Combining a Breast Lift with Implants for the Best of Both Worlds

149071492There’s a range of breast enhancement procedures that can revamp your figure and bring out the best in your contours. For some women, increasing cup size with implants is all the help they need to achieve their aesthetic goals. However, other women can benefit from combining a breast augmentation with a breast lift for a beautiful effect.

Implants on Their Own

A breast augmentation with implants makes breasts bigger, but sometimes breast beauty is about more than just an increase in size. Over time, the breasts can change in shape and develop ptosis, or sagging. Putting implants in droopy breasts won’t solve the sag and the weight of the implants may even make it worse.

The Benefits of a Breast Lift

Whether caused by pregnancy, weight loss or aging, women with ptosis can find relief with a breast lift. This procedure, also known as mastopexy, elevates the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest. A breast lift also reshapes the breasts, removing stretched skin and tightening the surrounding tissue for an improved contour. A mastopexy can also reposition or resize the nipple or areola if necessary.

The Best Friends in the Breast Enhancement World

Women who’d like to boost their cup size and improve their breast appearance may enjoy the best of both worlds when they combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation. Bringing the two procedures together into one may offer optimal results for the right candidates, providing enhanced size as well as support. Women looking to regain their pre-baby breasts may especially benefit from combining their augmentation with a breast lift. A board-certified plastic surgeon with experience blending these two surgeries can offer you optimal results.
