Breast augmentation is one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures because of the aesthetic benefits and personal satisfaction patients enjoy after surgery.
Although it’s possible to improve the appearance of the breasts with breast augmentation alone, a lift is sometimes needed to achieve the best results. But can you get a breast augmentation and a breast lift at the same time?
Yes, a breast augmentation and breast lift can be performed at the same time. At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we perform breast augmentation-mastopexy for women concerned with both the size and position of their breasts. Let’s take a closer look at breast augmentation and breast lift surgeries to understand why you may need one or both procedures.
Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the size of the breasts using silicone or saline implants. Breast augmentation gives the breasts a fuller, rounder look.
Breast implants may be placed below the chest muscle (submuscular) or under the breast tissue and above the muscle (subglandular). Breast augmentation can also be done with fat transfer.
Do you need a Breast Augmentation?
If you are unhappy with the size of your naturally small breasts or would like to add fullness lost due to pregnancy or other factors, you would be a good candidate for breast augmentation.
Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift or mastopexy is a cosmetic surgical procedure that lifts sagging breasts. Breasts sag over time due to the effect of factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, and gravity. A breast lift reshapes the breasts and gives them a perkier, more youthful appearance.
During a breast lift, your surgeon will remove excess skin and reshape the breast tissue.
Do You Need a Breast Lift?
If you have droopy breasts, considerable skin laxity, or your nipples fall below the level of your breast fold, you would be a good candidate for a breast lift.
Difference Between a Breast Augmentation And a Breast Lift
Breast augmentation enhances the fullness of the breasts but does not address sagging. A breast lift reshapes and elevates the breasts but does not add volume.
Do You Need A Breast Augmentation And a Breast Lift?
If you would like to increase the size of your breasts, but you also have breast sagging, a combination breast lift with implants may be the right option for you. Why? Because increasing the size of your breasts will not eliminate sagging.
Breast augmentation is often done in conjunction with a breast lift to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.
During your consultation, it is important to discuss your aesthetic goals with Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips to determine if you need a combination breast lift with implants to obtain the results you want to achieve. Doing both procedures at the same time is a quick, effective option. It also means having to deal with a single recovery period.
Combining breast augmentation and a breast lift will add volume to the breasts and make them perkier and more youthful. Starting price for breast augmentation with breast lift is $9,900.
