Breast augmentation surgery is a way to increase the size and projection of the breasts using breast implants. A breast lift surgery is a way to uplift and reshape the breasts in order to correct excessive sagginess. Because many women are looking for a method of enhancing both the size and shape of their breasts, both of these procedures can be combined into a single procedure: augmentation mastopexy.
For augmenting breasts through surgery, you can opt for implants. With implants, you can significantly augment your breasts irrespective of their natural size. The procedure can improve breast projection and size very effectively.
You can opt for either silicone or saline implants for breast augmentation. Saline implants offer the benefit of being able to adjust their size during surgery, as they do not come pre-filled. Silicone implants come pre-filled but look more natural than saline implants.
The Breast Lift
The breast lift procedure can correct the droopiness in breasts that occurs due to aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or hereditary factors. It can also resize, reshape, and reposition the nipple-areolar complex. It is a very effective procedure to make breasts appear perkier and more youthful.
The procedure involves the removal of excess tissues and the tightening of the remaining tissues to make the breasts look perkier and lifted. Once the procedure is complete, sutures are used to close the incisions that were created.
Combining a Breast Augmentation with a Breast Lift
If your breast size is naturally small, a breast lift alone cannot restore full perkiness in them. If you have lost volume in your breasts due to weight loss or aging, a breast lift won’t be as effective when attempting to make them look fuller again. In cases like these, you can combine a breast lift with breast augmentation to make your breasts appear more beautiful.
Another benefit of a combined breast surgery is that you may be able to get a smaller implant size, as a breast lift will add some volume to the breasts and also uplift them. Your breasts will look naturally uplifted and fuller.
Combined procedures can also reduce surgical costs, since you’ll be having both procedures done during the course of a single surgical session. You will only need to have a single recovery period, which will save you time and money.
