The Benefits Of Combining Breast Lift And Breast Augmentation

The Benefits Of Combining Breast Lift And Breast Augmentation

As you explore your options for breast augmentation, you may be wondering whether you only need a breast lift, breast augmentation, or both. Many women seek breast enhancement procedures to achieve the goal of both increased breast volume as well as a more youthful breast shape. A breast lift raises saggy breasts higher up on the chest wall while a breast augmentation uses silicone or saline implants to add volume and fullness to the breasts. Both procedures can be performed at the same time to offer the benefits of a breast lift and breast augmentation. To help you make your decision to get a breast lift, breast augmentation procedure or both, this article will go over some of the main benefits of combining these breast surgeries.

4 Benefits Of Combining Breast Lift And Breast Augmentation

To achieve your desired appearance, sometimes a breast augmentation procedure or breast lift procedure may not suffice on its own. To satisfy your goals for enhancement, you may require the specialized surgery of combining both procedures. 

1. Enhanced Results
Combining both surgeries allows your surgeon to completely transform the overall appearance of your breasts. Your surgeon will be able to make small changes while having greater control over perfecting the shape, size, and position of the breasts leading to better results from your procedure. When performing a breast lift and augmentation separately, there is a greater risk of surgical complications and less control for the plastic surgeon. 

2. Shorter Recovery Time And Money Saver. 
If you were to opt for both surgeries but performed at different times, you will have two periods of recovery. By combining a breast lift and augmentation into one, there is only one recovery stage, meaning an overall quicker healing time. Also, instead of paying for two separate surgeries, you will only be paying for one, which will lead to a substantial decrease in cost.  

3. Less Scarring
Compared to performing each procedure separately, combining both surgeries will result in significantly fewer incisions. Fewer incisions mean less harm to your skin, fewer stitches required, and less scarring. While the risk of scarring is always present when a surgery is performed, the likelihood of significant scarring will be greatly decreased when the two surgeries are performed at the same time.

4. Safe Procedure
Combining both procedures only requires you to go under anaesthesia once. You will be reducing your risk by only exposing yourself to the inherent risks of surgery one time. Having the surgeries performed separately puts you at risk for complications twice. Also, by having the two surgeries performed separately, there will be double the chance that something could go wrong. 

How Do I Know If Combining Both A Breast Lift And Breast Augmentation Is Right For Me?
If you are looking to improve both the shape and size of your breasts, combining breast augmentation and breast lift may be right for you. A breast lift alone will raise and reshape your breasts, however, it may not restore fullness in the upper portion of your breast if you do not have enough breast tissue. Breast augmentation will address the size and fullness of your breasts but not sagging, drooping, or stretched skin. To help you make a decision on which procedure will help you achieve your desired results, consult a plastic surgeon.
