Women choose to have breast augmentation for a variety of different reasons. Whether your breasts have lost volume and changed appearance due to motherhood or aging or you have never been happy with the appearance of your breasts, breast augmentation is a great way to increase breast volume and give you the fullness you desire. But will a breast augmentation alone really give you the full appearance you are looking for? Would combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation really make a difference in your final results? Here we take a closer look at both procedures and the benefits of the combination.
What a Breast Augmentation Addresses
The purpose of breast augmentation surgery and implants is to provide you with larger breasts through increased volume. Whether you were born with naturally smaller breasts or have lost breast volume with age or after pregnancy, implants can help give you the volume you desire. In addition, breast implants can help address asymmetry, giving your breasts a more balanced appearance.
What a Breast Lift Addresses
When the breasts lose volume, it can lead to breast ptosis, or sagging. Unfortunately, as women age, gain and lose weight, or have children, these changes are often evident through increased breast sagging. A breast lift is designed to reduce the saggy appearance by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding breast tissue. A breast lift can raise your breast position on your chest, improve breast shape and contour, and restore a youthful firmness to your breasts.
Combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation lets you achieve all your breast enhancement goals in one procedure.
The Benefits of Combining the Two Procedures
As you can see, each unique procedure focuses on different aspects of your breasts and their appearance. If you have lost volume and have sagging breasts, for example, an augmentation can boost your volume but may not be able to restore the position of your breasts, meaning they may still appear to sag despite the increased volume. Adding a breast lift allows you to replace lost volume while also positioning your breasts higher on the chest, giving you a more youthful appearance. And the bonus? Combining the procedures together means you only have one recovery period!
