 Consider Combining Breast Lift And Breast Augmentation For Best Results

Breast lift surgery, also known as breast mastopexy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure meant to lift, reposition, and reshape the breasts, nipples, and areola for women who have become dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding, after significant weight loss, or due to aging or genetics.

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure meant to enhance the size, volume, and projection of the breasts with the use of saline or silicone implants.

Both of these procedures can transform the appearance of your breasts, but neither of these can enhance the size, shape, position, and fullness of your breasts alone. For many women the best procedure to achieve optimal results after breast surgery is breast augmentation mastopexy.

What Is Breast Augmentation Mastopexy?

Quite simply, breast augmentation mastopexy combines the benefits of breast lift and breast augmentation to allow your plastic surgeon to artfully sculpt, lift, and augment your breasts to achieve your desired results from breast surgery in one procedure.

Using mastopexy techniques your plastic surgeon will remove excess skin and fat, lift and reposition breast tissues, and refine the shape and position of the nipple and areola. Your surgeon will also be able to augment the size and volume of your breasts with saline or silicone implants. The result is completely transformed, full, lifted, symmetrical, and proportionate breasts.

What Are The Benefits Of Combining
Breast Lift And Breast Augmentation?

One Surgery, One Recovery
By combining these two cosmetic surgeries in one procedure you will only have one surgical preparation period (no food or drink), one admission, one anaesthetic, one operation, one recovery. This means less time off work and although breast augmentation mastopexy can be considered slightly more invasive than breast lift surgery alone, the recovery time will not be significantly longer and the stages of healing are about the same. The estimated recovery timeline after breast augmentation mastopexy is about six weeks, the same time breast lift and breast augmentation would each require when completed one at a time.

Less Scarring
Whether you are having lift or augmentation surgery alone, or choosing to combine, your surgeon will always be very careful when making surgical incisions. They will strive to conceal them whenever possible within the natural folds and transitions of your breasts, or place them where they can be easily covered by undergarments or a bathing suit. But if you undergo multiple breast surgeries, it becomes more complex to conceal and minimize scarring in subsequent procedures. Breast augmentation mastopexy will allow your plastic surgeon to optimize each incision to refine your breast size and shape.

Save Money
By combining breast lift and augmentation surgeries you can save thousands of dollars. When performed separately, these procedures would require two operation suite bookings, two anaesthetics, two surgeries, and effectively double the cost.  

Exceptional Results
With the ability to integrate the techniques that will provide lift, reshaping, and repositioning with the techniques that can enhance volume, size, and projection, your plastic surgeon will be able to deliver a comprehensive breast transformation with the greatest and longest lasting outcomes.
