It’s common for the breasts to experience changes over time, whether due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, age, or menopause. These changes can lead to fluctuations in volume and breast ptosis (sagging). Breast augmentation can enhance the shape, size, and appearance of the breasts to boost confidence and enhance your self-image.
However, you can also combine augmentation with a breast lift, an additional procedure that can lift the skin and breast tissue to give them a more youthful, balanced appearance.
If you’re considering breast augmentation but are unsure if you should combine it with a breast lift, here are some benefits of combining the two procedures.
Benefits of Combining a Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
Enhance Shape & Volume
A breast augmentation can add volume to the breasts as well as make your figure appear more shapely. However, if you are experiencing breast ptosis, this added volume may cause them to sag further. By combining the two procedures, Dr. Rachel Walker can lift the breasts and nipple, enhancing their shape and making them appear more full. You may even find that you do not need to add as much volume to the breasts.
Minimize Recovery Time
After having your breast augmentation, it is common for patients to opt for a breast lift later on. Combining the procedures now minimizes the recovery time you will have to experience in the future. It also lessens procedural costs, such as anesthesia, and reduces the amount of time spent in surgery overall.
Many patients opt for breast augmentation because they believe it can provide them with the results they’re looking for. While you can achieve beautiful results, it may not be able to target certain concerns, such as sagging and shape. Breast augmentations can add volume and increase the size of the breasts, but if you are concerned with breast ptosis or the shape or fullness of your breasts, you may want to combine the procedures.
