Should I Combine My Breast Lift With An Augmentation?

breast augmentation breast lift and breast augmentation are two different surgical procedures with their respective advantages. However, when combining the two of these procedures, you can garnish the benefits of both approaches in one sitting. 

This helps you save time overall with your recovery and visits to the doctor’s office. While on the surface combining these two treatments may not seem like it would make a huge difference, once you go explore the idea, you can discover why combining breast lift and augmentation can lead to life-changing results. 

What Is a Breast Lift? 

A breast lift is a procedure that works to lift the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the skin and surrounding tissue to create a youthful look. 

In most instances, with breast lifts, the areolae and nipples are repositioned higher up on the chest to make the results look and feel natural. 

What Is Breast Augmentation? 

Breast augmentation is a procedure that enhances the overall appearance of the breasts by altering their size, shape, and contour. 

This procedure is typically performed by making small incisions under the breasts and inserting either silicone or saline implants above or below the pectoral muscle. 

What Are the Advantages of Combining Both Procedures? 

By combining both procedures, each one makes up for what the other lacks. Breast augmentation enhances the breast’s size, shape, and contour but doesn’t help with elevation and sagging. 

A breast lift helps with sagging and the elevation of the breasts, but it does not enhance the overall shape, size, and contour. You are getting the best of both worlds by combining the two procedures. 

With your results from combining both procedures, you gain elevated, tightened breasts that are enhanced in size, shape, and contour to your liking. You also only have to account for one surgery day and one recovery period.
