“My experience has taught me that when a person has a positive self-image, she/he is more engaged in the spectrum of daily activities related to work, parenting, and relationships. Because of the physical transformation they receive, my patients find more joy in putting on a swimsuit and going to the pool, they feel more confident about how they look in and out of clothes, and their relationships are often improved particularly their intimate relationships because they feel proud, whole and less inhibited.”
Christopher Patronella, MD


Pregnancy, gravity, and aging are all contributing factors that can cause the breasts to lose volume and firmness. By combining a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Patronella often is able to transform the breasts in a single procedure using a Delay Fill Technique he developed which greatly improves the results of this traditionally challenging procedure combination. Because of the successful results he’s achieved with this method, Dr. Patronella was invited to write a chapter on the Delay Fill technique in the publication for plastic surgeons: Seminars in Plastic Surgery.

The Combined Breast Augmentation & Breast Lift Procedure

In this 2-3 hour procedure, Dr. Patronella performs a breast lift, reshaping and raising the breasts into a more youthful position on the chest. He then inserts saline implants into breast pockets he forms under the chest muscle and partially fills them with a sterile saline solution.

In 10-14 days, he completes the inflation of the implants to the final desired volume during a minor office procedure that takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Staging the combined breast augmentation and breast lift procedure in this way results in a more ideal healing process, allowing breast tissues to gradually adjust to the greater breast volume and firmness. This procedure is performed on a outpatient basis, and most women can return to work and many of their normal activities within a week.
