Benefits of Combined Breast Augmentation and Lift Surgery

July 18, 2019

As women get older, sagging breasts become more likely. This is simply the nature of aging. As the production of collagen diminishes, skin loses its elasticity, which means wrinkles, lines, and the loss of firmness and suppleness all over the body. Genetics and gravity will also contribute to the eventual drooping of the breasts.

The amount of sagging can vary, but the bottom line is that women would generally prefer to have perkier, firmer, and rounder breasts no matter their age. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marcus H. Crawford has helped many patients in the greater Atlanta, GA area treat their sagging breasts. This typically involves surgical lift techniques or silicone and saline implants. It turns out that these two surgeries can be combined for optimal results. Let’s explore the combined breast augmentation and lift and go over its benefits below.

How Combined Breast Augmentation and Lift Works

The combined breast augmentation and breast lift helps make the breasts perkier and can increase their size in the process. During this surgery, a plastic surgeon places a breast implant while simultaneously removing excess skin and tissue from the breast. In the process, the breast looks rounder and firmer.

In short, it’s the best aspects of each surgery put together.

Reduces Unwanted Drooping

Thanks to combined breast augmentation and lift, patients will experience far less drooping. Since the implant adds volume and firmness to the breasts, a plastic surgeon may not need to remove as much breast tissue or use extensive incisions.

Adds Firmness and Perkiness to Breasts

Performing breast lift surgery alone can reduce the sagging of the breasts, but it doesn’t necessary address problems with breast texture. Thanks to silicone and saline implants, the texture of the breasts is firmer and yet still natural. This makes the look and feel of the breasts much more ideal.

Increases or Maintains Cup Size

A breast lift alone can sometimes lead to the loss of volume and shape to the bustline. By using breast implants during the procedure, patients are able to maintain the current size of their breasts but with better appearance. It is also possible to increase a patient’s breast size through the surgery.

Helps Address Breast Asymmetry

Sagging breasts rarely sag in an even way. One breast may hang lower than the other or be a different size. Combining breast implants with lift techniques helps address problems with asymmetry. Women no longer need to worry about lopsided breasts thanks to this surgery.

Increased Confidence and Self-Esteem

By undergoing a combined breast augmentation and lift, patients will experience a much needed boost to their self-esteem. This is important for people who suffer from self-confidence and body image issues as a result of their drooping or sagging breasts.
