Breast combination surgery is that both lifts and shapes a woman's breasts. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and even weight loss can take a toll on the size and shape of a woman's breasts. By combining a lift and augmentation, a woman's breasts can appear fuller and more youthful.
In general, if you desire larger breasts and your nipple lies below the level of the bottom of your breast, adding implants alone will not lead to the desired result and a lift will be necessary in conjunction with augmentation. As an added bonus, discrepancies in the size of the areolae can be corrected during this surgery to further improve symmetry.
Breast combination surgery is a safe and effective way to restore fuller volume and a more youthful shape to the breasts. It is an outpatient procedure, which means that you can return home the same day that you have surgery. As long as your job does not involve lifting or extreme reaching, you can expect to return to work within a week to ten days. Imagine the difference this could make for you!
Is it safe to do both a lift and an augmentation at the same time?
Yes! If you know you want both an augmentation and a lift, it is actually better to do them at the same time to avoid the expense of two separate procedures and the planning for two recovery periods. However, because of the number of variables involved in a combination surgery, occasionally a touch-up procedure is needed to reach the optimal result.
Can’t I avoid needing a lift by putting in bigger implants?
No. If your breasts are sagging, only a lift can correct their position. A larger implant will push the nipple forward, but will not lift it and you will simply have large, sagging breasts.
