physician! Dr. Correa and his office staff treat you like a family member from day one. Everything from the consult, surgery day, to post op was professional and he really went out of his way to make me feel at home. I never once felt like I was being “rushed along”, or felt like I was just another paycheck. This physician and his staff go the extra mile. The day of my surgery, he was fifteen minutes early! Fifteen minutes people! I work at a hospital and i can tell you no surgeries ever run on time, let alone early. I also appreciate the fact that he performs all surgeries at an actual hospital, not a outpatient surgical center. Dr. Correa even called me from his personal phone later in the evening after my surgery to check on me. His office coordinator, Gabrielle, and his nurse, are remarkable girls! They accommodate every rescheduled appointment and are very warm and caring. You are doing yourself an absolute disservice if you do not allow yourself to be sculpted by Dr. Correa! I promise you will not regret it!
