Does an Augmentation Lift Sound Like the Solution for You?

Both breast lifts and breast augmentation with implants are quite popular procedures, as these surgeries address concerns that many women face. Breast lifts are good for taking care of sagging breasts and can also adjust the size and location of areolae. Breast augmentation is ideal for women who are unhappy with their natural breast size.

There are instances when a woman may want both lifting and augmentation of the breasts. Is such a surgery an option?

What Is a Breast Lift?

The breast lift takes care of sagging breasts, drooping nipples, and enlarged areole. Breasts can sag due to pregnancies, breastfeeding, and the normal aging process. A breast lift can make the breasts perkier and more youthful again. During this procedure, the doctor removes excess skin and other tissues. The skin is tightened and the areolae are adjusted as needed.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a procedure that helps to enhance breast size and projection using breast implants. After incisions are made, the implants are carefully placed in the breasts to improve volume. You can use saline or silicone implants based on your preference and expectations for the surgery.

Can They Be Combined?

Happily, breast augmentation and a breast lift can be combined in a single surgical procedure: augmentation mastopexy. Many women are now choosing this option to enjoy the benefits of a combined surgery.

If you prefer your breasts to look fuller and perkier, a combined procedure may be ideal for you. Breast augmentation alone can only increase the size of the breasts, and a breast lift alone can only lift sagging breasts. The good thing is you don’t need to choose one out of the two. If you really want to make your breasts appear fuller and more youthful, a combined procedure is the best option.

When you combine the surgeries, the major advantage is that you can address multiple breast issues during the course of a single operation. You will need to tolerate anesthesia only once due to the combined surgery.

You will also only need a single recovery period for this procedure as opposed to two. This means that you’ll save time, lessen the amount of overall discomfort, and return to your workplace sooner.

When you choose a combined surgery, the results are better. The correction of sagging makes the breasts appear fuller, making it so less volume may be necessary in your implants. Adding implants can create sagging due to the added weight, and combining the procedures makes it so that sag can be taken care of before it becomes a problem.

Breast lifts combined with augmentation are very safe. A combined procedure can also offer you cost benefits.
