Combining A Breast Reduction And Breast Lift

Combining A Breast Reduction And Breast Lift

Many women are dissatisfied with the shape or size of their breasts and seek to alter the appearance of their breasts. Through breast surgery such as breast lifts and breast reductions, the size and shape of breasts can be refined to create a more desirable appearance. If you want smaller breasts that do not weigh on your back and shoulders, you may want to consider a breast reduction, also called reduction mammoplasty. If you are satisfied with the size of your breasts but not the shape or symmetry, you may want to consider a breast lift, also called breast mastopexy. And if you are searching for solutions for size, shape, symmetry, and lift, you can combine these two procedures for optimal results.

Breast Lift And Breast Reduction

Breast Lift
A breast lift is a surgical procedure that changes the appearance of your breasts by refining the shape of your breasts and repositioning your nipples to create a more appealing profile. A breast lift will typically involve the removal of skin, fat, and breast tissue to create firmer breasts and a higher contour. Most people choose to get a breast lift to change the aesthetics of their breasts to make them perkier, firmer, and more youthful in appearance, but some people also receive this procedure to alter the distribution of weight on their chest.

Breast Reduction
A breast reduction will decrease the size of your breasts. This involves removing excess fat, skin, and breast tissue. A breast reduction offers many incredible benefits in addition to reducing breast size. Some women seek a breast reduction for medical reasons. This can include relieving back and neck pain, reducing pain during exercise, better quality sleep, and more. Other people opt for breast reduction surgery purely for cosmetic purposes. A breast reduction can help to create more even proportions and a more appealing silhouette.

Combining A Breast Lift And A Breast Reduction
These two procedures are often combined to create ideal results. Before choosing which procedure (or the combined procedure), discuss your desired results with your plastic surgeon and consider the benefits of receiving a breast reduction and breast lift at the same time. Combining these procedures is a simple and effective way to improve the appearance of your breasts with techniques that will reduce the size and refine the shape and position. Not only are these two procedures complimentary, but combining them also saves you time and money. Cosmetic surgery costs include the time and expertise of the staff, the anaesthesia, the room rental, and other administrative fees. By combining a breast lift and a breast reduction, you only pay for these services once, instead of twice. In addition to the cost savings you will only need to recover from surgery one time.

Q: How long is the recovery time after breast lift surgery?
A: Every patient will have a different recovery experience based on their health and the success of the surgery. Recovery typically takes 6 weeks after breast lift surgery, at which point you should see a significant reduction in swelling. Here are 10 Tips For Optimal Recovery After Breast Lift Surgery for a faster, safer recovery.

Q: What should I expect during recovery from a breast lift or breast reduction?
A: You will have to rest and avoid strenuous activities for at least 2 weeks before resuming daily tasks. You will also be unable to participate in any vigorous activities, and some fitness activities for at least 3 weeks after your procedure. Some patients experience minor pain, bruising, and swelling as well as some numbness around the areola, however, it should decrease over several weeks. Your final result, with all swelling gone, may take up to 6 months or more to become apparent.

Q: Why are my breasts sagging?
A: Some women’s breasts sit lower on their chest than others and breasts may appear to sag for various reasons. Contributing factors of sagging breasts typically include:

  • Age 
  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy
  • Significant weight loss/weight gain 
  • Hormone changes
  • Lifestyle habits (such as smoking)
