Should A Breast Lift be Combined with Breast Augmentation?

Breast lifts and breast augmentations are separate treatments. In some cases, the procedures are paired to create a flawless look for the patient. 

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. Many factors contribute to sagging breasts, including pregnancy, age, weight loss, and gravity. 

By trimming the excess skin and tightening breast tissue, the breast lift helps bring the breast higher up on the body for a more firm appearance. Breast lifts do not require implant insertion. In general, these lifts remove unwanted skin and tissue. 

What is Breast Augmentation? 

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the size of the breast or addresses asymmetry. It is also the perfect treatment for people who have lost breast volume due to weight loss or pregnancy. 

Implants filled with silicone gel or saline are placed under the breast tissue or the pectoral muscle during an augmentation. Silicone implants feel more natural to the touch than saline implants. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for the Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation Combination?

If you experience any of the following, you might be a good candidate for the breast lift and breast augmentation combination: 

  • Sagging breasts 
  • Breasts that have lost shape or volume 
  • One breast is lower than the other
  • Nipples or areolas pointing downward
  • Breasts that are flat or elongated

If you have any of these qualities, speak with a professional about this course of treatment. The combination of these two treatments creates a full and firm effect.
