Breast augmentation and lifts are some of the most common cosmetic surgeries done in the U.S., according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate your breasts with an augmentation, you might consider a breast lift with augmentation instead. There are some real benefits to having both at once.
One Surgery Instead of Two
The primary health benefit of combining these two cosmetic surgeries is shorter recovery time. If you have just a breast lift, you will spend up to a week recovering from the procedure. It could take as long as two months to heal from breast augmentation fully.
A breast lift with augmentation is a more efficient way to get younger-looking breasts. It means only having to undergo surgery once, too. That indicates less anesthesia and cutting. Additionally, combining the procedures into one surgery eliminates the need for two separate recovery processes, which can save you downtime in the long run.
Get Surgery Done That You Might Need Anyway
Some women get augmentation done first and then later, as they get older, decide they need a breast lift. While it is possible to get a lift if you already have breast implants, it is more complicated. Getting the lift at the same time eliminates the question of whether you would be able to have a lift later.
Better Looking Breasts
Getting an augmentation adds volume to your breasts but does not significantly improve the shape. Implants can sag the same way natural breast tissue will eventually. It takes a breast lift to keep the shape.
Conversely, getting a breast lift alone will improve the shape but not add volume. Getting both done at once gives you the best-looking breasts by improving multiple areas of concern at once.
