When Is Breast Augmentation with Lift a Good Option?

When breasts droop or sag in a pronounced way, there are many cosmetic surgery options to address this issue. Undergoing a breast augmentation with lift has been an ideal option for many women who’ve come to our practice. The surgery involves placement of a breast implant while removing excess breast tissue. The result is larger breasts that are perkier, better shaped, and larger.

We’d like to go over some of the basics of the combined breast augmentation and lift, and discuss who is an ideal candidate for this breast enhancement procedure.

How Breast Augmentation with Lift Works

A breast augmentation with lift essentially brings together the benefits of a traditional breast augmentation and breast lift (mastopexy).

  • During breast augmentation, a silicone or saline breast implant is placed to increase breast size.
  • During a breast lift, excess tissue and skin is removed to help the breasts appear pert, firm, and rounder.

By combining an increase in size and an improvement in shape and perkiness, patients can achieve some remarkable aesthetic results.

A Good Option for Major Breast Sagging

Breast augmentation with lift is often a good option for women who’ve experienced extreme breast sagging. Rather than just remove breast tissue to make breasts perkier, an implant can be used to improve breast firmness and shape. In many cases, the implant can reduce the number and/or size of incisions required to achieve optimal lift outcomes.

Ideal for Treating Breast Asymmetry

If a woman has asymmetrical breasts, a breast lift is one way to even out the size of each breast. By adding an implant to the equation, plastic surgeons have more control over the size and shape of the corrected breast. Added control over the size and shape of a breast typically leads to better overall results.

Excellent for Patients Who Want to Enhance Breast Size

Sometimes women with sagging breasts don’t just want to restore their perkiness. A patient may have always wanted a boost in size as well. Thanks to the combined breast augmentation and lift, both aesthetic outcomes are possible in a single surgery.

An Effective Anti-Aging Option

Sagging breasts are a common sign of the aging process. The loss of skin elasticity and the effects of gravity can lead to some unwanted changes to your body shape. Thanks to the combined breast augmentation and lift, your figure can look much younger and fitter.

Great to Reverse the Effects of Major Weight Loss

In addition to anti-aging benefits, the combined breast augmentation and lift can also reverse the signs of massive weight loss. The procedure helps address loose skin around the chest after bariatric surgery or childbirth. It’s not uncommon for a breast augmentation with lift to be part of a total body lift after major weight loss or a mommy-plasty makeover.
