For some prospective plastic surgery patients, it can make a lot of sense to combine multiple cosmetic procedures into one surgery. One of the most consistently in-demand plastic surgery combinations over the years has been women combining breast augmentation surgery with a breast lift. Undergoing this combined cosmetic breast surgery can help women increase the size and volume of their breasts while simultaneously enjoying a better-positioned, perkier breast contour. The results are typically outstanding and long-lasting.
In addition to want an increased breast size, breast sagging is also an extremely common aesthetic concern. Whether this results from pregnancy, weight fluctuation, or naturally over time, sagging breasts can have a significant negative impact on a woman’s body image and self-esteem. With this in mind, it makes sense for women who are unhappy with the size, shape, and positioning of their breasts to consider combining these two cosmetic procedures.
In addition to helping patients achieve the most comprehensive breast rejuvenation results, combining breast augmentation with a breast lift (instead of having the two procedures separately) can provide additional unique benefits. This includes cutting back on overall surgical costs and downtime needed for recovery when compared to having these procedures performed separately.
For many women, it is very safe to combine a breast augmentation with a breast lift. However, every patient is different and not everyone may be a good candidate for this combined procedure. Additionally, some women (particularly younger women) who seek breast augmentation may not experience breast sagging or excess skin. While these procedures can complement each other exceptionally well, they are not mutually exclusive and can be performed separately if that is what the patient needs.
Performing breast augmentation and breast lift surgery as a single procedure can pose additional technical challenges for any plastic surgeon. That’s why it is essential for anyone considering this combined surgery to find a skilled, experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon to perform this procedure.
