What To Know About A Breast Lift With Augmentation
Are you considering a breast lift with augmentation? At the top of the list for the most common plastic surgery procedures are breast augmentation and breast lift. Depending on your age and other factors, you may be happy to know that there are many benefits to combining these two procedures and having them completed at the same time.
Whether it is due to weight gain, weight loss, genetics and/or pregnancy, breasts can lose their perkiness and fullness over the years. These factors and others such as stress, sun exposure, and smoking can also lead to skin laxity, which is the loss of collagen and elastin that causes skin to become loose.
For all of these reasons, you may be considering a breast lift. A breast lift addresses breasts that sag, lifting them higher and removing the loose skin.
While a breast lift addresses where the breasts are in relation to the rest of the body, a breast augmentation addresses the fullness of the breasts. These are two separate procedures, however many patients find it beneficial to have them both done at the same time.
Benefits Of A Breast Lift With Augmentation
Advantages to a combined breast lift with augmentation procedure, include:
- less expensive than two separate procedures
- mitigates risks associated with two surgeries
- patients do not have to wait for the results they want in the interim between procedures
- the combination benefits patients with weakened breast tissue
- prevents future complications caused by skin laxity, or loss of elasticity in the skin
- gives you natural looking breasts
- no additional down time or recovery time, versus having one of the procedures
When a surgeon removes loose skin, that removal must be balanced with the size of the new implant going in if you are also considering an augmentation. Dr. Yospur’s expertise and extreme attention to detail will ensure to find this balance that is right for you.
