ATLANTA RESIDENTS ASK: CAN I COMBINE A BREAST LIFT WITH BREAST AUGMENTATION?

Breast enhancement surgeries are among the most common elective cosmetic procedures performed on women in the United States. Among these are the breast augmentation and the breast lift, which are commonly and mistakenly used synonymously. While these two procedures both aim to correct different concerns, their goals can at times overlap in ways that could be useful for women looking for more dramatic breast enhancement results.

BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY

In a society that associates larger, rounded breasts as the peak of womanhood and femininity, it can be taxing on the confidence of women that have naturally smaller, asymmetrical, or less full breasts. Breast augmentation surgery is a viable option for these women if they are looking for a way to increase breast size, as well as enhance and improve the overall appearance of their breasts. These goals are achieved through the insertion of silicone or saline implants underneath the chest muscle wall for beautiful, natural-looking results.

BREAST LIFT SURGERY

Pregnancy, menopause, breastfeeding, significant weight loss, large breast size, and the aging process are all factors that contribute to the drooping or sagging of the breasts. While these factors are common and natural, women experiencing breast drooping could benefit from breast lift surgery to restore a perkier, more youthful appearance to their chest.

BREAST LIFT AND AUGMENTATION COMBINATION SURGERY

It is important to note that, while a breast lift can reposition the breasts and nipples higher on the chest, it does not change the shape or fullness of the breasts. It is not uncommon for a patient to desire perkier breasts along with an increase in volume. In cases such as these, a plastic surgeon would likely recommend a combination procedure in which both a breast lift and a breast augmentation are performed at the same time.

BENEFITS OF COMBINING BREAST LIFT AND BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURES

There are many benefits to having both procedures performed at the same time. Some to consider are:

  • More cost-effective than having two separate procedures
  • Less scarring and skin removal
  • Combination lift and augmentation surgery is just as safe as a single surgery
  • A reduction in overall downtime, recovery time, and inconvenience
  • An implant helps improve the overall appearance and lifts the breast so that less surgical lifting is needed

Both breast lift and breast augmentation can improve the look of your breasts and your self-confidence, but each of them serves a different purpose. If you are interested in learning more about each procedure to decide if either, or both, are right for you, consult with Dr. Christopher Killingsworth of Atlanta Aesthetics to craft your unique treatment plan. Dr. Killingsworth and his staff are proud to offer expert service to the people of Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
