Can I Combine a Breast Lift and Breast Implants for Even Better Results?

Published on February 28, 2019

Both the breast lift and breast augmentation with implants are popular cosmetic surgical procedures. They are both quite effective, but performed individually, they may not be enough to correct all your breast-related issues.

For example, a breast lift will raise your breasts so they no longer sag but will not be able to make them fuller. A breast augmentation will add volume to your breasts but will fail to lift your breasts.

If you’re unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts and want to get rid of sagging, you may be wondering if it’s possible to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation. Good news: There’s a way to get both procedures done during a single surgical session, and it’s known as augmentation mastopexy.

Augmentation Mastopexy

Augmentation mastopexy is the combination procedure that pairs a breast lift (mastopexy) with a breast augmentation with implants. Having both the procedures performed together will make your breasts larger and perkier at the same time, making them look more youthful and appealing.

One major benefit of augmentation mastopexy is that the procedure requires only a single recovery period instead of two. This will minimize cost, downtime, and discomfort.

If you’re interested in augmentation mastopexy, it will be helpful to find out more about both of the individual procedures involved.

The Breast Lift

A breast lift involves reshaping and tightening the existing tissues in the area and removing excess skin in order to make the breasts perkier. You can choose to reposition or resize the nipple-areolar complex during a breast lift, too.

The Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation involves insertion of breast implants in order to create new volume and projection.

First, incisions are made. These incisions are strategically made around the areola, in the armpit, or in the breast crease. Pockets are then created in the tissues in order to make space for the implants. The implants are inserted through the incisions.

The implants are placed either beneath the glandular breast tissue or beneath the muscles. When placed below the glandular tissue, the implant creates more cleavage and offers faster healing. When placed beneath the muscles, the implants are provided better support, making the results last longer.

Breast implants are available in different types, and it’s important to pick the one most compatible with your desires and your body. Let’s look at the different options available:

Silicone – Silicone-gel implants are the most popular option, as they are the most realistic and feel quite natural. The downside to these implants is that when they rupture, it is often not easily apparent, making it harder to detect. This is known as a silent rupture.

Saline – Implants full of saline solution can be filled during surgery, making it so they can be inserted empty. Silicone implants must be inserted full, necessitating a larger incision. The drawback with saline implants is that they may feel less natural than the other types of implants available.
